April 29, 2005
NAB Las Vegas, April 2005: Studer were the proud recipients of a ‘Top Innovator Award’ at NAB in Las Vegas, when Television Broadcast magazine selected the Vista 8 Digital Mixing Console for one of only two awards for audio products at the major broadcast exhibition.
Studer President Bruno Hochstrasser was justifiably proud of the award. “Only 26 Awards were given by Television Broadcast at the whole show, which covered transmission, video editing, cameras and all forms of visual media, so to be chosen for audio innovation is really a great honour for us at Studer.
"Not only is the Vista 8 highly-intuitive, the use of Vistonics makes operation simple and was a big winner with our panel of audio judges," said Michael Silbergleid, editor and associate publisher of Television Broadcast magazine.
“Winning a Top Innovation award lets manufacturers know that their product has a definitive positive impact on the operations of television production and that their contribution to the industry is recognized." said Michael.
The Studer Vista 8 digital live production console combines and extends the powerful on-air features of the Vista 6 with the dynamic automation of the Vista 7 to create a highly sophisticated and flexible multipurpose live broadcast desk. In addition to common Vista series features like the intuitive Vistonics interface, Virtual Surround Panning (VSP) and AutoTouch Plus dynamic automation, the Vista 8 offers a completely redesigned central control bay, greatly extended output metering and matrixing, and a host of other significant features.
