Abstract
This paper proposes an encoding method for high-quality, low-delay audio communication that is robust to losses in packetized transmission. Robustness is provided by a multiple description vector quantization (MDVQ) technique that is designed to minimize the mean-squared error (MSE). The key to applying this technique effectively is the use of psycho-acoustically controlled pre- and post-filters that make the mean-squared quantization error perceptually relevant. Experiments show that the MDVQ-based encoder yields better results-in both MSE and subjective audio quality-than simple alternative coders with the same low delay.
