Test & measurement equipment
Cobalt Digital SpotCheck
Audio loudness measurement and recorded data logging system has been enhanced with up to 16 video channels containing up to 32 audio channels; the new version — SpotCheck-2016 — monitors, meters and logs loudness compliance over extended time-periods; now supports codecs H.264, MPEG-2, MP1L2, DD and AAC.
Loudness compliance system
Emotion Systems eFF 3.0
Latest version of the loudness compliance and normalization application features Dolby E, True Peak, Short Term and Momentary Coorection using innovative DNA and loudness range control; perfect tool for CALM compliance; provides multi-profile loudness correction within a single file for multi-language, international delivery requirements.
Logging and monitoring video/audio legalizer keeps a timed log of every non-compliant video or audio event requiring correction in the course of a 24-hour transmission schedule; this enables broadcasters to archive a record of as-run conformance data in countries where legislation makes this compulsory.
