New project to specify the criteria for the authentication of digital audio recordings
The AES SC-03-12 Working Group on Forensic Audio, chaired by Marisa Dery, has started a new project to specify the criteria for the authentication of digital audio recordings.
The X259 project will formulate a standard scientific procedure for the authentication of digital audio recordings intended to be offered as evidence or otherwise utilized in civil, criminal, or other fact finding proceedings.
AES has produced AES43 which sets procedures for authentication of analog audio recordings but the norm for current cases has been to use digital media. With cell phones, ring cameras and other recording devices becoming the standard for recording audio it is imperative to produce a similar document for digital recordings.
The Working Group is soliciting input and participation by all interested parties. If you would like to participate, sign up using the link below.
