SP2 - Cinema Sound Standards Collapse Leaving Turmoil—An Overview of the State of the ArtChair:
Brian McCarty, Coral Sea Studios Pty. Ltd - Clifton Beach, QLD, Australia
Glenn Leembruggen, Acoustics Directions Pty Ltd. - Summer Hill, NSW, Australia; Sydney University
David Murphy, Krix Loudspeakers - Hackham, South Australia
Dr. Floyd Toole first documented in his book Sound Reproduction: Loudspeakers and Rooms in 2008 the failure of the Standards process in producing quality sound in movie theaters. The work was expanded on in experiments done by a group led by Philip Newell in Europe, and this work was cited by Brian McCarty in order to get both the SMPTE and AES to begin work on scientific, comprehensive new Standards for cinema and eventually home audio reproduction.
This workshop reviews the flawed Standards and presents new experiments that further define the areas of work that will need to be undertaken for new Standards to be written.
