Wiley-Interscience | 2007 | ISBN 0471791474 | 464 pages | PDF | 3 Mb

An in-depth treatment of algorithms and standards for perceptual coding of high-fidelity audio, this self-contained reference surveys and addresses all aspects of the field. Coverage includes signal processing and perceptual (psychoacoustic) fundamentals, details on relevant research and signal models, details on standardization and applications, and details on performance measures and perceptual measurement systems. It includes a comprehensive bibliography with over 600 references, computer exercises, and MATLAB-based projects for use in EE multimedia, computer science, and DSP courses.

* Linear prediction, ADPCM, and CELP algorithms for narrowband and wideband coding
* Cellular telephony vocoders versus CD-quality audio coders
* Perceptual modules including the ISO/IEC 11172-3 (MPEG-1) psychoacoustic analysis model
* Detailed descriptions of the MPEG-1 Layer III (MP3) and the AAC (MP4) algorithms
* Descriptions of the algorithms behind successful products such as the Apple iPod
* Filter bank design and algorithms and the Modified Discrete Cosine Transform (MDCT)
* Established and emerging standards for transparent coding of CD-quality stereo audio signals
* Standardization activities in high-fidelity audio coding, including DVD-Audio, Super Audio CD (SACD), Dolby AC3, Digital, Digital Theater Systems (DTS), and Sony SDDS surround sound
* Lossless audio coding and digital audio watermarking techniques, including SHORTEN, DVD-algorithm, MUSICompress, AudioPaK, C-LPAC, LTAC, and IntMDCT lossless coding schemes
* Surround sound compression algorithms for cinema and super audio CD applications
* Digital audio watermarking, content protection, and copyright issues
* Complexity, delay, error control, and subjective quality in perceptual audio coding
