AMSTERDAM — RTW (www.rtw.de), a vendor of visual audio meters, introduced a new version of its TouchMonitor TM3 at IBC 2012. The TouchMonitor TM3-3G allows the TM3’s current hardware and software design to visualize, convert and replay 3G SDI signals. The compact unit is designed for metering, de-embedding and monitoring 3G SDI audio.
The TM3-3G features a 4.3-inch touchscreen for horizontal as well as vertical orientation, which can display any of the eight audio channels contained in a 3G SDI stream. For that purpose, it includes a large number of graphical and numerical instruments showing single-channel and summing loudness bargraphs, PPM, true peak, SPL, loudness range (LRA), dialnorm and correlation. The TM3 offers comprehensive loudness metering in compliance with all globally relevant standards. It also features the Magic LRA mode, specifically designed by RTW, for intuitive visualization of the loudness range and integrated-loudness parameters.
