DK-Technologies is using the IBC platform to introduce a new Graphical Loudness display for its award-winning PT0760M HS/SD waveform monitor.
This display allows engineers to simultaneously see waveform and audio information on the same screen. It is particularly useful for facilities that need to comply with the new BCAP guidelines on audio loudness as it enables engineers to measure loudness against time and instantly see the effect of any changes they might make to loudness values.
The Graphical Loudness display allows user to view up to three minutes of rolling audio. The PT0760M is able to de-embed up to 16 audio channels from up to 4 HD/SD video inputs and also provide Dolby Digital/DolbyE decoding. The PT0760M can also be purchased with analogue and digital audio inputs and outputs. With these options the PT0760M can provide ITU indication via the standard ITU Loudness Unit (LU) scale. The variable elements of the ITU specification are available to the user, variable integration window and reference level, but DK-Technologies also provides the facility to change the reference frequency for set up between 1KHz and 400Hz, formats being used in many European countries.
A level reading obtained with the PT0760 can be viewed on the inbuilt screen or on and external screen via the assignable DVI output. The internal and external screens can display separate images allowing two simultaneous independent uses of the meter. The same result can be achieved using the PT0700R remote control which provides a 2nd set of controls which are independent to those on the meter.
