Re: Loud commericals - CRTC useless
Most of the ads are supplied by the clients, and they are purposely compressed (audio wise) to ensure they are loud and clear at a lower volume. This means, the soft/quiet sounds are the same levels as the loud sounds. Shows tend to leave things to breathe, letting quiet sounds and loud sounds be quiet different. This also keeps sound quality.
I for one find it funny that so many people are soo worked up over this. Canada is one of the only countries in the world that has felt the need to play BIG BROTHER and put in rules on this. There is soo many better things the government could waste our money on than this.
Online audio is not part of this, nor should it be. An idea.. You have a volume control.. USE IT! Don't like it, TURN IT OFF, or TURN THE CHANNEL!
Radio compresses the snot out of what they spit out of their studios before it's transmitted.. Compare it to a CD.. you quickly notice what damage this does. Without the same compression on TV, and huge loss in sound quality, it's going to be impossible for any broadcaster to level out all the sounds. It will sound awful once wind noise and crickets are as loud as a jet engine. It would be a better idea to have the compression installed on your own TV so not everyone has to suffer with your idea of good sound.
