Hardstudios in Winterthur, Switzerland has installed a Studer Vista 5 console in its Hardmobile outside-broadcast van (pictured). The Hardmobile unit is a Ford Transit van that is capable of both two-track and 48-channel multitrack recordings. According to Hardstudios’ Moritz Wetter, the Vista 5 was chosen “because of the famous Studer sound quality, its ability to handle a large number of channels in a very small space and because we have trusted Studer products for 25 years.”
The Hardmobile unit is being used for mobile recordings and live broadcasts of open-air events and concerts all over Switzerland. Hardstudios also handles TV production in collaboration with video partner companies.
