Single-codebook vector quantization for multiple-rate applications

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #7587314.

This invention relates to a method, a device and a software application product for N-level quantization of vectors, wherein N is selectable prior to said quantization from a set of at least two pre-defined values that are smaller than or equal to a pre-defined maximum number of levels M. A reproduction vector for each vector is selected from an N-level codebook of N reproduction vectors that are, for each N in said set of at least two pre-defined values, represented by the first N reproduction vectors of the same joint codebook of M reproduction vectors. The invention further relates to a method, a device and a software application product for retrieving reproduction vectors for vectors that have been N-level quantized, to a system for transferring representations of vectors, to a method, a device and a software application product for determining a joint codebook, and to such a joint codebook itself.
