Tokyo-based equipment manufacturers Hayakumo have released new hardware VU meters designed for use in home, pro and broadcast studios.
The Foreno is a desktop stereo meter which conforms to a number of professional standards, including the BTS5703 standard used by NHK, the Japan Broadcasting Corporation.
The mechanical meters themselves, which are illuminated by LEDs, have been designed to ensure reliability and longevity. They respond to signals in the range 30Hz-15kHz, and have an integration time of 0.3 seconds (±10%).
