EBU GROUP on LOUDNESS (PLOUD)

 

  This Group deals with Loudness in broadcasting.

 

 

Main publications

 

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

 

Current focus of the group is on the use of loudness normalisation for radio.

 


Participation


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.
