Studer and RTW announce deal to integrate Loudness Metering with Vista range of consoles

Harman’s Studer has announced the introduction of Loudness Metering for its entire range of Vista digital consoles, following a collaboration with RTW of Koeln, Germany.

RTW will be providing a special version of the TM7 touchscreen metre to be built into the metre bridge of Vista 9 and Vista 5 M2 consoles, as the TM7 metre was seen as the natural choice to complement the Vistonics user interface that Vista customers have become familiar with over the years.

The TM7 metre will include custom metre presets, which provide both Loudness Metering to EBU R 128 and ITU BS1770 and traditional bar graph and moving needle metering to many international standards. This Loudness Meter may be retrofitted to all Vista 9 consoles.

Bruno Hochstrasser, Studer general manager said, “This is a new chapter in our excellent relationship with RTW who has provided traditional meters to Studer for many years. The integration with our Vista range will provide our customers with integrated and easy capability to comply with new regulations and to improve their services.”
