Israel – Mizmor HD Productions, based in Tel Aviv, has recently purchased a
32-fader HARMAN Studer Vista 1 digital console through Kilim Electronics,
Studer’s Israeli distributor.
direction of Daniel Lankry, Mizmor HD has grown steadily since being founded in
1992 and today has four sophisticated HD OB vans, including
the largest in Israel,
broadcasting mainly sport and national events. It is in this OB, which can
accommodate up to 14 cameras, that the Vista 1 and Compact Stagebox have been
installed, replacing the previous analogue console.
considering all options, the purchasing decision was based on the superior
facilities of the Studer console and the service/backup Mizmor knew it would
receive from Kilim Electronics.
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. This makes it the ideal
choice when space is restricted, such as in OB and ENG vans.
Thanks to the patented Vistonics™ user interface, with 40 on-screen rotary
knobs, the Vista 1’s look and feel is identical to that of the larger, more
van’s technicians say their excitement on taking delivery was eclipsed by the
speed of installation (which they undertook themselves). They then discovered
just how easy the Vista 1 was to operate.
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.
