Navigating today’s loudness standards can be confusing to young engineers and others not frequently working with these requirements. This panel of audio experts and educators will address the justification for these standards, what they mean for us and how to optimize our workflow to accommodate their requirements over a variety of commercial delivery formats. Particular attention will be payed to balancing problematic sound sources with dialogue, the state-of-the-art in metering, formats and delivery methods, and workflow considerations with which young engineers and interns should be familiar.
