ANNOUNCEMENT FOR TC-SDCTV MEMBERS
As we approach our 135th New York Convention time next month, your TC is working diligently to present a broad program on "Sound for Picture", as well as prepare for discussions on possible new Standards work for the Society.
We'll be hearing from our Subcommittee on Cinema Loudness, who've been busy doing testing at movie theaters and will have some interesting findings to report. We've also received an additional proposal from Alessandro Travaglini and his colleagues in Italy on the subject.
The preliminary draft TC agenda has been posted in the documents section or can be found at this link:
We look forward to seeing all of you in New York soon!
Current Areas Of Work
Standards work to produce a modern, workable, and accurate procedure to test and calibrate a sound system is underway as SC-04-08.
FOR THOSE WORKING ON THE LOUDNESS SUBCOMMITTEE . . .
Co-Chair Eelco Grimm has provided the official report prepared by the Belgian Government, Department of Environment, on the Cinema Loudness issues they are experiencing in the Benelux countries.
The report is written in Flemish (Dutch). Google Translate is your friend!
This has been enormously helpful in defining the scope of the problems being experienced there.
