A/52:2012: Digital Audio Compression (AC-3) (E-AC-3) Standard - 12/17/2012 PDF Print E-mail

17 December 2012, Download PDF File
This document specifies coded representation of audio information and the decoding process, as well as information on the encoding process. The coded representation specified is suitable for use in digital audio transmission and storage applications, and may convey from 1 to 5 full bandwidth audio channels, along with a low-frequency enhancement channel. A wide range of encoded bit-rates is supported by this specification. Typical applications of digital audio compression are in satellite or terrestrial audio broadcasting, delivery of audio over metallic or optical cables, or storage of audio on magnetic, optical, semiconductor, or other storage media. Revision B added a new annex, “Enhanced AC-3 Bit Stream Syntax” which specifies an additional syntax that offers additional coding tools and features.
