Loudness Day: L8 - Loudness in Radio—The Next Step

Florian Camerer, ORF - Austrian TV - Vienna, Austria; EBU - European Broadcasting Union

After the start of the switchover from peak normalization to loudness leveling in TV, the logical progression is the move into Radio. One could argue that due to the hypercompression used in music production and Pop/Rock-stations over the last years, loudness differences are not an issue in Radio.... but that somewhat cynical view is definitely not an excuse to leave out the vast world of Radio programming. On the contrary! Albeit from a different angle and with other strategies, loudness production has many benefits and advantages also for supercompressed Radio stations. In this session those differences and challenges will be examined, and an outlook on the forthcoming work of the EBU-loudness group PLOUD in that area will be given.
