The 52-fader Studer Vista V is based on the same Quad Star technology as the earlier Vista X, but in a more footprint suited to smaller studios, OB trucks and large live productions.

Studer Vista VThe Vista V features a meter bridge, high-quality motorised faders, and a dynamic automation system with DAW remote control. The console is fully surround-sound capable, with versatile panning and monitoring.

At the heart of the Vista V is the Infinity Core, which supports 800-plus audio channels and more than 5,000 inputs and outputs. The use of CPU-based processors suggests exciting possibilities for scaling up to even larger channel counts, and for running third-party algorithms. Being able to program in high-level languages like C++ speeds up implemention of new features over using DSPs and FPGA processing.

Infinity Core provides 12 high-capacity A-Link ports (1,536 channels per port) for D23m I/O integration or direct connection into routing systems from Artel, Evertz and Riedel. The Vista V also offers easy integration into most AoIP networks used in broadcast like Dante and Livewire, and AES67.

The Vista V with Quad Star technology uses four processors to achieve aviation-standard levels of redundancy in the control surface, while CPU-based DSP makes it viable to provide two completely independent DSP cores running in parallel with instant changeover.

The Vista V also comes with VistaMix, Studer’s proprietary automated microphone mixing algorithm, based on gain sharing ideal for simplifying the mixing task at multi-contributor events like game shows and debates. VistaMix removes the need for an operator to manually adjust all the faders all the time, leaving the microphones of talking participants open, while closing the microphones of silent participants in order to reduce spill and background noise. As VistaMix runs directly on the core, no external boxes are needed.

Studer’s Vistonics interface builds Vista V’s rotary controls and buttons directly into the flat screen displays. FaderGlow combines with assignable channel naming to further reduce stress by illuminating each fader in the colour relating to the relevant Vistonics function, creating an instant overview of console status. Studer’s new Spill Zone feature enables users to line up a group’s contributing channels with the press of just one button. FaderGlow then identifies their affiliation assigning the appropriate illumination.

The Vista V also features a built-in, high-class Loudness meter. The large-scale bargraph meter monitors every channel from mono to surround, plus a history display of up to the last 50 seconds of audio to capture any annoying clicks and overloads that are so hard to find in a multi-mic live show.

Built into the Vista V is the BSS DPR-901 dynamic EQ plug-in, assignable to any channel as desired and running directly on the Infinity Core. In addition, up to six Lexicon PCM96 Surround reverb processors can be connected with their parameters stored in the mixer’s snap shots and accessible directly from the Vistonics interface.

The Vista V also allows users to connect up to four Soundcraft Realtime Racks, providing access to Universal Audio’s (UAD) huge Plug-In library assignable on up to 64 Insert-Channels where their parameters are stored and managed directly in the Mixer’s Cue-List automation.
