Microsoft Audio/Visual Interleaved

File extension .avi
File category video
Description AVI stands for Audio and Video Interleave. It has an extension written as .avi, and users use this same format to store audio and video on their PC, which was developed by Microsoft in 1992 for its Video for Windows project. It allows the simultaneous playback by keeping video and audio into a single file. The simple architecture of .avi format will enable it to run on various operating systems such as Windows, Mac, Linux, Unix. It is supported by multiple web players as well.
Technical details AVI format uses Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF) support, where the real data is stored into chunks, and each chunk gets recognized by a FourCC tag. Out of these individual chunks, the first one can be recognized by the hdrl tag, and it can decode the chunk containing metadata for the video. The second chunk gets identified by the movi tag, and it includes the actual audio and visual data which makes up the AVI movie. It uses less compression rather than the MOV and MPEG file formats.

WAVE Audio File

File extension .wav
File category audio
Description

WAV is one of the most common audio formats and stands for Waveform Audio File Format. It is intended for operation with a digitalized audio stream. However, it has also been used for non-audio data due to its sampling rate (1 Hz to 4.3 GHz). It contains musical compositions, voice recordings, and various audio effects. Developed by programmers from Microsoft and IBM, it is a crucial audio format for placing uncompressed sound files on Windows PCs. The wav wave files can be played back in QuickTime, Windows Media Player, Wav Player, and some other programs. In addition to that, they can be processed in audio editing apps.

When a file is compressed into WAV, the data are not supposed to be lost, and the quality is excellent. However, the format did not have a considerable market share due to its larger size than MP3. It must have enough time and disc space to upload and send such files via the Internet. One of WAV's major advantages is linked to Linear Pulse Code Modulation (LPCM) to store an audio stream. Consequently, a copy is just as good as an original, highly appraised by experts in music and professional users.

Technical details

Sound files with this extension are recorded into 8 or 16 bit per sample. A standard option for CD Audio is an audio stream of 16 bit per sample and a sampling frequency of 44.1 KHz. One second of sound corresponds to 88 Kb of internal memory. WAV files can store metadata in the INFO chunk, and they also include integrated IFF lists.

In some cases, the standard format may be used for broadcasting. For instance, BBC stereo data of 44 100 Hz and 16 bit are generally accepted within the VCS system.
