RTW, a manufacturer and distributor of professional audio metering and control devices based in Cologne, Germany, debuted its TouchMonitor series of audio metering products at the recently concluded IBC exhibit in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The TM7 TouchMonitor features a 7-inch touchscreen and the TM9 TouchMonitor has a 9-inch touchscreen. Both units offer flexibility, modularity and an intuitive user interface.

The units' operating concept is based on 16:9 touch-sensitive screens. They offer a built-in online help function and allow for monitoring separate signal groups using multiple instruments at the same time. RTW says that the units could monitor four analog stereo signals on PPM/SPL bar graphs simultaneously, displaying up to 16 analog and/or digital signals. In addition, the TM9 with the 3G-SDI option installed (available during the second quarter of 2011) will be able to display all 32 signals of a 3G-SDI stream in parallel.

The TM7 and TM9 units incorporate a hardware platform featuring a high-performance graphics engine and DSP power as the basis for its display options. Seven different hardware versions are available providing various combinations of analog (D-Sub) and/or digital-audio interfaces. Digital ports are available in the AES3 (D-Sub) or AES3id (BNC) formats. All versions feature a LAN port, a VGA output for connecting external screens, GPIO interfaces, and two USB ports. Standard versions feature desktop enclosures, external power supplies and an integrated stand; RTW also offers OEM versions that can be integrated into mixing-console surfaces.

RTW states that a limited number of TouchMonitor units are scheduled to begin shipping in December, with full production continuing early next year.
