At its IBC2008 stand, Sonifex will show the latest addition to its Redbox range, the RB-TGHD multichannel HD tone generator.

The eight-channel RB-TGHD provides line identification, including BLITS 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound, using a wide range of industry standard tone sequences. It is possible to either automatically cycle through all the available audio tone sequences for each channel configuration or select them manually. A loop mode allows the repetition of tone patterns.

"We have had a number of requests for tone generators at previous IBC exhibitions and the BLITS specification is being widely adopted by many broadcasters worldwide, so it means that it is a good time to release such a product," said Sonifex managing director Marcus Brooke.

Two variations are available. The RB-TGHDX offers balanced AES/EBU outputs on three-pin XLR connectors and the RB-TGHDB has unbalanced digital outputs on BNC connectors. Both provide eight balanced analog outputs on three-pin XLR connectors.

Sonifex will also show its RM reference monitor range, the DHY-03 digital telephone hybrid, the S2 analog/digital mixer and TB talkback intercoms.

In addition, there will be demonstrations of V2.0 D:Scribe transcription software with the Net-Log audio logger, which records four channels of audio to an internal hard disk for playback across a network.
