Bitrate Detection for the AMR-WB Codec

The following speech samples are provided to illustrate speech coding effects of the AMR-WB codec at different bitrates.  For the single coded examples, the original speech signal was simply coded and decoded at the specified bitrate. For the tandem coded examples, the single coded signals were subject to a consecutive stage of coding and decoding.


Examples - Single coded

Bitrate   Male   Female
6.60 kbit/s    
12.65 kbit/s    
23.85 kbit/s    


Examples - Tandem coded

Bitrate   Male   Female
6.60 kbit/s, 6.60 kbit/s    
6.60 kbit/s, 12.65 kbit/s    
12.65 kbit/s, 12.65 kbit/s

New PhDs in the DSS Team

Since January this year we have two new PhD students in the team: Elke Warmerdam and Finn Spitz.

Elke is from Amsterdam and she works in the neurology department in the university hospital in the group of Prof. Maetzler. Her research topic is movement analysis of patients with neurologic disorders. Elke cooperates with us in signal processing related aspects of her research. Elke plays ...
