Sounds that travel within a solid medium have orders of magnitude higher ampltiude than those traveling through air, if you pick them up with a microphone directly in contact with the said solid. If you hit the stand holding a mic it will peak like crazy, never in a million years would it produce a false positive. Every bounce of the ball will produce a spike and that's about it, you simply observe if there's a spike at the moment when the ball passes the edge, that simple. Hawkeye's error is due to the camera resolution being limited and visual recognition techniques having statistical nature, none of that is present when you're dealing with sound.
      If the ball hits the side vs the top of the table, is there a distinction in the sound values as well?

      no, that case can not be dealt with using that technique. However, the "does it bounce upwards or sideways?" technique does the job just fine. Most of the controversial incidents, like a couple from the recent women's World Cup final, are regular edge balls where no one can tell if it touched the table at all.

      Come to think of it, why get technical at all when we all have real world experience with edge balls. Whenever there's a real thin one you always hear it more than see it, don't you?

      oh i see, that makes sense.
