The Dolby Digital (Plus) AC-3 audio coding standards are currently the key enabling technologies for high-quality compression and decompression of digital audio signals. The Dolby Digital (Plus) AC-3 audio coding standards have adopted the modified discrete cosine transform (MDCT) for the time/frequency transformation of an audio data block. Besides a long transform being the MDCT, the AC-3 defines additional two variants of cosine-modulated filter banks called the first and second short… Expand

TLDR
A fast conversion algorithm is presented to convert the frequency coefficients of the long (MDCT) transform to those of two short transforms and vice versa, directly in the frequency domain, thus minimizing the amount of partial decoding/encoding and memory requirements during the conversion and transcoding processes.

TLDR
The proposed time-frequency hybrid downmixing method for AC-3 decoding does not need frequency coefficients conversion between long and short blocks, and has approximately 26% and 32% reduction in numbers of additions and multiplications, respectively. Expand

TLDR
Since Givens-Jacobi rotation can be factored into a product of Gauss elementary matrices being unit lower and unit upper triangular matrices, the new fast rotation-based computational structures are suitable for an integer approximation of the DCT-IV/DST-IV and MDCT/MDST which are currently modern transform technologies for lossless audio coding.
