Risskov, Denmark - Nov 11, 2013 - TC Electronic CTO for broadcast and production Thomas Lund and Senior Research Engineer Esben Skovenborg received the Best Peer-Reviewed Paper Award by The Audio Engineering Society at the 135th AES Convention in New York for their convention paper 8983: "Level-Normalization of Feature Films Using Loudness vs. Speech."

"We felt it was important to make this study as films may be made for cinema, but are often viewed on TV, where they have to coexist with all kinds of program material in terms of audio loudness. Further, even if we look at film in an isolated context, there's also a loudness war going on in cinema, and we were trying to understand the reasons why. In broadcast as well as in cinema, it appears the number one goal is to get the overall loudness suitable without hampering speech intelligibility. Speech level is less important," said Thomas Lund.

The full paper will be available in the AES Convention Paper E-Library.
