Cascaded Trellis-Based Optimization for MPEG-4 Advanced Audio Coding

Document Thumbnail

A low complexity and high performance scheme for choosing MPEG-4 Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) parameters is proposed. One key element in producing good quality compressed audio at low rates is selecting proper coding parameter values. The MPEG committee AAC reference model does not do well on this job. A joint trellis-based optimization approach has thus been previously proposed. It leads to a near-optimal selection of parameters at the cost of extremely high computational complexity. It is, therefore, very desirable to achieve a similar coding performance (audio quality) at a much lower complexity. Simulation results indicate that the proposed cascaded trellis-based optimization scheme has a coding performance close to that of the joint trellis-based scheme, but it requires only 1/70 computations.
