Monitoring of the audio content quality is important for Digital Audio Broadcasting. Although the subjective methods asses quality more reliably, the objective methods have to be considered when needed big amount of the repeated tests. The highest differences between results of objective and subjective assessment were proved for modern high efficient codecs in the case of the lower bitrates. In this paper, two objective methods, PEAQ and PEMO-Q, are compared to be able to choose the more… 

Figures and Tables from this paper



Perceived Audio Quality Analysis in Digital Audio Broadcasting Plus System Based on PEAQ

Stereo music has worse quality than stereo speech generally, whereas for mono, the dependencies vary upon the codec/profile, and numbers of services satisfying various quality criteria are presented.

Subjective and Objective Assessment of Perceived Audio Quality of Current Digital Audio Broadcasting Systems and Web-Casting Applications

It is shown that a retrained POLQA Music provides the best overall correlations between predicted objective measurements and subjective scores allowing to predict the final perceived quality with good accuracy when scores are averaged over a small set of musical fragments.

An Audio Quality Evaluation of Commercial Digital Radio Systems

These evaluation results provide the true audio quality of commercial digital radio services for various types of systems and bit rates, and can be used as a reference to determine the optimal channel capacity of digital radio service for a given target audio quality.

Audio Quality Determination Based on Perceptual Measurement Techniques

A new, perceptual, approach to determine audio quality is discussed, which characterizes the perception of the output signal of the audio system and makes predictions about the subjectively perceived audio quality of the system output using any input signal.

Objective quality assessment for the acoustic zoom

This article investigates the possibility of applying objective methods for audio quality assessment on an acoustic zooming system and it compares their results and the results of the subjective intelligibility test.

Perceived Audio Quality of Realistic FM and DAB+ Radio Broadcasting Systems

This study concludes that when making decisions on broadcasting systems, it is important to have well-founded and clearly defined criteria for minimum acceptable quality and/or perceptually transparent quality.

Subjective and Objective Comparative Study of DAB+ Broadcast System

Whether the quality of real-time digital DAB+ broadcasted radio programs surpasses the quality offered by analog FM radio is analyzed.

PEMO-Q—A New Method for Objective Audio Quality Assessment Using a Model of Auditory Perception

A new method for the objective assessment and prediction of perceived audio quality is introduced, based on a psychoacoustically validated, quantitative model of the "effective" peripheral auditory processing, which shows a higher prediction accuracy than the ITU-R recommendation BS.1387.

The evaluation of correlations of several objective measures with these three subjective rating scales is reported on and several new composite objective measures are also proposed by combining the individual objective measures using nonparametric and parametric regression analysis techniques.

Applications of digital signal processing to audio and acoustics

There are whole classes of algorithms that the speech community is not interested in pursuing or using in digital signal processing of sound and these algorithms and techniques are revealed in this book.
