Digital audio coding

Code: S1916, ECTS: 1


This course is devoted to digital audio coding: it covers its fundamental concepts and algorithms from signal processing and computer science, presents their uses in popular audio technologies (such as MP3, GSM, etc.) and includes the development of various compression methods during lab sessions.


Concepts and algorithms:

  • Information theory and entropy coding,
  • Scalar and vector quantization,
  • Prediction and identification of parametric models,
  • Spectral analysis,
  • Models for voice and earing.
Lab sessions and cases studies:
  • Introduction to Python,
  • Generic lossless coding,
  • Audio losless coding,
  • Voice predictive coding,
  • Audio perceptual coding.
