  • Publication number: 20190215540
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer program products for network-based processing and distribution of multimedia content of a live performance are disclosed. In some implementations, recording devices can be configured to record a multimedia event (e.g., a musical performance). The recording devices can provide the recordings to a server while the event is ongoing. The server automatically synchronizes, mixes and masters the recordings. The server performs the automatic mixing and mastering using reference audio data previously captured during a rehearsal. The server streams the mastered recording to multiple end users through the Internet or other public or private network. The streaming can be live streaming.

  • Publication number: 20180367939
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for an adaptive audio system that renders reflected sound for adaptive audio systems in different ways depending on the orientation of at least one speaker in a set of speakers. A speaker of the system may comprise an integrated speaker having front-firing and upward-firing drivers, a sensor to determine the orientation of the speaker (e.g., horizontal or vertical) and a transceiver and control unit that transmits the orientation to a decoder and receives updated speaker feeds from the renderer based on the orientation.
