Explanation of terms
B
Bit rate
This is the amount of audio data recorded on a disc that is read in one
second.
D
Dynamic range
The difference between the maximum, undistorted sound level and the
minimum sound level that is discernible above the noise emitted by the
device.
F
Finalizing
This process enables CDs recorded with a CD recorder or drive to be
played by other players.
L
Linear PCM
This is an uncompressed PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) signal. This is
the same system used for CD audio but uses 192 kHz, 96 kHz, and 48
kHz sampling frequencies on Blu-ray Disc or DVD and provides higher
resolution than CD.
M
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)
This is an internationally standardized audio data compression scheme,
based on the “MPEG-1” video compression standard. It compresses
the data volume to about one eleventh its original size while maintaining
sound quality roughly equivalent to a music CD.
S
Sampling frequency
Sampling involves taking a reading of a sound wave (analog signal) at
regular intervals and expressing the height of the wave at each reading in
digitized format (producing a digital signal).
The number of readings taken in one second is called the “sampling
frequency”. The larger the value, the closer the reproduced sound is to
the original.
W
WMA (Windows Media Audio)
This is the audio compression technology developed by Microsoft
Corporation.
To encode WMA files, only use applications authorized by Microsoft
Corporation. If you use an unauthorized application, the file may not work
properly.
