RTW, which makes visual audio meters and monitoring devices for broadcast, production, post production and quality control, will be in the Avid Pavilion at AES NY this year with the 19-inch 4U rack-mount (MA4U) version of its TouchMonitor TM9.
This reconfigured unit brings all the audio monitoring features of the standalone RTW TM9 in a new design that is more easily accessible to users in studio settings.
The TM9 panel-mount version is 235x135x45mm (9.25x 5.35×1.8 inches) without the power supply and is ideal for mounting into front panels. The unit comes standard with a USB extension for the front panel and the mounting kit is compatible with DIN 41494/IEC 60297 19-inch 4U racks (483x177x91mm).
“With the continued evolution of studio spaces and workflows, we have seen an increased interest in rack-mountable formats of our loudness solutions,” says Andreas Tweitmann, CEO, RTW.
Equipped with RTW’s high-grade nine-inch touch screens and an easy-to-use GUI, the TouchMonitor TM9 is the latest in the company’s rack-mount solutions, which include the TM3, TM7 and RTW legacy products. The TM9 has a graphical user interface that can be scaled, randomly positioned and combined in almost every way for optimized use of available screen space. Multiple instruments of the same type, assigned to different input channels and configurations, can be displayed simultaneously. Plus, a context-sensitive, on-screen help feature supports the user, allowing for easy setup changes.
The latest firmware version of the TM9, which is also used with the TM7, expands the basic software to a four-channel display with 4x mono or 2x stereo/2x mono. Additionally, 1x stereo can be measured without the need of an activated multichannel license. Output routing can be individually adjusted for each preset and all presets can be exported or imported at the same time.
