AIFF: a high-quality audio file
This format first emerged in the late 1980s as a development of Apples specialists. It is a standardized format for storing audio data. AIFF files are not compressed, which is why they are larger than mp3. The audio file contains samples and loop information. It is most often used by qualified musicians who need high-quality sound. One minute of audio in the AIFF format requires 10 megabytes of disk space. The encoding process excludes data loss, which makes this format similar to WAV.
MPEG-1 Audio Layer II
This is a standardized format for digital television and radio. MPEG-1 Audio Layer II is compatible with a variety of media players. This format is used exclusively for storing audio information. It is employed in satellite broadcasting. The MPEG-1 Audio Layer II format was originally created in the 1990s. The popular mp3 format is one of its components. Its greatest advantage lies in the fact that the files do not lose the high sound quality upon compression. Before the emergence of DVDs, this format was used for compact discs.
