South Jakarta, Indonesia (January 4, 2011)—Broadcaster SCTV (Surya Citra Televisi) in South Jarkarta brought in a Harman Studer Vista 5 SR digital mixing console for its 2011 SCTV Awards.
For the awards show, SCTV—one of Indonesia’s largest TV stations—contracted Melodia Rental of Surabaya, Indonesia to provide the audio system, including a Studer Vista 5 SR as the live sound front-of-house console. Melodia owner Rudy Winarto’s recently purchased the Vista 5 SR.
Dien Anugrah, the audio engineer for the awards telecast, commented that the Vista 5 SR provided a major step forward. “I fell in love with the Vista 5 after using it for just one day,” Anugrah noted. “Its sound quality is outstanding-it’s so warm and clean. The mic preamps are especially well suited for live broadcast.”
“I found the console interface to be extremely user friendly,” Anugrah added. “The Vista 5’s control layout enabled me to operate the console for the 2011 SCTV awards with almost no learning curve. I look forward to using the Vista 5 again in upcoming events. It really is designed with people like me in mind, who need a great sounding, reliable console they can depend on day in and day out.”
