TSL to address and prove loudness compliance at BVE17 January 2014
TSL Products is taking on loudness compliance at BVE by showcasing its PAM1 MK2 Precision Audio Monitor and the PAM PiCo range of audio and loudness meters. The manufacturer of surround sound microphones and processing, audio monitoring, tally/studio control systems and power management solutions, will also feature its SAM1 MADI Studio Audio Monitor.
“Many broadcasters are still figuring out the best practises with regards to measuring, monitoring and recording loudness levels in order to keep within newly instated loudness regulations,” said Tim Weston, regional sales manager for the UK and Ireland at TSL Products. “At BVE, we’ll be highlighting the latest developments in our PAM series, which address the challenges of loudness compliance—not only for EBU128, but for EBU, ITU, ATSC and ARIB standards. What gives our customers added value is the free and frequent software updates that ensure our customers always have the right tools to comply with the latest international loudness legislations.”
The PAM1 MK2 Precision Audio Monitor is suitable for a range of operational users in television production, ranging from technical to creative engineering throughout the broadcast chain. Its built-in loudness histogram provides a visual representation of loudness against time, so users can be confident that outgoing signals are compliant.
The company will also demonstrate new features for its PAM PiCo range of audio and Loudness meters. A 3G video preview, improved GUI and SMPTE linear timecode recognition will all be on show. Each model can measure loudness to all known international standards and recommendations and the PAM PiCo Loudness Logging Application is supplied as a free download to all PAM PiCo users.
The new SAM1 MADI Studio Audio Monitor will also make its debut at BVE. Delivering visual and audio feedback for monitoring within a MADI audio infrastructure, the SAM1 MADI provides users with access to any combination of formats, including MADI, embedded HD-SDI, AES and analogue sources in a mixed multichannel environment.
