RTW TouchControl 5 Monitor Controller & Audio Meter
RTW has expanded its focus on visualizing audio in broadcast , production , post production , and quality control to now also comprise monitor control with the introduction of TouchControl 5 .
TouchControl 5 is a monitor controller and audio meter with an user interface and a small footprint that preserves desktop real estate , featuring a 5-in . touchscreen , as well as a rotary knob that also functions as a push button for access to dim or mute functions . The screen layout can be customized by the user via a browser-based application , and TouchControl 5 is able to control up to 32 AoIP audio channels , making it compatible with audio formats from mono to immersive within a Dante audio network .
On the rear panel , a single ethernet port provides both AoIP connection , as well as PoE ( Power over Ethernet ). Further , a studio-grade microphone input with phantom power and a headphones output is available . The mic input could be used for adding a dedicated talkback microphone , but if preferred , TouchControl 5 also features a built-in microphone . Finally , an analog line out connection makes it easy to add a pair of external speakers in case they are not already connected via AoIP .
