Just a few days before IBC opens its doors, ALC NetworX, the inventors of the RAVENNA AoIP standard, announces that RTW Cologne, the company best known for their reliable and ultra-precise visual audio monitoring tools, has joined the RAVENNA community.
For 50 years, RTW from Cologne has accompanied the steady technological progress in the pro audio industry with innovative products and technologies for visual audio monitoring in broadcast, production, post-production, and quality control. Whether audio metering, loudness metering, or signal monitoring, RTW’s state-of-the-art systems are the result of a future-oriented strategic approach that focuses on continuous development while paying maximum attention to reliability and protecting their clients’ investments.
RTW’s latest TouchMonitor product range marks a paradigm shift in visual audio monitoring and loudness metering. Following the recent introduction of a Dante™ interface for the TM7 and TM9, it was therefore a logical step to offer full AES67 compatibility with the integration of a native RAVENNA interface option.
“Professional audio is rapidly moving toward IP Audio solutions. And since our core customers are broadcasters throughout the world, embracing RAVENNA for our TouchMonitor platform was simply an incredibly logical – and a highly strategic – step. In short, we very are excited about this partnership and are confident that it will be very well received in the broadcast audio-monitoring market,” says Andreas Tweitmann, CEO at RTW.
Andreas Hildebrand, RAVENNA Evangelist at ALC NetworX, adds: “We are very pleased to welcome RTW to the RAVENNA Partner community. Their core expertise in audio visual monitoring tools adds significant value to the RAVENNA community. Being able to directly connect monitoring equipment to the network environment provides a huge increase in system flexibility. With the new RAVENNA interface, RTW’s monitoring solutions can not only offer full AES67-compatibility but also provide future extensibility following the release of new standards in this field.”
