Reducing the Complexity of Sub-Band ADPCM Coding to Enable High-Quality Audio Streaming From Mobile Devices

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The number of consumer audio applications demanding high quality audio compression and communication across wireless networks continues to grow. Although the consumer is increasingly demanding higher audio quality, devices such as portable media players and wireless headsets also demand low computational complexity, low power dissipation and practical transmission bit-rates to help conserve battery life. This paper discusses research undertaken to lower the complexity of existing high-quality sub-band ADPCM coding schemes to better satisfy these conflicting criteria.
