Radio-Canada Acadie Takes To The Air With Studer Vista 5

In the first use of a Studer Vista 5 console in a CBC/Radio-Canada facility, Radio-Canada Acadie with main studios located in Moncton, New Brunswick recently purchased a Vista 5 for its television studio. Sold through Solotech Inc., the Vista 5 console features 32 faders in a 42-fader chassis.

Graeme Pennifold, Channel Seven’s Engineering Manager, states that there were other contenders but that they very soon focused on the Studer from an operational view.

?We liked the Vistonics control on the Studer, in fact that’s what really sold us, but we were more
