|MPEG-4 Audio Lossless Coding
|Lossless coding will become the latest extension of the MPEG-4 audio standard. The lossless audio codec of the Technical University of Berlin was chosen as reference model for MPEG-4 Audio Lossless Coding (ALS). The MPEG-4 ALS encoder is based on linear prediction, which enables high compression even with moderate complexity, while the corresponding decoder is straightforward. The paper describes the basic elements of the codec as well as some additional features, gives compression results, and points out envisaged applications.
