The performance of a fingerprinting system, which is often measured in terms of reliability and robustness, is directly related to the features that the system uses. In this letter, we present a new audio-fingerprinting method based on the normalized spectral subband moments. A threshold used to reliably determine a fingerprint match is obtained by modeling the features as a stationary process. The robustness of the normalized moments was evaluated experimentally and compared with that of the spectral flatness measure. Among the considered subband features, the first-order normalized moment showed the best performance for fingerprinting.
