Description

Audio Metering: Measures, Measurements, Standards, and Practice addresses the complex concepts associated with audio metering, therefore giving you the knowledge, understanding and skills necessary to utilize optional signal levels and to produce high quality audio.

The third edition addresses changes to loudness standards, the new production formats, new standards regarding cinema sound, and much more. Containing valuable information that can be applied to a wide variety of everyday tasks, this handbook is essential reading for all audio technicians and engineers.

 

  • There have been changes to industry-standard software, therefore all audio technicians and engineers will benefit from the updated measurement techniques – electrical and acoustical, analog and digital - described within this third edition.
  • Addresses changes to loudness standards, the new production formats (Dolby Atmos and Auro3D), and new standards regarding mobile devices.
  • Addresses the complex concepts associated with audio metering, therefore giving you the knowledge and skills necessary to utilize optional signal levels and to produce high quality audio.
  • Provides easy to comprehend explanations to all the topics you always wanted to understand.
