Studer Vista 5 SR at AES Show

At the
AES, Studer unveils the new Vista 5 SR, a road-ready version of its established

Vista 5 model, with a specification
appropriate for top-end touring customers. The Vista 5 SR is a compact,
portable and easy-to-setup console which boasts all the trademarks of Studer
design: exceptional sound quality, reliability and the proven Vistonics user

Studer’s third-generation digital console, the

5, is already in use in prestigious theatres, studios and performing arts
centres around the world. Vista 5 SR has evolved out of the suggestions of
leading international touring sound companies and engineers, who saw the

Vista 5 and realised its potential to become a dedicated
live sound desk.

Peter Weber, Studer’s Product Manager for the Vista Series, explains: “We
showed the Vista 5 to influential people in north America including Howard Page
at Clair Brothers, Bob Goldstein at Maryland Sound International (MSI), and the
Celine Dion team (Denis Savage, Frankie Desjardins and Charles Ethier), and
everybody was so impressed they suggested we make a road version. So we’ve
re-engineered the mechanics of the console for touring use, including new
frames and racks, and incorporated many other suggestions of these and other
international tour sound specialists.”

In advance of the console’s official launch, Studer is already shipping its
first orders; two consoles for Solotech, which will be used on Celine Dion’s
World Tour next year, and two consoles for MSI, with whom Studer will be
promoting the new desk at the AES in

York. Interest is already growing from other
high-profile companies and engineers.

The Vistonics user interface is largely responsible for the reaction of these
users. Vistonics is the Studer-patented technology already familiar to
broadcasters, a version of which has already proved popular on Soundcraft’s Vi
Series™ of Digital Live Sound consoles. Vistonics uses an array of encoders
mounted directly into TFT screens to give immediate viewing and access of
channel and output parameters. Freelance engineers will be able to use the
console within minutes, while experienced users will become more creative,
thanks to the speed of operation.
