  • Infinity Core • Studer's immensely scalable Infinity Core brings unprecedented processing power on standard CPU hardware, available as either a standalone appliance or as software for use with a COTS server.
  • Vistonics™ • Vista 5 BE incorporates the unique Vistonics user interface which ensures quick and easy console operation-the key to a smooth workflow, short production time, and trouble-free live transmission.
  • FaderGlow™ • During a hectic live production, FaderGlow provides the operator with an instant overview of the console status by illuminating each fader in one of eight, freely-assignable colours.
  • Vista FX • Studer offers as a cost option Lexicon® PCM96 Surround (up to 6 Engines) high quality surround effects for the Vista 5 BE, controlled directly from the Vistonics™ user interface.
  • Loudness Meter • The Vista 5 M3 makes use of dual colour bargraph meters on each fader, along with integral loudness metering in the master section. This keeps the surface as compact as possible whilst providing metering info for mono, stereo, as well as front and rear maximum levels of surround channels.
  • Surround Sound • Studer's unique Virtual Surround Panning (VSP II) fits the Vista 5 BE perfectly. It allows the operator to take mono sources and create a realistic sound field (stereo up to 5.1), modelled around a few simple parameters.
