This isn’t TV, Crappy Audio is Crappy Audio
The opening paragraph of Kent Gibson’s article rings so true to those of us who are asked to “improve” audio and video in the course of working with e-discovery. In the few short years I’ve worked in Litigation Support, there have already been a number of times where I’m presented with some audio or video tape and asked to “clean it up” in some way, and I don’t have near the tools that a forensic audio engineer!
If only it were true, as the televised CSI seems to promise, that any audio recording could be made intelligible with a little bing from a computer. The realities of forensic audio may surprise you — amazing things are possible, but not all things.
If only I could make all of our attorney’s read the whole thing.
