What is AIFC?
AIFC stands for Compressed Audio Interchange File. Compressed .AIFF audio file that contains CD-quality audio; similar to a .WAV file, but uses audio compression to reduce file size; may incorporate ULAW, ALAW, or G722 compression; commonly referred to as an AIFF-C file.

AIFF-C is being defined because AIFF does not allow for compressed audio data. AIFF-C adds the ability to store compressed audio data in a standard manner. Naturally, AIFF-C also allows the storage of uncompressed audio data. The "C" in AIFF-C signifies its extension to handle compressed audio data.

The differences between the original AIFF and AIFF-C were kept to a minimum. Applications which currently support AIFF should be easily upgradable to AIFF-C.

The following changes have been made from AIFF:

  • The FORM identifier was changed from 'AIFF' to 'AIFC'. This distinguishes AIFF-C files from AIFF files. Existing AIFF programs, until they are upgraded, will simply ignore AIFF-C files.
  • The Common Chunk has been extended to include a compression type ID and a compression type name. AIFF-C is thus capable of storing compressed audio data generated from any compression algorithms.
  • The Sound Data Chunk can contain compressed audio data. The Chunk format has not been modified.
  • The Sound Accelerator (Saxel) Chunk is new. It is designed to eliminate initial artifacts caused by the de-compression algorithms when playback begins at a random point defined by a Marker.
  • The Format Version Chunk is new. This Chunk is designed to provide a smooth transition for potential future upgrades to the AIFF-C specification.

What is AAC?
Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) is a standardized, lossy compression and encoding scheme for digital audio. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves better sound quality than MP3 at many bit rates.

AAC has been standardized by ISO and IEC, as part of the MPEG-2 & MPEG-4 specifications. The MPEG-2 standard contains several audio coding methods, including the MP3 coding scheme. AAC is able to include 48 full-bandwidth (up to 96 kHz) audio channels in one stream plus 15 low frequency enhancement (LFE, limited to 120 Hz) channels and up to 15 data streams. AAC is able to achieve indistinguishable audio quality at data rates of 320 kbit/s (64kbit/s/channel) for five channels. The quality is close to CD also at 96 kbit/s (48kbit/s/channel) for stereo.

AAC's best known use is as the default audio format of Apple's iPhone, iPod, iTunes, and the format used for all iTunes Store audio (with extensions for proprietary digital rights management).

AAC is also the standard audio format for Sony's PlayStation 3 and is supported by Sony's Playstation Portable, latest generation of Sony Walkman, Sony Ericsson Walkman Phone, Nintendo's Wii (with the Photo Channel 1.1 update installed for Wii consoles purchased before late 2007) and the MPEG-4 video standard. HE-AAC is part of digital radio standards like DAB+ and Digital Radio Mondiale.
