Audio Channel Issue - Audio Bleed 


"Audio Channel Bleed" is the effect in which information from an audio channel is mixed into another existing audio channel.


Audio Channel Bleed Impacts both Content and Technical Quality of the Asset. The customer experience is negatively impacted by audio playback mixing into another channel's audio, effectively removing spatial effects, and is not typically creative intent.

Severity Structure:




Significant portions of audio appears to be double printed across multiple audio channels with no on-screen motivation.

How to Prevent:

Review all audio busing before printing. 


Likely the audio track/sample was dual bused into two separate channels, dual printing the audio across multiple channels. Check the M&E to ensure that it doesn't exist there, redeliver M&E as well if it is.
