RTW Announce New Hardware Device

News Image
RTW is to demonstrate its range of monitoring and metering software and hardware devices, as well as new product updates at IBC 2016, Stand 8.D89. The company's new audio processor hardware, APRO-CLC01 for Continuous Loudness Control (CLC), will also be shown for the first time.

The combination APRO-CLC01 provides the first OEM hardware for the CLC algorithm that RTW developed in cooperation with the German Institut für Rundfunktechnik (IRT). The CLC signal processing algorithm allows users to constantly control and regulate to a given program-loudness value and definable loudness range with minimal obstacles for unknown, live content.

A new software version 4.0 is also available for RTW's Loudness Tools and Mastering Tools software. The new version adds support for Mac OS X 10.11 'El Capitan' and includes features like a selectable 12th octave RTA, cinema loudness (TASA and SAWA), and free scalable instrument size. With this version, the Loudness Tools and Mastering Tools software can also be operated as a stand-alone version.

RTW will also exhibit the new software version 1.5 for TM3-Primus and USB Connect. Version 1.5 adds support for Mac OS X 10.11 'El Capitan' and adheres to 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 maximum short-term loudness measurement is a parameter to characterize and control the loudness of commercials, promos, etc. RTW offers both functions as a freely selectable feature. Users may also turn both measurements on or off, depending on what their work entails.

Additional control features for USB Connect are available now, i.e. Time and Ref +/-), as well as an automatic channel allocation when signals are fed to the TM3-Primus via USB from DAWs.

Also at IBC 2016, RTW will display its TouchMonitor instruments and SurroundControl series. The TouchMonitor audio meters were created to help comply with all major industry loudness standards. The SurroundControl 31900 and 31960 series products are designed for controlling, analysing and monitoring stereo, surround sound and multi-channel programs. The SurroundControl 31900 offers a full range of audio and signal analysing tools, while the 31960 incorporates these tools specifically for television and video studio applications.
