TC Electronic releases v. 1.30 software for DB6, adding new GPI and ICON remote functionality as well as improved User Preset handling.

(Risskov, 12 February 2014) TC Electronic is proud to announce a new, free software update for its intelligent loudness management solution: DB6. With the new software, broadcasters are able to recall up to 16 Scene Presets by using GPI 1 and 2 together. DB6 offers a variety of ways to engage or disengage processing automatically, depending on format, level, physical inputs etc., while remote control can be achieved via Ethernet, GPI, SDI metadata, etc. 

The GPI implementation of DB6 is very extensive, offering switching between up to 16 Scene Presets using only two of its four GPI inputs. Based on this, DB6 may be controlled during playout, or a simple preset selection panel can be designed with easy access to presets and/or emergency override.

Further, it is now possible to control DB6 by multiple instances of the ICON remote, adding a new level of operational flexibility to the platform. Finally, it is also possible to copy entire User preset Banks to or from files stored on a PC or Mac.
