Technology - Audio-Visual Coding 1 - MPEG 1 and MP3

Synopsis

We discuss MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 audio compression (coding) and major non-MPEG audio coding systems including Real Audio, Windows Media and Vorbis. A detailed explanation of the internal mechanism of MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer III) compression serves as a basis for understanding MP3pro and all other perceptual audio codecs, including Advanced Audio Coding (AAC).
