The Realisation and Exploitation of a Random Access Digital Audio Editor for Broadcast Use

While digital audio techniques offer many advantages over their analog counterparts, the difficulty of editing digital recordings has detracted from the widespread adoption of this technology in broadcasting. The BBC has continued its research in this field with the development of a disc-based digital audio editor to assess the capabilities of this type of equipment in a broadcast environment. This equipment became operational in September, 1987, and has since been used for a wide variety of programs with differing requirements. This paper describes some of the editing techniques implemented and the advantages and disadvantages of disc-based editing which have become apparent under operational conditions.
