Proposed modifications in ITU-T G.729 8 kbps CS-ACELP speech codec and its overall performance analysis

Proposed modifications in ITU-T G.729 8 kbps CS-ACELP speech codec and its overall performance... This paper proposes modification in the transmission of excitation codevector and its non-zero pulse sign magnitude using “codebook partition and label assignment” approach, which in turn reduces the number of bits required to transmit it through the communication channel in legacy CS-ACELP 8 kbps speech codec. The proposed approach uses the excitation codebook structure of forward mode standard G.729E 11.8 kbps with two non-zero pulses per track which avoids the use of two algebraic codebook structure for forward mode as well as for backward mode of G.729E with least significant pulse replacement approach for finding optimized excitation codevector. Proposed modification in legacy 8 kbps CS-ACELP (80 bits/10 ms) speech codec actuates the bit rate of 10.6 kbps (106 bits/10 ms) with a better objective and subjective analysis in stark contrast with legacy 8 kbps CS-ACELP speech coder and also avoids the switching of codebook modes of standard 11.8 kbps (G.729E) CS-ACELP speech coder. This paper also aims to propose the reduction in the number of searches in the final codevector of excitation structure by considering initial codevector as a final codevector which improves the quality of the speech compared to the output speech quality of legacy G.729 CS-ACELP working at 8 kbps. Both legacy CS-ACELP 8 kbps speech codec and proposed CS-ACELP 10.6 kbps are implemented in MATLAB. Subjective and objective analysis are carried out on a proposed CS-ACELP 10.6 kbps speech codec in order to evaluate its performance and the results obtained are then cross- compared with the results of legacy CS-ACELP (8 kbps) using set of tables and graphs. It is evident from obtained results that both PESQ and MOS scores are quite comparable for each set of wave files even though bitrates are reduced. Consistency and efficiency of proposed algorithm is assured by calculating the population mean of 95% confidence interval based on obtained objective and subjective parameter results. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Speech Technology Springer Journals

Abstract

This paper proposes modification in the transmission of excitation codevector and its non-zero pulse sign magnitude using “codebook partition and label assignment” approach, which in turn reduces the number of bits required to transmit it through the communication channel in legacy CS-ACELP 8 kbps speech codec. The proposed approach uses the excitation codebook structure of forward mode standard G.729E 11.8 kbps with two non-zero pulses per track which avoids the use of two algebraic codebook structure for forward mode as well as for backward mode of G.729E with least significant pulse replacement approach for finding optimized excitation codevector. Proposed modification in legacy 8 kbps CS-ACELP (80 bits/10 ms) speech codec actuates the bit rate of 10.6 kbps (106 bits/10 ms) with a better objective and subjective analysis in stark contrast with legacy 8 kbps CS-ACELP speech coder and also avoids the switching of codebook modes of standard 11.8 kbps (G.729E) CS-ACELP speech coder. This paper also aims to propose the reduction in the number of searches in the final codevector of excitation structure by considering initial codevector as a final codevector which improves the quality of the speech compared to the output speech quality of legacy G.729 CS-ACELP working at 8 kbps. Both legacy CS-ACELP 8 kbps speech codec and proposed CS-ACELP 10.6 kbps are implemented in MATLAB. Subjective and objective analysis are carried out on a proposed CS-ACELP 10.6 kbps speech codec in order to evaluate its performance and the results obtained are then cross- compared with the results of legacy CS-ACELP (8 kbps) using set of tables and graphs. It is evident from obtained results that both PESQ and MOS scores are quite comparable for each set of wave files even though bitrates are reduced. Consistency and efficiency of proposed algorithm is assured by calculating the population mean of 95% confidence interval based on obtained objective and subjective parameter results.
