IBC2013: TC Electronic debuts UpCon, Broadcast 6000

Two new products – the UpCon up-convert for 5.1 HDTV and the Broadcast 6000 – were introduced on the HHB stand at IBC in Amsterdam, where it was also announced that the company will now serve as TC Electronic's exclusive distributor in the UK and Ireland.

TC Electronic debuted its UpCon up-converter for 5.1 HDTV broadcast in Amsterdam at this year’s IBC show. The new unit combines an up-conversion and downmix processor in a single rack unit, based on TC’s UnWrap HD algorithm. The UpCon offers the same expandability as DB6 Multi and comes with one 3G SDI stream standard, but can be expanded with one or two optional transmission 3G cards for a maximum of 3 simultaneous SDI streams. Also premiering at IBC was TC’s new Broadcast 6000, a broadcast-specific version of the System 6000 MKII. The unit includes TC’s LM6 Loudness Radar Meter, the ALC6 Automatic Loudness Correction algorithm and the UnWrap HD algorithm. The unveiling of both new products took place at the HHB booth, where it was announced that the company will now serve as the exclusive distributor for TC Electronic’s broadcast audio and production products in the UK and Ireland. HHB sales director Martin O’Donnell commented: “This year’s IBC show is a big year for professional audio announcements led in part by TC Electronic’s UpCon and Broadcast 6000 broadcast audio products. The introduction of the DB6 loudness manager was only the tip of the iceberg as TC continues to release a range of high-quality audio broadcast tools that are setting a new standard throughout the industry. We are very happy to be taking on the new role of exclusive distributor and helping TC introduce these extremely useful audio products to our customers.”
