This paper proposes a new bit allocation algorithm, capable of efficiently allocating a given quota of hits to an arbitrary set of different quantizers. This algorithm is useful in any coding scheme which employs hit allocation or, more generally, codebook allocation. It produces an optimal or very nearly optimal allocation, while allowing the set of admissible hit allocation values to be constrained to non-negative integers. It is particularly useful in cases where the quantizer performance… CONTINUE READING
