HHB Communications Ltd. unveiled the world exclusive debut of three new additions to TC Electronics broadcast sound product range with audio post specialists Scrub at BVE 2014 on Stand H57.
A leader in broadcast audio technology, HHB introduced the new TC Electronic Reverb 8 algorithm for the highly-acclaimed System 6000 audio processing platform, an unbalanced AES I/O option for the DB6 Broadcast Audio Processor and a new Loudness Quality Logger (LQL) for TouchMonitors during the show.
Reverb 8 for System 6000 offers up to 16 reverb output channels of ultra-realistic reverbs and is capable of feeding any input signal, from mono to stereo, and 5.1 or 7.1. It delivers an infinite number of output channels, making it perfectly suited for Dolby Atmos (up to 62.2 surround), Barco Auro (11.1 surround) or NHKs multichannel broadcast format Super Hi-Vision (22.2 surround). Multiple System 6000 MKII frames can be linked in a network, offering reverb for virtually any channel-count.
The addition of 16 channels of unbalanced AES I/O to the DB6 Loudness Management Processor gives broadcasters the tools to pass an entire SDI signal through a loudness management system, or to route only the audio signal through an insert point in their system. This is in addition to DB6s state-of-the-art upconversion, downmix and lip sync. Thomas Valter, VP of Business Management for Broadcast & Production at TC Electronic states: Integrating DB6 to an existing transmission system at an insert point is a flexible option to have and it will surely suit some stations better than an SDI-only solution. Were happy to provide this option with DB6.
The LQL (Loudness Quality Logger) program, designed by RTW as a tool for logging, true-peak data analysis and reporting, is now also compatible with the TC Electronic TM7 and TM9 TouchMonitors. Offered as a free download for customers with a logging licence, LQL collects data directly from a TouchMonitor via an IP-connection or from external storage media such as a USB stick.
HHB Director of Sales Martin ODonnell comments: We are very excited to debut these new products alongside TCs already exceptional broadcast sound range. We are taking a strong focus on loudness at BVE and TC is a world leader in the field. DB6s new AES option and the LQL function for TouchMonitor adds even further value to what are already exceptional products.
