RTW and Calrec Announce Collaboration at the 2012 NAB Show

RTW TM7 TouchMonitor To Be Integrated Into Calrec’s Range of Digital Audio Consoles

LAS VEGAS, APRIL 19, 2012 — RTW (C1844), a leading manufacturer and distributor of professional audio metering and control devices for studio recording and radio and TV broadcast applications, and Calrec Audio, LTD (C1746), manufacturer of high-quality audio products, are jointly announcing at the 2012 NAB Show that the RTW TM7 TouchMonitor will be fully integrated into Calrec’s line of digital audio consoles.

As a result of this partnership, RTW will provide the OEM version of the TM7 TouchMonitor touch screen loudness meter to be built into Calrec’s full range of digital consoles, including the Apollo, Artemis Shine, Artemis Beam and Artemis Light consoles. The TM7 will be integrated into the upstand of the consoles, providing various metering options. For example, on the Artemis consoles, both single and double meters layouts are available. The benefit of the double meter option (one above the other) is to show moving coil emulation along with a separate vector scope

“We are delighted to have reached this agreement with RTW,” says Henry Goodman, head of sales, Calrec Audio. “We have enjoyed a good relationship with RTW for many years, and this agreement enables us to continue to provide our customers with the right tools to meet the highest standards of broadcasting, as well as the ability to comply with new broadcast regulations.
 
“Given the lack of availability of traditional moving coil meters, and the demand which still exists, the TM7 also allows us to continue to provide our customers with the facilities they expect in professional broadcast facilities. We look forward to many more years of enterprise between our two companies.”

The TM7 will include the standard Multichannel, Loudness, SSA Surround Sound Analyzer and PPM software modules and custom meter presets offering loudness metering that meets the EBU R 128 and ITU BS1770 standards as well as traditional bargraph- and moving-needle metering to comply with additional international standards. The TM7 will also be available for retrofitting.

“RTW is very proud to partner with such a reputable manufacturer as Calrec Audio,” says Mahmoud Chatah, director of marketing and sales, RTW. “RTW and Calrec have enjoyed a long history together and this new agreement provides both companies with the opportunity to supply our customers in the broadcast industry with the modern technology necessary to fully comply with current loudness regulations now and in the future.”

The TouchMonitor is RTW’s response to growing demands in modern production, post-production and broadcast environments. With its high-quality 7- or 9-inch touchscreen and intuitive user interface, the TouchMonitor breaks new ground in professional audio analysis for accuracy, performance, efficiency and flexibility.

RTW’s entire TouchMonitor family of loudness metering products will be on display during the 2012 NAB show at the company’s booth (C1844). Executives from RTW will also be on-hand to discuss this new partnership with Calrec.
