RTW To Present Speech Intelligibility Tech

06/11/2018

GER: RTW has announced that it will demonstrate its new speech intelligibility technology, as well as its new Version 7 software for its TouchMonitor series, at Tonmeistertagung 2018, stand 1-03. 
 
Developed in partnership with the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology (IDMT) in Oldenburg, and funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), RTW’s new speech intelligibility research technology provides real-time audio analysis of film and TV dialogues. 
 
The technology addresses the problem that many viewers have difficulty understanding verbal materials in shows and movies. Specific complaints include that an actor does not articulate or that there is too much background noise. 
 
“RTW’s speech measurement technology aims to eliminate much of this auditory stress before it even makes it to the ears of the viewer,” said Andreas Tweitmann, CEO of RTW. “We are incredibly proud to once again be at the forefront of research and development that will change the landscape of audio production. We look forward to implementing our findings and technology into future audio tools.”
 
RTW will be demonstrating the new technology using a real-time analysis tool that clearly displays the current level of speech intelligibility in an audio project. The company will also showcase the latest firmware v7 for its TouchMonitor series, a complete line of audio metering units designed for the production, post-production and broadcast markets.
