Recently, technologies for parametric coding of multi-channel audio signals have received wide attention under the name of “Spatial Audio Coding.” In contrast to a fully discrete representation of multi-channel sound, these techniques allow for a backward compatible transmission at bitrates only slightly higher than rates commonly used for mono / stereo sound. Motivated by this prospect, the MPEG Audio standardization group started a new work item on Spatial Audio Coding. This paper reports on… CONTINUE READING
