It is a flexible and reliable method for memorising bitmap images in black and white, grey scale, colour scale, RGB, CMYK. It can be saved with or without compression.
Draft Title Sub-heading Body of the text Paragraph heading
Audio file formats (.mp3) MP3 with a bitrate of 128Kb (MPEG-1/2 Audio Layer 3 with compression at 128 Kbit/s) is an audio compression algorithm to be able to drastically reduce the quantity of data required to reproduce a sound, while maintaining its fidelity to the non-compressed original. This technology makes it possible to reduce audio files to one twelfth of their original size. E.g., a file containing 5 minutes of stereo music (two channels, 16 bits, 44,100 MHz) can be reduced from 60 MB in the original to just 5 MB as an MP3 file, maintaining nearly the same quality as an audio CD.
