I think the pad is just a surface to stand on or place cargo on. Once transported there would be no pad at the target location and we have seen that the transporter gets locked on targets that haven't been transported before I.e. haven't been on the pad before.
This. With point to point transporting why have a pad at all?

Re: One Giant Transporter Pad?

...Then again, apparently point-to-point was difficult if not impossible in TOS. Why was that? It almost seems as if the pad actually played a crucial role in the entire process, and no transporting could take place without it. (See the site-to-site transport in "The Cloud Minders", where the pad on the Enterprise appears to be an absolutely necessary stop en route!)

Re: One Giant Transporter Pad?

Well perhaps the console should have been a similiar size to the one in TOS or TNG. Not smaller.

I also tend to agree that the transporter cycle should have been longer, maybe only by a 3-5 seconds though. As for the colour perhaps they should have used something closer the gold pattern shown in TOS. To show an evolution of the technology.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
