I recently received a letter from Tom Lento, a broadcast technology marketing consultant, commenting on my March 5 column about the variance of audio levels in TV programming
What a year! It's been 12 months now since the terrorist attacks on our country. What's happened? Where are we?
Two months ago we ranted about bad audio, goaded on by reader Bro Duke, who wants the FCC to DO SOMETHING about it! Well, we got a fair amount of mail, with some interesting horror stories.
As I noted last month, audio authority John Woram has said, "Audio is a hallucination where the sufferer believes that he or she hears music coming from a small wooden box."
Ahh, the mysteries of the wooden box, aka the loudspeaker. There are a couple of ways to consider loudspeakers.
I promised last month I’d talk a little more about the design of control rooms, as part of our inquiry into the care and feeding of loudspeakers.
Last month I ranted about the state of loudspeaker design and performance, and promised you that I’d devote several columns to this worthy topic.
As I noted a couple months back, we tend to devalue the more familiar and prosaic items in our technology toolkit. It seems to me that we’re particularly indifferent to loudspeakers.
I know, I know! I promised you that I was done with resolution issues. But as I wrapped up my rant, a couple of industry pros really got on my case about some of the things I was saying.
