When we watch TV, audio level of program is sometimes too low.  Then, I make volume bigger by remote control.  However, the following commercial program suddenly makes much bigger audio level. That happens because digital broadcasting did not have any regulation to control audio loudness.
Since digital broadcasting has started, audio loudness for TV viewer has been a critical issue. To solve the problem, ITU recommended loudness regulation by ITU BS1770-2 and that has resulted in T032 regulated by JBA, The Japan commercial Broadcasters Association. This regulation will make all broadcasting material’s audio loudness for human beings similar level as below target, no matter how and from where audio material is originally delivered.
Average loudness level: -24LKFS+/-1dB
Lowest loudness level: -28 LKFS
5.1ch surround: -22 LKFS
Due to the situation mentioned as above, loudness meter became inevitable requirement for all broadcasting studio and post production.
Loudness meter/audio monitor, AM-3805 supports
-Display mode as short term (measuring period adjustable), integrated (continuous measurement) and true peak meter
-Measurement mode as stereo, surround and loudness history
-System configuration with PC for higher level analysis
Following modes are prepared for measurement period.
-Momentary 400ms
-Short term 0.4 and 1 to 10sec by 1 second step
-Integrated Whole period of the program (after gating process)
