Volume of Slovak TV stations regulated

SLOVAK television should broadcast without fluctuations in volume as of the start of 2014, with Slovakia’s implementation of the Loudness Recommendation EBU (European Broadcasting Union) R-128. The Culture Ministry regulation became valid as of January 1, and is linked to a revision to the law on broadcasting and retransmission that became effective the same day, the SITA newswire wrote.

SLOVAK television should broadcast without fluctuations in volume as of the start of 2014, with Slovakia’s implementation of the Loudness Recommendation EBU (European Broadcasting Union) R-128. The Culture Ministry regulation became valid as of January 1, and is linked to a revision to the law on broadcasting and retransmission that became effective the same day, the SITA newswire wrote.

The regulation will require TV stations to broadcast at the same, uniform volume level. The law on broadcasting and retransmission already prohibited the airing of commercials at louder volumes than TV programmes in Slovakia.

EBU R128, or the European Broadcasting Union Recommendation R128, is a set of rules regarding volume normalisation and the permitted maximum level of audio signals during broadcasts, and is valid across Europe.
