Florian Camerer, ORF - Austrian TV - Vienna, Austria; EBU - European Broadcasting Union
This session will bring participants up to speed regarding most aspects of loudness control and metering. It is targeted to sound engineers in general, giving a brief intro to the algorithm and the metering paradigms and then expanding to common misunderstandings, dangers as well as chances and challenges. Some new concepts like "gating" and "true peak level" will be explained in detail. As chairman of the European loudness group PLOUD and senior post-pro mixing engineer at ORF (Austrian TV), Florian Camerer has enough experience under his belt to provide a thorough workout!
