The article focuses on the standards and specifications provided by the sound recording industry in Great Britain. Some of the standards deals on tape machine distortion and signal-to-noise ratio of 72db. In BBC TV Film Departments, it set different standards on 16mm magnetic film while two different standard on ¼" tape. Furthermore, various parameters of the bias drive of record amplifiers was presented.
