TM3-3GS skates into the 2018 winter games


Febr. 7, 2018

As part of BNC Broadcast Network Connections GmbH's efforts to increase the capacity of its mobile editing suites, several TM3-3G Smart have been bought for the primarily use in operation for the ORF in the International Broadcast Centre (IBC) in South Korea, where programs for the Winter Games are edited. But they will also be used for ski tournaments, Formula 1 races, cultural events (Salzburger Festspiele, etc.) and current political events such as elections.

“We chose RTW’s TM3-3GS TouchMonitors because they remove the need for a dedicated deembedder,” says Enrico Ganassin, managing partner of BNC Broadcast Network Connections GmbH. “The digital audio outputs are connected to the audio mixing console. The SDI-3G input signal is looped through to the video monitor, which ensures that what we see is exactly what is measured. RTW is our first choice when it comes to audio metering.”

The TouchMonitor TM3-3GS is a compact and versatile fully equipped solution for metering, deembedding and monitoring of 3G-SDI audio signals. With its integrated 3G-SDI deembedder interface, the TM3-3G displays level and loudness of any eight 3G-SDI audio channels. Independently from this, up to 16 SDI audio signals can be sent to eight AES3 outputs.

“We are proud to be part of BNC Broadcast Network Connections GmbH’s specifications for broadcast metering needs at the 2018 Winter Games,” says Andreas Tweitmann, CEO, RTW. “The TM3-3GS’s flexible user interface allows the selection of presets quickly and simply, with just a swipe of the finger. The contained comprehensive set of factory presets are a cross-section of the applications, audio connections and standards, and allow users to start working right out of the box.”
