TC Electronic has released a software update for its DB6 intelligent loudness management system.
Using the new software, broadcasters are able to recall up to 16 Scene Presets by using GPI 1 and 2 together. DB6 offers a variety of ways to engage or disengage processing automatically, depending on format, level and physical inputs, while remote control can be achieved via Ethernet, GPI and SDI metadata.
The GPI implementation of DB6 is 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.
Further, it is now possible to control DB6 by multiple instances of the Icon remote, adding a new level of operational flexibility to the platform. It is also possible to copy entire User preset Banks to or from files stored on a PC or Mac.
The update is available as a free download from TC Electronic.
