Tokyo, Japan (December 6, 2004) — Top Japanese broadcaster Fuji TV recently integrated a Studer Vista 6 digital audio console into its Tokyo facility, which is now using the desk for program production and on-air broadcasting. This is one of the first imported digital consoles to be purchased by Fuji TV, as well as one of the largest Vista consoles ever produced by Studer in terms of core size and I/O.
The 50-fader Vista 6 was supplied with 96 mic inputs, 52 analog line inputs, 112 analog line outputs, and 72 AES channels of I/O along with 17 DSP cards in the core. Fuji TV is using the console in studio V2, where it produces EZ-TV, a weekly live program about news and entertainment, Gokigenyo, Kazuki Kosakai’s popular talk show that airs daily on weekdays, and Junk Sports, a variety talk show with professional sports players broadcasting on Sunday evening.
“This project was very important for Studer,” said Ian Staddon, Studer’s director of Asia/Pacific sales, “resulting in the placing of one of our digital consoles into a very prestigious company. It was the culmination of tireless effort, support and great teamwork from Studer Japan, who worked closely with Fuji TV’s engineers to ensure we provided them with the functionality they required. The final result is one of which Studer and Studer Japan can be very proud.”
With over 1300 people on staff and branch offices in Osaka, Nagoya, Yokohama, and Maebashi, Fuji TV is Japan’s leading broadcaster. The Tokyo facility, where the Vista 6 is installed, houses ten TV production studios as part of a 28-station network.
