DVD Audio Data

There are four audio formats used in a DVD movie: PCM, DTS, MPEG-1 Audio Layer II (MP2), or Dolby Digital (AC-3). To be specifically:

• PCM: 48 kHz or 96 kHz sampling rate, 16 bit or 24 bit Linear PCM, 2 to 6 channels, up to 6,144 kbit/s; N. B. 16-bit 48 kHz 8 channel PCM is allowed in a DVD, but it won't work well with authoring applications or DVD players;
• AC-3: 48 kHz sampling rate, 1 to 5.1 (6) channels, up to 448 kbit/s;
• DTS: 48 kHz or 96 kHz sampling rate; channel layouts = 2.0, 2.1, 5.0, 5.1, 6.1; bitrates for 2.0 and 2.1 = 377.25 and 503.25 kbit/s, bitrates for 5.x and 6.1 = 754.5 and 1509.75 kbit/s;
• MP2: 48 kHz sampling rate, 1 to 7.1 channels, up to 912 kbit/s.

However, as PCM uses a relatively high bit rate of 1.6Mbps, which will take a large space and make most DVD players choke. In contrast, ranging from 64 to 448 kbps with a typical bit rate of 384 kbps for 5.1 audio and 192 kbps for stereo audio, AC3 is 1/8 the size of PCM 1.6 Mbps with a very little quality loss. While most DTS on DVD is the lower 768 Kbps mode, it’s not consistently better than 449Kbps AC-3. And the MP2 is quite rare. Therefore, Dolby Digital (AC-3) is the default codec for DVD; most discs use AC-3 mono or stereo audio.
