Fueled both by the availability of high capacity media (e.g., DVD-Audio, Blu-ray Disk, HD-DVD) and by the desire for high-definition audio offering maximum quality, lossless audio coding technology has found its way into the market, thus complementing the plethora of perceptual coding schemes. Moreover, the well-known ISO/MPEG audio standardization group has recently finalized work on a set of lossless audio coding technology that addresses a broad range of application scenarios.
This workshop provides a comprehensive overview of standardized and most relevant proprietary lossless audio formats, including the illustration of underlying technologies and a discussion of existing and envisaged applications.
