The ISO/IEC MPEG-4 audio standard includes the TwinVQ encoding tool. This tool is suitable for low-bit-rate general audio coding, but a drawback is the computational complexity of the encoder. To develop a faster TwinVQ encoder, new fast vector quantization algorithms - area localized pre-selection and hit zone masking - are introduced. These algorithms exploit the pre- and main-selection procedure scheme of the conjugate structure vector quantization which is used in the TwinVQ. The improvement is evaluated by measuring the encoding speed and the sound quality of reproduction
