W20 - Loudness in Broadcasting—EBU Recommendation R 128 Steps on the Gas

Florian Camerer, ORF – Austrian TV, and Chairman of EBU PLOUD
Yannick Dumartineix, TSR Geneva
Matthieu Parmentier, France Television
Alessandro Travaglini, Fox Italia

The EBU group PLOUD has now published all their intended documents, centering around the loudness recommendation R 128. Implementation of this concept is underway, and the loudness normalization paradigm is gaining ground. The end of the "loudness war" is nigh! At least in broadcasting that seems to be the prospect. . . .

In this workshop, members of PLOUD who already implemented the concepts of R 128 will talk about their experiences and illustrate it with examples.
