Studer Vista Series Digital Consoles Are the Favorite of Top Talk Show Engineers
November 24, 2010
LOS ANGELES, California – Studer’s Vista 9 and Vista 8 digital mixing consoles have quickly become a favorite of broadcast engineers, thanks to features like their easy to use Vistonics™ touchscreen interface, fast, flexible operation that’s ideally suited to a live TV environment, and pristine sound quality. Currently, Vista 9 and Vista 8 consoles are being used on “Dr. Phil,” “NFL on FOX,” “The Martha Stewart Show,” “The Wendy Williams Show” and many other popular shows, and most recently, for “Conan,” the new Conan O’Brien show on TBS.
All Mobile Video is the country’s premier provider of end-to-end video and audio broadcast solutions for entertainment, sports, and news programming and events. They provide a complete range of on-site and mobile services, with the ability to handle any broadcast production requirement from daily TV broadcasts to major sporting events. Currently, All Mobile Video is using Studer Vista 8 consoles on “The Martha Stewart Show,” “Tyra” (“The Tyra Banks Show”) and “The Wendy Williams Show.”
Respected industry veteran Mike Stock has been the production sound mixer on a wide variety of television programs including “Dr. Phil,” “The Doctors,” “NFL on Fox,” “The Bachelor” and “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien,” as well as numerous live events on the TV Guide channel. Stock is also the production sound mixer for “Conan,” the new late-night talk show featuring Conan O’Brien, which debuted November 8 on TBS. The production facility for the show uses two Vista 9 consoles. “Conan” is taped before a live audience from Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California.
“One of my favorite features of the Vista consoles is the strip setup. Being able to move inputs to the center section of the desk means I’m never mixing out of the sweet spot,” Stock said. “I’m also enjoying the Vista 9 with the added control bay features and the upgrades to the meters.”
The Studer Vista 9 and Vista 8 are ultimate-performance digital mixing consoles with an exclusive, configurable Vistonics user interface and, on the Vista 9, new user-definable FaderGlow and TFT meters, including History Mode, that provide a clear, easily understandable display of all operating parameters along with fast, easy operation. The Vista 9 and Vista 8 offer additional advanced features such as 7.1-channel surround-sound mixing capability, dynamic automation, a sophisticated snapshot system, dedicated mute groups and much more. Both consoles enable seamless integration with other Studer products via Studer RELINK network technology.
