Scaleable Multi-Channel DSD Coding

Document Thumbnail

DSD is a 1-bit coding scheme based upon sigma-delta modulation. In the commercial realization of this technology exploiting DVD optical disc storage, six discrete channels are accommodated each with a constant bit rate of 2.8224 Mb/s, a specification that cannot be changed within the context of the SACD release format. However, a method of embedding additional data in the DSD bitstream is shown to be feasible with the aim of increasing the number of channels to twelve. The technique retains full compatibility with SACD and only requires modest processing to decode an additional six channels.
