The Call for Comment on DRAFT REVISED AES5-xxxx - "AES recommended practice for professional digital audio — Preferred sampling frequencies for applications employing pulse-code modulation" was published 2018-09-19.
This standard covers the use of certain preferred sampling frequencies in applications employing pulse-code modulation where there is a need for interchange of high-fidelity digital audio programs with a minimum of transcoding complexity. Examples of applications where such interchange may occur include, but are not limited to, master tape recordings (audio alone, and audio with video), submaster tape recordings prepared for transfer to a consumer product format, studio signal processing, and the point-to-point transmission of broadcast signals over satellite or terrestrial networks.
This standard is not concerned with sampling frequencies for narrow-band audio applications, such as voice-quality transmission links, or with processing devices in which both the input and the output signals are in an analog format, even if such signals are ultimately used for interchange of program.
