An Afternoon on Loudness

On the Tuesday of the show, we hosted a loudness seminar where three high-profiled speakers gave individual one-hour sessions:

Florian Camerer (Chairman of EBU's P/LOUD Group)

Florian Camerer on the ITU BS.1770-2 Gating Scheme, ATSC A/85 and CALM

Further, there was a very interesting development regarding international loudness standards at NAB 2012. One of the main differences between EBU's R128 standard (Europe) and ATSC's A/85 recommendation (US) is that EBU's version contains a gating scheme. Without going into the technical details, it was indicated that ATSC would be likely to implement this gating scheme in a future revision. If/when that happens, it will definitely be great news, as we would then be taking a huge step towards having loudness guidelines that applies globally. Florian Camerer elaborates in this short video.
