Tel Aviv’s Mizmor HD buys Harman Studer Vista 1 for sports and more
Mizmor HD Productions, based in Tel Aviv, recently purchased a 32-fader HARMAN Studer Vista 1 digital console through Kilim Electronics, Studer’s Israeli distributor. Under the 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 a Vista 1 and Compact Stagebox have been installed, replacing the previous analogue console.
After 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.
The system was installed quickly and soon felt familiar to Mizmor HD personnel. Kilim Electronics’ MD Meir Kilim, whose Haifa-based company supplied all the services, remarks: “In fact, they started working only a quarter of an hour after the installation was complete – without the need to study the manual.”
