A natural approach to audio coding is to use a rate-distortion optimal design combined with a perceptual model. While this approach is common in transform coding, existing predictive-coding based audio coders are generally not optimal and they benefit from heuristically motivated post-filtering. As delay requirements often force the use of predictive(More)
BACKGROUND Allergic rhinitis (AR) affects 5% to 40% of the general population. In developing countries, AR is poorly documented and tracked due to a lack of appropriate diagnostic tools. OBJECTIVE 1) To validate a questionnaire standardised in industrialised countries to ascertain AR, the Score For Allergic Rhinitis (SFAR), in developing countries; 2) to(More)
A pitch enhancement filter is designed with the objective to approach the optimal rate-distortion trade-off. The filter shows significant perceptual benefits, restating that information-theoretical and perceptual criteria are usually consistent. The filter is easy to implement and can be used as a complement to existing audio codecs. Our experiments show(More)
