Q: I teach listening in a college. In order to develop the interests of my students and make my class more vivid, I decided to play the audios of hot movies on the class for listening training.

- The answer is absolutely yes! You can directly rip audio off the DVD for teaching or other purposes by using WinX DVD Copy Pro.

Merits of AC3 Format File

AC3 (Dolby Audio Coding 3) is composed of up to 6 audio channels, specifically, 5 channels for normal-range speakers (20 - 20,000 Hz) and 1 channel (20 Hz - 120 Hz allotted audio) for the subwoofer driven low-frequency effects. In specific, the surround system provided by Dolby AC3 typically consists of 5 pure frequency domain channels including left front, right front, center, left rear and right rear and 1 ultra-low track, called 5.1 channel.

Generally, DVD accepts 3 kinds of audio formats: AC3, MPEG2 and DTS. Compared with the latter two, AC3 mainly has the strong points below:

Good sound effect: AC3 audio is born with extremely good audio effect; it enables you to feel original DVD audio and surround sound;

Meritorious recoverability: AC3 audio can be recovered, with excellent recovery effect. All information within 6 channels is digitalized in the processes of making and restoring, so the information loss is very small.

Therefore, WinX DVD Copy Pro, an up-to-date DVD backup solution provider, chooses AC3 which is more frequently used in DVD as the output audio format to satisfy the needs of the masses.
