Tailored for Broadcast
Broadcast 6000 is tailormade for broadcast production - post or live alike.
Starting in the 80's, we pioneered the field of digital audio and later we did the same regarding perceived loudness. Since then, we have provided the pro audio and broadcast markets with state-of-the-art tools.
With Broadcast 6000 we have collected all of the tools we know broadcasters use with System 6000. Plus we added our AM6 Annoyance Meter to top off the package.
In other words, it has become even easier for you to find the right combination of tools for this legendary platform. We have simply gathered and pre-installed the full package so the system is ready to perform right out of the box.
Broadcast 6000 includes our legendary LM6 Loudness Radar Meter for a complete loudness overview at a glance, while ALC6 corrects loudness transparently in real time.
UnWrap HD lets you upconvert a stereo signal into a convincing 5.1 surround version. Plus you get Dmix to go the other way around - from 5.1 to stereo.
For cinema production - such as movie trailers - you get the AM6 Annoyance Meter that complies with the TASA standard.
On top of that, you also get a wide variety of tools such as multiband dynamics, EQ, precision summing mixer and 5.1 monitor control.
The hardware platform of Broadcast 6000 has been tested intensively in the most demanding production environments since 1999.
You will find System 6000 in literally thousands of world-leading recording, film, post and mastering studios all over the world, and in quite a few OB vans and broadcast production studios as well.
The platform has won no less than three of the prestigious TEC Awards over the years. In 2000 for the original System 6000, in 2005 for Mastering 6000 and in 2010 for System 6000 MKII.
