Does anyone know what s/pdf means or what it is?
thanks a lot for your help
Sony/Philips Digital InterFace
Close, but no cigar. More like Sony/Phillips Digital Interface Format. It is was designed and meant to be used as a consumer digital audio format. It has since grown and been expanded to be a standardized digital interface now found on most digital audio products pro or consumer.
It's a new SUPER version of the pdf type of documents created by Adobe Acrobat. The main difference between the standard pdf and the s/pdf is editability. The new s/pdf allows you to edit the document regardless of what format it is, electronic, print out, fax, spoken word, whatever.
The big feature is Voice Command Editing (VCE). Simply read the data from your s/pdf document insert sentences, paragraphs, line breaks, punctuation, where ever you want. With VCE you can move data anywhere you want on the page simply by reading the way it should be.
Another new feature to the s/pdf is Visual Ordering. For example if your document has images, chart, graphs or what have you and you need to move theim around, simply look at them in the order that you want them to be in and Voila! It is done.
The s/pdf will soon replace the antiquated pdf, doc and even the good ole txt files. It's the wave of the future. Get out your wet suits!
Your serious about that huh? Interesting. I was thinking he just forgot or skiped the "I"
uh, I think he's joking. Regular 'ol PDF actually IS editable
but is it EDIBLE?? :lol:
Why yes it is!!!
But not in a "Paperless Office" environment...
BTW - I would hope that the poster is not asking about program extensions in an Audio forum!
Follow up question: how do you pronounce S/PDIF?
I say "Ess Pee Dif", but that's based just on how it looks to me.
Similar to me..
"Ess-puh-dif" with the emphasis on Ess...
Spud-Diff or S-Pee-Diff is how I have always heard and said it.
Hey, different spuds for different buds
oh... god that was cheesy....
I could probably get more SPEED IF my mother-in-law wouldn't sit in the back seat!
