Dolby Media Meter

Dolby has released the Media Meter, a great way to accurately determine Dialnorm levels from within your DAW.

With Dolby® Media Meter, Dolby adds to its lineup of unique and innovative tools that accurately and objectively measure loudness as viewers subjectively experience it. Dolby Media Meter features Dialogue Intelligence™ technology, adopted from the award-winning Dolby DP600 Program Optimizer, that automatically detects and then measures loudness only during the presence of speech in an audio track. Dolby Media Meter measures loudness using the ITU-R BS.1770-1 algorithm, and measurements can be done either with or without Dialogue Intelligence.

Dolby Media Meter runs as a Mac® or Windows® stand-alone application, as a Digidesign® Pro Tools® AudioSuite or RTAS plug-in, and as a plug-in for Minnetonka AudioTools™ AWE. Dolby Media Meter supports measurement of Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby E, and PCM audio formats. All versions of Dolby Media Meter can produce and save log files.

Used as a stand-alone product, Digidesign AudioSuite plug-in, and Minnetonka AudioTools AWE plug-in, Dolby Media Meter is a faster-than-real-time, file-based measurement application.* This is useful for DVD and Blu-ray Disc™ mastering, and for program creation and quality control applications in audio production, postproduction, and broadcast facilities.

As a Pro Tools RTAS plug-in, Dolby Media Meter measures loudness in real time, so that users can track levels during the mixing process to help meet network delivery requirements. The RTAS plug-in can simultaneously display short- and long-term loudness levels that are based on the level of dialogue in the mix.
