Areas of Concentration

A draft Recommended Practice will be available for discussion at the TC meeting in Los Angeles.

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.

The SMPTE has finished their long-awaited B-Chain Study Group report that documents the current performance of both theatres and dubbing rooms in Los Angeles. This will be an additional reference to the poor situation we find ourselves as documented in the IOA presentation by Philip Newell, et. al. (Available in our document library)
