Broadcast Wave Format

Helps Members to meet the requirements of contemporary audio production and processing needs.

The Broadcast Wave Format was first specified by EBU in 1997. Since then, it has been updated several times and will continue to evolve to meet the requirements of contemporary audio production and processing needs.

EBU Technology & Innovation Workplan

Every two years, the EBU develops a roadmap for technology and innovation activities based on the requirements and inputs given by EBU Members. The result of this roadmap is our bi-annual EBU Technology & Innovation Workplan. Strategic programmes and project groups are set up to focus on specific areas of interest.
