The world’s only USB audio monitor, the TM3-Primus features RCA-type two-channel analog and digital (SPDIF) loudness and level meters that meet worldwide standards. With its USB hybrid mode, operators can visualize and process DAW metering points directly on the screen. RTW’s TM3 Smart TouchMonitor, meanwhile, handles analog or digital stereo signals and digital six-channel signals. RTW is also showcasing the TM3-3G for metering, de-embedding and monitoring of 3G-SDI audio signals. Its interface can display level and loudness of any eight 3G-SDI channels, while an optional license allows users to send up to 16 SDI audio signals to eight AES3 outputs. It is also available as a cost-effective, out-of-the-box TM3-3G Smart TouchMonitor alternative.
RTW will additionally display its seven-inch TM7 and nine-inch TM9 TouchMonitors, which include the innovative Magic LRA instrument and provide unparalleled flexibility, modularity and intuitive control. The software visualizes multiple sources simultaneously. Both support displaying the same signal on multiple instruments in parallel, each with dedicated defaults with both horizontal and vertical operation. The system visualizes up to 16 analog and/or digital sources at the same time. Both adhere to all major industry loudness standards, including EBU R128, ITU BS.1770-3/1771-1, ATSC A/85, ARIB, OP-59, AGCOM, CALM Act and custom and SPL modes.
