Abstract:

This report describes the design and development of a real-time adaptive transform coder that transmits high-quality speech over a 9600 bps channel with bit-error rates of up to 1 without significant loss of speech fidelity. The report presents the results of our FORTRAN simulations on the adaptive transform coder which maximized the quality of the transmitted speech. Important aspects of the ATC algorithm which are optimized were specification and transmission of the side-band information, accuracy of the pitch and voicing decisions, and error-protection of the important transmission parameters. Also included is the system design, detailed documentation, and program listings of the MAP-300 real-time implementation of the optimized ATC speech coder. Finally, the report includes a description of analog equipment GTE built to interface the MAP-300 to telephone handsets and tape recorders and a description of digital circuits RS 423 compatible to interface the MAP-300 to a modem. This report is bound in two volumes. Volume I contains a description of the ATC system and the results of the FORTRAN simulations. Volume II contains all the information on the real-time system including documentation for implementing the ATC system on the MAP, listing of the MAP software, and documentation for the hardware built by GTE.
