In recent history Audio Forensics has been primarily the practice of audio enhancement, analog audio authenticity, and speaker identification. Due to the transition to “all things digital,” new areas of audio forensics are necessarily emerging. Some of these include digital media authenticity, audio for digital video, dealing with compressed audio files such as cell phones, portable recorders and messaging machines. Other new topics include the possible use of the variation of the electric network frequency and audio ballistics analysis. Dealing with the new technologies requires an additional knowledge base, some of which will be presented in this workshop.
