Audio normalization is the application of a constant amount of gain to a recording with the goal of bringing the amplitude to a target level. The signal-to-noise ratio and relative dynamics of the audio remain unchanged in the process because the same amount of gain is applied across the entire recording. Is it a good practice to normalize audio? The answer is: sometimes.
Thanks to Over-the-Top (OTT) streaming video, content owners and broadcasters have a very different relationship with the end consumer – often a direct one.

In designing their new AK-UC4000 4K/HD studio camera, the engineers at Panasonic recognized that current 4K UHD studio cameras use smaller pixels to create a higher resolution image. This, they said, leads to less sensitivity and a “noisier” image because there’s less dynamic range.
Since portable video became widespread in the mid-1970s, most videographers shot handheld. Video cameras were heavy — but well balanced — and most professional shooters learned to hold the camera very steady. Now, most cameras are much lighter — often too light for handheld shooting — and gimbals, sliders, motion controllers and stabilizers have filled the void. Does this trend signal a fundamental shift in the way video is shot?
