Mizmor upgrades OB van with HARMAN28 November 2013
Mizmor HD productions, based in Tel Aviv, has purchased a 32-fader HARMAN Studer Vista 1 digital console through Studer’s Israeli distributor, Kilim Electronics.
Mizmor has four HD OB vans including the largest in Israel, which can accommodate up to 14 cameras. HARMAN’s Vista 1 and Compact Stagebox will be installed in the vehicle, replacing the previous analogue console. The Vista 1 is a transportable all-in-one digital mixing console for broadcast, live and production use, with the control surface, I/O system, DSP and power supplies all contained within the console.
The Vistonics user interface, with 40 on-screen rotary knobs, means the Vista 1’s look and feel is identical to that of the larger Vistas. Its compact design makes it a suitable choice when space is restricted, such as in OB and ENG vans.
The OB van’s technicians praised the speed of installation, which they undertook themselves, as well as the ease of operation of the console. “In fact they started working only a quarter of an hour after the installation was complete—without the need to study the manual,” reported Kilim Electronics’ MD Meir Kilim, whose Haifa-based company again supplied all the services.
