Digital audio interface - Part 4-1: Professional applications - Audio content

IEC 60958-4-1:2016 specifies the format for coding audio used for the audio content. Together with IEC 60958-1, IEC 60958-4-2, and IEC 60958-4-4, it specifies an interface for serial digital transmission of two channels of periodically sampled and linearly represented digital audio data from one transmitter to one receiver. This first edition, together with IEC 60958-4-2 and IEC 60958-4-4, cancels and replaces IEC 60958-4 published in 2003 and its Amendment 1:2008 and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to IEC 60958 4:2003 with its Amendment 1:2008: - support for a wider range of physical media; - support for a wider range of audio sampling frequencies; - deprecation of "minimum implementation" of channel status data.

Interface audionumérique - Partie 4-1: Applications professionnelles - Contenu audio

L'IEC 60958-4-1:2016 spécifie le format de codage audio utilisé pour le contenu audio. Cette partie, avec l'IEC 60958-1, l'IEC 60958-4-2 et l'IEC 60958-4-4, précise une interface de transmission numérique en série de deux voies de données audionumériques échantillonnées de façon périodique et représentées de façon linéaire entre un émetteur et un récepteur. Cette première édition, avec l'IEC 60958-4-2 et l'IEC 60958-4-4, annule et remplace l'IEC 60958-4 parue en 2003 et l'Amendement 1:2008 et constitue une révision technique. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'IEC 60958 4:2003 et son Amendement 2008: - prise en charge d'une gamme plus large de supports physiques; - prise en charge d'une gamme plus large de fréquences d'échantillonnage audio; - "mise en oeuvre minimale" des données de la voie de signalisation déconseillée.

Digitalni avdio vmesnik - 4-1. del: Profesionalna uporaba - Zvočna vsebina (IEC 60958-4-1:2016)

Ta del standarda IEC 60958 opredeljuje format za kodiranje zvoka, ki se uporablja za zvočne vsebine. Skupaj s standardi IEC 60958-1, IEC 60958-4-2 in IEC 60958-4-4 opredeljuje vmesnik za serijski digitalni prenos dveh kanalov periodično vzorčenih in linearno predstavljenih digitalnih zvočnih podatkov od določenega oddajnika do določenega sprejemnika.
Pričakovati je, da bodo zvočni podatki vzorčeni v skladu s frekvencami vzorčenja, ki jih zazna AES5. Zmožnost vmesnika, da prepozna druge vrednosti vzorčenja, ne pomeni, da je priporočeno, da oprema te vrednosti podpira. Za odpravo dvomov so na specifikaciji opreme naštete podprte frekvence vzorčenja.
