    xHE-AAC

    do any of you know anything about this codec mentioned here by Andrew in this excellent howto

    He says early days


    wiki

    any news? any idea how to test find samples and more importantly to convert to

    xHE-AAC: Otherwise known as "Extended High Efficiency AAC". This is the most recent addition to the AAC family and it aims to unify speech and music encoding primarily for broadcast with high quality encoding at low bitrates. As far as I know there is no Linux encoder available yet and the few samples I have found have been unplayable on Linux. Early days...

    Thanx

    Re: xHE-AAC

    Somewhat piqued again by xHE-AAC I have investigated a little further and sent an email to Fraunhofer IIS regarding use and licensing. Looks like there are no immediate plans for releasing the encoder / decoder that most people are keen for . Mandy (Head of Marketing Communications Audio & Media Technologies Division) sent the following very polite message back to me:

    thanks for your mail and your interest in our technology. Unfortunately we are offering our software
    only for manufacturers or hard- or software to implement it into their products. We are only a B-2-B
    operating company.

    We hope that in the near future we can see offers for audio encoders such as the Sonnox tools to
    include xHE into their products.
    So keen audiophiles will have to wait a fair while before coming to grips with xHE-AAC...
