A new codec from Fraunhofer allows for 5.1 streams of AAC to be reduced to 160kbit/s, with a 48 channel count, for transmission.

This is totally the future of content delivery whatever the format we end up using.

    It’s been broadcast since 2009 on Freeview HD. The unified speech and audio coding work should be coming out soon which is really impressive.
