RTW Dante-enabled TouchMonitor TM7 and TM9 now available

The new versions of RTW’s audio meters with Dante-support across 32 audio channels and redundant network support are now shipping.

A TouchMonitor with Dante connectivity is able to monitor up to 32 audio channels at sample rates up to 96kHz. The selected sample rate does not affect the channel count, which means that users can keep their eyes on up to 32 channels across the IP Audio Network at any given time.

Apart from measuring critical audio-related factors such as Loudness, True-Peak, Correlation, Frequency Distribution, etc., users now also get instant and visible feedback on the overall status of the audio network, allowing for quick troubleshooting and identification of potential problems that may cause critical downtime.

The new Dante-ready TM7 and TM9 units support redundant network connectivity to ensure that users are always able to get an overview of their audio at a glance. Both units automatically detect and adapt to Dante channel names, simplifying the routing process when setting up the audio metering system on the network. Meanwhile, RTW has implemented uncompressed, multi-channel digital audio technology that results in near-zero latency and synchronisation performance.

“It is a great pleasure for us to now offer an audio metering solution that taps directly into the networked audio world of Dante,” said Andreas Tweitmann, CEO of RTW. “It is our mission to give all audio engineers the opportunity to keep their eyes on their audio at all times and thereby deliver the best-sounding results possible.

“And since more and more broadcast and post production facilities are moving toward a Dante network infrastructure, it makes perfect sense to add this connectivity for the latest incarnation of the TM7 and TM9 units.”
