Studer Upgrades the Vista 5
Studer’s Vista 5 console gets an upgrade to the M2 with the optional addition of the TFT metering system introduced on the Vista 9 console.
The new metering is capable of displaying signal levels from mono through to 5.1 channels on each input, with a configurable lower area which can be used to display bus assignments, surround images or the History mode, where a scrolling audio waveform displays signal anomalies and highlights them for up to 50 seconds to allow the engineer to identify where the event occurred. Metering for ‘layer 2’ signals can also be viewed, while the Control Bay screen can be used to provide configurable user pages with up to 40 meters.
When the TFT meter bridge is fitted, the external GC screen becomes an integral part of the chassis.
The Vista 5 M2 is based on the Vista 5 console. Existing Vista 5 owners can upgrade to the M2 version, which is a simple add-on to the console chassis.
The Vista 5 M2 is available in two frame sizes, 32 and 42 fader.
