    Efficient Binaural Rendering of Spatially Extended Sound Sources
    Journal of the Audio Engineering Society, 71: 281–292, 2023. DOI
    @article{faucris.304158508,
    abstract = {In virtual/augmented reality or 3D applications with binaural audio, it is often desired to render sound sources with a certain spatial extent in a realistic way. A common approach is to distribute multiple correlated or decorrelated point sources over the desired spatial extent range, possibly derived from the original source signal by applying suitable decorrelation filters. Based on this basic model, a novel method for efficient and realistic binaural rendering of spatially extended sound sources is proposed. Instead of rendering each point source individually, the target auditory cues are synthesized directly from just two decorrelated input signals. This procedure comes with the advantage of low computational complexity and relaxed requirements for decorrelation filters. An objective evaluation shows that the proposed method matches the basic rendering model well in terms of perceptually relevant objective metrics. A subjective listening test shows, furthermore, that the output of the proposed method is perceptually almost identical to the output of the basic rendering model. The technique is part of the Reference Model architecture of the upcoming MPEG-I Immersive Audio standard.

    MPEG Standards for Compressed Representation of Immersive Audio
    Proceedings of the IEEE, 109: 1578–1589, 2021. DOI
    @article{faucris.264069480,
    abstract = {The term "immersive audio" is frequently used to describe an audio experience that provides the listener the sensation of being fully immersed or "present" in a sound scene. This can be achieved via different presentation modes, such as surround sound (several loudspeakers horizontally arranged around the listener), 3D audio (with loudspeakers at, above, and below listener ear level), and binaural audio to headphones. This article provides an overview of two recent standards that support the bitrate-efficient carriage of high-quality immersive sound. The first is MPEG-H 3D audio, which is a versatile standard that supports multiple immersive sound signal formats (channels, objects, and higher order ambisonics) and is now being adopted in broadcast and streaming applications. The second is MPEG-I immersive audio, an extension of 3D audio, currently under development, which is targeted for virtual and augmented reality applications. This will support rendering of fully user-interactive immersive sound for three degrees of user movement [three degrees of freedom (3DoF)], i.e., yaw, pitch, and roll head movement, and for six degrees of user movement [six degrees of freedom (6DoF)], i.e., 3DoF plus translational x, y, and z user position movements.},

    Objective Measures of Perceptual Audio Quality Reviewed: An Evaluation of Their Application Domain Dependence
    IEEE/ACM Transactions on Audio, Speech and Language Processing, 28: 1530–1541, 2021. DOI
    @article{faucris.258802810,
    abstract = {Over the past few decades, computational methods have been developed to estimate perceptual audio quality. These methods, also referred to as objective quality measures, are usually developed and intended for a specific application domain. Because of their convenience, they are often used outside their original intended domain, even if it is unclear whether they provide reliable quality estimates in this case. This work studies the correlation of well-known state-of-the-art objective measures with human perceptual scores in two different domains: audio coding and source separation. The following objective measures are considered: fwSNRseg, dLLR, PESQ, PEAQ, POLQA, PEMO-Q, ViSQOLAudio, (SI-)BSSEval, PEASS, LKR-PI, 2f-model, and HAAQI. Additionally, a novel measure (SI-SA2f) is presented, based on the 2f-model and a BSSEval-based signal decomposition. We use perceptual scores from 7 listening tests about audio coding and 7 listening tests about source separation as ground-truth data for the correlation analysis. The results show that one method (2f-model) performs significantly better than the others on both domains and indicate that the dataset for training the method and a robust underlying auditory model are crucial factors towards a universal, domain-independent objective measure.},

    Source separation for enabling dialogue enhancement in object-based broadcast with MPEG-H
    Journal of the Audio Engineering Society, 67: 510–521, 2019. DOI

    abstract = {Dialogue Enhancement (DE) is one of the most promising applications of user interactivity enabled by object-based audio broadcasting. DE allows personalization of the relative level of dialogue for intelligibility or aesthetic reasons. This paper discusses the implementation of DE in object-based audio transport with MPEG-H, with a special focus on source separation methods enabling DE also for legacy content without original objects available. The user-benefit of DE is assessed using the Adjustment/Satisfaction Test methodology. The test results demonstrate the need for an individually adjustable dialogue level because of highly-varying personal preferences. The test also investigates the subjective quality penalty from using source separation for obtaining the objects. The results show that even an imperfect separation result can successfully enable DE leading to increased end-user satisfaction.},

