In the following video, a hidden commentary is discovered, they think that it's an image in audio form...

How can it be turned into an image?

Hm. It looks like the ARG Wiki guys haven't touched this yet. – Raven Dreamer Apr 22 '11 at 16:24
@Raven Dreamer: Wrong (see answer) – Nick T Apr 22 '11 at 16:29
@Nick - ah. I was going off of the info on the main page, which says "The sound heard when completing the "Final Transmission" achievement has been decoded (by Seikas) and shown to produce this image. Unsure if this is the same exact transmission played with listening to this commentary node in Chapter 3, test chamber 17 (above the chamber in one of Rattmann's hidden rooms)." – Raven Dreamer Apr 22 '11 at 16:30

It's an SSTV signal, which turns into the following images when decoded.

Nice, any idea what is seen on the background in the last picture? I can't make any sense of it. I can't accept your answer yet due to limitations, but I will do it soon... – Tom Wijsman Apr 22 '11 at 16:30
Ah, apparently it looks like a computer, a mouse and a screen... – Tom Wijsman May 18 '11 at 16:36
