High Quality, Low Power QMF Bank Design for SBR, Parametric Coding, and MPEG Surround Decoders

Due to the alias-free properties, the complex quadrature mirror filter (QMF) bank has been used in MPEG-4 audio standard on SBR, parametric, and surrounds coding. The high complexity overhead from the complex QMF bank and the complex data processing in the decoder leads to the development of low power decoder which adopts the real QMF bank as the basic building module to reduce the complexity. However the artifacts from the aliasing in the real QMF bank are the major concern. This paper studies the artifacts from the real QMF bank and proposes a novel QMF bank design to achieve both low complexity and high quality. Also, this paper applies the novel QMF bank to develop the high-quality and low-power SBR, parametric, and MPEG surround decoders and shows the merits in complexity and quality.
