DK-Technologies to feature MSD100C Loudness meter
At IBC2008, DK-Technologies will spotlight its new MSD100C Loudness meter, which was developed in response to requests from broadcasters and production houses, including SKY, ITV, the BBC and RAI in Italy.
DK-Technologies’ new MSD100C Loudness is a stand-alone unit that incorporates ITU Recommendations BS.1770 and BS.1771, which specify the algorithms that should be used to measure audio program loudness. It is able to display the loudness of the individual audio channels as well as the sum of the left and right signals and can be used in any broadcast or post-production facility during production or prior to transmission.
The meter uses the loudness units scale that covers a range from -18db to 9dB. It also features an audio vector oscilloscope, phase correlation meter displays, a full VGA color display and VGA output for external display.
