Abstract

The problem we address in this paper is the design of nearly optimal scalar quantizer in a wide variance range of the Laplacian input signals, using the piecewise uniform quantizers while restricting the class of quantizers to be forward adaptive. Particularly, the design procedure of the piecewise uniform quantizer with an equidistant support region partion and the optimized reproduction level distribution per segments is presented along with the design procedure of its forward adaptive version. Reproduction level optimization is performed by optimizing the granular distortion of the proposed quantizer using the method of the Lagrange multipliers. For the proposed model we study the influence of the segment number on the SQNR, as well as the SQNR robustness in a wide variance range. Since the results obtained for the assumed Laplacian distribution indicate the SQNR improvement over the G.711 standard, one can expect that the proposed quantizer will be effective in the quantization of signals having the same distribution and the time varying characteristics.
