NOA’s Peter Kuhnle to Present Paper at ARSC 2018
Kuhnle Will discuss the use of AD Converters in audio preservation
Vienna, Austria— April 5th, 2018
AV digitizing and archiving specialist NOA GmbH’s CTO and Managing Partner, Peter Kuhnle, will present a paper at the 52nd annual Association for Recorded Sound Collections conference, which will be held from May 9-12 in Baltimore, Maryland.
Entitled “Requirements for AD Converters in Audio Preservation,” the presentation will highlight recent developments in the field of AD converters specifically used for the purpose of legacy audio preservation.
During his speech, which is scheduled for 4:00– 5:30 pm on Friday, May 11, Kuhnle will discuss ways in which to overcome the technological challenges that arise when implementing A/D converters for the digitization of content and conservation through the use of best practice and appropriate tools.
He will focus on the well-known issue of data corruption -commonly known as “interstitial errors”- that sometimes occurs during the transfer of samples between the A/D converter and the file written on the workstation, as well as on alternative trends in audio digitization and preservation including the employment of highly customizable audio capturing frontends.
The ARSC conference will take place at the Radisson Baltimore Downtown-Inner Harbor, situated near Baltimore’s historic seaport.
In addition to preservation of sound recordings, other topics in focus during the ARSC event include access to recordings, audio conservation and restoration, history and technology, archival practices, as well as copyright and other intellectual property issues.
