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

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.

TC Group brings new collective identity to the fore

The TC Group of companies, which includes leading sound and audio brands Tannoy, TC Electronic, Lab.gruppen and TC-Helicon, has announced a bold rebranding initiative, unveiled for the first time at Frankfurt as part of a unique combined group presence at the Musikmesse/Prolight+sound show.

TC Group

The move formally brings the collective vision and values of the group’s brand companies together under a new and visible, TC Group brand identity – increasing market awareness of both TC Group as a whole and of its individual brands. While the companies have been linked by the same parent organisation for over a decade, and more recently shared sales co-ordination with the formation of sales organisations such as TC Group Americas (TCGA) and TC Group International (TCGI) in recent years, as well as increasingly collaborating on product development; individual brand identities have remained separate with no visible connection between them.

This group brand initiative is designed to align the brands, forming a more coherent relationship between them in the eyes of the end user and highlighting the high degree of shared resource and expertise across the respective brands. In doing so, it will allow TC Group to leverage better synergies between the brands in developing pioneering new products and moving towards bringing systems solutions, to better serve its diverse customer base across the many market segments within which it’s active.

Anders Fauerskov, CEO of TC Group, said: “If you interact with any part of the TC Group world you’ll find people deeply passionate about sound. That shared passion makes collaboration completely natural, almost instinctive. Telling the TC Group story to our customers, as well as how the brands are connected, is important to us. We want our customers to know that we put every ounce of our collective energies into developing market-leading products, with innovation that comes only from working together. We have total faith in our brands and the people driving them forward for the benefit everyone, whether they are a musician, sound engineer, integrator or the person standing in a busy train station listening to announcements.”

In uniting the brands under a visible group identity, Tannoy, TC Electronic, TC-Helicon, Lab.gruppen, Lake, White Acoustics and TC Applied Technologies will be better positioned to maximise their potential across respective market segments. With closer collaboration – not only within the group, but also with our key business partners and customers – comes greater opportunity for development and growth. While the global sales & support organisations of TC Group will also come under the new core TC Group banner, the business structure and customer contact points will not change in any way.

In recent years, measuring audio loudness reliably has become mandatory for content creators. TC Electronic collaborates with Adobe to provide new LoudnessRadar.

The LoudnessRadar builds on TC Electronic’s groundbreaking LM6 Radar Loudness Meter and offers a wide range of loudness measuring tools that are key to content creators delivering for broadcast, film and internet. In short, the LoudnessRadar provides an easy-to-read overview of loudness over time. It displays Loudness History on the revolving radar, Momentary Loudness on the outer ring, True-Peak clips, Program Loudness and Loudness Range in a single view.

“Loudness compliance is a key requirement for content creators today and moving forward,” said Simon Williams, director of strategic relations at Adobe. “Our Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Audition users will be able to have access to an innovative and easy-to-use loudness monitoring solution.”

“By adding the LoudnessRadar to the Adobe Premiere Pro toolset, Adobe has made it easy for video editors to get audio standards compliance right. The audio Target is always in sight, and it’s easy for all to balance speech consistently against background sound and foreground music,” says Thomas Lund, HD Development Manager at TC Electronic. “We think audio professionals will be thrilled to have the convenience of an integrated loudness monitoring solution in Adobe Audition.”

TC Electronic Loudness

TC Electronic has announced the launch of a new website that aims to be a comprehensive resource for everything related to loudness.

There are many aspects to loudness, and keeping track of all of them can be a challenge even to those already familiar with the topic. Therefore, TC has launched a new loudness website, as an extension of the overall TC Electronic website, where all of these aspects are outlined, explained and discussed. The site is an answer to the highly relevant question: “What Is Loudness, and Why Is It Important?”

Loudness website highlights

  • Introduction to Loudness – 101 Loudness explaining the basics in an easy-to-read, easy-to-understand fashion.
  • Broadcast Standards –What are the differences between the current standards? What are the significant details that are important to be aware of as a broadcaster or a deliverer of broadcast content?
  • Applications –It is one thing to know the technology and the standards involved, it is another to know how, where and when to apply the technology in real-world situations.
  • Events – As a loudness pioneer, TC has hosted several loudness seminars and have been present at broadcast and pro audio shows all over the world. An ‘Events’ page sums up these activities and is also a valuable source for in-depth videos.
  • Literature and Glossary – For those who would like to go deeper into the technical details, TC provides a massive collection of white papers describing and discussing all kinds of aspects of loudness technology, and finally there is also an extensive glossary explaining terms related to loudness.
