TC Electronic Updates Its Entire Loudness Meter Range to Comply With ITU-R BS.1770-2

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

A  global audio revolution is in the happening. For the past two years,  pro audio and broadcasting has been moving away from peak level  normalization and towards new, loudness-based solutions. In April 2011,  another important step was taken when ITU-R upgraded its BS.1770  standard to BS.1770-2.

The  first version of BS.1770 relied on ambiguous speech detection, which  can have unexpected consequences trying to control the level of  commercials or programs of certain genres. The improved 1770-2  recommendation incorporates a clever relative gate, making the  measurement well-defined and practical to use, also across genres.

It is now even relevant for controlling the level of promos and  commercials. Further, the new version is completely open standard,  because TC Electronic donated core technology to EBU, where it was  refined by PLOUD; and now brought back into the revised ITU standard.

TC Electronic’s Loudness Meter Range and BS.1770-2
Now, TC Electronic updates its radar loudness meters in System 6000 MKII  (v. 5.11), DB4 (v. 3.20), DB8 (v. 3.20), DB4 MKII (v. 3.20), DB8 MKII  (v. 3.20), LM2 (v.1.11), TC TouchMonitor TM7 & TM9 (v. 1.14) and for  ProTools HD (LM5D version 2) to comply with BS.1770-2.

Besides from BS.1770-2 measurement compatibility, these machines also  have dedicated EBU R128, TR-B32 and ATSC A/85 metering presets.  Additionally, smooth and BS.1770-2 compliant loudness correction is now  available in DB4, DB8, DB4 MKII and DB8 MKII, while DB2 will get the  capability this summer.

With BS.1770-2 compliance, loudness is always on the level!
