This paper addresses the acoustical environments required for good "live" and produced cable and satellite transmissions. This information is applicable to all individuals involved with cable, television, teleconferencing and videoconferencing.
Discussions of the effects of systems typical to the industry and how the acoustical environment goals are difficult to attain, are included. Typical and common solutions will be discussed base on case histories. The terminology of noise and acoustic descriptors are defined. The basic principles involved in providing noise reduction or to reduce noise within a space are also related. Included are descriptions of how generalized acoustic data can reduce the likelihood of attaining the desired acoustical goals along with a practical acoustical checklist.
