A Perceptual-Coding Technique Offering the Best Compromise between Quality, Bit Rate, and Complexity for DSB
Recently developed perceptual coding will play an important role in the future of broadcasting and telecommunications. Among these is the MUSICAM audio coding system, designed by a European team of researchers, within the scope of the EUREKA 147 project, with the aim of being one of the key components of Digital sound broadcasting (DSB) systems. Providing a significant reduction in the bit rate of a high quality digital audio program, this new technique has been selected by the standardization body ISO/IEC JTC1/SC29/WG11 (Moving Pictures Expert Group, MPEG) as the basis of a three-layer concept, and is now applicable to a wide range of professional and consumer electronics services.