    The Adjustment/Satisfaction Test (A/ST) for the Evaluation of Personalization in Broadcast Services and its Application to Dialogue Enhancement
    IEEE Transactions on Broadcasting, 64: 1–15, 2018. DOI
    @article{faucris.289413398,
    abstract = {Media consumption in broadcasting is heading towards high degrees of content personalization also in audio thanks to next-generation audio systems. It is thus crucial to assess the benefit of personalized media delivery. To this end, the adjustment/satisfaction test was recently proposed. This is a perceptual test where subjects interact with a user-adjustable system and their adjustments and the resulting satisfaction levels are studied. Two configurations of this test paradigm are implemented and compared for the evaluation of Dialogue Enhancement (DE). This is an advanced broadcast service which enables the personalization of the relative level of the dialog and the background sounds. The test configuration closer to the final application is found to provide less noisy data and to be more conclusive about the quality of experience. For this configuration, DE is tested both in the case in which the original audio objects are readily available and in the case in which they are estimated by blind source separation. The results show that personalization is extensively used, resulting in increased user satisfaction, in both cases.},

    webMUSHRA - A Comprehensive Framework for Web-based Listening Tests
    Journal of Open Research Software, 6 (1): 8, 2018. DOI
    @article{faucris.227085502,
    abstract = {For a long time, many popular listening test methods, such as ITU-R
    BS.1534 (MUSHRA), could not be carried out as web-based listening tests,
    since established web standards did not support all required audio
    processing features. With the standardization of the Web Audio API, the
    required features became available and, therefore, also the possibility
    to implement a wide range of established methods as web-based listening
    tests. In order to simplify the implementation of MUSHRA listening
    tests, the development of webMUSHRA was started. By utilizing webMUSHRA,
    experimenters can configure web-based MUSHRA listening tests without
    the need of web programming expertise. Today, webMUSHRA supports many

    Evaluation of Spatial/3D Audio: Basic Audio Quality Versus Quality of Experience
    IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing, 11: 75–88, 2017. DOI
    @article{faucris.289414406,
    abstract = {During the past decades, spatial reproduction of audio signals has evolved from simple two-channel stereo to surround sound (e.g., 5.1 or 7.1) and, more recently, to three-dimensional (3D) sound including height speakers, such as 9.1 or 22.2. With increasing number of speakers, increasing spatial fidelity and listener envelopment are expected. This paper reviews popular methods for subjective assessment of audio. Moreover, it provides an experimental evaluation of the subjective quality provided by these formats, contrasting the well-known basic audio quality (BAQ) type of evaluation with the more recent evaluation of overall listening experience (OLE). Commonalities and differences in findings between both assessment approaches are discussed. The results of the evaluation indicate that 3D audio enhances BAQ as well as OLE over both stereo and surround sound. Furthermore, the BAQ- and OLE-based assessments turned out to deliver consistent and reliable results.},

    On Similarity and Density of Applause Sounds
    Journal of the Audio Engineering Society, 65: 897–913, 2017. DOI
    @article{faucris.289413899,
    abstract = {Applause is the result of people showing their appreciation after a performance by clapping their hands. Applause ranges from very sparse sounds with well-distinguishable individual claps for small crowds to extremely dense and almost noise-like sounds for very large crowds. While commonly used perceptual attributes like loudness, pitch, and timbre seem insufficient to characterize different types of applause, "density" was recently introduced and found to be an important perceptual attribute for characterizing applause sounds. This paper provides an in-depth analysis of applause perception regarding density. In particular, in a first experiment perceived applause density was evaluated and its dependency on spectral equalization was assessed. Then, the contribution of perceived density on the perceived similarity of different applause sounds was investigated in a second experiment. Statistical analyses of the experimental data suggest that spectral equalization has no statistically significant effect on density and only a small but significant effect on similarity perception. A linear mixed effects model fitted to the experimental data revealed that perceived density differences as well as spectral equalization significantly predict applause similarity, whereby density differences were found to be the dominating factor. This confirms that perceived density is indeed a key feature for characterization of applause sounds.},

