DK-Technologies MSD100C-Loudness tackles broadcast loudness
DK-Technologies featured its new MSD100C-Loudness meter, which was developed in response to requests from broadcasters and production houses, at IBC2008.
The MSD100C-Loudness meter is designed to tackle the issue of the perceived loudness of audio signals. The stand-alone unit incorporates ITU recommendations BS.1770 and BS.1771, which specify the algorithms that should be used to measure program loudness.
It is able to display the loudness of the individual audio channels as well as the sum of the left and right signals and can be used in any broadcast or post-production facility during production or prior to transmission.
The unit provides accurate loudness matching of audio from a number of different sources and offers a selection of working modes, including fast, integrated and gated modes.
