Drew 건국대학교 인터넷미디어공학부 임 창 훈**Outline**6.1 Digitization of Sound 6.2 MIDI (skip) 6.3 Quantization and Transmission of Audio 6.3.2 Pulse Code Modulation 6.3.3 Differential Coding of Audio 6.3.4 Lossless Predictive Coding 6.3.5 DPCM 6.3.6 DM Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**6.1 Digitization of Sound**• Sound is a wave phenomenon like light. • Digitization means conversion to a stream of numbers, and preferably these numbers should be integers for efficiency. • Fig. 6.1 shows the 1-dimensional nature of sound: amplitude values depend on a 1D variable, time. • Images depend instead on a 2D set of variables, x and y. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Fig. 6.1: An analog signal: continuous measurement of**pressure wave. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Digitization**• To digitize, the signal must be sampled in each dimension: in time, and in amplitude. • The first kind of sampling, using measurements only at evenly spaced time intervals, is simply called, sampling. • The rate at which it is performed is called the • sampling frequency. • For audio, typical sampling rates are from 8 kHz (8,000 samples per second) to 48 kHz. This range is determined by Nyquist theorem. • Sampling in the amplitude dimension is called quantization. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Fig. 6.2: Sampling and Quantization.**(a): Sampling the analog signal in the time dimension. (b): Quantization is sampling the analog signal in the amplitude dimension. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Digitization**• To decide how to digitize audio data we need to answer the following questions: • What is the sampling rate? • How finely is the data to be quantized? • Is quantization uniform? • How is audio data formatted? (file format) Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Nyquist Theorem**• Signals can be decomposed into a sum of sinusoids. • Fig. 6.3 shows how weighted sinusoids can build up quite a complex signal. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Fig. 6.3: Building up a complex signal by superposing**sinusoids. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Nyquist Theorem**• The Nyquist theorem states how frequently we must sample in time to be able to recover the original sound. • Fig. 6.4(a) shows a single sinusoid: it is a single frequency • If sampling rate just equals the actual frequency, • Fig. 6.4(b) shows that a false signal is detected: • it is simply a constant, with zero frequency. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Nyquist Theorem**• If sample at 1.5 times the actual frequency, Fig. 6.4(c) shows that we obtain an incorrect (alias) frequency that is lower than the correct one. • For correct sampling, we must use a sampling rate equal to at least twice the maximum frequency content in the signal. This rate is called the Nyquist rate. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Fig. 6.4: Aliasing. (a): A single frequency.**(b): Sampling at exactly the frequency produces a constant. (c): Sampling at 1.5 times per cycle produces an alias perceived frequency. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Nyquist Theorem**• Nyquist Theorem: If a signal is band-limited, i.e., there is a lower limit f1 and an upper limit f2 of frequency components in the signal, then the sampling rate should be at least 2(f2 − f1). • Nyquist frequency: half of the Nyquist rate. • Since it would be impossible to recover frequencies higher than Nyquist frequency in any event, most systems have an antialiasing filter that restricts the frequency content in the input to the sampler to a range at or below Nyquist frequency. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Nyquist Theorem**• The relationship among the sampling frequency, • true frequency, and the alias frequency is as follows: • falias = fsampling − ftrue, • for ftrue < fsampling < 2×ftrue Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR)**• The ratio of the power of the correct signal and the noise is called the signal to noise ratio (SNR) - a measure of the quality of the signal. • The SNR is usually measured in decibels (dB) • The SNR value, in units of dB, is defined in terms of base-10 logarithms of squared voltages: Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**6.3 Quantization and Transmission of Audio**• Coding of Audio: quantization and transformation of data are collectively known as coding of the data. • Differences in signals between the present and a past time can reduce the size of signal values and also concentrate the histogram of pixel values into a much smaller range. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**The result of reducing the variance of values is that**• lossless compression methods produce a bitstream • with shorter bit lengths for more likely values • In general, producing quantized sampled output for audio is called PCM (Pulse Code Modulation). • The differences version is called DPCM(and a crude but efficient variant is called DM). • The adaptive version is called ADPCM. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Pulse Code Modulation**• The basic techniques for creating digital signals from analog signals are sampling and quantization. • Quantization consists of selecting breakpoints (boundary levels) in magnitude, and then re-mapping any value within an interval to one of the representative output levels. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Fig. 6.2: Sampling and Quantization.**Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Pulse Code Modulation**• The set of interval boundaries are called decision boundaries, and the representative values are called reconstruction levels. • The boundaries for quantizer input intervals that will all be mapped into the same output level form a coder mapping. • The representative values that are the output values from a quantizer are decoder mapping. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Every compression scheme has three stages:**• The input data is transformed to a new representation that is easier or more efficient to compress. 2. We may introduce loss of information. Quantizationis the main lossy step → we use a limited number of reconstruction levels, fewer than in the original signal. 3. (Lossless) Coding. Assign a codeword (thus forming a binary bitstream) to each output level or symbol. This could be a fixed-length code, or a variable length code such as Human coding (Chap. 7). Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**For audio signals, we first consider PCM for digitization.**• This leads to Lossless Predictive Coding as well as the DPCM scheme; both methods use differential coding. • As well, we look at the adaptive version, ADPCM, which can provide better compression. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Fig. 6.13: Pulse Code Modulation (PCM). (a) Original analog**signal and its corresponding PCM signals. (b) Decoded staircase signal. (c) Reconstructed signal after low-pass filtering. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Differential Coding of Audio**• Audio is often stored not in simple PCM but instead in a form that exploits differences - which are generally smaller numbers, so offer the possibility of using fewer bits to store. • If a time-dependent signal has some consistency over time (temporal redundancy), the difference signal will have a more peaked histogram, with a maximum around zero. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Differential Coding of Audio**• If we then go on to assign bit-string codewords to differences, we can assign short codes to prevalent values and long codewords to rarely occurring ones. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Lossless Predictive Coding**• For Predictive coding: simply means transmitting differences - predict the next sample as being equal to the current sample. • Predictive coding consists of finding differences, and transmitting these using a PCM system. (Predicted signal) (error signal) Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Lossless Predictive Coding**• Linear predictor function: function of a few of the previous values Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Fig. 6.15: Differencing concentrates the histogram.**• Digital speech signal. (b) Histogram of digital speech signal values. • (c) Histogram of digital speech signal differences. Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Lossless Predictive Coding**• Lossless predictive coding: the decoder produces the same signals as the original. • Predictor example Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Lossless Predictive Coding**• Explicit example Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**Fig. 6.16: Schematic diagram for predictive coding encoder**and decoder Li & Drew; 인터넷미디어공학부 임창훈**DPCM**• Differential PCM is exactly the same as Predictive Coding, except that it incorporates a quantizer step.