    The relationship between basic audio quality and overall listening experience

    @article{faucris.289415387,
    abstract = {Basic audio quality (BAQ) is a well-known perceptual attribute, which is rated in various listening test methods to measure the performance of audio systems. Unfortunately, when it comes to purchasing audio systems, BAQ might not have a significant influence on the customers' buying decisions since other factors, like brand loyalty, might be more important. In contrast to BAQ, overall listening experience (OLE) is an affective attribute which incorporates all aspects that are important to an individual assessor, including his or her preference for music genre and audio quality. In this work, the relationship between BAQ and OLE is investigated in more detail. To this end, an experiment was carried out, in which participants rated the BAQ and the OLE of music excerpts with different timbral and spatial degradations. In a between-group-design procedure, participants were assigned into two groups, in each of which a different set of stimuli was rated. The results indicate that rating of both attributes, BAQ and OLE, leads to similar rankings, even if a different set of stimuli is rated. In contrast to the BAQ ratings, which were more influenced by timbral than spatial degradations, the OLE ratings were almost equally influenced by timbral and spatial degradations.},

    MPEG Surround - The ISO/MPEG Standard for Efficient and Compatible Multichannel Audio Coding
    Journal of the Audio Engineering Society, 56, No. 11: 932–955, 2008.
    @article{faucris.313119557,
    abstract = {Finalized in 2006, the MPEG Surround specification enables the transmission of multichannel audio signals at data rates close to those of one- and two-channel systems. This paper describes the technical architecture and capabilities of the specification. Verification tests include several operational modes as they would be used in typical application scenarios. In order to achieve backward compatibility with legacy devices that are not compliant with MPEG Surround, the spatial side information is embedded in either an ancillary part of the downmix bit stream or in a separate stream. This approach is vastly superior to a matrixed system at the comparable data rates.

    well-known MPEG-4 AAC perceptual audio coder up to fully lossless reconstruction at word
    lengths and sampling rates typically used for high-resolution audio. The underlying innova-

Especially at low bit rates, coding (and the associated coding noise) leads to smeared transients and a perceived increase in noise-like signal character. We propose a post-processing technique for coded/decoded applause-like signals which is based on a signal decomposition into foreground (transient) clap events and a more noise-like background part. The proposed method aims at restoring the transient-To-noise ratio of the decoded signal using a static frequency-dependent restoration profile. The method is shown to provide a significant improvement in subjective audio quality (MUSHRA score) when applied to signals originating from a state-of-The-Art audio codec in different configurations.},

Usually, applause signals are recorded together or alongside with the live performance and serve to evoke the feeling of participation in a real event within the playback recipient. Applause signals can be very different in character, depending on the audience size, location, event type, and many other factors. To characterize different types of applause signals, the attribute of 'density' appears to be suitable. This paper reports first investigations whether density is an adequate perceptual attribute to describe different types of applause. We describe the design of a listening test assessing density and the synthesis of suitable, strictly controlled stimuli for the test. Finally, we provide results, both on strictly controlled and on naturally recorded stimuli, that confirm the suitability of the attribute density to describe important aspects of the perception of different applause signal characteristics.},

    Calculation of Directivity Patterns from Spherical Microphone Array Recordings

In order to quantify this direction-dependent behavior, usually so-called directivity patterns are used. This paper investigates two different methods that can be used to calculate directivity patterns from spherical microphone array recordings. A comparison between both calculation methods is performed based on the resulting directivity patterns. Furthermore, the directivity patterns of several musical instruments are analyzed and important measures are extracted. For all calculations, the publicly available anechoic microphone array measurements database recorded at the Technical University Berlin (TU Berlin) was used.},

    Investigations on the Influence of Combined Inter-Aural Cue Distortions in Overall Audio Quality
    In DAGA 2019 - 45. Jahrestagung für Akustik: 907–910, 2019.
    @inproceedings{faucris.243628150,

    predict audio quality of perceptually coded signals to avoid the cost of
    extensive listening tests during development time. While many
    established algorithms for predicting the perceived quality of signals
    with monaural (timbral) distortions are available (PEAQ, POLQA),
    predicting the quality degradation of stereo and multi-channel spatial
    signals is still considered a challenge. Audio quality degradation
    arising from spatial distortions is usually measured in terms of well
    known inter-aural cue distortion measures such as Inter-aural Level
    Difference Distortions (ILDD), Inter-aural Time Difference Distortions
    (ITDD) and Inter-aural Cross Correlation Distortions (IACCD). However,
    the extent to which their interaction influences the overall audio
    quality degradation in complex signals as expressed - for example - in a
    multiple stimuli test is not yet thoroughly studied. We propose a
    systematic approach that introduces controlled combinations of spatial
    distortions on a representative set of signals and evaluates their
    influence on overall perceived quality degradation by analyzing
    listening test scores over said signals. From this study we derive
    guidelines for designing meaningful distortion measures that consider
    inter-aural cue distortion interaction},

