After reading, what seems like a lot of material, I'm still in doubt why DCT isnt used in audio-compression. Seeing as DCT assumes mirror symmetry, my only idea for not validating DCT over MDCT is that with real-life signals you can rarely (if ever) expect a signal to have that property? Is that correct or is there a better explanation.

Hello All, The task is to transmit the grayscale video over the ethernet in the real time. The input stream is 8bpp, 1024x768, 25fps. The compressed stream should be no more then ~30Mbps. The available computing power is ~300MIPS of the general purpose DSP. It is desired to preserve as much quality as possible. Do you know of a video compression algorithm which can fit into those ...


Regarding PSNR for audio compression

Started by vasindagi in comp.dsp11 years ago

Its known that PSNR (peak signal to noise ratio) is used to compare image quality after compression. Can it also be used for audio quality?

Hello I am trying to do some data compression using the DWT techniques but i have encoutered some problems. Once i have set the threshold values, all the DWT coefficients that were less than the chosen value were reduced to zero which was the purpose. But on the other hand i would like to reconstruct the signal using only the remained coefficients without using those coefficients replaced wit...

howdy, i have a perhaps kind of silly question. i'm trying to program a compressor with a variable knee, expressed as dB above and below the compression threshold. given the threshold, knee and ratio, i'd like to compute an interpolation function (preferably a polynomial for speed) that matches the values and first derivatives at the start and endpoints of the knee region. to be a li...

Hi folks. I'm currently chewing on the following problem: I have a bunch of huge motion sensor signals to lossy compress. Since I need random access to the samples block based compression schemes are out of question. The current approach works like this: I store every 8th sample, quantized from 32 bit down to 8 bits and use this as a rough approximation of the signal. Along with t...

Wavelets compression for circular data?

Is anyone aware of doing wavelet based compression of arrays of angular data (or phase data)? Instead of normal grau=yscale images, you have values from 0-360 degree (which you can quantize between 0-255), but if you have two neighboring pixzels with values of 255 an d0, dont treat it like a discontinuity.. hence this is tricky! Also, would the SAR imagery community (or any other community)...

Hi All As we know that due to relative motion between TX and RX, the transmitted signal undergoes expansion/compression. And due to this symbol and phase synchronization is lost.

As an observation on point 3 above, we know that filter aims to achieve high attenuation i...
