3G2 is an audio / video format that was developed using the 3rd Generation Partnership Project 2 (3GPP2). The file extension is an improved version of the 3GP format. Today it is already outdated, despite the fact that it was previously updated. As a result of the implementation of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project, standards were developed that relate to methods of transmitting a wide variety of media data. For example, on mobile networks. The development of such standards, in particular, has led to the introduction of the 3G2 format and to the use of various types of media data on the global network for online streaming. This type of file is most often used on mobile phones, as well as on phones that support 3G. 3G2 video files can also be played on many computers. We emphasize that in this case there may be a need for additional applications. The 3G2 format is very similar to the MPEG-4 Part 14 series (MP4) format. However, in comparison with it, the 3G2 format is not so complicated. When you apply this type of file, you need to consider the possibility of reducing the requirements for the width of both the information transfer channel and disk space. So, the format for mobile phones is exactly what you need. 3G2 files have been specifically developed for phones operating in the CDMA standard.
MPC is one of the files of the Audio category. This unlicensed file format is intended to store audio information. The MPC format (i.e. Musepack Compressed Audio File) was created by Musepack. Musepack is a lossy compression scheme developed by German programmer Andree Buschmann. He started creating the codec in 1997. At that time he had the name MP +. The developer was not satisfied with the existing quality of MP3 coding. The algorithm is based on MP2 (MPEG-1 Layer 2), where there are 32 frequency bands, but with significant improvements. Over the past years, it has undergone revision and has become much better. It is currently at a more advanced stage, which contains highly optimized and unpatented source code. The MPC encoding quality at high bitrates (160 Kbps and more) is much higher than the quality that MP3 provides. During coding, a different psychoacoustic compression algorithm is used. In MPC, frequencies that ignore MP3 encoders do not disappear. The specificity of MPC is the fine tuning of psychoacoustics. This provides the ability to operate with pure VBR encoding (variable bit rate encoding). The main task of Musepack is to obtain the highest transparency of sound.