In the experiment, thirty participants rated the overall listening experience of music excerpts while sitting in a cinema and a listening booth being in a real-world environment and in a VR environment. In addition, the VR system that was used to carry out the sessions in the VR environment is presented in detail. Results indicate that there are only minor statistically significant differences between the two environments when the overall listening experience is rated. Furthermore, in the real-world environment, the ratings given in the listening booth were slightly higher than in the cinema.},

    Re-Panning of Directional Signals and its Impact on Localization

    abstract = {For multichannel audio reproduction systems, it is crucial to set up the speakers correctly according to the multichannel format's specification. Especially, the predefined angle of every speaker with respect to the listening position must be strictly kept to avoid spatial distortions of virtual sources, the so called phantom sources. In a normal living room environment, a specification compliant setup is usually not possible. This means, the resulting audio scene may differ heavily from the originally intended scene, i.e., the phantom sources' positions change. To mitigate these spatial distortions, we propose a re-panning method of directional signals. The method groups pairs of adjacent loudspeakers into segments, analyses the direction of arrivals (DOAs) within each segment by means of a direct-ambience decomposition and re-renders the direct components with respect to the actual reproduction setup. The re-panning method was perceptually evaluated by means of a localization listening test.},

    Towards a Listener Model for Predicting the Overall Listening Experience
    In Proceedings of the 9th Audio Mostly: A Conference on Interaction With Sound, 2014. DOI
    @inproceedings{faucris.203703046,
    abstract = {Listeners have different preferences when it comes to rating the overall listening experience while listening to music. Therefore, a listener model for predicting the overall listening experience must consider sensory, perceptual, cognitive and psychological aspects rather than solely rely on perception-based attributes (e. g. audio quality) of the music signal. In this work, a generic model framework is defined for modeling a listener while taking part in an auditory experiment. In addition, a subset of the model is used to describe algorithms for predicting the overall listening experience based on experimental results. Thereby, the results of two experiments are utilized to define a prediction algorithm for the cases of bandwidth-degradation stimuli and playback by different reproduction systems.},

On such websites, the audio quality of these music videos can differ from poor to very good since the content is uploaded by users. The results of a previous study indicated that music videos are very popular in general among the users. This paper addresses the question whether the audio quality of music videos has an influence on user ratings. A generic system for measuring the audio quality on video-sharing websites is described. The system has been implemented and was deployed for evaluating the relationship between audio quality and video ratings on YouTube. The analysis of the results indicate that, contrary to popular expectation, the audio quality of music videos has surprisingly little influence on its appreciation by the YouTube user.},

      Can we still use PEAQ? A Performance Analysis of the ITU Standard for the Objective Assessment of Perceived Audio Quality

      @inproceedings{faucris.243625659,
      abstract = {The Perceptual Evaluation of Audio Quality (PEAQ) method as described in
      the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) recommendation ITU-R
      BS.1387 has been widely used for computationally estimating the quality
      of perceptually coded audio signals without the need for extensive
      subjective listening tests. However, many reports have highlighted clear
      limitations of the scheme after the end of its standardization,
      particularly involving signals coded with newer technologies such as
      bandwidth extension or parametric multi-channel coding. Until now, no
      other method for measuring the quality of both speech and audio signals
      has been standardized by the ITU. Therefore, a further investigation of
      the causes for these limitations would be beneficial to a possible
      update of said scheme. Our experimental results indicate that the
      performance of PEAQ’s model of disturbance loudness is still as good as
      (and sometimes superior to) other state-of-the-art objective measures,
      albeit with varying performance depending on the type of degraded signal
      content (i.e. speech or music). This finding evidences the need for an
      improved cognitive model. In addition, results indicate that an updated
      mapping of Model Output Values (MOVs) to PEAQ’s Distortion Index (DI)

A system that accurately and reliably predicts quality scores obtained by time-consuming listening tests can be of great advantage in saving resources, for instance, in the evaluation of parametric spatial audio codecs. Most of the solutions so far work with individual comparisons of distortions of inter-channel cues across time and frequency, known to correlate to distortions in the evoked spatial image of the subject listener. We propose a scene analysis method that considers signal loudness distributed across estimations of perceived source directions on the horizontal plane. The calculation of distortion features in the directional loudness domain (as opposed to the time-frequency domain) seems to provide equal or better correlation with subjectively perceived quality degradation than previous methods, as confirmed by experiments with an extensive database of parametric audio codec listening tests. We investigate the effect of a number of design alternatives (based on psychoacoustic principles) on the overall prediction performance of the associated quality measurement system.},

