Merging Technologies presents Final Check at IBC

Swiss DAW developer Merging Technologies presented its answer to fulfillment of technical program requirements at IBC2010: Final Check, an optional add-on for its Pyramix Virtual Studio workstation. With the proliferation of increasingly complex and stringent delivery requirements, Final Check offers the solution in the form of a complete suite of metering tools as a plug-in for Pyramix Virtual Studio.

In a single window, Final Check includes all the essential measurement and display options for both stereo and 5.1 mixes. Bar-graph VU and PPM (with DIN, Nordic, BBC and EBU presets) are complemented by true peak meters, which can identify areas likely to cause problems after D-to-A conversion due to excursions beyond 0dBFS. Standard phase meters for stereo and surround assist in identifying inappropriate correlations.

Stereo spatialization is displayed as a classic goniometer (oscilloscope) with two new display modes: phase stereo meter, which shows a 360-degree plot of the points displayed by the phase oscilloscope; and VU stereo meter, a circular graph showing directional RMS rays.

Surround is equally well catered for with the surround monitor, a 360-degree display of the surround mix with the added feature of a simple color code, enabling the user to detect interchannel phase issues rapidly by highlighting them in red.

Accurate loudness measurement is now a routine delivery requirement. As recommended by ITU-R 1770-1, the Final Check loudness meter displays a bar graph as well as the numerical value LUFS (loudness unit full scale). It is also fully compatible with the ATSC A/85 standard. In addition, a preset is provided for Dolby dialnorm compliance.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
