T8 - National Recording Preservation Plan: Audio System Performance TestingPresenters:

Rob Friederich, Library of Congress
Recommendation 2.4 from the Library of Congress National Recording Preservation Plan published this year states that we need improved tools and metrics for system performance testing. This session will discuss work coming out of the Federal Agencies Digitization Guidelines Initiative on performance testing of audio digitization systems tasked with preservation and archiving. Specifically this session will discuss the issues of Interstitial Errors, a term used to describe momentary artifacts caused by failure in a DAW’s writing of data to a storage medium, and Analog-to-Digital Converter performance testing. The latter of these was just accepted as a formal standards project by SC-02-01 at the last AES and addresses both development of a test method and performance criteria for converters used in preservation systems.
