Bit-plane shifting is one of the strategies for providing Fine Grain Scalability (FGS) in scalable audio coding. It is still desirable to cater the network bandwidth, device capabilities and user preferences. In this paper, a Noise to Mask Ratio (NMR) based bit-plane shifting algorithm is proposed. It is different from just sequential bit-plane coding used in MPEG 4 scalable to lossless (SLS) audio coding, and also different from other existed strategies at lower bit-rate audio coding. It… CONTINUE READING
