TC Electronic announces UpCon audio upconverter

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Sep 13, 2013 - comment 0 comments

TC Electronic has announced UpCon, a combined and uncompromising upconversion and downmix processor in a single, high-density rack unit.

It continuously monitors the channel format of the incoming audio, and if the signal falls back from true 5.1 to stereo, UpCon seamlessly cross-fades into a convincing 5.1 surround upconversion without adding any interruptions or artifacts.

TC’s UnWrap HD algorithm is the go to upconverter for film and mastering professionals. The sheer sound quality achieved during upconversion is unrivalled and can be heard in countless cinema movies and music tracks. UpCon is based on UnWrap HD and shares its ultra low latency as well as its overkill processing resolution.

TC Electronic UpCon

Loudness Transparency

Contrary to many competing products, the upconverted audio is loudness transparent. Many format converters will output a significantly different signal in terms of perceived loudness compared to the source, but this is not the case with UpCon. Broadcasters often need to stay within certain boundaries according to regulation or recommendation and by letting UpCon handle the conversion from stereo to 5.1, it is possible to stay compliant regardless of the signal’s channel format.

Automatic Input Detection, GPI or Metadata

The hardware is based on the TC Electronic DB6 platform and UpCon offers the same extended control possibilities. Ease of use is key and it can detect the incoming signal channel format automatically. In case the engineer wants more manual control, UpCon also offers extensive GPI control, or it can be set up to react to incoming metadata.

UpCon also offers the same expandability as DB6 Multi. It comes with one 3G SDI stream standard, but it can be expanded with one or two optional UpCon 3G cards for a maximum of 3 simultaneous SDI streams – the ultimate cost-effective, high-density solution.

Redundancy and Reliability

It does not matter how well a transmission unit does its job if it is not completely reliable. Being the last line of defense in a live scenario calls for ultimate redundancy and reliability. Therefore, UpCon comes with dual low-noise fans, dual fuses and dual power inlets for feeding the unit from two independent power sources. This way, broadcasters are virtually risk-free of losing signal while on air.

UpCon is by definition inserted at a very critical point of the audio signal path, and it is an ‘always on’ type of unit that needs to deliver non-stop performance year after year. Should the unlikely event happen that DB6 loses power, transmission will go on thanks to the Relay Bypass feature that passes the stream directly from input to output no matter what happens. Further, if one of the power sources should fail, notification can be given using GPIO or SNMP traps.

The UpCon will be available in Q4 2013.

TC Electronic updates LM2 & LM6 Native Plugins for ATSC A/85 Revision 2013 Compliance

TC Electronic LM6

TC Electronic has released version 1.4 of its versatile and highly acclaimed LM2 (stereo) and LM6 (multichannel) Loudness Radar Meter plugins.

With the new release, TC Electronic adds compliance with the recent 2013 revision of the ATSC A/85 broadcast standard that are mandatory for US broadcasters to adhere to.

“The new revision of the ATSC A/85 standard integrates the latest revision of the international ITU BS.1770-3 standard, which is of great importance in the efforts to make audio loudness more transparent even across national borders,” says Thomas Lund, CTO for Broadcast & Production at TC Electronic. “So it was a high priority for us to make our loudness meters compliant with this new development as we constantly work towards making audio experiences better no matter where you happen to be located.”

Apart from the ATSC A/85 2013 compliance, v. 1.4 also adds improved support for Pro Tools 11. “Measuring loudness becomes increasingly important, and every day more and more producers realize that they will benefit greatly from measuring the audio loudness of their projects,” says Thomas Valter, VP of Business Management at TC Electronic. “Therefore, it is important for us to always keep up with the latest DAW developments, making sure that we support first-movers, who port quickly to the latest incarnations of Pro Tools, Logic, Nuendo, Media Composer, etc.”

The free updates for LM2 and LM6 are now available to download.

TC Electronic intros BLITS 5.1 surround instrument for TouchMonitor

TC Electronic BLITS instrument for TouchMonitor

TC Electronic has introduced an optional 5.1 surround instrument for its TouchMonitor, incorporating a BLITS instrument for generating and analyzing BLITS test signals.

BLITS (Black & Lane’s Ident Tones for Surround) is a tool that allows for testing channel allocation, level and phase of 5.1 surround signals. Developed by Martin Black and Keith Lane from Sky TV in London in 2004, this sequence is widely used in international broadcasting.

This special instrument was created to not only generate a BLITS test signal, but to also use the BLITS sequence for a user-friendly and comprehensive analysis and display of level, channel allocation, phase, delay and polarity of incoming digital audio signals in 5.1 mode. Adjustable limits complement the analyzer. The sequence can be acquired from any digital input of the TouchMonitor.

Apart from the analyzer, the BLITS instrument features a signal generator part that is capable of generating not only the 5.1 sequence, but also a stereo ident sequence either in EBU 3304 format or as the widely known GLITS tone. An identification header like a station ident can be placed optionally in front of the test sequence. The signal will be output through the AES 3 or AES3id output feeds.

The BLITS license option for TouchMonitor requires users to install the current firmware version 3.12 first, which can be downloaded for free at: tcelectronic.com/touchmonitor/support

TC Electronic adds 3G capability to the TouchMonitor TM7

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Jun 04, 2013 - comment 0 comments

TC Electronic has announced the additional of 3G capability to its TouchMonitor TM7 loudness meter.

TC Electronic TouchMonitor TM7

TouchMonitor TM7 is a very popular loudness meter for mobile trucks and small installations where space is always an issue. Broadcasters have wished for the same 3G SDI capability of the larger TouchMonitor TM9, and now a TM7 model with that exact I/O configuration is available.

TM7 accepts all SD, HD and 3G formats available on the market. Apart from the 3G SDI interface (including SDI loop through), it also features 4 digital AES3 inputs (8 channels) and 4 digital AES3 outputs (8 channels) via a D-sub connector. The internal routing matrix offers great flexibility and even includes routing SDI to AES, optionally using the meter as an SDI to AES converter while measuring the signal simultaneously.

Like the other versions of TouchMonitor, TM7 with 3G SDI features intuitive touch screen control, USB connections, GPIO, Ethernet, VGA output and highly flexible, user-definable screen layouts. It is also compliant with all major broadcast standards and a plethora of software options are available, including TC Electronic’s highly acclaimed Loudness Radar Meter that provides a complete overview of any loudness landscape at a glance, including Loudness History, Momentary Loudness and numeric values for e.g. Program Loudness and Loudness Range.
