Extending loudness toolkit NUGEN Audio, creator of intuitive tools for audio professionals, has launched ISL, an inter-sample True- Peak limiter that gives complete control over peak levels in audio signals from mono to 5.1. ISL diverges from traditional approaches to limiting by measuring inter-sample peaks and allowing the user to set the true-peak limit, rather than the traditional threshold at which limiting begins. By measuring and correcting for inter-sample levels, ISL protects against distortion that can be introduced when codecs such as mp3 and AAC are applied downstream Getting the picture at IBC I ntegrated Microwave Technologies, LLC (IMT) introduced its RF Central Direct VU handheld dual- diversity COFDM HD receiver at IBC. Like all NUGEN Audio tools, ISL is intuitive to use and lets audio professionals mix with their ears, leaving ISL to ensure compliance with loudness standards. Designed for the transparent limiting of relatively dynamic high-quality audio, ISL can also be used to hard-limit and reduce dynamic range where required. The RF Central Direct VU HD is a COFDM (DVB- T-compliant) diversity handheld receiver/monitor. It offers exceptional RF performance and durability, combined with true ease of operation and superb MPEG-4 decoding. The unit displays COFDM video transmissions using a built-in internal nine-inch 16:9-format screen using a bright, high-resolution LCD screen. The display also features an easy to use, menu- driven interface.  Much more than a COFDM handheld receiver, the Direct VU HD can send video over Ethernet to remote software or hardware decoders. This allows multiple remote viewers to monitor the same video simultaneously. An SDI output enables the user to view the incoming video on an external monitor if needed. Telecast Fiber Systems integrates into Miranda brand Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has announced that its Telecast Fiber Systems brand is being integrated into its recently acquired Miranda brand. Telecast becomes a featured product brand under the Miranda umbrella, which now boasts the only solutions portfolio in the industry that connects broadcast and related workflows from content acquisition through playout. 14 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE Touchmonitor introduced at IBC R TW introduced a new version of its successful TouchMonitor TM3 unit at IBC.
