NAB Show Sneak Peek: TC Electronic Updates DB6

Loudness controller gets new hardware and software

TC Electronic will bring updates to its DB6 loudness controller to the NAB Show.

Available is a new AES I/O option that puts 16 AES3digital audio-compatible unbalanced BNC connectors onto the backplane.

VP of Business Management for Broadcast & Production at TC Electronic Thomas Valter stated that broadcasters can choose whether they want to route only the audio signal through DB6 or not. “Integrating DB6 to an existing transmission system at an insert point is a flexible option to have and it will surely suit some stations better than an SDI-only solution.”

On the software front for the DB6, a new software version is ready. Version 1.30 is a free update.

The company says, “With the new software, broadcasters are able to recall up to 16 scene presets by using GPI 1 and 2 together.”

It explains, “The GPI implementation of DB6 is very extensive, offering switching between up to 16 Scene Presets using only two of its four GPI inputs. Based on this, DB6 may be controlled during playout, or a simple preset selection panel can be designed with easy access to presets and/or emergency override.”

Also, the DB6 can now be remote controlled by multiple instances of TC’s Icon remote software. One more goodie in the update is the ability to copy whole user preset banks to or from files stored on Windows or Mac computers.
