AES-X064 Test methods and materials for archival mechanical media
S. Davis reported on the progress of the production of the Test Disc Set as it was approved by the Board of Governors last year.
Due to problems with the quality of the vinyl produced by the French production plant the pressing of coarse groove records both in Holland and England is on hold. The vinyl gives rise to a huge amount of non-fills, far more than can be accepted for quality recordings.
The factories work hard to resolve the problem, and as soon as it is solved the Test Disc Set will go into production, hopefully well in time for the next AES Convention in October.
New date 2006-09
The next meeting will be scheduled in conjunction with the AES 121st Convention in San Francisco, CA., US., 2006-10.
