WAVES AUDIO - tackling Vuvuzela noise issues
Broadcasters including the BBC have received scores of complaints about the high-impact noise of the Vuvuzela horn instrument favoured by many fans at the FIFA World Cup in South Africa. But working in double quick-time, Waves has devised a new solution to reduce the amount of noise.
Cooperating with a major TV broadcaster, Waves has created a real-time processing chain comprising two plug-ins: the WNS Waves Noise Suppressor and the Q10 Paragraphic Equalizer. WNS Waves Noise Suppressor is a real-time noise reduction plug-in for use in both indoor and outdoor environments with constant or modulating noise, while the Q10 Paragraphic Equalizer delivers precision equalisation in any audio environment.
Together, these two audio plug-ins are said to reduce the Vuvuzela noise and increase the intelligibility of the game announcers’ play-by-play action and commentary. The processing chain is already being used by several major broadcast outlets.
