How does my streaming volume graph work?
The volume level of incoming stream audio is measured once per minute and provides stream administrators with a volume graph.
This can be seen via the Volume graph tab on the admin panel on your streaming page as shown below:
The volume graph measures audio levels in LUFS:
- LUFS units is part of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) Recommendation 128 for loudness normalisation and maximum level of audio signals, an internationally and generally used standard.
- The True Peak (red line) measure the peak audio volume and should never go above the zero level as distortion and clipping will occur.
- The Integrated Level (blue line) measures the average audio level experienced by the listener.
We recommend a mix that ensures the True Peak (red) is close to 0 but never exceeds it, and the Integrated (blue) value should be around -10 LUFS.
Lower (softer) values are also fine, but Integrated values that average below -20 LUFS may become too soft for listeners.
