RTW Unveils New Feature for TouchMonitor Series at IBC

At the IBC 2017 Show RTW will showcase new firmware for its TouchMonitor TM7 and TM9 series of visual audio meters and monitoring devices.

The current RTW TM7/9 firmware update allows simultaneous monitoring of transmission streams with the ability to see up to four parallel instances of the stereo vectorscope at once. The RTA (Real Time Analyzer) feature set offers an even more refined graduated frequency distribution analysis with the addition of a 12th octave filter bank. Extra security measures can be activated by using a customer-selected password, which will also protect the user against unauthorized adjustment changes. This firmware also supports four-channel operation of a TouchMonitor, even without a multi-channel license, which allows attractive combinations in operation with RTW’s TMR7.

The new firmware is available for installation on RTW’s TM7, TM9 and TMR7 series instruments. TM7 and TM9 “TC Electronic” devices can also be updated. To access all new features and functions, these devices must be upgraded with the SW20021 TC Conversion Kit.

TM7/TM9 TouchMonitors feature a seven- and nine-inch highly flexible screen that provides the user with intuitive control. The TM7 TouchMonitor is an ideal choice when dealing with space issues because instruments can be scaled, randomly positioned and combined for optimal use of available screen space. The TM9 TouchMonitor brings a new level of professional audio metering in terms of precision, performance, efficiency and flexibility, making installation and use easy for any broadcaster.

RTW is also offering a new TC - RTW upgrade for customers who own TC Electronics’ TM7 or TM9 TouchMonitors. With the purchase of this upgrade, TC Electronics’ users will have access to new functionalities with the latest firmware. In addition, the company is offering a 50 percent discount on the purchase of a second software license for the same unit.
