🔸 Description Waveform Audio File Format is a Microsoft and IBM audio file format standard for storing an audio bitstream on PCs. It is the main format used on Windows systems for raw and typically uncompressed audio. The usual bitstream encoding is the linear pulse-code modulation (LPCM) format. AC3 is an audio file specifically developed by Dolby Digital to provide surround sound audio. The format is used for audio on many DVDs and Blu-Ray media. For the file to be correctly decoded and output, a DVD player with a Dolby Digital compatible home cinema system is required. It became the de facto standard for surround sound and has held that position since its inception in 1992, with it coming to home cinema in 1995.
🔸 Technical details Though a WAV file can contain compressed audio, the most common WAV audio format is uncompressed in the linear pulse code modulation (LPCM) format. In addition, audio in WAV files can be encoded in various audio coding formats, such as GSM or MP3, to reduce the file size. AC3 allows for separate audio to be defined for each of the six speakers in the classic cinema and home cinema setup. This produces the effect of surround sound on the person listening to the audio file. The six channels consist of right front, center, left front, rear right, rear left, and a subwoofer.
