Liljeryd Lars Gustaf, Ekstrand Per Rune Albin, Henn Lars Fredrik, Kjörling Hans Magnus Kristofer: Source coding enhancement using spectral-band replication. Liljeryd Lars Gustaf, Ekstrand Per Rune Albin, Henn Lars Fredrik, Kjörling Hans Magnus Kristofer, ORTENBLAD Bertil, December 17, 1998: WO/1998/057436 (5 worldwide citation)

The present invention proposes a new method and apparatus for the enhancement of source coding systems. The invention employs bandwidth reduction (101) prior to or in the encoder (103), followed by spectral-band replication (105) at the decoder (107). This is accomplished by the use of new transposi ...
