Spatial Parameter Decision by Least Squared Error in Parametric Stereo Coding and MPEG Surround

Document Thumbnail

Parametric stereo coding (PS) and MPEG Surround (MPS) are used to reconstruct stereo or multi-channel signals from down-mixed signals with the spatial parameters. These spatial parameters are transmitted based on the resolution of the time-frequency (T-F) tile. The T-F resolution controls the accuracy of reconstructed spatial scenes and the amount of consumed bits. In PS and MPS coding, the up-mixing matrices based on the spatial parameters for time slots not transmitted are reconstructed in decoder by interpolating the neighboring up-mixing matrices. The estimation of the spatial parameters on time-frequency tile with consideration to the interpolation errors is another issue. This paper proposes a generic dynamic programming method to decide the time-frequency tile and the transmitted parameter values.
