Vorbis is an open source codec first introduced by Xiph foundation in the year 2002. Vorbis encoder can operate on 8-32 bit PCM audio signals sampled at 8-192 KHz and generates compressed bit-streams having bit-rates in the range of 8  1536 kbps. Vorbis is based on the modified discrete cosine transform and uses vector quantization to represent the transformed coefficients. The compressed bit-stream can be represented in Ogg (container format for file transport) or RTP (for network multicast) packing format. Vorbis is a royalty free codec and has been deployed in gaming and audio broadcasting applications.

  • Based on TREMOR open source standard version 1.0.0
  • Optimized ASM/C implementation.
  • Re-entrant implementation

  • Support for 16/24 bit PCM output audio signals sampled at 8 KHz 64 KHz.
  • Support for up to 5.1 audio channels.
  • Support bit-rates ranging from 8kbps to 1536kbps.
  • Supports down-mixing to mono or stereo.
  • Supports Interleaved and de-interleaved output.
  • Supports decoding of bit-rate peeled streams
  • Supports decoding of streams packed using ogg container.
  • Supports decoding of Vorbis audio packets from multiplexed streams containing audio, video and any other metadata.
  • Supports Little-Endian implementation on ARM
  • Optimized for low memory foot print.
  • Optional support from 64 to 96KHz sampling rates(Table Memory Increases for this support)
  • Optional support for xDM API’s.
  • Tested for bit-compliance using a large database of audio test vectors
  • Tested for mono, 2-channel, and 5-channel stereo test vectors
