Outcry at poor sound quality during broadcast

From Malta to Portugal, from The Netherlands to Estonia one thing was clear. The sound quality of yesterday's Eurovision Song Contest qualifier round was not what it should be…

The broadcast of the qualifier round was overshadowed by “a poor sound quality”, as our visitors often described it. The balance between the vocal sound and backing tracks was not in balance during most of the songs. Though, the problem seemed to improve slightly as the evening progressed…

It's most likely the satellite broadcasting was not the reason for the disappointing sound quality, because ABBA's last video ever was of an excellent sound quality! Meanwhile, the sound quality of the various webcasts was good. The sound quality at the press working area could've been better, while the sound quality at the press conference tent was “excellent”, according to the people we spoke with.

Saturday, the 'noise boys' (as the sound crew is often named by the lighting crew) get a chance for a revenge!
