Speech and audio codecs are usually designed such that they encode all the frequency bands of the input signal spectrum. If the higher bands do not contain any perceptually meaningful content, these codecs often do not work optimally as they assign part of the available bit budget to encode these bands. In this paper we describe a bandwidth detection algorithm that determines the effective audio bandwidth of the input signal. This information is used to set the codec to its optimal configuration and consequently increase the coding efficiency for band-limited signals by allocating bits to encode only the useful bandwidth. The presented algorithm has been used in the new codec for Enhanced Voice Services (EVS), recently standardized by 3GPP, but it can be employed in other codecs as well.
