Maidstone, UK (August 5, 2013)-The UK's largest independent TV facility, Maidstone Studios, recently installed a Harman Studer Vista 5 digital audio console.
The Vista 5 was part of an upgrade to HD in the facility's Studio 2. An essential part of the upgrade was the audio system, and with a tight timescale of just under three weeks to refurbish the studios including a large amount of HD cabling and gallery monitoring, it was paramount that a seamless transition in operations was achieved.
"With a Studer Vista 8 already installed for some years in Studio 1, it made sense to provide commonality of operation across studios so the Vista 5 was a logical choice," said Rowland Kinch, CEO of Maidstone Studios. "We've been very happy with Studer and the support they give us. We love the Vista's instant snapshot functions and it's a great live production platform for us. The consoles also share common hardware and cards, so support is made much easier for us."
