Quality Adviser ? A Multichannel Audio Quality Expert System

Document Thumbnail

The basic audio quality of 5.1 multichannel audio reproduction was evaluated under different technical conditions. The obtained database of subjective responses was used to develop a multichannel audio quality expert system. There are three aims of this development: (1) to predict audio quality as a function of individual channel bandwidth, (2) to predict audio quality as a function of given down-mix algorithms, (3) to predict the optimum technical trade-off between these factors for a given total bandwidth of a multichannel audio signal. Obtained results indicate a close correspondence between the predicted and actual quality ratings. It is intended that the final version of the Quality Adviser will be suitable as a decision making aid for broadcasters and codec designers.
