Eugene, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/03/2014 -- SDR [short for Software Development Resource] has finally announced launching of their free audio converter that can handle not just single file extension conversion but numerous file types all at the same time. “This has been a welcomed development considering that we have been only releasing one to one converter series before this update. Our team has really worked hard to see where things will push through and able to forecast an all in one solution for such cases,” says Steven Coluido, president of Software Development Resource
The All in One Audio File Converter
SDR is proud to announce their one size fits all solution when it comes to an audio converter . In the past few months, they have continuously released series of audio file converters from WAV to MPEG4, DVD, MP3, WMV and WMA file formats week after week.
“Our team felt that this has been a fruitful journey as this helps us prove our wide range of capabilities when it comes to delivering highly on demand converting programs with daily use. But our team didn't stop at that, rather exceeded expectations when they decided to come up with this idea of instantly covering all these files in one and even added two more unreleased file type converters,” adds Coluido.
These files include the OGG and AC3 file formats respectively.
“We thought that this audio converter is almost complete until we realized that not all audio files we've once encountered have been covered,” says one of their developers from half across the globe in Asia.
For familiarity's sake as both these files are not usually encountered but may prove useful for programmers to know, OGG files are container formats [remember Windows AVI and the always open Matroska]. Designed by the Xiph.org foundation, this format can handle high quality digital multimedia such as streams for audio, video, text and even metadata.
Its developers much like Matroska has intended it to be free of any copyright restrictions, so this format has been popular among proprietary media player developers both commercial or not.
On the other hand, AC3 files are produced by Dolby Labs, the same company that produced the Digital Surround system used by most home theater systems and theater complexes today to achieve a better sound effect provision in most films and features today.
AC3 is just the default surround sound file extension type in DVD formats. It was created to provide the same cinematic sound experience in blu-rays, DVDs, and other digital video formats [such as gaming consoles and hand-held devices]. AC3 stands for Audio coding 3 while OGG was derived from ogging taken from an in-game vocabulary for the computer game Netrek. It actually means the act of killing a carrier, or potential carrier by suicide run [something far off but was just used for its uniqueness].
The free audio converter app is very lightweight and easy to navigate even by beginners new to the file format with easy drag and drop function.
