The Status of Current Standards in Audio and Acoustics
Existing standards in the audio field into several categories. The most commonly recognized is the configuration standard which provides dimensional and operating limits for a device or a process. Such standards have provided us with interchangeable analog tape recordings, for example. Another category is the method for measurement which is sometimes combined with a configuration standard and provides repeatable and reproduceable tests for a device or a process. Other categories include standard definitions, procedures, and performance levels. Such standards usually arise out of a need in the industry and are put into writing by several organizations not always in concert with one another.
