The ability to watch, and more importantly listen, to actors and people on film began in the 1920s, when sound film became extremely popular. Since then digital preservationists have struggled to maintain the quality of audio attached to video files. AEO-Light addresses this problem by preserving audio attached to digitally scanned video and images files. The South Carolina Moving Image Research Collections and the Interdisciplinary Mathematics Institute, both of the University of South Carolina, partnered with the National Endowment for the Humanities to make AEO-Light available to the public as an open source tool.
