The Pandora portable loudness-monitoring box now has another component, a software release mother company Wohler Technologies says includes compatibility with ITU-R BS.1770-1 as well as ITU-R BS.1770-2 and EBU R128.

The new software release also reportedly doubles the rate at which the loudness measurement display is updated. “By taking this rate up to two updates per second, Pandora provides even greater responsiveness to changing loudness levels while maintaining a clear indication of those changes,” Wohler says.

Other enhancements to Pandora’s measurement-and-display capabilities include larger display of the "average" measurement on the numeric display screen. To simplify the loudness measurement of such “short programs” as commercials, the "average" display begins with the first measured sample, making the "average" measurement immediately available when the loudness measurement is started.

The Pandora portable loudness analyzer itself monitors as many as eight channels of audio embedded in 3G/HD/SD-SDI or eight AES channels; via the Wohler Loudness application, it allows users to monitor, analyze and demonstrate audio loudness levels using an iPad or iPod touch.

The new Pandora software release is available for download from the iTunes App Store now.
