Network Audio: N1 - Error-Tolerant Audio Coding

David Trainor, CSR - Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK
Bernhard Grill, Fraunhofer IIS - Erlangen, Germany
Deepen Sinha, ATC Labs - Newark, NJ, USA
Gary Spittle, Dolby Laboratories - San Francisco, CA, USA

Two important and observable trends are the increasing delivery of real-time audio services over the Internet or cellular network and also the implementation of audio networking throughout a residence, office or studio using wireless technologies. This approach to distributing audio content is convenient, ubiquitous, and can be relatively inexpensive. However the nature of these networks is such that their capacity and reliability for real-time audio streaming can vary considerably with time and environment. Therefore error-tolerant audio coding techniques have an important role to play in maintaining audio quality for relevant applications. This workshop will discuss the capabilities of error-tolerant audio coding algorithms and recent advances in the state of the art.
