Loud and Clear: Further Modifications to CALM Act Explained

This month, the FCC made some further modifications to the CALM Act in an effort to moderately decrease the perceived loudness of commercials. When calculating the average loudness of a particular commercial, gating now must be employed in an effort to prevents advertisers from including  passages of a commercial that have low volume or are silent. With these algorithmic modifications, the volume of some commercials may be reduced, thereby decreasing viewers overall perception of loudness and increasing their quality of experience.
