This work presents a quantization technique for LSP parameters which results in a low bit-rate transmission while providing protection against channel errors. As a generalization of the so called Channel Optimized Vector Quantization (COVQ), Channel Optimized Matrix Quantization (COMQ) can remove intraframe and interframe LSP redundancy with the target of protecting the information sent through a channel in the presence of noise. Split COMQ is used in order to reduce storage requirements and complexity. Results show that Split COMQ gives better performance under certain error conditions and a lower bit rate transmission in all channel conditions compared to the reference quantization techniques.
