Cooperative Spatial Audio Authoring: Systems Approach and Analysis of Use Cases
Today's audio production process is highly parallel and segregated. This is especially the case in the field of audio post production for motion pictures. The introduction of spatial audio systems like 5.1, 22.2 or Wave Field Synthesis results in even more production steps, namely the spatial authoring, to accomplish a rich experience for the audience. This paper proposes a system, which enables the audio engineers to work together on the same project. The proposed system is planned to be implemented for an existing spatial authoring software but can be utilized by any other application, which organizes its data in a tree structured way. Three major use cases, i.e. Single User, Work Space and Work Group, are introduced and analysed.
