Abstract

Polar Spectrum Coding is a novel speech coding algorithm for narrowband voice communications. A polar Fourier transform of the signal is computed, and the magnitude and phase of the speech spectrum is encoded for transmission. The correlation between frames of speech signals is exploited to minimize the transmission rate required for intelligible speech. At the receiver, the encoded words are decoded and the spectrum reconstructed. An inverse Fourier transform is performed, and the result is the reconstructed speech waveform. Polar Spectrum Coding theory is explained. The sensitivities of various parameters on performance are explored, and performance in the presence of channel noise is measured. Directions for future research in the realm of Polar Spectrum Coding is suggested.
