The Vista 5 SR desk, a road-ready version of Studer's Vista 5 console, features the Vistonics user interface. Vistonics is the Studer-patented technology that uses an array of encoders mounted directly into TFT screens to give immediate viewing and access of channel and output parameters.
The Vista 5 SR comes with preset configurations for front-of-house and monitor use. A stand-alone Config Editor tool allows the channel/bus structure to be customized, all of which can be saved for each particular show setup and instantly recalled from memory or a USB stick at a later date.
Also key is the expandable I/O system, in which the whole range of available Studer D21m Series I/O cards (including CobraNet and Aviom A-Net) can be added to the system. The MADI standard is used as optical snake link from stagebox to FOH rack, with the possibility to add a redundant snake for increased security.
The Vista 5 SR also comes with numerous facilities to aid production, including Studer’s proprietary VSP panning system, which can be used to great effect to control panning without level shifts.
Studer has already taken an order from Solotech for two consoles to be used on Celine Dion’s world tour next year, as well as an order for two consoles from MSI.
