Description - Advances in Digital Speech Transmission by Rainer Martin

Speech processing and speech transmission technology are expanding fields of active research. New challenges arise from the 'anywhere, anytime' paradigm of mobile communications, the ubiquitous use of voice communication systems in noisy environments and the convergence of communication networks toward Internet based transmission protocols, such as Voice over IP. As a consequence, new speech coding, new enhancement and error concealment, and new quality assessment methods are emerging. Advances in Digital Speech Transmission provides an up-to-date overview of the field, including topics such as speech coding in heterogeneous communication networks, wideband coding, and the quality assessment of wideband speech. * Provides an insight into the latest developments in speech processing and speech transmission, making it an essential reference to those working in these fields* Offers a balanced overview of technology and applications* Discusses topics such as speech coding in heterogeneous communications networks, wideband coding, and the quality assessment of the wideband speech* Explains speech signal processing in hearing instruments and man-machine interfaces from applications point of view* Covers speech coding for Voice over IP, blind source separation, digital hearing aids and speech processing for automatic speech recognition Advances in Digital Speech Transmission serves as an essential link between the basics and the type of technology and applications (prospective) engineers work on in industry labs and academia. The book will also be of interest to advanced students, researchers, and other professionals who need to brush up their knowledge in this field.

Author Biography - Rainer Martin

Dr. Ing. Rainer Martin is a Professor of Information Technology at Ruhr University and Head of the Institute of Communication Acoustics, Bochum, Germany. His research interests are signal processing for voice communication systems, acoustics, and human-machine interfaces. He has worked on algorithms for noise reduction, acoustic echo cancellation, microphone arrays, and speech recognition. He is coauthor of the book Vary/Martin "Digital Speech Transmission", John Wiley, 2006. Ulrich Heute is a Professor for circuit and system theory at Christian-Albrechts University, Kiel. His research interests include digital signal processing, filters and filter banks, and spectral analysis, with applications in medical, audio, and, especially, speech-signal processing (combined source and channel coding, enhancement, modeling, speaker characterization, and instrumental quality assessment). Christiane Antweiler is a senior scientist at the Institute of Communication Systems and Data Processing of the RWTH Aachen University. Her interests are the design and implementation of digital signal and speech processing algorithms for real-time applications, and her special focus lies on speech coding for cellular mobile radio and the enhancement of digital speech signals. Furthermore she is interested in algorithms for system identification, in adaptive filter theory and in digital signal processing algorithms for medical diagnostics.
