Information technology -- Generic coding of moving pictures and associated audio information -- Part 7: Advanced Audio Coding (AAC)

(Not available in French)

This standard has been revised by: ISO/IEC 13818-7:2006


ISO/IEC 13818-7:2004 specifies MPEG-2 Advanced Audio Coding (AAC), a multi-channel audio coding standard that delivers higher quality than is achievable when requiring MPEG-1 backwards compatibility. It provides ITU-R "indistinguishable" quality at a data rate of 320 kbit/s for five full-bandwidth channel audio signals.

In comparison to ISO/IEC 13818-7:2003, ISO/IEC 13818-7:2004 supplements information on how to transmit and obtain MPEG-4 SBR data as part of the MPEG-2 AAC access unit.
