Studer Integrates RTW Loudness Metering in Vista Consoles

Studer has announced loudness metering for all its Vista broadcast-audio consoles. This is a result of collaboration with RTW, which is providing a special version of the TM7 touchscreen meter to be built into the meter bridge of Vista 9 and Vista 5 M2 consoles.

The TM7 meter was chosen because it complements Vistonics, the touchscreen user interface used on Vista consoles. It will include custom presets that provide not only loudness metering to EBU R128 and ITU BS1770 standards but also traditional bar-graph and ballistic metering to many international standards. This loudness meter may be retrofitted to all Vista 9 consoles.

Says Studer GM Bruno Hochstrasser, “This is a new chapter in our excellent relationship with RTW, who has provided traditional meters to Studer for many years. The integration with our Vista range will provide our customers with integrated and easy capability to comply with new regulations and to improve their services.”
