Name of the article[edit]

Why is it " often misidentified as Interruptible Foldback" That is a perfectly usable term for IFB. There are many terms that are not correct: Interruptable Frequency Broadcast is one...actually I prefer Foldback over Feedback because you are interrupting the Foldback...not the "Feedback"

I agree. Foldback is an old audio term for the Auxilary outputs of an audio board. Feedback is a problem that many audio pros are very familiar with. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.129.180.2 (talk) 19:04, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

I agree also; Foldback is the correct term for IFB. The term Foldback is borrowed from the stage monitors used for the performers in a live concert. Television just converted it to earpieces (which has also been recently adopted by live performers) and made it interruptible. Feedback is the loud squeal you get when you point a microphone at a speaker. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.30.5.83 (talk) 17:49, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

I, too, have never heard it called anything but foldback (in manuals for Telex PLs, for example), but to my absolute shock, it is indeed called "interrupted feedback" in "Television Production Handbook", 4th Ed, by Herbert Zettl, the undisputed reference in this area. That is (C) 1984, so usage may have changed, but in lieu of a firm citation to a textbook or glossary newer than that, let's lay this to rest for the moment, ok?

Foldback seems to be the term. How long are we staying in feedback? Dulefni (talk) 21:45, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Hi again. Now there is an another IFB page at Wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dulefni (talkcontribs) 00:44, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

I am going to be bold and redirect that last article to this one. Binksternet (talk) 22:06, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Interruptible feedbackInterruptible foldback – Past discussion appears to have achieved consensus for 'foldback' in article name. Foldback refers to the monitoring aspect of IFB, and is more commonly used than feedback. Binksternet (talk) 22:13, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
