AES Technical Committee
Archiving Restoration and Digital Libraries
Chair: David Ackerman (Send Email) Chair: Nadja Wallaszkovits (Send Email) Forum: Committee Discussion Forum
Audio preservation work draws on a wide range of skills and understanding including proper reproduction of legacy recorded sound formats, digital and analog audio recording, digital editing, systems testing for quality control, and technical and administrative metadata. The committee seeks to be a resource to the AES membership by disseminating information about these and other topics related to the archiving and preservation of audio carriers and the information, sometimes referred to as 'essence', therein contained.
The committee recognizes that audio preservation is not necessarily an 'end of life' process for audio objects but rather is a set of principles and procedures that can be applied from the time of creation for any given audio object. This is immediately relevant in a world of "born digital" audio. The committee is therefore interested in providing educational meetings and publications which we hope will benefit AES members involved in diverse segments of the audio industry.
These documents do not necessarily express the official position of the AES on the issues discussed at these meetings, and only represent the views of committee members participating in the discussion. Any unauthorized use of these publications is prohibited.

2008-9-25 2007 Report on the State of Archiving, Restoration and Digital Libraries
Description: This document was originally drafted as part of the AES routine reporting effort from the Technical Committees, known as "EMERGING TECHNOLOGY TRENDS IN THE AREAS OF THE TECHNICAL COMMITTEES OF THE AUDIO ENGINEERING SOCIETY". These reports are collected by AES and published in the journal. Due to physical space limitations in the journal this original report was reduced to just one section in the November 2007 issue. Posted here is the report in full.
