What does GLITS mean?
- GLITS is an acronym for Graham's Line Identification Tone System, a test signal for stereo systems devised by BBC TV Sound Supervisor and Fellow of the IBS Graham Haines in the mid 1980s. It comprises a 1 kHz tone at 0 dBu on both channels, with interruptions which identify the channels. This arrangement has an advantage over the EBU stereo ident tone in that each channel is explicitly identified as belonging to a stereo pair. The EBU Technical Document Multichannel Audio Line-up Tone defines stereo lineup tone as having an interruption in the left channel only, lasting 250 ms every 3 s.
