This reference provides an in-depth discussion of the theory and application of lapped transforms (LTs). It explains how LTs can lead to a better complexity/performance trade-off than other transforms or filter bands used in signal processing. The text addresses the increased use LTs, especially with HDTV and how they may become the standard for high-quality audio coding.

The field of digital signal processing (DSP) has spurred developments from basic theory of discrete-time signals and processing tools to diverse applications in telecommunications, speech and acoustics, radar, and video. This volume provides an accessible reference, offering theoretical and practical information to the audience of DSP users. This immense compilation outlines both introductory and specialized aspects of information-bearing signals in digital form, creating a resource relevant to the expanding needs of the engineering community. It also explores the use of computers and special-purpose digital hardware in extracting information or transforming signals in advantageous ways. Impacted areas presented include: Telecommunications Computer engineering Acoustics Seismic data analysis DSP software and hardware Image and video processing Remote sensing Multimedia applications Medical technology Radar and sonar applications This authoritative collaboration, written by the foremost researchers and practitioners in their fields, comprehensively presents the range of DSP: from theory to application, from algorithms to hardware.
Now available in a three-volume set, this updated and expanded edition of the bestselling The Digital Signal Processing Handbook continues to provide the engineering community with authoritative coverage of the fundamental and specialized aspects of information-bearing signals in digital form. Encompassing essential background material, technical details, standards, and software, the second edition reflects cutting-edge information on signal processing algorithms and protocols related to speech, audio, multimedia, and video processing technology associated with standards ranging from WiMax to MP3 audio, low-power/high-performance DSPs, color image processing, and chips on video. Drawing on the experience of leading engineers, researchers, and scholars, the three-volume set contains 29 new chapters that address multimedia and Internet technologies, tomography, radar systems, architecture, standards, and future applications in speech, acoustics, video, radar, and telecommunications. Emphasizing theoretical concepts, Digital Signal Processing Fundamentals provides comprehensive coverage of the basic foundations of DSP and includes the following parts: Signals and Systems; Signal Representation and Quantization; Fourier Transforms; Digital Filtering; Statistical Signal Processing; Adaptive Filtering; Inverse Problems and Signal Reconstruction; and Time–Frequency and Multirate Signal Processing.
The HDTV workshops were established with the aim of aiding definition and fostering the introduction of HDTV. Their fundamental principle is the separation of the standardisation process from the technological development, with the workshops concentrating mainly on the latter. Over the past few years important steps towards actual implementation of HDTV have been made in the major countries. HDTV is now considered to be a strategic piece of applied research in virtually all countries of the world and in many environments there is mounting pressure to start up service and equipment manufacturing. The papers presented in this volume constitute a key contribution to the establishment of this giant step towards a fully fledged information society. Due to the extensive length of the contents, only the number of papers presented per session is listed below.
