RTVS Slovakia achieves loudness compliance with new management, monitoring tools
Slovak TV, part of public broadcaster Radio and Television of Slovakia (RTVS), has adopted a suite of Nugen Audio loudness tools — including VisLM-H visual loudness meter, ISL inter-sample true-peak limiter, LM-Correct stand-alone loudness tool, and LMB batch-processing loudness correction tool — enabling compliance with the Slovak government’s recent loudness regulations.
“Loudness regulation is sweeping Europe, and Slovakia is among the many countries that are adopting measures based on the European EBU-R128 standard. Slovak TV is leading the charge to help provide a more enjoyable audio experience for its television viewers,” said Jon Schorah, founder and creative director, Nugen Audio. “Our partner, G-tec, has worked hard to ensure that all Slovak broadcasters have the tools they need to meet upcoming loudness standards and position NUGEN Audio products as critical solutions.”
Local distributor G-tec recommended the Nugen Audio tools as part of a broader project designed to modify Slovak TV’s operation for loudness monitoring, correction, and compliance. The Loudness Toolkit, consisting of the VisLM-H, ISL, and LM-Correct plug-ins for Avid | Pro Tools, provides everything Slovak TV’s audio engineers need to produce loudness-normalised audio according to EBU-R128. In addition, LMB provides offline loudness and true-peak analysis and correction of audio files to meet the standard.
