The agenda as well as the report from the previous meeting, held in San Francisco 2006-10-06, were approved as distributed.
AES-X064 Test methods and materials for archival mechanical media
The test records are now produced and for sale from the AES publication site. The working group thanked S. Davies and M. Yonge for their considerable input to the project.
There is still some work to be done, namely approving of the text, "Calibrating signals and test records" by G. Brock-Nannestad, posted to the group document site as x64-gbn-notes-030320.doc. Comments on the draft should be made by 2007-05-20, Brock-Nannestad will finalise the document with addition of correction tables provided by Davies. These will be made by comparing the output of the original pressing, either the Abbey Road copy or the British Library Sound Archive copy, with the new pressing. The missing documentation formatted as a report needs to be up on the web by 1 June.
The next meeting will scheduled to take place in New York, 2007-10.
