DK-Technologies in Copenhagen, Denmark, announces a new software upgrade that allows existing DK customers to adapt their audio meters so that the display shows loudness in a clear and easy to read format, while still showing any of the usual DK metering scales. The company states that no matter what loudness measurement standard the industry finally decides to adopt, all DK meters will be upgradable to accommodate those recommendations.

“Despite claims made by some manufacturers, DK is the only metering company on the market that has grasped this thorny issue and made sense of it,” says DK’s sales and marketing director, Richard Kelley. “Our software already incorporates the 400Hz and 1kHz reference frequencies that are likely to be adopted by the broadcast and advertising authorities, and we are making it very easy for customers to upgrade so that they don’t have to invest in costly new meters to meet future requirements.
“There is no doubt that loudness is currently a hot topic for the broadcast and post-production industries, which is why we are making it a priority in terms of product development,” Kelley adds. “With this new upgrade customers can literally see what they hear, to any current or future standard, on a very simple display.”
DK customers who already own an audio meter in the MSD100C or MSD200C Series can apply for a voucher that allows them to upgrade their software for euro350 (approximately $441 USD). Normally this upgrade would cost euro700 (approximately $882 USD). These vouchers will be available from DK-Technologies at AES London (booth 1207) and at IBC 2010. They are also available via the DK-Technologies Website and through various online promotions in conjunction with the media.
Upgrades for the MSD600M++ and the PT0760M are also available through local DK dealers, a list of which can be found on DK-Technologies' Website.
