Abstract

A new IEC standard on audio quality measurement of personal computers (PCs) was published in December 2005, entitled IEC 61606-4 "Audio and audiovisual equipment - Digital audio parts - Basic measurement methods of audio characteristics - Part 4: Personal computer." That standard prescribes methods for measuring PC audio quality, taking into account the requirements of measuring conditions of PCs. Furthermore, a new measure of audio signal quality, short-term distortion, was introduced to describe PC-specific noise problems. This paper presents an outline of that standard.
