VQF, ATRAC3, & ePac
While MP3 has become the de facto format for independent artists & labels as well as consumers, there are many other competing audio formats that are trying to see the light of day. Offering much more in the way of audio quality and security, these formats are being pushed by many of the companies in the record, software, and electronics industries. In the meantime, many of these formats are being used as components in future audio formats such as MPEG-4 as well as portable digital music players.
