Convert MPEG to AIFF
MPEG to AIFF Converter converts MPEG files to
AIFF. The converter focuses on AIFF file that supports almost all codecs
in AIFF specification, for example, pcm 8-bit, pcm 16-bit, pcm 24-bit, pcm 32-bit,
pcm 32-bit float, pcm 64-bit float, a-Law, mu-Law, IEEE 754 float, ima4, gsm,
dwvw, and so on. The software also supports common file format such as MPA, AAC, MMF, M4R (iPhone ringtone), AMR, VOC, OGG, MP2,
etc. It could convert ADTS to OGG, OGG to M4A (MPEG-4 audio), FLAC to AU, MP4 to AC3, MP4 to M4R (iPhone ringtone), WMV to AAC, and so on.
The software is very easy to use and supports batch conversion.
It is full compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000.
What is MPEG?
The Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) was formed by the ISO to set standards
for audio and video compression and transmission. Its first meeting was in May
1988 in Ottawa, Canada. As of late 2005, MPEG has grown to include approximately
350 members per meeting from various industries, universities, and research institutions.
MPEG's official designation is ISO/IEC JTC1/SC29 WG11.
The MPEG standards consist of different Parts. Each part covers a certain aspect
of the whole specification. The standards also specify Profiles and Levels. Profiles
are intended to define a set of tools that are available, and Levels define the
range of appropriate values for the properties associated with them. MPEG has
standardized the following compression formats and ancillary standards:
- MPEG-1: The first compression standard for audio and video. It was
basically designed to allow moving pictures and sound to be encoded into the bitrate
of a Compact Disc. To meet the low bit requirement, MPEG-1 downsamples the images,
as well as uses picture rates of only 24-30 Hz, resulting in a moderate quality.
It includes the popular Layer 3 (MP3) audio compression format.
- MPEG-2: Transport, video and audio standards for broadcast-quality
television. MPEG-2 standard was considerably broader in scope and of wider appeal
- supporting interlacing and high definition. MPEG-2 is considered important
because it has been chosen as the compression scheme for over-the-air digital
television ATSC, DVB and ISDB, digital satellite TV services like Dish Network,
digital cable television signals, SVCD, and DVD.
- MPEG-3: Developments in standardizing scalable and multi-resolution
compression which would have become MPEG-3 were ready by the time MPEG-2 was to
be standardized; hence, these were incorporated into MPEG-2 and as a result there
is no MPEG-3 standard. MPEG-3 is not to be confused with MP3, which is MPEG-1
Audio Layer 3.
- MPEG-4: MPEG-4 uses further coding tools with additional complexity
to achieve higher compression factors than MPEG-2. In addition to more efficient
coding of video, MPEG-4 moves closer to computer graphics applications. In more
complex profiles, the MPEG-4 decoder effectively becomes a rendering processor
and the compressed bitstream describes three-dimensional shapes and surface texture.
MPEG-4 also provides Intellectual Property Management and Protection (IPMP) which
provides the facility to use proprietary technologies to manage and protect content
like digital rights management. Several new higher-efficiency video standards
(newer than MPEG-2 Video) are included (an alternative to MPEG-2 Video), notably:
- MPEG-4 Part 2 (or Simple and Advanced Simple Profile) and
- MPEG-4 AVC (or MPEG-4 Part 10 or H.264). MPEG-4 AVC may be used on
HD DVD and Blu-ray discs, along with VC-1 and MPEG-2.
In addition, the following standards, while not sequential advances to the
video encoding standard as with MPEG-1 through MPEG-4, are referred to by similar
- MPEG-7: A multimedia content description standard.
- MPEG-21: MPEG describes this standard as a multimedia framework.
Moreover, relatively more recently than other standards above, MPEG has started
following international standards; each of the standards holds multiple MPEG technologies
for a way of application. For example, MPEG-A includes a number of technologies
on multimedia application format.
- MPEG-A: Multimedia application format.
- MPEG-B: MPEG systems technologies.
- MPEG-C: MPEG video technologies.
- MPEG-D: MPEG audio technologies.
- MPEG-E: Multimedia Middleware.
What is AIFF?
Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF) is an audio file format standard used for
storing sound data for personal computers and other electronic audio devices.
The format was co-developed by Apple Computer in 1988 based on Electronic Arts'
Interchange File Format (IFF, widely used on Amiga systems) and is most commonly
used on Apple Macintosh computer systems. AIFF is also used by Silicon Graphics
Incorporated. The audio data in a standard AIFF file is uncompressed big-endian
pulse-code modulation (PCM). There is also a compressed variant of AIFF known
as AIFF-C or AIFC, with various defined compression codecs.
Standard AIFF is a leading format (along with SDII and WAV) used by professional-level
audio and video applications, and unlike the better-known lossy MP3 format, it
is non-compressed (which aids rapid streaming of multiple audio files from disk
to the application), and lossless. Like any non-compressed, lossless format, it
uses much more disk space than MP3¡ªabout 10MB for one minute of stereo
audio at a sample rate of 44.1 kHz and a sample size of 16 bits. In addition to
audio data, AIFF can include loop point data and the musical note of a sample,
for use by hardware samplers and musical applications.
The file extension for the standard AIFF format is .aiff or .aif. For the compressed
variants it is supposed to be .aifc, but .aiff or .aif are accepted as well by
audio applications supporting the format.
