The TC Electronic DB6 Multi 2 is a broadcast transmission audio processor that provides a complete and intelligent loudness management solution to help broadcasters with their loudness responsibilities. It employs a one-step process that preserves the details of your audio, while allowing you to stay compliant with broadcast standards and legislation at all times.

The DB6 Multi 2 comes with two 3G transmission cards, which give you the ability to process two SDI streams with sixteen audio channels, right out of the box. The unit is expandable with one 3G transmission card (available separately), increasing the number of simultaneous SDI streams to three and ideal for any station that needs to process multiple streams simultaneously.

Audio loudness is measured at the input as well as the output of the DB6. In between, the LoudnessWizard algorithm handles everything regarding loudness including automatic format detection, automatic up- and down-conversion, automatic loudness correction, true peak limiting, lip-sync delay with look-ahead capability, all in one single process and for a multitude of broadcast platforms. The unit comes with ready-to-use presets based on international standards

The LM6 loudness radar meter provides an easy way to read loudness with a complete overview. Loudness history is displayed by the radar and momentary loudness is displayed by the outer ring. True peak level is displayed on the right side. Program loudness, range values, or other parameters of your choice are shown at the bottom. You also get 24/7 measurement and logging of key stats for future evaluations and documentation.

The DB6 Multi 2 features a full, dual-redundancy setup with dual fans, dual fuses, and dual power connectors, which you can use with independent power sources. In case of an emergency, the relay bypass ensures that your content is not compromised. The unit is housed in a high-density, 1 RU enclosure to help you save space in your equipment room. Included are two power cords and a USB memory stick with TC Icon software and DB6 software.
