The National Theatre of Japan has installed two Studer Vista 6 digital live broadcast consoles and a D950 digital production console to provide an all-digital surround sound system in its Tokyo auditorium. A 40-fader Vista 6 with 96 mic inputs, 48 line inputs and 12 AES/EBU digital inputs was specified to provide the main front-of-house and monitor mix, and a 20-fader Vista 6 with 32 mic inputs, 56 line inputs and 16 AES/EBU digital inputs is used for sound effects.

Both consoles have identical output configurations, providing 16 group outputs and 16 mono auxiliary outputs, and each console feeds a 32x32 digital matrix, which provides level control and delay facilities. The outputs from these two matrices then feed a 64x64 matrix with EQ and level control. This matrix facility is provided by a D950 M2 console fitted with a central assignment section and eight faders.

The system was used for the first time on February 11, 2004, for Japan's National Foundation Day.
