Overview
It is an audio format which uses a lossless compression technique to compress the original data, without any loss of information. The additional benefit of this format is it maintains a very good quality of Audio. These files are encoded using FLAC algorithm that reduces the size of the primary file ranging from 50 to 80 per cent as the size varies according to the amount and density of the data. Therefore, this codec helps in the production of exact replicas of original data but in reduced size. It also supports a number of electronic devices. For instance- Portable players, car stereos etc. As well as it is streamable which allows users to jump to the middle of a stream with minimum delay.
Technical description
FLAC can deal with any channels from 1 to 8. It also supports PCM bit resolution up to 32 bits per sample and any sampling rate up to 655,350Hz in a single Hertz increment. REPLAYGAIN is an added feature in it which helps to measure and normalize the loudness of received audio. Moreover, it can deflate audio at very high speed which makes it to stand out from the other formats. Also, it is an open-source software which means original source code is freely available and it may be modified as per user’s requirements. Lastly, it has flexibility in metadata that allows one to write its own application when it is registered ID. Its metadata includes tags, cover art, seek tables and cue sheets.

Developer

Overview
It is a format for audio files which compresses the audios using lossy compression. It neglects the redundant information which can not be processed by the human ear. Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has standardized this format. It has superseded the Vorgis and Speex. It offers low latency i.e. there is a less delay in the signal when it enters the system and when it emerges out, this results in real-time interactive communication like video conferencing. Due to its good audio quality, it is widely used by in various listening tests.
Technical description
OPUS has good compatibility with low-end embedded processors as it is less complex. Ranging from 6kbps to 510kbps, it can support both variable and constant bitrate coding. Also, the frame size from 2.5ms to 60ms is supported by this codec. It works smoothly and maintains stability (by avoiding the distortion) while mixing of packets from distinct streams. Speech, Hybrid and pure-CELT are the three different methods used for encoding the audios of varied frequencies. For compressing the Speech up to 8kHz, SILk is used which is an audio compression developed by Skype Limited. The next mode, Hybrid uses CELT to compress the audio files above 8kHz frequency or for wider bandwidth and frame sizes 10ms and 20ms are supported by this mode. CELT(Constrained Energy Lapped Transform) is an open and free audio compression format which is especially used in communication that requires low latency. For general audio, the last mode pure-CELT is used. CELT is used for frame sizes which are less than 10ms.
