RTW Provides Accurate Loudness Measurement For Conference

News Image
RTW has been employed to provide accurate loudness measurement at the 34th Annual Chaos Communication Congress.

RTW is a vendor leading vendor of visual audio meters and monitoring devices for professional broadcast, production, post production and quality control. The RTW products, including the TouchMonitor TM3, MM3 Music Meter and TouchMonitor TM9, were used with mixers to ensure consistency for streaming and recording the four day conference.

The annual conference is organised by the Chaos Computer Club and offers attendees lectures and workshops on technical and political issues such as computer security, social and technical developments and trends, and more.

This was the first conference that was professionally monitored by CCC and volunteers, after the Technical University Ilmenau team worked with the Video Operation Center (VOC) to implement the streaming previously.

"Utilizing volunteers presented the staff with an unfamiliar audio monitoring situation, which is why we chose RTW products," Jannes Jeising, technical coordinator, Video Operation Center, said. "We needed appropriate and effective tools to achieve the best results. Therefore, a TM3 or MM3 Music Meter was set up on every mixing console. The units were easily installed and could be used immediately."

"The compact units from RTW offered a good overview of current measurement values without blocking too much space," Ms Jeising said. "The display of the short-term loudness with a definite labeling of the target figure could be read intuitively. This was especially helpful because this year the target level changed from the usual -23LUFS to -16LUFS, to be more appropriate for streaming."

A TM9 monitor was also installed in one of the mixing consoles. This made it possible for staff to control mixes of all four lecture halls at a glance and to be arranged according to each mixer’s individual needs.
