What is elokutio?
elokutio™ is a next-generation audio description (AD) services portfolio that leverage leading-edge technologies across each step of the production.
The 2 steps of AD production:
AD script writing
Proprietary software & algorithms, combined with best practices that empower us to:
focus on the creative aspects of our work
obtain immediate feedback from AI-derived tools
collaborate with colleagues throughout the process, thus ensuring scripts' uniformity and quality
leverage already existing AD to swiftly and efficiently produce translations in other languages
The result is exceptional AD scripts with accurate and engaging narration.
AD audio rendering
Next-generation synthetic voice and digital audio workstations (DAW) allow us to:
produce professional audio tracks within minutes, instead of days
easily adapt AD to the preferred accent and pronunciation of different markets (ex. Portugal and Brazil)
produce AD for a given title in several languages at once, allowing for timely release across continental or world markets
Our final stereo AD mix meets strict ATSC_A85AII broadcast standards, with AD narration perfectly synchronized with original dialogue and audio content.
How does elokutio stand out?
The core of our AD production pipeline was developed by CRIM, an applied research institute. Five person-years of R&D went into its development, in collaboration with several university faculties. The process and output were validated by key Canadian agencies, such as Institut Nazareth & Louis-Braille (INLB), the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB), as well as the Regroupement des aveugles et amblyopes du Québec (RAAM).
Through innovation, we achieve 30 to 50% productivity gains, we maintain our stringent quality levels, and focus on creativity.
By design, our tools and services support multiple languages, opening the door to significant economies of scope and providing you with international reach.
About our AD editorial line
Inspired by industry best practices, our editorial line is based on deep respect for the authenticity of the original media, with heightened attention to the pace and tone of each project and linguistic richness of the narration.
