RTW Brings Loudness Solutions To Vegas

News Image
RTW will showcase its range of monitoring and metering software and hardware devices at NAB 2016.

One of the products on display will be the company's recently released Continuous Loudness Control Software (CLC) for audio processing, which has been developed in cooperation with the Institut für Rundfunktechnik (IRT).

The signal processing software enables users to control and regulate to a given program-loudness value, along with a definable loudness range with minimal obstacles. A key advantage of the adaptive morphing algorithm is its realtime capability, as the CLC algorithm 'learns' during processing about the dynamic structure and intention of the sound signal, and adopts its processing constantly to predict what comes next. The software is able to handle most common DAW software, audio and files and meets EBU-R128 and all major global loudness standard specifications.

"As loudness regulations continue to evolve, we are happy to update our products to meet the ever-changing needs of our rapidly growing customer base," said Andreas Tweitmann, CEO of RTW. "Our partnership with IRT allows us to extend our reach into a broader market and has enhanced our audio meters and monitoring devices. We are pleased to continue our partnership with IRT, allowing our customers to efficiently conform to the set loudness standards in today's audio industry."

RTW has also released version 4.0 for its Loudness Tools and Mastering Tools software. The new version adds support for Mac OS X 10.11 'El Capitan' and provides user requested features such as a selectable 12th octave RTA, cinema loudness (TASA and SAWA), and free scalable instrument size. The latest version also allows the Loudness Tools and Mastering Tools software to be operated as a stand-alone version.

The new software version 1.5 for TM3-Primus and USB Connect has also been released, and provides support for Mac OS X 10.11 'El Capitan', as well as the recently released standard changes in the EBU Loudness Recommendation (EBU R 128). Users can select to read the Smax and Mmax values. Momentary or a max. Short-term loudness measurement is a parameter to characterise and control the loudness of commercials and promos. RTW offers both functions as a freely selectable feature. Users may turn on or off one or both measurements. Responding to user request, the additional control features for USB Connect are now available as i.e. Time and Ref +/-), plus an automatic channel allocation when signals are fed to the TM3-Primus via USB from DAWs.

Other RTW products at NAB 2016 include the TouchMonitor instruments and the SurroundControl series. The TouchMonitor audio meters are used by professional audio engineers who work in broadcast, radio, production and post production industries. The meters were created to help adhere to all major industry loudness standards.

The SurroundControl 31900 and 31960 series products are designed to control, analyse and monitor stereo, surround sound and multi-channel programs. The SurroundControl 31900 offers a full range of audio and signal analyzing tools, while the 31960 incorporates these tools specifically for television and video studio applications.
