Polish systems integration firm 4Vision recently installed a 52-fader HARMAN Studer Vista 9 console as part of a broadcast production system for ATM System’s new HD2 OB truck. The ATM HD2 OB truck measures 16.7 meters long and four meters wide, with two pullout walls that create an area of over 45 square meters, allowing for up to 25 people to work comfortably. The HD2 OB truck marks the first installation of a Studer Vista 9 console in Poland. “System integration for the truck was completed in four months,” said Maria Pirga, president of 4Vision. “The first transmission was done one week after the truck was completed, for a football match.” “The Vista 9 is a very stable system and is able to handle anything we require of it,” said Mariusz Nowak, audio engineer for ATM System. Nowak’s favorite feature of the Vista 9 is its History display. “It’s very useful if for some reason the audio drops out on one channel but you can’t tell which one it was,” he said. “The Studer Histogram feature allows you to easily spot the channel where the audio dropped and you can react immediately, making the required adjustments. It’s the same if there is an unexpected signal overload in a particular channel. The red indications in the History display can’t be overseen and you can react right away. This is a very unique feature.”www.harman.com
