  • Publication number: 20060053018
    Abstract: A synthesizer for generating a decorrelation signal using an input signal is operative on a plurality of subband signals, wherein a subband signal includes a sequence of at least two subband samples, the sequence of the subband samples representing a bandwidth of the subband signal, which is smaller than a bandwidth of the input signal. The synthesizer includes a filter stage for filtering each subband signal using a reverberation filter to obtain a plurality of reverberated subband signals, wherein a plurality of reverberated subband signals together represent the decorrelation signal. This decorrelation signal is used for reconstructing a signal based on a parametrically encoded stereo signal consisting of a mono signal and a coherence measure.

  • Publication number: 20060029231
    Abstract: The present invention provides improvements to prior art audio codecs that generate a stereo-illusion through post-processing of a received mono signal. These improvements are accomplished by extraction of stereo-image describing parameters at the encoder side, which are transmitted and subsequently used for control of a stereo generator at the decoder side. Furthermore, the invention bridges the gap between simple pseudo-stereo methods, and current methods of true stereo-coding, by using a new form of parametric stereo coding. A stereo-balance parameter is introduced, which enables more advanced stereo modes, and in addition forms the basis of a new method of stereo-coding of spectral envelopes, of particular use in systems where guided HFR (High Frequency Reconstruction) is employed. As a special case, the application of this stereo-coding scheme in scalable HFR-based codecs is described.
