RTW, a vendor of visual audiometers and monitoring devices for professional broadcast production, debuts its TM7-HW20714 TouchMonitor, which accepts all SD, HD and 3G formats currently available and features a 3G-SDI interface.
By accepting all SD, HD and 3G formats, the TM7-HW20714 can seamlessly integrate into television studios, switching rooms and video post-production facilities, RTW says.
The TM7-HW20714 interface was developed in response to requests by audio engineers in the broadcast market for a seven-inch audio metering tool that is compatible with 3G interfacing, RTW says. The unit complements the existing custom input configuration of TouchMonitor units, which makes analog, AES3 and AES3-id formats available in various combinations, depending on the hardware version the customer chooses, the company says.
The through-port of the 3G-SDI interface forwards the SDI input signal. De-embedded SDI signals may be routed to any existing AES output, RTW says. The new model includes four AES3 (eight-channel) inputs and four AES3 (eight-channel) outputs that can be used as direct AES outputs either to buffer or reroute the AES signals or to send out a decoded 3G audio signal, the firm says. In addition, the TouchMonitor TM7 can display up to 32 channels of audio from any combination of inputs, according to RTW.
