  • Patent number: 10937432
    Abstract: There is provided an error concealment unit, method, and computer program, for providing an error concealment audio information for concealing a loss of an audio frame in an encoded audio information. In one embodiment, the error concealment unit provides an error concealment audio information for a lost audio frame on the basis of a properly decoded audio frame preceding the lost audio frame. The error concealment unit derives a damping factor on the basis of characteristics of a decoded representation of the properly decoded audio frame preceding the lost audio frame. The error concealment unit performs a fade out using the damping factor.

  • Publication number: 20200286494
    Abstract: An audio decoder for providing a decoded audio information on the basis of an encoded audio information is configured to obtain decoded spectral values on the basis of an encoded information representing the spectral values. The audio decoder is configured to jointly decode two or more most significant bits per spectral value on the basis of respective symbol codes for a set of spectral values using an arithmetic decoding, wherein a respective symbol code represents two or more most significant bits per spectral value for one or more spectral values. The audio decoder is configured to decode one or more least significant bits associated with one or more of the spectral values in dependence on how much least significant bit information is available, such that one or more least significant bits associated with one or more of the spectral values are decoded.

  • Publication number: 20200265846
    Abstract: An assignment of one of phase set of different loss concealment tools of an audio decoder to a portion of the audio signal to be decoded from a data stream, which portion is affected by loss, that is the selection out of the set of different loss concealment tools, may be made in a manner leading to a more pleasant loss concealment if the assignment/selection is done based on two measures: A first measure which is determined measures a spectral position of a spectral centroid of a spectrum of the audio signal and a second measure which is determined measures a temporal predictability of the audio signal. The assigned or selected loss concealment tool may then be used to recover the portion of the audio signal.

  • Publication number: 20200265852
    Abstract: There are disclosed apparatus and methods for encoding and/or decoding information signals (e.g., audio signals). An encoder apparatus includes a plurality of frequency domain (FD) encoder tools for encoding an information signal, and an encoder bandwidth detector and controller configured to select a bandwidth for at least a subgroup of the FD encoder tools. The subgroup includes less FD encoder tools than the plurality of FD encoder tools. The selection is based on information signal characteristics, so that one of the FD encoder tools of the subgroup has a different bandwidth with respect to at least one of the FD encoder tools which are not in the subgroup.

  • Publication number: 20200051578
    Abstract: A downscaled version of an audio decoding procedure may more effectively and/or at improved compliance maintenance be achieved if the synthesis window used for downscaled audio decoding is a downsampled version of a reference synthesis window involved in the non-downscaled audio decoding procedure by downsampling by the downsampling factor by which the downsampled sampling rate and the original sampling rate deviate, and downsampled using a segmental interpolation in segments of 1/4 of the frame length.
