The workshop leads through the problem of transfer, digitization, and restoration of historical obsolete disc formats. Starting with the possibilities, advantages, and limitations of a conventional mechanical transfer, the discussion will outline some of the most proven and tested optical transfer methods and technologies and their special usability with broken/ delaminated/ damaged discs. The different approaches will be presented, including various audio examples.
This session is presented in association with the AES Technical Committee on Archiving, Restoration, and Digital Libraries
