DB4 MKII and DB8 MKII conform to new EBU, ATSC and ITU Loudness
and True-peak level standards across all platforms and all
formats. The broadcast world's highest resolution, lowest latency
and lowest distortion comes complimentary with DB4 MKII and DB8
MKII.

More Metering
The MKII versions feature the new EBU R128 and ATSC A/85
compliant LM6 Loudness Meter, new SNMP functions and one week of
detailed logging, even without connection to a computer. In DB4
MKII, the LM6 meter is always available in addition to its two
multichannel audio processors.

More Redundancy
With several thousand units operating constantly and globally,
there is plenty of proof that the original DB4 and DB8 processors
rarely fail. Now add the redundancy of the MKII versions: Same
power supply, but two of them. Also, double up on fuses, double
up on mains inlets and double up on the Swiss-made Papst fans.

More Compatibility
TC Electronic's DB2, DB4 and DB8 processors are famous for their
preset compatibility, allowing installations of any size to use
the same settings. DB4 MKII and DB8 MKII are just as
user-friendly and run presets from original DB4 and DB8 units
straight out of the box.

More Trickle-Down
DB4 and DB8 processors have a record of introducing novel
solutions that facilitate multi-platform broadcast ('Trickle-Down
processing') from one, low latency frame. The MKII's continue on
the same path with generous new functions that work regardless if
metadata has been correctly set upstream or not.

Mastering Quality
Synchronous 48 kHz sampling and 48 bit processing throughout, in
combination with massive jitter rejection, ensures high audio
resolution and perfect timing, even when long transmission lines
are used to feed a processor. Hundreds of DB processors can be
cascaded without degrading the sound as much as a single pass
through HDTV data reduction.

DB4 MKII and DB8 MKII are available now and will be on display at
the NAB Show 2011 in Las Vegas (April 11 – 14) at booth SU10217.
