From Etere version 29.1, all Etere modules are integrated with ALC (Advanced Loudness Control) and automatic audio control to prevent excessive audio jumps.

Etere launches automatic loudness control for its channel-in-a-box solution, Etere ETX as well as its IP multiviewer solution, ETX-M. It functions both as a loudness measurement and real-time automated leveling. Packed with features to automatically detect loudness problems including automatic jumps between programs and commercials as well as signal handling for all worldwide recommendations for loudness measurement, Etere automatic loudness control is ideal for professional monitoring across content preparation, production and post-production workflows.

The loudness control will respect:
■ ITU R BS-1770
■ ITU R BS-1770-2
■ ITU R BS-1770-3

Integrative with Etere ETX-M's 9 display monitors and with support for up to 30 input sources, users of Etere automatic loudness control is able to manage all loudness monitoring from a single software interface, thus eliminating the high costs and complexity associated with traditional devices. Etere automatic loudness control can be used across multiple applications and devices. In the event of an audio error, authenticated users are notified instantly through alert emails. Etere software lowers costs, increases performance and facilitates audio processing.

Etere ETX-M IP Multiviewer is capable of managing multiple inputs of network and live video sources for a simultaneous broadcast and monitoring from a single software interface. It supports up to 9 display monitors and 30 input sources. It also features email alert setup, log reports as well as real-time previews. Etere ETX-M IP Multiviewer is integrative with Etere ETX Legacy Converter which serves to convert SDI in and SDI out in IP streams with very low CPU impact, enabling it to support multiple channels seamlessly. Etere ETX-M IP Multiviewer also features an integrative Newtek NDI converter which can convert SDI or IP streams to NDI IP data with support for all requirements of I/O in a single box. Users are able to select and configure UDP, RTP, RTSP, RTMP, SDI (require I/O card) and SMPTE 2110 (require I/O card). Etere ETX-M IP Multiviewer is also highly redundant, each I/O process is independent of one another and every output can be connected to multiple NDI sources. It is possible to create 2 I/O in different Etere ETX-M IP Multiviewer hardware that acts as main and clone, with external main or backup switching.
