The DB 6 processor ships with a software suite that includes the LoudnessWizard algorithm, which will be used for loudness correction and stereo to surround or surround to stereo conversion. The multichannel TC Delay feature is also included for use live or for lip-sync with a look ahead function. The suite also includes the LM6 Loudness Radar Meter which displays audio loudness data with several options (momentary, history, true peak, program or range) and features a statistics log.
The DB6 is compliant with the major international industry standards, including ITU BS.1770-3, ATSC A/85, EBU R128, ARIB TR-B32, OP-59, etc. It ships with presets designed for these standards.

Each Transmission 3G card features two multichannel processors and can operate with two LM6 Loudness Radar Meters and two Loudness Wizard simultaneously.
