The broadcast world is fast and ever-evolving, which makes it very important for broadcasters and post and production audio professionals, delivering content for broadcast, to always be on par with the latest development. However, in order to do so, manufacturers must first provide products that comply with the latest development. Since TC has taken part in several aspects of establishing broadcast standards in the first place, it is little wonder that they are among the first to release updates that reflect changes to the major international broadcast standards such as BS.1770.

Consequently, TC now releases BS.1770-3-compliant updates for its  DB2 Loudness Correction Processor DB4, DB8 DB4 MKII and DB8 MKII TV Transmission Processors LM2 Stereo Loudness Meter ,  LM2  and  LM6 Native Loudness Meter Plug-ins and the pro audio signal-processing flagshipSystem 6000 MKII.

ITU-R BS.1770-3 is a global, open standard defining how to measure Program Loudness and True-peak level. Having donated key technology to both areas, TC Electronic is committed to keeping its meters and processors updated as this audio revolution unfolds before our ears.

TC Electronic recommends all users of DB2, DB4, DB8, DB4 MKII, DB8 MKII, LM2, LM2 & LM6 Pluginsand System 6000 MKII to update their products to keep compliant and stay ahead of the curve.
