Analyzing the Performance of Lossless Coding Techniques Used in Audio Coders

Document Thumbnail

This paper examines the parameters involved in determining the achievable performance for lossless audio coding techniques. Entropy theory can be difficult to apply to a practical system. Therefore, many compromises are made for practical implementation because of complexity and memory constraints. In order to develop an efficient implementation, it is essential to have a metric that takes all these factors into consideration. The authors propose a metric and show how it can be applied to several different coding systems.:
