*About this event*

ADCTest is a free Windows-based open source software application that tests
and reports on audio analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) in accordance
with FADGI established low cost test and performance methods (
http://www.digitizationguidelines.gov/audio-visual/documents/ADC_Low_Cost_performGuide_2017-09-30.pdf).
The app was designed for everyone from archivists to audio engineers,
generating its own test signals and providing users with simple pass/fail
reporting along with more detailed results for advanced users. ADCTest
comes preloaded with FADGI guidelines and parameters but is also
customizable to meet the needs of specific institutional standards for ADC
performance. The 2021 version of ADCTest includes a stand-alone signal
generator to better support outsourced digitization through the use of a
stimulus file.



*Topic To Be Covered*

In one hour, the panelists will address the value of consistent testing
protocols for digitization equipment, an overview of FADGI’s Low Cost ADC
Performance Testing Guidelines and a demo of the updated ADCTest
application now with a built-in signal generator which is especially
helpful for outsourced audio digitization. This will be followed by Q&A.
All the products discussed by Panelists are available at no cost and with
defined open licenses.



To submit topics and questions for the panelists in advance, please email
