The postfix to the dB tells you the reference level, for example, dBm is referenced to 1 milliwatt, dBu to 0. For this purpose, most broadcasting stations use QPPM Quasi Peak Programme Meters to measure quasi peak levels that, as we will see later, can actually lie below the ‘true peaks’. Created the popular Eu R Loudness Recommendation, making sure there is a common, vendor-independent and relatively simple way to measure loudness.

EBU Technology & Innovation – Loudness (PLOUD)

Due to the massive interest in this topic, group participation in principle is limited to broadcasters and equipment manufacturers.

Many vendors support ‘EBU Mode’ in their products. The updates take into account There are no specific rules provided for IS without voice-over!

For example, an audio signal with a large LRA might need to be compressed, and podcasts generally require a lower LRA than classical music recordings. Can I still use dynamic compression? During IBCthere will be plenty of This frequency-dependency of loudness perception is described by the equal loudness contours.
