Signal Processing, Perceptual Coding and Watermarking of Digital Audio: Advanced Technologies and Models (Premier Reference Source)

The availability of increased computational power and the proliferation of the Internet have facilitated the production and distribution of unauthorized copies of multimedia information. As a result, the problem of copyright protection has attracted the interest of the worldwide scientific and business communities. The most promising solution seems to be the watermarking process where the original data is marked with ownership information hidden in an imperceptible manner in the original signal. Compared to embedding watermarks into still images, hiding data in audio is much more challenging due to the extreme sensitivity of the human auditory system to changes in the audio signal. Understanding of the human perception processes and including them in effective psychoacoustic models is the key to successful watermarking. Aside from psychoacoustic modeling, synchronization is also an important component for a successful watermarking system. In order to recover the embedded watermark from the watermarked signal, the detector has to know the beginning location of the embedded watermark first.

In this book, we focus on those two issues. We propose a psychoacoustic model which is based on the discrete wavelet packet transform (DWPT). This model takes advantage of the flexibility of DWPT decomposition to closely approximate the critical bands and provides precise masking thresholds, resulting in increased extent of inaudible spectrum and reduction of sum to signal masking ratio (SSMR) compared to the existing competing techniques. The proposed psychoacoustic model has direct applications to digital perceptual audio coding as well as digital audio watermarking.

For digital perceptual audio coding, the greater extent of inaudible spectrum provided by the psychoacoustic model results more audio samples to be quantized to zero, leading to a decreased compression bit rate. The reduction of SSMR on the other hand, allows a coarser quantization step, which further cuts the necessary bits for audio representation in the audible spectrum areas. In other words, the audio compressed with the proposed digital perceptual codec achieves better subjective quality than an existing coding standard when operating at the same information rate, which is proven by the subjective listening test.
