Low Complexity Parametric Stereo Coding

Document Thumbnail

Parametric stereo coding is a technique to efficiently code a stereo audio signal as a monaural signal plus a small amount of stereo parameters. The monaural signal can be encoded using any audio coder. The stereo parameters can be embedded in the ancillary part of the mono bit stream creating backwards mono compatibility. In the decoder, first the monaural signal is decoded after which the stereo signal is reconstructed from the stereo parameters. In this paper, a low complexity decoder solution is described based on complex-modulated filter banks. Combinations of the parametric stereo decoder with both a parametric coding scheme and with aacPlus will be elucidated.
