Part 1-1: DVD disk and data migration for long term audio data storage
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

INTRODUCTION

Sound recordings such as music, speech, and storytelling are an important human heritage

and should be preserved for as long as possible. However, we were not able to record sounds

in order to preserve them in the past. The first recoding was achieved by Edison in 1877.

Although various technologies were invented later, most of them have limitations for audio

archives because storage life time is limited and the sound quality deteriorates when it is

transferred to the next generation storage device.

The progress of LSI technology made digital recording of recorded sound possible. The digital

recording is very suitable for audio archiving because the migration is performed by copying

digital data.

For this purpose various recording materials exist, such as optical disks, magnetic disks,

magnetic tape and nonvolatile memory such as a phase change memory.

This International Standard specifies physical and logical aspects for a standard of audio

archives of various storage types which are typically used for audio archives in markets.

The IEC 62702 series currently consists of:

Part 1 specifies the minimum requirements on physical aspects of optical disks for digital

sound recordings. Part 1-1 specifies DVD optical disks, and Part 1-2 specifies BD optical

disks.

Part 2 specifies the minimum requirements for digitization of content, format of digitised

content, content information and media inspection.

Note 1 to entry: Refer ISO/IEC 16963.
4 Disk and lifetime for long term audio data storage
4.1 Disk for long term audio data storage

A disk with a specified lifetime should be used for long-term audio data storage. A disk with

an unspecified lifetime should not be used.
4.2 Lifetime estimation

For the purposes of this standard, the lifetime of a disk shall be derived from the

measurements specified in ISO/IEC 16963. The Eyring method is used for lifetime estimation

under Controlled storage conditions (25 °C /50 %RH).

In ISO/IEC 16963, the estimated lifetime can be defined variously as B Life, B Life and the

50 5
95 % lower confidence bound of B Life (= (B Life) ) and described as follows.
5 5 L
exp (lnB )
B Life =
ˆ ˆ ˆ
= exp (β +β x +β x ),
0 1 10 2 20
exp (lnB )
B Life =
ˆ ˆ ˆ
= exp (β +β x +β x − 1,64σ ),
0 1 10 2 20
where, {x , x } denotes the Controlled storage-condition (25 °C and 50 % RH).
10 20
Also, the 95 % lower confidence bound of B Life becomes
(B Life) ≅ exp(lnB −1,64σ ) .
5 L
ˆ ˆ ˆ

β ,β , β and estimated variance of residual errors σ are obtained using regression

0 2 2
analysis of time-to-failure data.
4.3 B Life for long-term audio data storage
mig

The estimated lifetime of B Life means 5 % of the products reach failure. It is widely used in

other contexts. However, from the viewpoint of the reliability of long-term audio storage to

---------------------- Page: 15 ----------------------
SIST EN 62702-1-1:2016
– 10 – IEC 62702-1-1:2016  IEC 2016

retain the integrity of the original data, it is not appropriate to use B Life as the estimated

lifetime when determining a test interval and deciding on data migration.

In the case of audio data migration, it is necessary to have a sufficiently low failure probability.

The time at which one millionth of the products reach failure shall define the estimated lifetime

in this standard to determine test intervals and migration interval. B Life is 0,000 001

0,000 1

quantile of the lifetime distribution (i.e. 0,000 1% failure time) and expressed as B Life in

mig

this standard. B Life can be calculated using B Life and B Life as follows (see also

mig 50 5
Annex E in ISO/IEC 29121:2013)
ˆ ˆ
 
lnB − lnB
ˆ ˆ 50 5
ˆ  
B Life=exp(lnB −4,75σ)=exp lnB −4,75
0,000 1 50 50
 
1,64
 
ˆ ˆ
= exp(2,9 lnB −1,9 lnB )
5 50
Thus
ˆ ˆ
B Life= B Life= exp(2,9 lnB − 1,9 lnB )
mig 0,000 1 5 50

In actual storage conditions, the temperature and relative humidity may deviate from the

Controlled storage-condition of 25 °C/50 % RH, which changes the estimated lifetime. In this

case, the estimated lifetime should be adjusted according to the estimated lifetime at the

actual storage conditions (see Annex D in ISO/IEC 29121:2013).
4.4 Estimated-lifetime rank and display colour
4.4.1 Estimated-lifetime rank and display colour identification

For audio data migration, rank of B Life and its identifying display colour are defined as

mig
follows.
B Life is over 30 years, the display colour is red.
mig
B Life is over 60 years, the display colour is green.
mig
B Life is over 100 years, the display colour is gold.
mig

Guideline for use of the ranks of B Life and their display colours are shown in Annex A.

mig
4.4.2 B Life and display colour indication on disks and packages
mig

The rank of B Life, its display colour and the reference Controlled storage-condition shall

mig

be indicated both on disk and package, excluding a two sided disk. Indication examples for

ranks and their colours are shown in Annex A.
5 Test condition, test methods and disks for audio data migration
5.1 Ambient conditions for testing

When performing recordings or playbacks, the air immediately surrounding the disk should

have the following properties:
Recording condition
20 °C to 45 °C
Playback condition
20 °C to 45 °C

5.2 Test methods
5.2.1 Playback test drive
The playback speed of the test drive should be:
4 × CLV (constant linear velocity),
for DVD-R, DVD-RW, +R format and +RW format disks
or 6 × CLV
for DVD-RAM disk 2 × CAV (constant angular velo-
city), 3 × CAV, or 5 × CAV
5.2.2 Test area of recorded disk
The whole recorded data area should be tested.

In case of a DVD-RAM disk, the replaced data in the defect management area, instead of the

defect data in the user area, should be tested.
5.2.3 Recording test drive
The recording speed of the test drive should be:
4 × CLV or 6 × CLV
For DVD-R, DVD-RW, +R format and +RW format
disks
For a DVD-RAM disk 2 × CAV, 3 × CAV or 5 × CAV

The test drive should implement the multi-session and multi-border method for recordable

disks and the DVD-RW rewritable disk. Archive data shall be recorded in the first session or

border. The history information can be recorded on the second or subsequent session or

border.

The test drive should implement the incremental write method for the DVD-RAM and +RW

format rewritable disks. Data can be written to the formatted disk by simply recording files.

The history information can be recorded on the disk as additional file record.
5.3 Test drive calibration

The playback and recording test drive(s) shall be calibrated by using a calibration disk

prepared by the test drive manufacturer and using the calibration procedure specified by the

manufacturer. The calibration shall be done at the intervals recommended by the
manufacturer.
6 Test result evaluation
6.1 Initial performance test result evaluation

When data are recorded on disks, the initial recording performance on the whole recorded

area shall be checked. The initial recording performance shall be categorized as Level 1, 2

and 3 using PIE SUM 8 max for DVD-R, DVD-RW, +R, and +RW disks, and BER max for
DVD-RAM as shown in Table 1.

At least, the initial recording performance shall be within Level 1. Disks showing the initial

recording performance of Level 2 should not be used for long-term audio data storage, and

those of Level 3 are out of the specification and shall not be used.

If the initial recording performance is worse than Level 1, the performance of the drive used

for recording the data should be verified because PIE SUM 8 max and BER max depend on

the performance of both disks and drives. If the drive is not good, the drive should be

replaced. If the disk is not good, another batch of disks should be use
