iZotope launches RX Loudness Control

DetailsMichelle Clancy | 08 May 2015

iZotope has launched RX Loudness Control for broadcasters.

In many places around the world, television commercials cannot legally be louder than the programming that they're embedded in. The offline plug-in, part of the RX family of post-production products, analyses and renders a mix for loudness compliance on the fly.

RX Loudness Control automates a historically tedious workflow. iZotope said that audio or video post-production professionals working for broadcast can click once to analyse the audio, and again to comply.

The plug-in has extensive presets for various loudness standards including BS.1770-1-3, EBU R128 s1, and ATSC A/85. Users also have the ability to create and save their own presets for a unique television spec if needed. A history graph and loudness report inform the user whether audio is within the appropriate tolerance, and if not, illustrate where overflows may be occurring. In order to both document and prove loudness, loudness history can be exported as a CSV spreadsheet.

Features include support for surround sound (up to 5.1) and the EBU R128 s1 standard, the ability to generate a .CSV loudness report, direct integration on the Adobe CC platform and as an AudioSuite DPM/AAX plug-in.

RX Loudness Control is compatible with Avid Media Composer, Avid Pro Tools and Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
