DIGI Sport takes on Studer Vista 5

Hungarian sports channel DIGI Sport recently purchased a 42-channel Studer Vista 5 digital mixing console for the newly launched DIGI Sport Plus.

As a 24-hour sports channel, DIGI Sport Plus was launched as an extension of the DIGI Sport channel, televising a wide range of live sporting events.

This is the second Studer Vista 5 console for DIGI Sport, which purchased a 32-channel Vista 5 in 2010. Both consoles were sold through Studer’s Hungarian distributor, Audio Partner.

The Vista 5 console is based on the Vistonics control interface, which is designed to offer visual reference at the exact place at which a parameter is changed. Furthermore, the inputs and outputs, as well as the entire DSP capacity, are completely scalable.

“The control surface of the Vista 5 makes operation of the console very intuitive and the Vistonics user interface allows us to easily see what we’re doing when mixing,” said Zoltan Szele, sound engineer for DIGI Sport. “The Vista 5 allows us to easily build a bigger networked system, and we now have two consoles sharing I/O’s.”
