The TM3, which includes features of the larger TM7 and TM9 TouchMonitor versions, is controlled using a touch-sensitive display. With its budget-friendly base price, a 4.3-inch touch screen and stylish exterior allowing for horizontal and vertical placement, the TM3 is a highly appealing, compact solution for editorial offices, edit suites and small control rooms.
The TM3 has received wonderful feedback thus far, with a large number of units already having been sold to some of the top broadcasters all over the globe, says Andreas Tweitmann, CEO, RTW. It was important to us to provide the broadcast community with a range of solutions, helping them meet each of their countrys respective loudness regulations.
