The TouchMonitor TM3-3G is a compact and versatile solution for metering, deembedding and monitoring of 3G-SDI audio signals using a 4.3? touch screen for vertical or horizontal use. The TM3-3G?s flexible user interface allows for quick and simple preset selection as well as setting the monitoring level (optional licence).
The compact TouchMonitor TM3-3G consists of a display unit for vertical or horizontal use and a remote interface box. With its integrated 3G-SDI deembedder interface, the TM3-3G displays level and loudness of any eight 3G-SDI audio channels. Independently from this, up to 16 SDI audio signals can be sent to eight AES3 outputs (optional license). TM3-3G?s flexible user interface allows the selection of presets quickly and simply with just a finger swipe. The contained comprehensive set of factory presets present a cross-section of the applications, audio connections and standards and allow you to start working right out of the box.
The Devicer Software
Presets can be configured in detail using the Devicer DC1 for Mac OS X? or Windows?. The Devicer?s GUI lets you select, configure and position the instruments you need in a convenient way. The screen layout can be previewed any time so that you always see how your preset will look like on the TM3-3G. Furthermore, Devicer DC1 allows to create several configuration sets with different presets, which may be uploaded to TM3-3G as required. (Devicer DC1 for TM3-3G will be available for free in the Audio Monitors/TouchMonitor TM3-3G section of members area (Manuals & software)).
Besides PPM and True Peak instruments, the TM3-3G features comprehensive loudness measuring features conforming to all relevant international standards (EBU R128, ITU-R BS.1770-3/1771-1, ATSC A/85, ARIB, OP-59, AGCOM, CALM Act). Loudness instruments include single-channel and summing bargraphs, loudness range and numerical displays.
Depending on individual needs, further instruments can be added to TM3-3G with the activation of corresponding software licences. Also, a software bundle can be purchased as a licence upgrade for activating all licences and for expanding the completed feature set with the Loudness Chart instrument. When the software bundle has been installed, upcoming instruments and functions can be added via firmware update.
