BroadcastAsia focuses on loudness

The updated ITU loudness standard will be outlined at next week's BroadcastAsia 2011 show, alongside new monitoring, processing and transmission product launches, writes Kevin Hilton.

The updated ITU loudness standard will be outlined at next week’s BroadcastAsia 2011 show, alongside new monitoring, processing and transmission product launches, writes Kevin Hilton. The show takes place at Suntec Singapore from 21st to 24th June. The second generation version of the ITU’s original loudness specification, BS 1770-2, will be outlined during BroadcastAsia’s conference programme by Thomas Lund, development manager of TC Electronic. BS 1770 laid down the foundations for current loudness control procedures, which were enhanced last year by the EBU with its R128 recommendations. TSL Systems has been using both 1770 and R128 in its monitoring products and will introduce several new models during the Singapore show. PAM2-3G16 is a new member of the Precision Audio Monitor range, with an Aux Input Mixer and Split Mono Scroll Mode, which shows downmix and LtRt among other functions. Also debuting is the PAM1-3G16, giving loudness measurement and preset Standard Switching. New from Sonifex is the RB-DDA22 Redbox distribution amplifier and RB-VHEDD8 3G/HD/SD-SDI Dolby E encoder and embedder (pictured). The RB-DDA22 can connect to digital mixing consoles and digital recorders and send feeds to multiple studios from an USB audio player output. The RB-VHEDD8 is the latest in a growing range of embedders and de-embedders from the company. Radio gets a look in through transmission companies Jampro Antennas and Seratel Technology. Jampro is introducing a new mask filter, along with a FM bandpass combiner. The company recently secured a contract to supply over 12 RCCC constant impedance FM bandpass combiners and patching systems to All India Radio. Spanish transmitter manufacturer Seratel will be launching the 2kW and 5kW FM Compact Series transmitters, which feature LDMOS (laterally diffused metal oxide semiconductor) transistor technology and integral exciters. www.broadcast-asia.com/the-event
