HHB Communications Ltd. is hosting the exclusive world debut of the new aNorm loudness algorithm and the latest products from co-exhibitors TC Electronic at IBC 2014 in Hall 8 on Stand 8.D56.
TC Electronic’s aNorm normalisation algorithm provides innovative loudness adjustment features that offer a new approach for user-defined Targets for Program Loudness and Loudness Range (LRA). Complementing aNorm is the new Butterfly Processing Meter that offers both graphical and numerical displays of Program Loudness and Loudness Range parameters at all stages of the process. The aNorm algorithm and Butterfly Meter are part of the new LoudnessWizard II license for TC Electronic’s DB6 Broadcast Audio Processor.
“We are proud to offer second-generation loudness normalisation and new loudness processing metering to all audio-conscious broadcasters,” says TC Electronic’s Thomas Valter, VP of Business Management, Broadcast & Production. “aNorm adapts seamlessly to your content to achieve a transparent result where delicate production balances aren’t washed out. It is also easy to use, and it even leads to new transition processing never before possible.”
HHB is also displaying the latest TC Group products, including the new TC Electronic Loudness Pilot for loudness compliance with dual-stereo or dual-mono audio, the System 6000 Integration plug-in and the latest Dynaudio Air Control loudspeaker software.
Optimised for regional and local broadcast stations, Loudness Pilot provides hassle-free stereo loudness control in a fit-for purpose device that employs True-Peak metering and is fully compliant with all major loudness and broadcast standards. Both SDI and AES versions (balanced or unbalanced) are available.
The newly released System 6000 Integrator plug-in is a complete integration solution for the System 6000 processor that allows users to save and reload settings as part of almost any DAW/NLE project via Ethernet. Changes to presets can be automated during playback, making full use of all four of System 6000’s processing engines.
Free for all Dynaudio Air loudspeaker users, Air Control offers advanced configuration, calibration and installation software that delivers precision control of loudspeaker parameters. Setups and presets can be saved to a PC or MAC via a touch-compatible user interface.
