The current practices for calibrating cinema rooms date back to the early 1970s. Much has been learned since then about the perception of sound, and measurement techniques have advanced greatly. Evidence has been growing that the present degree of room-to-room compatibility leaves much to be desired, and complaints about loudness and intelligibility problems persist. This paper looks at reassessing the whole process of the loudspeaker and room calibration from a modern perspective.
