The MP3 Is Officially Dead, According To Its Creators
\"Stephen Witt\'s book\" How music is free \"was launched, a survey of the music industry being forced to digitize and subsequently destroyed, and it was not until recently that it began to recover.
Ironically, the eulogy in the conference room actually happened before the compression algorithm (
Don\'t worry, we will explain it later).
Not long ago, MP3 not only upended the record industry, but also contributed to Apple\'s lateness due to the existence of the iPod --
The Post-90 s became one of the most successful companies in history. (
On Tuesday, the tech giant, with a market value of more than $800 billion, became the first company in the United States to have a market value of more than $. S.
Companies that do this. )
But now, 22 years later, according to the people who invented MP3, MP3 is really dead.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits is a department of the state.
The funded German research agency funded MP3\'s post-80 s development and recently announced that the licensing scheme for certain MP3-related patents and software of its \"Technicolor and Fraunhofer IIS has been terminated.
\"Bernhard Geres, director of the fraunhove division and one of the head of MP3 development, told NPR by email that another audio format, AAC-
His organization has also helped create \"Advanced Audio Coding \"--
Now is the de facto standard for \"music downloads and videos on mobile phones.
He said AAC is more efficient and feature-rich than MP3.
\"As Witt has shown in his excellent opening chapter, MP3 was almost dead in the research lab before subverting the music world as we know it.
The team of engineers who invented this format tried to make it possible to send audio over a telephone line, which can only transmit a small amount of data. Fraunhofer —
When competing to convince tech companies of the legitimacy of actually using mp3, it\'s actually making money --
Numerous speed bumps
It has been plagued many times by the destruction of smart companies and later piracy.
Other failures depend on the possibility that the world needs to catch up with technology: Along the way, a computer engineer from the team was granted a patent for a music streaming service that the German government refused, because this is technically ridiculous.
Another innovation that the team failed to take advantage?
Portable MP3 player.
At the beginning of 1995, this form was about life support, and a licensing agreement was the use of this technology at the hockey field in the United States. S. (
A few months later, the spring conference that announced the death of MP3 was held, after another failed speech denied the standardized and widespread adoption of MP3. )
After a while, Fraunhofer began to distribute the software that consumers need to turn discs into mp3 at home.
The rest is the recent history.
Is this the end of an era?
We may still be using mp3, but when someone who has spent most of the decade creating mp3 says it\'s OK, we should probably start focusing on it.
AAC is much better-
This is the default setting to bring CDs into iTunes now-
Other formats are even better than it, although they also take up a lot of space on our hard drives.
Not only that, but the more efficient and complete way to store music has also been developed.
There is a deeper problem.
Engineers developing MP3s are working on incomplete information about how our brains handle sound information, so the MP3s themselves are working on false assumptions about the overall situation we hear.
With the development of psychoacoustic research, the technology we use to listen is also developing.
New audio formats and products are coming, more informative and better addressing mobile music streams.
Deezer is a popular music streaming company in France and launched in the United States. S. offering \"high-
Resolution \"streaming, twice the price of a Spotify account.
Tidal did the same.
Neil Young tried it with a hot-pointed Pono.
Although these three countries do not have full control over the world
In fact, Pono has officially died, renamed \"Xstream \"--
At the very least, the record company has stamped the approval stamp on the idea.
\"Master Quality Certification\" is a promising new technology that uses an audio origami to spare cellular data when necessary and \"bloom\" when quality is not up to standard\"
Although it is sharply criticized for being a closed loop that allows the recording of industry cashins.
This is not the first time.
The form of conveying art and media to us also depicts such media;
Vinyl records for sessions required-
Breaking the flip, the Beatles created an infinite loop of gibberish at the end of the Sgt, thus making an excellent use of this.
The second side of pepper
The VHS tape in the image and sound is soft and fuzzy like a worn out teddy bear, while the new high
Rendering images on hd TV may be too robotic, like T-1000.
As mentioned earlier, MP3 enables millions or billions of songs to be listened to just by incorrect biological assumptions.
To put it simply, our media will always be as imperfect as we are.
