B11 - AUDIO FOR HDTV: DIALNORM

Tim Carroll, Linear Acoustic
Robert Seidel, CBS
What is the magic number…is it 27, is it 24 or maybe it‘s 31?
Dialnorm was designed to help consumers tailor their audio decoding to a variety of listening environments, but how does that work if content providers don’t agree on how to set this vital parameter. Several major networks have picked different values for distribution to their affiliates, and there is certainly no consistency at the station level. Is it a hopeless muddle or simply another opportunity for lively debate? Bring your questions and join the discussion.
