RTW Shows Smart Versions of TM3 and TM3-3G TouchMonitors at NAB2018
“RTW created these very flexible and fully functional Smart versions of the TouchMonitors for our customers so that they don’t have to worry about the additional cost of licenses. Instead, these products can be used right out of the box,” says Andreas Tweitmann, CEO, RTW. “We look forward to promoting these smart versions at this year’s NAB as we expect to see the exact audience the products were designed for.”
The TouchMonitor TM3 Smart, handling a maximum of six channels, is the ideal solution for editorial offices, edit suites, small control rooms and any application that requires clear loudness-compliant level control. The unit’s flexible user interface allows for the selection of presets quickly and simply with just the swipe of a finger.
The TouchMonitor TM3-3G Smart is a compact and versatile solution for metering, deembedding and monitoring of 3G-SDI audio signals using a display unit for vertical or horizontal use. With its integrated 3G-SDI deembedder interface, the TM3-3G displays level and loudness of any eight 3G-SDI audio channels. Independently from this, up to 16 SDI audio signals can be sent to eight AES3 outputs. Therefore, customers do not need an external deembedder.
Both models allow users working with stereo, 5.1 or multichannel signals to easily create several configuration sets with different presets with the Devicer DC1 Software. The preloaded presets provide ease-of-use for first time users. The models feature a space-saving size with a 4.3" touchscreen and interface box. Both products can also be mounted in a 19" rack. This allows the metering equipment to be set up as a table-top unit next to a mixer in the studio, mounted in a rack in the studio, or in the master control room, meeting the needs of various users.
In addition to PPM and True Peak instruments, the TM3 and TM3-3G Smart models feature comprehensive loudness measuring features conforming to all relevant international standards (EBU R128, ITU-R BS.1770-3/1771-1, ATSC A/85, ARIB, OP-59, AGCOM, CALM Act). Loudness instruments include single-channel and summing bar graphs, loudness range, loudness chart (TP, M, S, or I value over time) and numerical displays.
