Measuring the Quality of Speech and Music Codecs, an Integrated Psychoacoustic Approach

98th AES Convention, Paris 1995, Preprint #3945

In literature there is a large amount of information on how to measure the quality of speech codecs and some information on how to measure the quality of music codecs. There is however no information on perceptual quality measures which can be used for both narrowband speech and broadband music codecs. In this contribution it will be shown that it is possible to use the same psychoacoustic sound representation for measuring both the quality of speech and music codecs. Only the cognitive interpretation of the psychoacoustic sound representations will be different.
