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-C (Leader: R. Sanders)In the last meeting it was decided that the title of this document should be changed to reflect the specific methodology applied. Now it was discussed whether the alternative methods like the application of Faraday crystals and mutitrack heads should be included in the same standard or should form separate parts. It was underlined by Robin Caine, that it would be much easier to manage individual documents on each methodology as different parts of on standard. The existing standard could be used as a kind of template for the other specified methodologies. It was agreed that the task group should prepare an outline for three separate documents, the existing standard being the first one.
