The Most Advanced User Interface Just Got Even Better: Studer Releases Vista 9 Digital Console

Date: 22/06/2010
vista 9 Following on from the Vista 5, 6, 7 and 8 desks, the Vista 9 takes the operator experience to a higher level, supplementing the Vistonics™ interface with radical and innovative 'wide screen' based TFT metering, FaderGlow™ and numerous other innovations.

The new metering really does give precision feedback on signal status. The channel meters are able to show mono--right through to 7.1 channel signals--in the upper section of the screen, while the lower portion can show bus assignment or for surround channels an image of the surround composite, providing a clear and easily understandable display of the surround signal. 
 
Alternatively, a unique HISTORY mode records events such as overloads in the audio path of each channel, and highlights them in red on the channel waveform. The operator can then review which channel had such an event, up to 30 seconds after the event has occurred. Furthermore, all stereo inputs and stereo masters have a correlation meter bar above the bargraph display.
 
The Control Bay meter section can be configured to show any choice of output busses and input channels and displays up to 40 meters at the time.
 
Studer's patented Vistonics has won many friends worldwide thanks to its speed and ease of use and affinity to the analogue channel-strip way of working. Each touch-sensitive TFT screen shows 10 channel strips, with rotary encoders and switches mounted directly onto the screen, providing the operator with 'Where you look is where you control' ergonomics.
 
During a hectic live production, the context oriented FaderGlow™ provides the operator with an instant overview of the console status by illuminating each fader in one of eight freely-assignable colours. Suddenly it's easy to see exactly where your channel groups are, dramatically increasing reaction time and reducing the stress of mixing in an environment where there is no second chance.
 
The new Vista 9 gives you absolute freedom to place input, as well as master channels, anywhere across the surface. You decide how you want your mixing session laid out. From surround input channels with an intuitive input balance section to stereo input channels with a 5.1 up-mixing panner to automatic down-mixer processes for outputs, the Vista 9 has all the practical tools for today's and tomorrow's surround productions built-in. This includes dual speaker group 7.1 control room monitoring connectivity integrated into the desk.
 
Drawing on more than 60 years of experience in the design of rock-solid, industry-proven broadcast equipment, failsafe redundancy comes as standard with the Vista 9. Dual PSU's as well as a dual control system ensures that component failure doesn't mean loss of control over the mix, while a redundant network system keeps up the vital communication to the DSP core.
 
The Vista 9 integrates nicely with other Studer Vista and OnAir consoles and Routers by making use of the Studer RELINK network technology. Communication to third party control systems is also provided, making the Vista 9 a future-proof investment.
 
The Studer Vista 9 has already shipped to the first customer installations, and is in full production. The Vista 9 will be on show for the first time at the Broadcast Equipment Exhibition of the Shanghai TV Festival and KOBA the following week.
