Further extending its world-class live production capabilities, All Mobile Video (AMV) recently purchased a Studer Vista 8 console for its new Epic 3D mobile production truck. The Vista 8 is fully 7.1 surround sound capable, with 72 faders and up to 250 inputs. The Epic truck was first used on July 21 for a 3D and 2D taping of Sheryl Crow in concert at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City.
All Mobile Video is the country's premier provider of end-to-end video and audio solutions for entertainment, sports, and news programming and events. The company offers the full spectrum of services--from spacious Manhattan-based sound stages with full post-production capabilities to mobile production and editing trucks and extensive uplink solutions that travel worldwide--as well as an extensive equipment inventory that allows them to fully custom spec any facility or location.
The Epic truck features a large audio room which, in addition to the Vista 8 console's in-truck I/O complement, includes Studer stageboxes with up to 96 additional inputs.
This is the fifth Vista 8 that AMV has purchased for its mobile productions trucks. "AMV is one of the earliest and largest companies in the U.S. to commit heavily to the Studer Vista 8," says Lee Blanco of AMV. "The advantages the Vista 8 offers are considerable and when the time came to choose a digital console for our new Epic truck, the Vista 8 was a natural fit."
The Vista 8 digital console incorporates the worldwide-acclaimed Vistonics™ user interface, providing unmatched analog console-like control and a host of other groundbreaking features. The Vista 8 possesses powerful broadcast features to offer a highly sophisticated and flexible multipurpose live broadcast desk. For example, its unique Control Bay design offers rapid access to all faders in a small footprint, making it ideal for both fixed install broadcast and OB van applications.
Eric Duke, President of AMV, remarks, "AMV is pleased to have partnered with Studer in deploying the finest audio-equipped, 2D/3D-capable mobile units in the business!"
