Efficient Bit Allocation, Quantization, and Coding in an Audio Distribution System
With the advent of digital television broadcasting, there is a need within the broadcast infrastructure for a robust method for the carriage of 5.1-channel sound programs with associated video. A practical approach to this problem involves a number of low-complexity methods for efficient audio coding. These methods are discussed, with a focus on two new bit allocation and quantization methods.
