Our Next Chapter Meeting
September 26th
TV Processing & Loudness by Bob Orban

This live interactive web presentation will cover Orban's approach to automatic, CALM-Act-compliant loudness control as embodied in the Optimod-TV 8685 Surround Loudness Controller, and will discuss the features of the 8685 in detail. It will discuss how Orban combines the CBS Technology Center and ITU-R BS.1770 approaches to obtain the advantages of both. It will cover the concept of "genre" in the context of BS.1770, as first introduced in a 2015 AES Recommendation, and how taking genre into account can reduce some of the practical objections that have been raised as a result of experience with normalizing all program material to the same BS.1770 target loudness. It will present measurements showing the effectiveness of Orban's approach.
