HHB Communications Ltd. is hosting the exclusive world debut of the new TC Electronic aNorm loudness algorithm and the latest products from co-exhibitors TC Electronic at IBC 2014 in Hall 8 on Stand 8.D56.
TC Electronic’s aNorm normalisation algorithm provides innovative loudness adjustment features that offer a new approach for user-defined Targets for Program Loudness and Loudness Range (LRA). Complementing aNorm is the new Butterfly Processing Meter that offers both graphical and numerical displays of Program Loudness and Loudness Range parameters at all stages of the process.
The aNorm algorithm and Butterfly Meter are part of the new LoudnessWizard II license for TC Electronic’s DB6 Broadcast Audio Processor. TC Electronic’s Thomas Valter, VP of Business Management told us…
We are proud to offer second-generation loudness normalisation and new loudness processing metering to all audio-conscious broadcasters. aNorm adapts seamlessly to your content to achieve a transparent result where delicate production balances aren’t washed out. It is also easy to use, and it even leads to new transition processing never before possible.
