In multichannel acoustic signal coding and decoding, left-and right-channel signals are alternately interleaved for each sample to generate a one-dimensional signal sample sequence. The one-dimensional signal sample sequence is subjected to coding based on correlation. In coding, the left- and right ...

An input acoustic signal is subjected to modified discrete cosine transform processing to obtain its spectrum characteristics. On the other hand, linear prediction coefficients are derived from the input acoustic signal in a linear prediction coding analysis part (17), and the prediction coefficient ...

Disclosed are coding and decoding methods and related coders and decoders, wherein signal components of plural channels are weighted-vector quantized as a single vector produced by combining them together with weights corresponding to their power components. The invention permits production of the q ...

In a CELP coding scheme, p-order LPC coefficients of an input signal are transformed into n-order LPC cepctrum coefficients cj (S2), which are modified into n-order modified LPC cepstrum coefficients cj' (S3). Log power spectral envelopes of the input signal and a masking function suited thereto are ...