      abstract = {Recently, the MPEG Audio standardization group has successfully concluded the standardization process on technology for lossless coding of audio signals. This paper provides a summary of the Scalable Lossless Coding (SLS) technology as one of the results of this standardization work. MPEG-4 Scalable Lossless Coding provides a fine-grain scalable lossless extension of the well-known MPEG-4 AAC perceptual audio coder up to fully lossless reconstruction at word lengths and sampling rates typically used for high-resolution audio. The underlying innovative technology is described in detail and its performance is characterized for lossless and near-lossless representation, both in conjunction with an AAC coder and as a stand-alone compression engine. A number of application scenarios for the new technology are discussed finally.},

      abstract = {This papers presents an embedded fine grain scalable perceptual and lossless audio coding scheme. The enabling technology for this combined perceptual and lossless audio coding approach is the Integer Modified Discrete Cosine Transform (IntMDCT), which is an integer approximation of the MDCT based on the lifting scheme. It maintains the perfect reconstruction property and therefore enables efficient lossless coding in the frequency domain. The close approximation of the MDCT also allows to build a perceptual coding scheme based on the IntMDCT. In this paper a bitsliced arithmetic coding technique is applied to the IntMDCT values. Together with the encoded shape of the masking threshold a perceptually hierarchical bitstream is obtained, containing several stages of perceptual quality and extending to lossless operation when transmitted completely. A concept of encoding subslices is presented in order to obtain a fine adaptation to the masking threshold especially in the range of perceptually transparent quality.},

We conducted subjective listening experiments to determine the masking thresholds for ‘tone-masking-noise’ conditions when masker (1 kHz sine tone) and probe (1 kHz narrow band noise) are spatially distributed, using an immersive 22.2 loudspeaker setup. Our results show masking thresholds in the range of -35 dB to -26 dB probe-to-masker-ratio. As expected, least masking was found between left/right opposed sources with up to 5 dB lower than for coincident sources. Other noteworthy observations included an increase of masking for certain elevations and cases of selective masking decrease due to interaural phase difference phenomena.},

      Predicting the Precision of Elevation Localization Based on Head Related Transfer Functions

      abstract = {While the human hearing capability for horizontally localized sound sources is mostly based on binaural cues, the localization of elevation along the »cones of confusion» can only rely on spectral cues provided by the directionality of head related transfer functions (HRTF). This paper explores how the magnitude of spectral differences between HRTF affects the availability of spectral cues to perceive and detect different elevations and hence limits localization accuracy. A method to predict localization accuracy is presented, based on analysis of the gradient of HRTF log-spectral differences for elevation positional changes. To this end, the localization accuracy is estimated from an HRTF database with 45 subjects. Validation of the results shows good agreement with results from subjective localization experiments reported in literature.},

This work aims at quantifying this observation and predicting the perceived level of late reverberation based on separate signal paths of direct and reverberant signals, as they appear in digital audio effects. A basic approach to the problem is developed and subsequently extended by considering the impact of the reverberation time on the prediction result. This leads to a linear regression model with two input variables which is able to predict the perceived level with high accuracy, as shown on experimental data derived from listening tests. Variations of this model with different degrees of sophistication and computational complexity are compared regarding their accuracy. Applications include the control of digital audio effects for automatic mixing of audio signals. © 2011 IEEE.},

      Interactive Teleconferencing Combining Spatial Audio Object Coding and DirAC Technology
      In 128nd AES Convention: 1579–1590, 2010.
      @inproceedings{faucris.108839544,
      abstract = {The importance of telecommunication continues to grow in our everyday lives. An ambitious goal for developers is to provide a most natural way of audio communication by giving users the impression of being located next to each other. MPEG Spatial Audio Object Coding (SAOC) is a technology for coding, transmitting, and interactively reproducing spatial sound scenes on any conventional multi-loudspeaker setup (e.g. ITU 5.1). This paper describes how Directional Audio Coding (DirAC) can be used as a recording front-end for SAOC based teleconference systems to capture acoustic scenes and to extract the individual objects (talkers). By introducing a novel DirAC to SAOC parameter transcoder, a highly efficient way of combining both technologies is presented which enables interactive, object-based spatial teleconferencing.},

