Problems of Error Masking in Audio Data Compression Systems

Document Thumbnail

This paper notes the failure of spectral masking of coding errors by wanted signals when the error is highly cross-correlated with the signal. This can reduce effective masking thresholds by 30 dB. The existence of such cross-correlation is proved for all Shannon efficient audio data compression systems. At low bit rates, these can exhibit up to 4 dB gain modulation. Stereo directional masking effects can also reduce masking thresholds. An improved cross-spectral class of models for masking, taking account of these effects, is discussed.
