Semantic Audio Production Tools for Radio

BBC Radio Production Tools

Audio editing is performed at scale in the production of radio, but often the tools used are poorly targeted towards the task at hand. There are a number of audio analysis techniques that have the potential to aid radio producers, but without a detailed understanding of their process and requirements, it can be difficult to apply these methods. To aid this understanding, a study of radio production practice was conducted on three varied case studies – a news bulletin, drama and documentary. It examined the audio/metadata workflow, the roles and motivations of the producers and environmental factors.
