Free “Loudness Metering” Webinar

We’re changing the name of the “Film Sound Discussion Group” to Designing Sound Discussion Group, because it’s silly to think that we’ll never have a live discussion about anything other than film. While I’m on the subject, it’s also high time we scheduled the next webchat!

As the title of the post suggests, in the next presentation I’ll be explaining how, exactly, ITU-R BS.1770 compliant metering methods work, and the standards and applications that have been developed to make use of “loudness” metering. We’ve already mentioned that February is going to be “loudness” month (bottom of the post), and we’re setting up the first full week to make sure everyone can get a strong grasp of what it all means, even if you’ve never explored the subject before. We’ll be capping  the week off with this webinar on Saturday, February 9th, at 11AM (U.S. Eastern Standard Time).

I’m trying to make this presentation as accessible as possible. Don’t worry though, there will definitely be time at the end of the webinar for questions. If you can’t make the webinar, a recording will be available within the following few days.

  1. That’s lovely, thank you Shaun. This is one area I’m very curious about but have a hard time understanding, really looking forward to it.

  2. Thanks for that, Shaun. Will the recording be available free, also ? Because here in Germany, the webinar is around 5 am on Sunday morning….

    • naturally :) unless otherwise noted (though i don’t think it’s ever happened), anything that is hosted by Designing Sound is free.

  3. Thanks, looking forward to this!

  4. Have you guys tried to invite middleware professionals from Audiokinetic, Fmod etc.?

    • not for this particular presentation, no. this is just to help people understand the different standards/specifications that are out there and how they are related.
