You can get two basic TouchMonitor variants: TM7 and TM9 featuring a 7" and a 9" touch screen respectively. TM7 comes with 8 analog and 8 digital I/O, and you can choose between digital I/O on BNC (unbalanced AESid) or SUB-D (balanced) connectors.
TM9 has a more comprehensive set of I/O options, including 16
analog balanced, 8 analog/8 digital (bal/unbal.) and 16 digital
channels. A 3G SDI option will soon be available for TM9.
Further, you can expand or upgrade TouchMonitor by installing optional software instruments (meter types) such as the Radar Display or upgrade to Multichannel Mode.

Flexible Screen Layout
Tailor the screen layout to optimize it for any application, making your life easier and letting you achieve ultimate end results.
For instance, let the Radar Loudness Meter fill out one side of your screen, while using the remaining space for e.g. a Phase or PPM meter.
You could even have two Radar Loudness Meters running simultanously to monitor audio loudness at different stages.
There are many aspects to loudness, and keeping track of all of them can be a challenge. Therefore, we have created a dedicated loudness website, where all of these aspects are outlined, explained and discussed.
The site is an answer to the highly relevant
"What Is Loudness, and Why Is It Important?"

Loudness Radar Meter Features
Since the pre-DAW era, metering has played an important role in my mixing. I am accustomed to mixing with a meter but was immediately impressed with the accuracy of the TC meter over anything else I've ever used. The flexibility in setting up the screen to perfectly complement my workflow, especially the ability to make the tools i refer to more often larger and those that aren't as important smaller. (...) The TC TouchMonitor is an amazing tool that allows the mixer to visually confirm precise details about their mix, confirming that it meets whatever delivery specs are required. (...) I can't imagine doing another surround mix without it.
TM7 and TM9 set the standard in audio-Metering. The wealth of information and values displayed as well as the accuracy and individuality of the meter layouts are really impressive. The modular software design of the device allows flexible adaptation to your own production environment. Furthermore, they can quickly be software updated to keep up with technological development and customer demands.
The TM9 is excellent. The response of the actual meter is fluid, smooth and accurate. Correctly set up, this unit is an incredibly powerful tool to assist broadcasters to ensure their content is up to spec.
In the Press
Our history in digital audio dates back to 1985 and as pioneers in loudness, we took part in research studies and the definition of international broadcast standards right from the start.
Over the years, we have even donated technology that is now part of these open, international standards.
That is why world-leading broadcast magazines often invite us to share our knowledge with their readers.
