Strategies to Increase the Applicability of Methods for Objective Assessment of Audio Quality
The current ITU?s standard for objective assessment of audio quality, Perceptual Evaluation of Audio Quality (PEAQ), has some shortcomings that prevent its reliable use for a number of codification conditions and some kind of signals. The paper aims to improve the PEAQ performance through the following proposals: 1- modifications in the manner the signals are submitted to the assessment; 2- improvement of existing Model Output Variables (MOVs); 3- creation of new MOVs; 4- determination of a better architecture for the neural network that maps the MOVs into a single estimate for the subjective score. The results are compared to those ones achieved by PEAQ.
