Sounds Not Signals: A Perceptual Audio Format
This Engineering Brief presents a brief overview of a novel audio transmission and storage format. The main feature of the format is the use of absolute sound pressure within the format. A secondary feature is the use of perceptual features to describe the associated sound content. Error reporting and correction systems are briefly described and a case study used to demonstrate the principles involved.
