Producing Audio Drama Content for an Array of Orchestrated Personal Devices

Personal devices with loudspeakers can be orchestrated to increase immersion from low channel count reproduction systems. A trial production was conducted to investigate the content creation work?ow and delivery mechanism for orchestrated devices. The content (a 13-minute science-?ction drama entitled “The Vostok-K Incident”) included: a stereo bed; elements only replayed from auxiliary devices; and elements that could either be in the stereo bed or replayed from auxiliary devices. A bespoke production environment was established, including plug-ins for authoring the metadata needed to utilize the rendering ruleset. Ambiguity in the reproduction system, coupled with ?exible and complex metadata authoring requirements, made the production challenging and time-consuming. Future work will focus on re?ning the production process and developing delivery tools.
