DK-Technologies Brings Affordable Audio Loudness Metering to BVE 2012
Since launching the DK Meter at NAB 2011, DK has received a fantastic response from the industry with an unprecedented level of advance orders that are now being fulfilled.
Richard Kelley, Sales and Marketing Director for DK, says: “We have never seen anything like this before. The new DK meter has received more enquiries per week than any other product we have sold in the past, proving that there is huge demand from the industry for an affordable audio metering solution that not only delivers conventional metering but also ITU, EBU R128 and ATSC-compliant loudness metering at the same time, on the same display and in a single box.”
No bigger than a smart phone, the DK Meter has no interface box to hide behind the equipment or in the console and comes in two versions – the stereo DK1 and the 5.1 surround sound DK2. Both versions are easy to use, easy to install and can be powered from a computer USB port, making them ideal for location recording. They accept digital audio inputs and are supplied with all known loudness measurement recommendations, as well as the standard DK-Technologies meter scales. As they use the same software as DK’s existing products, there are no technical issues when switching between a DK Meter and one of the larger meters in the company’s range which provides facilities for loudness logging.
“Thanks to its price and portability, the new DK Meter allows broadcasters and programming makers to check and correct audio levels much earlier in the production process, thus avoiding expensive fixes at post in order to keep audio levels within the law,” Kelley adds.
