RISSKOV, DENMARK�Loudness authority TC Electronic introduces Loudness Pilot, a multiple stereo and mono loudness controller and true-peak limiter.

Loudness Pilot has a fit-for-purpose design featuring two stereo audio tracks. Loudness Pilot enables broadcasters to transmit two signals simultaneously in different languages on a single unit. The unit automatically switches over to another audio-stream, should a secondary language not be available. It launches with five different versions: SDI 1, 2 or 3 streams and AES balanced or unbalanced.

�If you have to stream to a mobile platform your signal will probably need to be a bit louder,� said Thomas Valter, TC Electronic vice president of business management, broadcast and production. �In the absence of set standards for this area, we recommend that broadcasters aim at -16 LUFS/LKFS for this signal. You can set Loudness Pilot perfectly for each of your transmissions.�

Loudness Pilot is purpose built and its focused design in both the SDI and AES versions also includes the option to add the renowned TC Loudness Radar Meter and 24/7 logging as a separate license.

It features dual redundancy so that the signal will never be in jeopardy. There are dual fuses, dual fans and dual power inputs and a Relay Bypass feature (on both SDI and AES versions).
