Our friends at HHB/Scrub announced several new products at BVE in London. The first is Nugen Audio’s MultiMonitor, which is a software application that provides up to 16 individual loudness and true-peak meters to monitor mono, stereo, and 5.1 formats for up to 96 individual audio channels. This standalone software is available for both PC and Mac and provides flexible, real-time monitoring in full compliance with global loudness regulations and standards. This rings the software meter into the live environment and also provide a compact solution in transmission control areas. Jon Schorah, Founder and Creative Director at Nugen Audio told us…
Broadcasters throughout Europe are grappling with loudness compliance, which includes understanding where and how to integrate loudness tools in the broadcast chain.
In addition at HHB unveiled the debut of three new additions to TC Electronic’s broadcast sound product range.
Reverb 8 for System 6000 offers up to 16 reverb output channels and is capable of feeding any input signal, from mono to stereo, and 5.1 or 7.1. It can also deliver an infinite number of output channels, making it perfectly suited for Dolby Atmos (up to 62.2 surround), Barco Auro (11.1 surround) or NHK’s multichannel broadcast format Super Hi-Vision (22.2 surround). Multiple System 6000 MKII frames can be linked in a network, offering reverb for virtually any channel-count.
The addition of 16 channels of unbalanced AES I/O to the DB6 Loudness Management Processor means that broadcasters have the tools to pass an entire SDI signal through a loudness management system, or to route only the audio signal through an insert point in their system. This is in addition to DB6’s state-of-the-art upconversion, downmix and lip sync.
The LQL (Loudness Quality Logger) program, designed by RTW as a tool for logging, true-peak data analysis and reporting, is now also compatible with the TC Electronic TM7 and TM9 TouchMonitors and is now available as a free download for customers with a logging licence.
