Vista Studios can support a wide range of HD, 4K, UHD, HDR and IP projects within its new 30,000 sq. ft. facility in Los Angeles.

The new Los Angeles Vista Studios production facility is entirely built on single-wire 12Gbps 4K-SDI/SMPTE Fiber, which can handle both baseband and IP signals. Studios like Vista don’t currently exist in Los Angeles,” said Co-founder/CEO Randall Heer.

While the facility relies heavily on Snell Advanced Media (SAM) equipment for major components, Heer says it is agnostic when it comes to its post production services. Clients can select from AdobeAvid and Apple (Final Cut Pro) editing suites. Even the cameras are chosen based on client needs, with HD and 4K models available from Grass ValleySony and others.
