BS EN 60958-4-4:2016

Digital audio interface. Professional applications. Physical and electrical parameters

Status : Current   Published : August 2016



IEC 60958-4-4:2016 specifies the physical and electrical parameters for different media. This part together with IEC 60958-1, IEC 60958-4-1, and IEC 60958-4-2 specify an interface for the serial digital transmission of two channels of periodically sampled and linearly represented digital audio data from one transmitter to one receiver. This first edition, together with IEC 60958-4-1 and IEC 60958-4-2, cancels and replaces the IEC 60958-4 published in 2003 and its Amendment 1:2008 and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to IEC 60958-4:2003 with its Amendment 1:2008:

- support for a wider range of physical media;

- support for a wider range of audio sampling frequencies;

- deprecation of "minimum implementation" of channel status data.
