Test Time Control For Loudness Measurements

New options for automatic control of loudness measurements with TouchMonitor units

Cologne, June 12, 2013 – RTW, a leading vendor of visual audio meters and monitoring devices for professional broadcast, production, post production and quality control, has expanded the options for controlling loudness measurements with its TouchMonitor units.

With the issue of firmware update 2.50 for TM3 series, the Loudness menu provides a Test Time Control option. This sub menu is used to set the parameters for starting and stopping loudness measurements. In addition to a manual control by the use of on-screen keys and/or the GPI interface, full or semi-automatic measurements can also be defined. Therefore, the user can choose between an autostart after loading a preset or autostart when reaching the value of an adjusted gate, with or without an automatic reset of previous values. Loudness measurements can not only be terminated manually with on-screen keys and/or GPI commands, but also automatically by defining a threshold value and time span.
The combination of those parameters allow users to set an automatic, semi-automatic or manual loudness measurement process as required for different applications.

The Test Time Control option will also be available for TouchMonitor TM7, TMR7 and TM9 with the next firmware update for these units.
