AUDIO ARCHIVING, RESTORATION, AND PRESERVATION - Past, Present, and Future
On Tuesday, September 25th, at the SAE Institute in Hollywood, the Audio Engineering Society, Los Angeles Section will host a presentation on audio archiving, restoration, and preservation.
Audio recording and reproduction has gone through a myriad of formats in its relatively short history (1877-2018, a mere 141 years!). From wax cylinders to high resolution digital formats and everything in between, recorded audio must be archived, restored, and/or preserved if it is to be reproduced in the future.
Our group of experts run from vintage format and long-time tape restorationists to recent UCLA graduates in the audio archiving library sciences.
What should engineers and producers be doing to ensure their recordings will be listenable 20 years from now and beyond?
