DK-Technologies’ new DK Meter is now even easier to use thanks to the addition of new software (V.2011-12-06), which enhances the user experience and significantly improves the meter’s performance.
The company has also released a new user guide that reflects this change and advises all DK Meter distributors, dealers and customers to visit www.dk-technologies.com where they can download both the new guide and the latest version of the software.
The DK Meter has received a fantastic response from the industry following its launch at NAB 20122, where it won a Broadcast Engineering Pick Hit Award for the technical and financial improvements it can bring to a facility’s operation.
At just $1295.00 in the US and €995.00 in Europe, this highly portable Compact Audio Loudness Meter (CALM) is no bigger than a smart phone and comes in two versions – the stereo DK1 and the 5.1 surround sound DK2. Both versions are easy to use, easy to install and can be powered from a computer USB port, making them ideal for location recording. They accept digital audio inputs and are supplied with all known loudness measurement recommendations as well as the standard DK-Technologies meter scales. As they use the same software as DK’s existing products, there are no technical issues when switching between a DK Meter and one of the larger meters in the company’s range which provides facilities for loudness logging.
Richard Kelley, Sales and Marketing Director for DK, says: “The new DK Meter is exactly what the industry has been waiting for - an affordable audio metering solution that not only delivers conventional metering but also ITU, EBU R128 and ATSC-compliant loudness metering at the same time, on the same display and in a single box.”
