New York - Oct 17, 2011 - TC Electronic has introduced software update version 2.17 for its TouchMonitor TM7 and TM9 loudness meters. These updates help the TM7 and TM9 to comply with the new ITU-R BS.1770-2 and the CALM Act standards.
The ITU-R BS.1770 standard was recently updated to 1770-2, which adds a loudness gate to ensure usability across media genres. With the version 2.17 update, TouchMonitor users can comply with BS.1770-2 and the entire loudness toolbox of EBU R128 as well as being fully prepared for the CALM Act.
The version 2.17 software also enables GPI remote control of functions such as meter start, stop and reset, while at the same time opening the unit up for new output routing functions. The software upgrade is free of charge to all users and can be downloaded from the TC Electronic website.
