Posted: 12-Oct-2004 [Source: Ahead Software AG]

[Nero announced a single chip decoding solution as 3GPP approves HE-AAC for music delivery on 3G handsets.]

Karlsbad, Germany -- Following the 3GPP announcement of MPEG-4 High-Efficiency AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) as the codec of choice for delivery of audio content to future 3G devices, Ahead Software AG, leaders in digital media technology and co-developers with Ateme of France of Nero Digital(tm), the IT and CE all-in-one MPEG-4 solution, have announced VHDL core, capable of decoding 3GPP audio, (HE-AAC v2 with parametric stereo extensions) as well as legacy Low Complexity AAC and High Efficiency AAC audio, already used in online music delivery over the internet.

High Efficiency Advanced Audio Coding with parametric stereo extensions (known as HE-AAC v2) provides the highest possible audio quality at previously unseen bit rates as low as 24 kilobits per second. This makes HE-AAC v2 perfectly suitable for narrowband and mobile networks. The Nero Digital(tm) Audio implementation of HE-AAC v2 has already proven to be superior in the audio quality stakes, as proven by recent independent listening tests.

Full Nero Digital(tm) Audio 3GPP VHDL solution will contain:

- Audio Source Decoder (supporting 3GPP HE-AAC modes, including HE-AAC v2 with parametric stereo extensions, HE-AAC and LC-AAC)

- Integrated digital equalizer inside the AAC core (reducing power consumption and eliminating need for additional electronic components)
