The event informed UK Screen Association members, Heads of Audio, Chief Engineers, Dubbing Mixers and audio professionals of the Digital Production Partnership’s (DPP) objectives in the implementation of loudness specification EBU R128. There was a debate about the technical and creative implications of the ruling and the DPP took the opportunity to determine the M delegates’ readiness to embrace the latest EBU standard in a bid to establish an implementation date. RTW had its TM9 and TM3 touch screen audio meters on hand for delegates to see how combining traditional moving coil PPMs with the new R128 metering, eases the transition to the new standard. Both devices deliver loudness measurement, LRA loudness range and True Peak as specified by EBU R128.
