|The Broadcast Wave File format has been an essential part of the professional audio world for a good few years now. Like everything else the format must evolve to continue meeting the requirements demanded of it by contemporary audio production and processing needs.|
The group has been created to work on three tasks related to BWF and RF64:
1) to add loudness metadata to the format;
2) to clarify the specification of the calculation of the FileSecurityCode;
3) to consider ways in which multi-channel audio formats that have no specific loudspeaker positions associated with them, for example Ambisonic B format, should use dwChannelMask.
