Studer Vista Digital Consoles Prepare To Hit The Road For 2008 Olympics


China’s leading
media providers gear up for next year’s Olympic Games, Studer’s Vista Series
digital consoles figure prominently in the new Outside Broadcast vehicles,
especially those with a high definition specification.

TV, Beijing TV and the Shanghai Media Group are currently installing
large-format Vista 8 audio consoles into new
vehicles that are being prepared for live broadcast and production duties at
the Olympics. The vehicles for Beijing TV and Guangdong TV are both HD vans,
following closely in the footsteps of CCTV in Central China, the country’s
biggest broadcaster, which chose
Vista 8 for
its latest flagship HDTV vehicle. In all cases, Studer’s reputation for
reliability and the Vista Series’ user-friendly Vistonics(tm) interface,
convinced the customers to choose the
Vista 8
instead of an array of alternatives from European manufacturers.

TV has a 32-fader Vista 8 model, while Beijing TV’s HD van will house both a
52-fader Vista 8 and a Studer OnAir 3000 digital mixer, like Shanghai Media
Group’s HD vehicle, which will feature a 42-fader Vista 8 plus 24-fader OnAir

Shanghai Media Group is also installing the compact 32-fader Vista 5 console
into a 5.1 audio van, like four regional TV companies, which have all chosen
Studer’s latest design for high-def

Jinan TV,
Heilongjiang TV in Jarbin, Inner Mongolia TV and Dalian TV are all launching
new HD vehicles for live broadcast and production. According to Rico Fung of
ACE International, Studer’s import agent for China, “It is rather
remarkable to see five HD-format OB trucks under construction, which are all
specifying Studer Vista digital audio consoles. In every case, it is Studer’s
reliability that proves the decisive factor in the tender, together with the
ease of operation and the exceptional audio quality of the consoles.”
