Loudness Monitoring Problem Solved - Suite!

Suite, a post-production house located in Newman Street in London's West End, has to meet new programme delivery requirements for Sky Television, which include the EBU R128 loudness standard.
Having previously tested the RTW TouchMonitor TM9 and its loudness monitoring capability, the facility purchased the device knowing it could meet that loudness requirement.
The RTW TM9, supplied by Aspen Media the UK and Ireland distributor, was provided with multichannel capability plus loudness and SPL measurement and will be operated by Sound Engineers Simon Wright and Matt Baird in Suite's 5.1 Pro Tools studio.
Chief Engineer Jim Merrett, who instigated the purchase, explained: "I first saw the TouchMonitor at IBC last year and we became seriously interested in it after having a hands-on session at the Aspen Media Technology Day last November.
"We borrowed the TM9 for a week and were particularly impressed by its flexibility. We could arrange the instruments as we wanted them on the screen and we liked the idea that we could upgrade with extra audio measurement tools as and when we needed them. But right now it's the loudness monitoring that's essential to us."
Suite, celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, majors in comedy programmes including: Not Going Out, Life of Riley, In With the Flynns and Mock the Week. It also handled the post-production for Big Fat Gypsy Weddings and Jamie Comes of Age.
Aspen Media has been supplying audio equipment to the broadcast industry for over fifteen years under the leadership of its Director Chris Collings.
