RTW to Present TM3 TouchMonitor at interBEE 2011
Controlled using a touch-sensitive display, the TM3 includes features of the larger TM7 and TM9 versions. With its budget-friendly base price of less than $1,400 US for the basic stereo version and 4.3-inch touchscreen – allowing for horizontal and vertical placement, the TM3 is a highly appealing compact alternative. It is ideal for editorial offices, edit suites and small control rooms looking to stay ahead of the loudness control curve.
“We have received a lot of great response from the industry since we unveiled the TM3 at IBC in Amsterdam and its United Sates debut at the AES show in New York. We are thrilled to now unveil the new compact TouchMonitor to the Asian market at InterBee in Tokyo,” says Andreas Tweitmann, CEO, RTW. “The latest addition to RTW’s TouchMonitor family, the TM3 is modern and sleek. Its budget-friendly price offers an affordable loudness control solution for broadcast and pro-audio professionals.”
Featuring PPM and true-peak instruments, the TM3 offers comprehensive loudness metering in compliance with all globally relevant standards, including EBU R128, ITU BS.1770-2/1771, ATSC A/85 and ARIB. Instruments include single-channel and summing bar graphs, an LRA instrument and numerical displays. The basic version handles analog and digital stereo audio, while the 5.1 option adds the support of six-channel digital input.
The TM3 comes with a separate I/O unit that is connected with a single cable for audio transmission and power supply. RTW expects to begin shipment of the product in the second quarter of 2012.
