), a long-time distributor of RTW, coordinated the sale.

Audio loudness standards have been a key concern for many broadcasters worldwide. That being said, the company sought a new tool that would help it to monitor its audio levels consistently. Astro purchased the TM7 TouchMonitors, provided by Stagetec Asia, after demoing a few of the units during its live broadcasts. The company will use them to ensure that all of its production facilities, including its fleet of OB vans, are using the metering and analyzers to have uniform loudness levels across its facility. “The TM7 TouchMonitor suits our applications very well,” says Dennis Dovale, Vice President, Astro Production Services. “In order to ensure that all personnel and operators have the same frequency, when talking about the audio loudness metering and reading, they need a good monitoring tool such as RTW’s TM7.” RTW, meanwhile, is thrilled to make further inroads into the Asian market with this sale. “We are happy to support such a prominent broadcaster as Astro,” says Andreas Tweitmann, CEO, RTW. “The entire line of TouchMonitor audio meters was created to help engineers monitor their loudness levels easily and consistently. The fact that Astro has found our TM7 to be efficient and easy to use is further proof of RTW’s commitment to offering modern, innovative solutions for today’s loudness management issues.”
