Dolby Media Meter is an innovative software tool that accurately measures loudness the way your viewers experience it in programming for broadcast, packaged media, cinema trailers, video on demand (VOD), and games.
Dolby Media Meter Plugin
Differences in audio levels between programs and channels, or between programs and commercials, are a major annoyance to TV viewers. Although easy to hear, these differences are much more difficult to measure. And without accurate measurement, you can't regulate these irritating shifts in sound level.
Dolby® Media Meter joins the lineup of unique and innovative Dolby tools that solve these measurement problems, accurately and objectively measuring loudness as your viewers subjectively experience it.
Dolby Media Meter features Dialogue Intelligence™ technology, adapted from the award-winning Dolby Program Optimizer DP600. Dialogue Intelligence automatically detects speech in the audio track and only then measures loudness.
Used as a stand-alone product or an AudioSuite plug-in, Dolby Media Meter offers faster-than-real-time, file-based measurement (speed is hardware-dependent). You can use this for DVD and Blu-ray Disc™ mastering, and for program creation and quality control applications in audio production, postproduction, and broadcast facilities.
As an AAX plug-in for Avid® Pro Tools®, or as a VST plug-in for applications such as Steinberg® Nuendo® or Sony® Sound Forge™, Dolby Media Meter measures loudness in real time, allowing you to track levels during the mixing process to help meet network delivery requirements. Real-time versions can simultaneously display short- and long-term loudness levels with or without Dialogue Intelligence.
For accuracy, flexibility, and ease of use, Dolby Media Meter delivers an unbeatable value. A paid upgrade is also available if you already own the original Dolby Media Meter.
Powerful Dolby technologies help you control broadcast loudness problems and ensure a better listening experience.
Dialogue Intelligence is a speech-gating technology that only measures loudness on the segments of a program that contain dialogue.
Dolby Media Meter uses the ITU-R BS.1770-1, BS-1770-2, or BS-1770-3 algorithms and includes all the measurements required for EBU R128 mode operation to measure loudness the way viewers subjectively experience it.
Options include Leq(m) for cinema trailers and commercials, Leq(A), True Peak, Dialogue Range, and Loudness Range.
Dolby Media Meter adds a number of features to the original Dolby Media Meter, including level meters, a user-selectable peak limiter, a warning setting with user-selectable function and threshold, and real-time graphing.
Dolby Media Meter runs as an Apple® Macintosh® or a Microsoft® Windows® stand-alone application and as a plug-in for the following platforms:
