Title (EN) ADAPTIVE QUANTIZATION
(FR) QUANTIFICATION ADAPTATIVE
Abstract:
(EN) An importance metric, based at least in part on an energy metric, may be determined for each of a plurality of received audio objects. Some methods may involve: determining a global importance metric for all of the audio objects, based, at least in part, on a total energy value calculated by summing the energy metric of each of the audio objects; determining an estimated quantization bit depth and a quantization error for each of the audio objects; calculating a total noise metric for all of the audio objects, the total noise metric being based, at least in part, on a total quantization error corresponding with the estimated quantization bit depth; calculating a total signal-to-noise ratio corresponding with the total noise metric and the total energy value; and determining a final quantization bit depth for each of the audio objects by applying a signal-to-noise ratio threshold to the total signal-to-noise ratio.
(FR) L'invention concerne une métrique d'importance basée, au moins en partie, sur une métrique d'énergie, qui peut être déterminée pour chacun d'une pluralité d'objets audio reçus. Certains procédés peuvent consister : à déterminer une métrique d'importance globale pour tous les objets audio sur la base, au moins en partie, d'une valeur d'énergie totale calculée en additionnant la métrique d'énergie de chacun des objets audio ; à déterminer une profondeur de bit de quantification estimée et une erreur de quantification pour chacun des objets audio ; à calculer une métrique de bruit totale pour tous les objets audio, la métrique de bruit totale étant basée, au moins en partie, sur une erreur de quantification totale correspondant à la profondeur de bit de quantification estimée ; à calculer un rapport signal sur bruit total correspondant à la métrique de bruit totale et la valeur d'énergie totale ; et à déterminer une profondeur de bit de quantification finale pour chacun des objets audio par application d'un seuil de rapport signal sur bruit au rapport signal sur bruit total.
