RTW, a leading manufacturer and distributor of professional audio metering and control devices, will share some of the knowledge it has gleaned over the course of its 40-year history in pro audio with conference attendees at the Broadcast Video Expo (BVE) 2010. The company's technical director, Mike Kahsnitz, is to present "Using Loudness Metering in Production Workflows," a free seminar on audio loudness issues, at the show on Wednesday, 17 February, at 2 p.m. in the Audio Room of Earls Court 2.
During the seminar, Kahsnitz will outline the challenges consumers face in controlling loudness levels at home, analyzing several solutions that TV and radio broadcasters can implement to remedy these issues. He will pay special attention to the importance of analyzing, evaluating and correcting incoming audio content during production and distribution, as well as sending out programmes for various applications on separate distribution channels while adapting the time constant of the loudness measurement to the application.
In addition to the topics above, Kahsnitz, a member of the EBU P/Loud group which is currently deliberating European standards for managing loudness, will touch on the benefits and shortcomings of the ITU BS.1771 and EBU guideline and its relation to the standardisation of audio loudness control.
Tickets for the "Using Loudness Metering in Production Workflows" seminar can be obtained at the BVE registration booth on-site and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
