—A new quality-scalable high-fidelity multichannel audio compression algorithm based on MPEG-2 Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) is presented in this research. The Karhunen-Loève Transform (KLT) is applied to multichannel audio signals in the pre-processing stage to remove inter-channel redundancy. Then, signals in de-correlated channels are compressed by a(More)
Being able to transmit the audio bitstream progressively is a highly desirable property for network transmission. MPEG-4 version 2 audio supports fine grain bit rate scalability in the generic audio coder (GAC). It has a bit-sliced arithmetic coding (BSAC) tool, which provides scalability in the step of 1 Kbps per audio channel. There are also several other(More)
MPEG Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) is one of the most distinguished multichannel digital audio compression systems. Based on AAC, we develop a progressive syntax-rich multichannel audio codec in this work. It not only supports fine grain bit rate scalability for multichannel audio bitstreams but also provides several desirable functionalities. MPEG-4(More)
A modified MPEG Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) scheme based on the Karhunen-Loeve transform (KLT) to remove inter-channel redundancy, which is called the MAACKL method, has been proposed in our previous work. However, a straightforward coding of elements of the KLT matrix generates about 240 bits per matrix for typical 5 channel audio contents. Such an(More)
