On a New Enhancement of Speech Signal Using Non-uniform Sampling and Post Filter

  • Conference paper

Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS,volume 342)


To enhance speech signal by reducing the redundancy within samples that resulted from uniform sampling method like PCM, non-uniform sampling or non-redundant-sample coding methods can be considered. However, it is well known that when conventional non-uniform sampling methods are applied directly to speech signal, the required amount of data in the computation is comparable to or more than that of uniform sampling method. To overcome this problem, a new non-uniform sampling method is proposed, in which non-uniform sampling is applied to the speech signal after using the low pass filter and the remain signals are compensated by the rectified signals with various harmonics frequencies.
