Fraunhofer finding MP3 replacement #research

leave a comment »

The Fraunhofer institute is trying to find a replacement for MP3, their current project is designed to last 10 years. Do we really need to have a replacement for MP3 sooner than that? The updates for MPEG came in closer succession, but were required because compression of video signals had such high priority.

You might say MP4, but it is actually MPEG4 part 14 and is not en encoding format, but a transport or container format. The encoding of the content is still done with MP3, AAC or other format.

I wonder what will be the trick to further compress the data, and whether it will be even more closely related to the MPEG4 standard.
