TC Electronic: Pilot set for multiplatform loudness control13 September 2014
Loudness Pilot, a new loudness controller and true-peak limiter, is making its debut at IBC.
TC Electronic said the dual stereo track Loudness Pilot had been specifically designed for TV and radio stations, which often need to transmit two signals simultaneously in different languages.
Also, when transmitting simultaneously to TV and to a mobile platform, Loudness Pilot delivers a signal fully compliant with TV standards – optimising the signal to the mobile platform at the same time.
TC Electronic has equipped Loudness Pilot with multiple dual redundancy features.
For example, the unit automatically switches over to another audio-stream, should a secondary language not be available. Other fail-safe features include dual power, dual fuses and dual fans.
The unit is fully compliant with all major loudness and broadcast standards, including ITU BS.1770-3, ATSC A/85, EBU R128, ARIB TR-B32, OP-59 and more. It launches in five versions, SDI 1, 2 or 3 streams and AES balanced.
