AUDIO DEVICES, FORMATS AND CODECS

  1. 1. STEFFI MEDINA AND KEVIN LOPES
  2. 2. Introduction INDEX Audio devices: Microphones Loud speakers Sound card Sound ports headphones Codecs: Loss codecs Lossless codecs Sound formats: wav midi aiff cda mp3 wma aup
  3. 3. INTRODUCTION The aim of this presentation is to examine issues related to the sound (Audio devices, formats and codes), which will serve us later if we want to work with music or sound.
  4. 4. AUDIO DEVICES Microphone: A microphone is an example of a transducer. The sound information exists as patterns of air pressure; the microphone changes this information into patterns of electric current. Loud Speaker: A loud speaker is an electroacoustic transducer that produces sound in response to an electrical audio signal input. Sound card: It is an expansion card or integrated circuit that provides a computer with the ability to produce sounds that can be heard by the user either over speakers or headphones Sound port: A sound port serves as an interface between the device and other peripheral devices. Headphones are a hardware device that either plugs into your computer (line out) or your speakers and allow you to privately listen to audio without disturbing anyone else.
  5. 5. CODECS A codec is a device or computer program capable of encoding or decoding a digital data stream or signal. Depending on its compresion quality we can differentiate two type of codecs lossy codecs and lossless codecs: The loss codecs reduce quality by some amount in order to achieve compression The lossless codecs are used for archiving data in a compressed form while retaining all of the information present in the original stream. Lossy codecs: Lossless codecs:
  6. 6. SOUND FORMATS Sound format also know as audio file format is a flie format for storing digital audio data on a computer system. Among the sound formats, we can differentiate three major groups of audio file format: Uncompressed audio formats:  Formats with lossless compression: Formats with lossy compression: MIDI: (Short for Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a technical standard that describes a protocol, digital interface and connectors. •WAV •AIFF •AUP •WMA(Lossless) •MP3 •WMA(Lossy)
