A joint cooperation with the Fondazione Arena di Verona is proposed through the scientific support of Eye-Tech, to establish a HW/SW platform aiming at:
the audio documents stored in the Vicentini archive in Verona. The AES and IASA international protocols for preservation will be customized to the needs of this archive, and audio restoration will be implemented through a software combining state-of-the-art de-noise algorithms with novel audio processing techniques. This software will be validated over a selected set of audio documents, meanwhile representative of the characteristics and preservation state of the entire
archive. In parallel, a uniform representation of the contextual information will be defined together with a database design for the storing and managing of the metadata coming along with these documents. The project outcome will be inherited by the archive for restoration and exploitation programmes beyond this project.
