ITU has just updated their international broadcast
standard to BS.1770-3, and we follow by releasing free software
updates for a wide range of our loudness products to comply with
the new version.
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 we've have taken part in several aspects of establishing broadcast standards in the first place, it's not surprising that we are among the first to release updates that reflect changes to the major international broadcast standards such as BS.1770.
Consequently, we now release BS.1770-3-compliant updates
for DB2 Loudness
Correction Processor, The Original DB4 &
DB8, DB4 MKII and DB8 MKII TV Transmission
Stereo Loudness Meter, LM2 and LM6 Native Loudness
Meter Plug-ins and the pro audio signal-processing
flagship System 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, we are committed to keeping our meters and processors updated as this audio revolution unfolds before our ears.
We recommend all users of DB2, DB4 & DB8, DB4 & DB8 MKII, LM2, LM2 & LM6 Plugins and System 6000 MKII to update their products to keep compliant and stay ahead of the curve.
