This recommendation formalises the EBU's position that the renderer and codec, including bit stream and associated technical and descriptive metadata be specified and standardized as part of Next Generation Audio systems based on audio-objects.
- The support of content providers for NGA may be lost because the practical and cost implications will outweigh the benefits of using this new technology.
- Content providers will be bound to specific vendors and both the archive and contemporary productions will rely on formats that cannot be reproduced without vendor-specific technology.
- Programme exchange will be severely compromised if broadcasters use different systems; exchange will rely on the willingness of the vendors to allow and build interfaces between systems.
