Coverage for BBC Proms at Royal Albert Hall London is being taken care of by SIS LIVE from two trucks, Mastersound and OB5. In Mastersound SIS LIVE’s Sound Supervisor Andy Payne is responsible for the sound balance of the HD Proms in 5.1. At his instigation, realtime experiments using EBU’s loudness recommendation R128 are also being trialled. Julian Gough of Noises Off is the co-Sound Supervisor for the project. Being independent he works with many different companies and with the interest in R128 at BBC Proms was looking for an audio meter that would be portable and provide him with accurate loudness measurements and PPMs. Having contacted Aspen Media, RTW’s UK distributor, Julian purchased a six-channel RTW TM3 to use with stereo or 5.1. TM3 complies with all the latest international loudness standards including EBU R128 and incorporates single-channel and summing bar graphs, loudness range and numerical displays for measuring loudness. Julian commented: “I’m very impressed with the configurability of the TM3. It’s so easy, using the Devicer software, to configure presets determined by the job I’m doing. I’ve never come across this before.” www.rtw.de
