AES3-Am5-2008: Amendment 5 to AES standard for digital audio - Digital input-output interfacing - Serial transmission format for two-channel linearly represented digital audio data
Printing Date: 2008-04-19
Publication History: Pub: 2008
Abstract: Recent projects to support carriage of MPEG Surround data in an AES3 bitstream (see AES55-2007), as well as questions arising when considering non-PCM data in an AES3 signal, require some detailed changes to the AES3 specification. This amendment adds a flag to indicate hidden data within a PCM signal, provides indications for two additional sampling frequencies, and clarifies the use of certain status bits when the signal is non-PCM.
