Joint source-channel coding is an effective approach for the design of bandwidth efficient and error resilient communication systems with manageable complexity. An interesting research direction within this framework is the design of source decoders that exploit the residual redundancy for effective signal reconstruction at the receiver. Such source decoders are expected to replace the traditionally heuristic error concealment units that are elements of most multimedia communication systems. In this paper, we consider the reconstruction of signals encoded with a multistage vector quantizer (MSVQ) and transmitted over a noisy communications channel. The MSVQ maintains a moderate complexity and, due to its successive refinement feature, is a suitable choice for the design of layered (progressive) source codes. An approximate minimum mean squared error source decoder for MSVQ is presented, and its application to the reconstruction of the linear predictive coefficient (LPC) parameters in mixed excitation linear prediction (MELP) speech codec is analyzed. MELP is a low-rate standard speech codec suitable for bandwidth-limited communications and wireless applications. Numerical results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed schemes
