RTW will implement the IRT's Continuous Loudness Controller into future products

RTW, the market leader in visual audio meters and monitoring devices, will implement the Institut für Rundfunktechnik (IRT)'s patented Continuous Loudness Controller into future broadcast-focussed audio equipment.

RTW says the partnership, announced today at the 28th Tonmeistertagung in Cologne, will "expand the [its] line of products, further supporting the changing industry needs of the state of loudness control".

Continuous Loudness Controller technology allows users to continuously readjust the level of audio material against a given programme loudness value and definable loudness range in real time, with "minimal artefacts". The technology is in accordance with EBU-R128 and other worldwide loudness standard specifications.

"We look forward to our collaboration with the IRT," says Andreas Tweitmann, managing director of RTW. "With both partner developments and designs, IRT and RTW have focussed on the highest quality of audio in radio and TV decades.

"The new technique developed by the IRT is groundbreaking and will have a tremendous benefit to our customers. We are very happy to implement the Continuous Loudness Controller in our products."
