Broadcast Loudness: Mixing, Monitoring and Control

In the satellite broadcast era, to manage transmission from a digital platform that broadcasts dozens of channels and to guarantee loudness consistency to viewers has became a primary, but yet difficult task. In this paper the author describes his work in balancing the broadcasted loudness of the Italian satellite TV platform "SKY Italia". In fact, for a few years, its transmissions suffered very audible loudness inconsistency, due to several factors, such as numbers of channels, various content offer, different mastering levels in between programs and interstitials, outsourcing productions from many external facilities, etc. The project lasted for over one year and the results are a much improved audio quality and a more balanced loudness consistency throughout all the channels involved.
