MP3 Logo – MPEG-1 Audio Layer III or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III , more commonly known as MP3 is a format of audio compression that uses a proprietary digital algorithm with loss to get a smaller file size. It is a format of audio music commonly used for both computers as portable audio players .
MP3 was developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group ( MPEG ) to form part of the standard MPEG-1 and later and more extended MPEG-2 . Created using an MP3 compression 128kbit / s have a size of approximately 11 times lower than its namesake in CD. An MP3 can also be compressed using a higher or lower bit rate per second, resulting directly in their degree of end audio quality, and in the resulting file size.This format was pioneered by Karlheinz Brandenburg , director of electronic media technologies at the Fraunhofer Institute IIS, part of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft – research network of Germans – who along with Thomson Multimedia controls the bulk of patents related to MP3. The first was recorded in 1986 and several more in 1991. It was not until July 1995 when Brandenburg was first used by the. Mp3 for MP3 files related to that stored in his computer. A year later entered the institute for patents 1.2 million euros . Ten years later this figure has reached 26.1 million. More
