With the PEM series HMS now offers more than just "channel-in-the-box". The PEM series combines multichannel playout, MPEG-Encoder and TS-Multiplexer in a single box and aims at broadcasters, network operators and IPTV providers.
On time for IBC: HMS DiSA now supports loudness normalization compliant with EBU R128: With the recommendation "R128" the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has defined basic rules to reduce differences in the perceived loudness of subsequent audio and video clips. For many years this phenomenon was an annoyance for TV viewers – especially during commercial breaks of movies (keyword: "loudness war"). With EBU R128 this problem is now a thing of the past and the recommendation is already applied by German TV stations since August 31 2012.
