Improving scalar quantization for correlated processes using adaptive codebooks only at the receiver [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Lloyd-Max quantization (LMQ) is a widely used scalar non-uniform quantization approach targeting for the minimum mean squared error (MMSE). Once designed, the quantizer codebook is fixed over time and does not take advantage of possible correlations in the input signals. Exploiting correlation in scalar quantization could be achieved by predictive quantization, however, for the price of a higher bit error sensitivity. In order to improve the Lloyd-Max quantizer performance for correlated processes without encoder-sided prediction, a novel scalar decoding approach utilizing the correlation of input signals is proposed in this paper. Based on previously received samples, the current sample can be predicted a priori. Thereafter, a quantization codebook adapted over time will be generated according to the prediction error probability density function. Compared to the standard LMQ, distinct improvement is achieved with our receiver in error-free and error-prone transmission conditions, both with hard-decision and soft-decision decoding.
