Many people have their preferences for a certain type of storage medium but without unanimous scientific/technical reasoning. The AES Technical Committee on Audio Recording and Storage Systems (TC-ARSS) has also identified the need to discuss various audio data storage media. This workshop tries to bring together experts on different storage media, such that a discussion of the pro’s and con’s of different media can be started that has roots in real science. In addition, the user perspective will be detailed by an end-user panelist. Areas of discussion and storage media will include: digital tape; optical disk; hard disk; distributed network/local storage; end-users for both recording and archiving; views on the future.
