Using Images to Reconstruct Sound Recordings: Progress and Prospects
Dr. Carl Haber
Senior Scientist, Physics Division
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory at the University of California
May 16, 2005
About the Lecture:
The basis of image processing as a method to recover sound from mechanical carriers will be reviewed. Recent progress using two and three dimensional imaging methods, in collaboration with the Library of Congress, will be discussed. Recently the I.R.E.N.E. project (Image, Reconstruct, Erase Noise, Etc.) was approved by NEH and will lead to the construction of an optical scanning machine for the Library of Congress. The design, testing, and performance expectations for this machine will be described.
