TC Electronic Introduces xApp Technology for Transparency, Consistency

TC Electronic LM6 Radar Loudness Meter

TC Electronic in Risskov, Denmark, introduces its xApp technology, which is designed to ensure seamless transitions between versions and platforms of the company’s Radar Loudness Meter (LM2, LM5D and LM6). LM6 is available for System 6000 MKII, DB4 MKII, DB8 MKII, TM7 and TM9 hardware units; LM2 is a stereo version bundled with the LM2 hardware unit; LM5D is a TDM plug-in for Pro Tools HD; and recently, TC launched LM6 as a VST, AU, RTAS and AAX Native plug-in.

The various versions of TC’s Radar Loudness Meter originate from the same basic algorithm, and are designed to deliver the ultimate loudness overview of any audible source. TC states that its xApp technology allows these versions to be 100-percent consistent with regard to core features across all available versions. The Radar Loudness Meter will display exactly the same descriptor numbers (for example, Loudness Range and Program Loudness) when identical program material is being measured by either one of the LM6 plug-in formats or the versions that run on TC hardware.

Additionally, version updates—for example, in connection with updates of significant international broadcast standards such as ITU BS.1770-2, ATSC A/85 and EBU R128—will be streamlined across all radar Loudness Meter compatible platforms. TC states that users of TC’s Radar Loudness Meter “will always be among the first to comply with the newest versions of these important broadcast standards, no matter which platform they have decided to use.”
