ATSC Will Host Loudness Summit at HPA Retreat
RANCHO MIRAGE, CALIF.: The Advanced Television Systems Committee is
organizing a half-day seminar on digital audio technology to be held Feb. 16.
The event is being held in conjunction with the Hollywood Post Alliance
Technology Retreat Feb. 16-19 in Rancho Mirage.
The “ATSC Summit on Audio Loudness Management” will provide a follow-up to a seminar
on audio for digital broadcast held last year. The focus of that program was to
identify solutions for dialnorm. This session will examine the ATSC’s
Recommended Practice on such audio loudness issues. Jerry Whitaker, ATSC vice president
standards development, said the HPA Retreat seminar would be a good opportunity
for audio engineers and technology managers to get a handle on the RP and
question the folks who compiled it.
The Audio Summit will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Ranchos Las Palmas
Resort. Additional information and registration can be found on the HPA Web site.
