Scalable Bitplane Runlength Coding

Document Thumbnail

Low-complexity audio compression offering fine-grain bitrate scalability can be realised with bitplane runlength coding. Adaptive Golomb codes are computationally simple runlength codes that allow bitplane runlength coding to achieve notable coding efficiency. For multi-block audio frames, coefficient interleaving prior to bitplane runlength coding also results in a substantial increase in coding efficiency. It is shown that bitplane runlength coding is more compact than the best known SPIHT arrangement for audio bitplane coding, and achieves coding efficiency that is competitive with fixed-rate quantisation.
