Cologne, Germany (September 11, 2019)—RTW has developed an immersive audio license, ISA Immersive Sound Analyzer, for its TouchMonitor TM7 and TM9 audio meters that enables metering of several variants of the Dolby Atmos format.
With the ISA license, audio engineers in broadcast and post production will be able to monitor 5.1.2, 5.1.4, 7.1.2 or 7.1.4. In reality, two surround sound analyzers are combined, which allows for monitoring both the main bed (5.1 or 7.1), as well as the upper bed (2.0 or 4.0) in a single easy-to-read view. Besides offering all relevant metering instruments, users will also be able to monitor various loudness measures, including Integrated, Momentary and Short-Term loudness across an entire Dolby Atmos stream.
“Immersive audio formats have arrived to stay, and the transition has merely just begun,” says Andreas Tweitmann, CEO of RTW. “Therefore, we’re very excited to announce the new ISA license for our TM9 and TM7 units that allows existing users to simply add this crucial functionality. And of course, it represents yet another reason for new users to join the TM-platform, stepping into the future of immersive audio in broadcast.”
The ISA – Immersive Sound Analyzer license will be available immediately after IBC 2019 and is available for all TM7 and TM9 models running software version 8-10 or higher. The following additional software licenses are required to run ISA: Multichannel Mode, Loudness and SPL Display and Surround Sound Analyzer.
