Early Edison cylinders imaged at NEDCC's IRENE Lab

NEDCC recently had very special visitors to the IRENE Lab: Jerry
Fabris, Museum Curator at the Thomas Edison National Historical Park
and David Giovannoni, founder of First Sounds, a collaboration of
experts dedicated to recovering audio from the world's earliest
sound recordings.

But the most distinguished visitors to the lab that day were some of
the earliest examples of recorded sound.  Jerry Fabris brought a few
of the Edison Park's most historically significant recordings to
NEDCC to be transferred using the IRENE optical approach. The Edison
cylinders are part of the pilot phase of the Center's IMLS funded
project to bring the IRENE technology to cultural institutions
across the U.S. as a new service soon to be available at NEDCC.
Project inquiries are now being accepted.
