Southampton Solent University

6pm (refreshments) for 6:30 start

Next Generation Audio is beginning to take shape in the world of broadcasting, with various products and formats making their way into the market. As with any new technology there are risks around lack of interoperability if practical standards are not adopted.

The Audio Definition Model (ADM) is one such standard that will allow audio metadata to be used consistently and by any product, from production through to emission coding. The ADM can be used to describe object-based audio, scene-based audio and channel-based audio. ADM metadata can be carried in BW64 audio files, and the Serial-ADM can be used in streaming applications. This talk will describe why we need the ADM, how it can be used, and what it contains.

About the presenter:

Dave Marston joined BBC R&D in 2000, initially working on DAB and then moving on to audio coding research and testing. Among the many areas of audio research Dave has been involved in, subjective testing has been an important area. He has been involved in EBU projects over several years, and was chairman of the FAR-BWF group (improving the BWAV file format). Another area of his expertise is semantic audio, including managing of the M4 (Making Musical Mood Metadata) collaborative project.

Over recent years Dave has been involved in the development of the Audio Definition Model (ADM), a metadata model used to describe future audio formats. He has developed the ADM from the initial concept and has turned into an international standard that is now being adopted across the audio industry. He was has also been involved in two recent EU-funded projects: ICoSOLE (leading the BBC work) and ORPHEUS.
