|This Group deals with Loudness in broadcasting.|
The following five documents provide the core of the EBU Loudness work:
|EBU R128||Loudness Recommendation|
|EBU Tech 3341||Metering specification|
|EBU Tech 3342||Loudness Range descriptor|
|EBU Tech 3343||Practical Guidelines|
|EBU Tech 3344||Distribution Guidelines|
Test material to help validate meter implementations is available too:
EBU Loudness test set (various different sequences)
Members of the Group often participate in seminars and workshops. You can find more resources in the Loudness section of this website.
Current focus of the group is on the use of loudness normalisation for radio.
Due to an overwhelming interest in this Group's work we have to limit participation to mainly broadcaster representatives and loudness equipment manufacturers. We can help you get in touch with a national contact nevertheless.
