Product Description

Details

TouchMonitor is the ultimate, stand-alone loudness meter solution, featuring a touch screen with highly flexible layout options, an extremely consistent loudness readout and compatibility with all major  broadcast standards, including ITU-R BS.1770, EBU R128 and ATSC A/85.

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.
