Following on from the Vista 5, 6, 7, and 8 desks, the Vista 9 supplements the Vistonics interface with "wide screen" based TFT metering, FaderGlow and other innovations.
Alternatively, a 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.
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.
The context oriented FaderGlow is designed to provide the operator with an overview of the console status by illuminating each fader in one of eight freely-assignable colours.
The new Vista 9 gives you freedom to place input, as well as master channels, anywhere across the surface. You can 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 practical tools for surround productions built-in. This includes dual speaker group 7.1 control room monitoring connectivity integrated into the desk.
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 manufacturer assures.
The Vista 9 is designed to integrate 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, according to Studer.
