Recommendations for Spot Check Loudness Measurements

As part of managing the relative audio loudness of content, this document provides recommendations for measuring content carried in a single programming channel of a program network for 24-hours with an audio loudness meter consistent with the measurement techniques discussed in A/85 as well as recording the measured loudness and loudness metadata value. The document also recommends some approaches for interpretation of the measurement data and for actions to be taken.
