Educational Objectives:

After attending the lecture and solving the homework assignments, the students should be able to have enough basic understanding of high quality audio coding to implement encoders and decoders or participate in ongoing research in the area.

Selection of Topics:

In depth introduction into coding of high quality audio signals. The lecture series comprises of three major parts:

- First, an introduction into the main algorithms used in high quality audio coding (filterbank, psychoacoustic model, quantization and coding)

- Second, an introduction into some of the most used formats for high quality audio coding with an emphasis on the MPEG Audio standards (MPEG-1 including MP3, MPEG-2 including AAC, MPEG-4 including HeAAC)

- Third, current research topics and specialized audio coding formats like lossless coding, very low delay coding, parametric coding etc.
