Hi All, I am trying to find the best way to analyze 2 speech signals from 2 different speakers and come up with a 'match percentage' as to how close they were (ie, did the speakers say the same thing). I have been reading that LPC is great for encoding the basic parameters of speech, but most of the articles are related to compression or building of a vocoder. Has anyone had experience ...

Data compression that works down to DC

So I'm working on a product that logs a bunch of data to flash. Due to physical space constraints (the board is something like 35 x 45mm), I only have 2MB at my disposal, and if I were to log EVERYTHING that's available in uncompressed form, I'd be challenging the amount of space available. The data is mostly captured analog data, and it's often in the form of small-magnitude numbers...

Hi, Soon i will implement a video compression algorithm on DM642. I'd like to recover the compressed data, which will be stored in SDRAM, in order to be able to replay the video on the PC. Can you tell me if Code Composer allows us to recover data stored in external memory and to save them in a file on the PC ? Does RTDX allow to do that ? Could you point me to some example codes ? ...

Dear all, I am working on the software of a Star Tracker device which should be capable to compress the images for transmission [1]. The CCD is 512x512 and each pixel is digitized with a 12bit ADC and the image frequency is ~10Hz. Since the bandwidth available is rather limited (~1.5 Kb/s) I need to compress the image to a level of few bytes per image to be able to cope with the input...

Hi Folks, Does anyone know of any good algorithms, papers, web sites, etc., that discuss ways to determine the perceived loudness of an audio source? You know, like detecting those nasty over-compressed commercials that sound so loud versus the normal program material? I'm aware of the basic issues such as peak-to-average power ratio (i.e., the effect of compression) and dynamic range di...

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 commu...

The answer to this one may be obvious, I dont know, but I still couldnt figure it out, so I had to post. To remove an interfering frequency from a noisy signal, why don't we simply take the FFT and set the interfering frequency value to zero (in the amplitude spectrum), and then take IFFT again? Something similar seems to be done in JPEG (DCT) compression, where the higher frequencies are simpl...

Hi, I came across the following in the book "H.264 and MPEG 4 Video Compression" by Iain E.G. Richardson: "Flowgraph" algorithms are very popular for software CODECS where (in most cases) the best performance is achieved by minimizing the number of computationally expensive multiply operations. For a hardware implementation, "regular data flow" may be more important than the number of o...

For a school's project, I am programming a standard phase vocoder for time compression/expansion of digital audio. The audiodata is broken up in frames, each frame is multiplied by a window function (in my case a Hann-window) and the result is transformed into frequency-domain by FFT. Now because the frames overlap each other, I was wondering if it's possible to optimize this computatio...

I'm trying to understand G.729. The only compression algorithm I've coded before is ADPCM, and it wasn't keyed to a certain sampling rate - that is, it would be just as happy with 8100 samples per second or 7900 samples per second as it would have been with 8000, just the quality would be slightly higher or lower. With G.729, all the documentation refers to a sampling rate of 8 KHz. Is it ...

Hi all, I have a vector of real numbers in Matlab. How do I compress them? Of course this has to be lossless, since I need to be able to recover them. The goal is to study the Shannon rate and entropy of these real numbers, so I decide to compress them and see how much compression ratio I can have. I don't need to write the result into compressed files, so those headers, etc. are ju...

Hi all, I've recently begun trying to understand the fundamentals of lossy image compression via transforms such as DCT and Wavelets (CDF9/7).

This involves flipping the image vertically and horizontally and copy those flipped variants above, be...

I was wondering if there was a relatively straightforward algorithm for compressing image using Fourier transforms. I was thinking that I could transform an image into frequency space and then perform a lowpass filter on the image to set all the lesser frequencies to zero, then perform a run-length-encoding on the data to pack the zeroes. However, I have been running into trouble with this me...

I'm doing robotics and built a sonar system to detect walls using pulse-compression - this seems to work fine so far. As I'm only interested in the echoes from the front wall, I need to filter out unwanted side echoes (e.g. from floor, ceiling).
