ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical
Commission) form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that are members of
ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through technical committees
established by the respective organization to deal with particular fields of technical activity. ISO and IEC
technical committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other international organizations, governmental
and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC, also take part in the work. In the field of information
technology, ISO and IEC have established a joint technical committee, ISO/IEC JTC 1.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of the joint technical committee is to prepare International Standards. Draft International
Standards adopted by the joint technical committee are circulated to national bodies for voting. Publication as
an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the national bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent
rights. ISO and IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

Amendment 3 to ISO/IEC 14496-3:2009 was prepared by Joint Technical Committee ISO/IEC JTC 1,

Information technology — Coding of audio-visual objects —

Part 3: Audio, AMENDMENT 3: Transport of unified speech and
audio coding (USAC)

Editorial Note: Note that the term "Unified Speech and Audio Coding" and the abbreviation "USAC" may not
be the final term for describing the current USAC work item. If the MPEG Audio Subgroup should decide to
change the name and abbreviation to something else, it is understood that the amendments described in this
document need to be adapted accordingly.

In the following, changes in existing text and tables are highlighted by gray background.

In 1.2 (Normative references) add:


ISO/IEC 23003-3, Information technology — MPEG audio technologies — Part 3: Unified speech and audio


In 1.3 (Terms and definitions) insert at the appropriate place and align numbering:


x.y.z USAC: Unified Speech and Audio Coding.


In (Audio object type definition) amend Table 1.1 by adding an entry for USAC audio object type:

Audio Object Type
Object Type ID

gain control

0 Null
[..] […]
41 SMR Main
44 LD MPEG Surround
45 - 95(reserved)


In add a description for the USAC audio object type:

© ISO/IEC 2011 – All rights reserved 1

ISO/IEC 14496-3:2009/PDAM 3

" USAC object type

The USAC object type conveys Unified Speech and Audio Coding payload (see ISO/IEC 23003-3) in the
MPEG-4 Audio framework.

In subclause (audioProfileLevelIndication), insert the following new entry into Table 1.14
(audioProfileLevelIndication values) and adapt the “reserved for ISO use” range accordingly:


Value Profile Level

0x44 TBD TBD
0x45 TBD TBD
0x46 TBD TBD
0x47 TBD TBD
0x48 TBD TBD
0x49 TBD TBD
0x4C - reserved for ISO use -

Editorial Note: The table above will be subject to change depending on further discussion in the Audio

In amend Table 1.15 as follows:


Table 1.15 – Syntax of AudioSpecificConfig()

Syntax No. of Mnemoni
bits c
AudioSpecificConfig ()
audioObjectType = GetAudioObjectType();
switch (audioObjectType) {

case 41:
case 42: NOTE
case 43:
saocPresentFlag = 1;
saocPayloadEmbedding; 1 uimsbf
NOTE: In the Baseline USAC profile defined in ISO/IEC 23003-3 4.5.2, the
backwards compatible signaling of SBR, PS, MPS, or SAOC at the end of the
AudioSpecificConfig() (i.e., using the extensionIdentifier bitstream element) is
not permitted.

After add the new subclause as follows:

" UsacConfig
Defined in ISO/IEC 23003-3 clause 5.


In subclause amend Table 1.17 “Audio Object Types” as follows:


Object Audio definition of elementary Mapping of audio payloads to

Type ID Object Type stream payloads and detailed access units and elementary
syntax streams
[…] […] […] […]
41 SMR Main ISO/IEC 14496-23
42 USAC ISO/IEC 23003-3 see subclause
43 SAOC ISO/IEC 23003-2
44 LD MPEG ISO/IEC 23003-2

After add the following subclause:


© ISO/IEC 2011 – All rights reserved 3

One top level payload (UsacFrame()) is mapped into one access unit. A sequence of access units forms one
elementary stream.
