Let the Arrows Guide You
The two arrows in the Program Loudness section indicate in which direction you should go - and to which degree.
If both arrows are green as in the example to the right, you are good to go.
Your Program Loudness level is within target, and no further adjustments are necessary.
If the upper arrow is yellow, your material is too loud and you should decrease the volume to hit the target.
If the upper arrow is red, your track is much too loud, and you should lower the volume drastically.
If the lower arrow is yellow, your material is too soft and you should increase the volume to hit the target.
If the lower arrow is red, your track is much too soft, and you should raise the volume drastically.

Keeping You Up To Date
We have been listened to by those actively setting broadcast standards - we've even donated our technology to many of the same international bodies that impact your broadcast work.
Legislation on loudness in television is constantly evolving. However, regardless of your location and no matter which TC Electronic Loudness units you use, we will always help you remain compliant with the latest revision of the broadcast standard that impacts your work.
Defined by The International Telecommunication Union, the ITU BS.1770 recommendation is global and one of the most important broadcast standards as many other standards are based on it.
Our broadcast products supports all revisions of BS.1770, including the latest BS.1770-3.
The P/LOUD group, which is part of The European Broadcasting Union (EBU), has defined the R128 standard that applies to many European countries.
ATSC A/85 is specified by The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) and applies to US broadcasters. A/85 is rooted in BS.1770 Loudness and True-peak level and uses LKFS as loudness unit.
Defined by the Association of Radio and Television Businesses (ARIB), TR-B32 is a Japanese broadcast standard that builds on ITU BS.1770-2.
Keeping track of the multitude of issues around loudness can be a challenge. That's why we've created a one-stop dedicated loudness website where you'll find critical information on the most important issues.
The site is an answer to the highly relevant
"What Is Loudness, and Why Is It Important?"
In the Press
There's a reason that world-leading broadcast magazine regularly invite us to share our knowledge: we've been pioneers in the digital audio world since 1985.
We've taken part in research studies and the definition of international broadcast standards right from the start, donating technology which has become a crucial part in new, open international standards.
