What is WAVE64?
The Sony Wave64 file format is defined as a true 64 bit file format that allows to overcome the limitations of the RIFF/WAVE format. The file format was originally defined by Sonic Foundry. In Summer 2003, Sony Pictures Digital acquired Sonic Foundry's Desktop Software assets. Since then, the new format is officially promoted as Sony Pictures Digital Wave 64. Companies are encouraged to support this format and no royalties have to be paid to use it.
The Sony Wave64 file format is very similar to the well known RIFF/WAVE format. Therefore, existing software implementations of RIFF/WAVE file filters are likely to be extendable to support the Sony Wave64 file format with little programming effort. Because of the similarities to the RIFF/WAVE format, only the differences between these formats are described. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with the original format as defined by Microsoft.
What is ASF?
ASF is based on serialized objects which are essentially byte sequences identified by a GUID marker.
The format does not specify how (i.e. with which codec) the video or audio should be encoded; it just specifies the structure of the video/audio stream. This is similar to the function performed by the QuickTime, AVI, or Ogg container formats. One of the objectives of ASF was to support playback from digital media servers, HTTP servers, and local storage devices such as hard disk drives.
The most common filetypes contained within an ASF file are Windows Media Audio (WMA) and Windows Media Video (WMV). Note that the file extension abbreviations are different from the codecs which have the same name. Files containing only WMA audio can be named using a .WMA extension, and files of audio and video content may have the extension .WMV. Both may use the .ASF extension if desired.
ASF files can also contain objects representing metadata, such as the artist, title, album and genre for an audio track, or the director of a video track, much like the ID3 tags of MP3 files. It supports scalable media types and stream prioritization; as such, it is a format optimized for streaming.
The ASF container provides the framework for digital rights management in Windows Media Audio and Windows Media Video. An analysis of an older scheme used in WMA reveals that it is using a combination of elliptic curve cryptography key exchange, DES block cipher, a custom block cipher, RC4 stream cipher and the SHA-1 hashing function.
ASF container-based media is usually streamed on the internet either through the MMS protocol or the RTSP protocol.
