Cologne, Germany (February 26, 2008)–RTW has licensed its Surround Sound Analyzer for use in the new Tektronix AMM768 audio multi-channel monitor, a dedicated audio analyzer–with an integrated SDI picture display–for the broadcasting and video industry.
RTW’s surround sound display is contributing to the AMM768’s acceptance as a tool for calibration, verification and production, according to the company. The instrument is capable of monitoring analog, digital AES/EBU, Dolby Digital and Dolby E audio signals at each point in the production and distribution system.
The RTW Surround Sound Analyzer delivers a graphical representation and overview of surround audio signals. For example, it displays the balance between the front and surround channels and between the L, C, and R front channels. The analyzer also shows the location of phantom sound sources, displays the dominant sound event within the surround sound field, and shows the phase relationships.
“The license agreement with Tektronix takes RTW another step closer to achieving its strategic aim of establishing this multi-channel display technology as the leading global standard,” said Andreas Tweitmann, CEO and new proprietor of RTW.
The RTW Surround Sound Analyzer is also integrated into RTW’s own analysis tools, including SurroundControl 31900/31960 and SurroundMonitor 11900, for multi-channel and surround productions.
RTW’s Surround Sound Analyzer has been previously licensed for use in the Tektronix Waveform Monitor products, which are combined video and audio analyzers.
