Joint Channel Coding

  • Yuli You


Multichannel audio signals or programs, including the most widely used stereo and 5.1 surround sounds, are considered as consisting of discrete channels. Since a multichannel signal is intended for reproduction of coherent sound field, there is strong correlation between its discrete channels. This inter-channel correlation can obviously be exploited to reduce bit rate.
