Every day, millions of people adjust their level controls over and over. Why? Because of the most fundamental audio issue of all - the control of loudness. Rather than just measuring peak levels, LM5D combine frequency weighting with an energy-integrated measure of sound, or equivalent continuous sound level, abbreviated Leq. Broadcast has standardized on Leq(K) for measuring loudness, and for the balancing of programs.Learn More About LM5D TDM
Recognizing requests from many Pro Tools users producing audio for broadcast as well as for cinema, an Leq(M) based radar meter is available: The AM6. The radar epitomizes an intuitive and efficient way of visualizing loudness or annoyance over time, while the integrated Leq(M) number indicates the status of the entire trailer or commercial with regard to regulatory limits.
TASA, MPAA, Dolby, DTS and others were involved in the definition of Leq(M), which has been adopted in several countries.Learn More About AM6 TDM
