AES43-R: Review of AES43-2000: AES standard for forensic audio - Criteria for the authentication of analog audio tape recordings.
Project scope: This standard specifies the minimum procedure for the authentication of analog audio tape recordings intended to be offered as evidence or otherwise utilized in civil, criminal, or other fact finding proceedings. It does not specify or restrict additional testing procedures that can be used.
Assigned to: SC-03-12-CFor the authentication of analog tapes a number of methodologies are available. D. Begault expressed that this document only covers the method using magnetic development. In the revision of the document this should be taken into account. There was a general agreement on this. Concerning the standardization of other methods and media - including digital recordings � it was underlined that this should be done on the basis of research, and peer reviewed papers. It was concluded that a part of the revision of this document would be a clarification, changing the title to: AES standard for forensic audio - Criteria for the authentication of analog audio tape recordings using the method of magnetic development.
