An overview of the new Studer Vista 5 M2 Digital Production console, combining all the acclaimed features of the Vista 5 with the option of integral TFT-based metering. The new metering, introduced on the Vista 5, is highly configurable, and can display channel signals from mono through to 5.1 surround. The lower section of the screen can be configured to show bus assignments, surround image mapping or the unique History mode where channel overloads or artifacts can be shown in a scrolling audio waveform.
The Vista 5 uses the acclaimed Vistonics™ user interface, which provides a simple yet clear operating surface which is as familiar as an analogue console. Using encoders mounted onto a TFT screen allows the engineer to control channel parameters at the same place the channel is located, unlike other digital console systems where continual reference to a central screen is required.