      MPEG Spatial Audio Object Coding – The ISO/MPEG Standard for Efficient Coding of Interactive Audio Scenes
      In 129th Audio Engineering Society Convention: 557–575, 2010.
      @inproceedings{faucris.108816884,
      abstract = {In 2007, the ISO/MPEG Audio standardization group started a new work item on efficient coding of sound scenes comprising several audio objects by parametric coding techniques. Finalized in the summer of 2010, the resulting MPEG 'Spatial Audio Object Coding' (SAOC) specification allows the representation of such scenes at bit rates commonly used for coding of mono or stereo sound. At the decoder side, each object can be interactively rendered, supporting applications like user-controlled music remixing and spatial teleconferencing. This paper summarizes the results of the standardization process, provides an overview of MPEG SAOC technology and illustrates its performance by means of the results of the recent verification tests. The test includes operation modes for several typical application scenarios that take advantage of object-based processing.},

      Acoustic Echo Cancellation for Surround Sound Using Perceptually Motivated Convergence Enhancement
      In 2007 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing, ICASSP '07, 2007. DOI
      @inproceedings{faucris.121774884,
      abstract = {Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) has become an essential and wellknown enabling technology for hands-free communication and human-machine interfaces. AEC for two or more reproduction channels aims at identifying the echo paths between the microphone and each audio reproduction source in order to cancel the associated echo contribution. A number of preprocessing methods have been proposed to decorrelate stereo audio signals in order to enable an unambiguous identification of each echo path and to thus ensure robustness to changing sound source locations. While several of these methods provide enough decorrelation to achieve proper AEC convergence in the stereo case, considerations of subjective sound quality have frequently not been addressed adequately. This paper compares the performance of several methods in terms of both convergence speed and aspects of sound perception, and proposes a novel signal decorrelation approach with attractive properties. The superior performance of the proposed method is demonstrated for 5.1 surround sound reproduction. © 2007 IEE},

      New High Data Rate Audio Watermarking Based on SCS (Scaler Costa Scheme)
      In 113th AES Convention, 2002.
      @inproceedings{faucris.305593962,
      abstract = {Nowadays, distribution of audio material is not limited to physical media anymore. Instead, distribution via Internet is of increasing importance. In order to attach additional information to the audio content, either for forensic or digital rights management purposes or for annotation purposes, watermarking is a promising technique since it is independent of the audio format and transmission technology. State-of-the-art spread spectrum watermarking systems can offer high robustness against unintentional and intentional signal modifications. However, their data rate is typically comparatively low, often below 100 bit/s. This paper describes the adaptation of a new watermarking scheme called Scalar Costa Scheme (SCS), which is based on dithered quantization of audio signals. In order to fulfill the demands of high quality audio signal processing, modifications of the basic SCS scheme, such as the introduction of a psychoacoustic model and new algorithms to determine quantization intervals are required. Simulation figures and results of a sample implementation, which show the potential of this new watermarking scheme, are presented in this paper along with a short theoretical introduction to the SCS watermarking scheme.

      A Compatible Family of Bitstream Watermarking Schemes for MPEG-Audio
      In 110th AES Convention, 2001.
      @inproceedings{faucris.305595434,
      abstract = {Audio watermarking enables the robust and imperceptible transmission of data within audio signals. Among the many possible applications of this technique, a number of scenarios require direct embedding of watermarks into a compressed signal representation. Such bitstream watermarking systems enable e.g. on-the-fly embedding of transaction specific data at the time of content delivery via the Internet. This paper extends previous work on bitstream watermarking for MPEG-2/4 Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) towards a compatible family of watermarking schemes for MPEG-1/2 Layer-3 (MP3), MPEG-2/4 AAC and uncompressed audio. Regardless of the format used during data embedding, the same watermark extractor can be employed to recover the embedded message. Both the underlying concepts and relevant experimental results for these schemes are described.

      New Results on Combined Audio Compression/Watermarking
      In 111th AES Convention, 2001.
      @inproceedings{faucris.305594567,
      abstract = {Today, music distribution over the Internet is an increasingly important business. In this context, watermarking can provide beneficial means to transmit rights information within the content. To convey the origin of such content, the combination of simultaneous low bit rate encoding and watermark embedding is a promising novel technique. This paper describes the basic concept of combined compression/watermarking for audio signals. In contrast to separate steps of encoding and watermarking the combined approach enables an optimal coordination between the quantization strategy in the audio encoder and the watermark embedding process. This allows to adjust the system to specific needs in terms of audio quality and watermark robustness. Experimental results obtained from an extended MPEG-2/4 AAC encoder and a first implementation of an extended MPEG-1/2 Layer-3 encoder confirm the potential of the concept.
