SHORT-TIME MULTICHANNEL NOISE CORRELATION MATRIX ESTIMATORS FOR ACOUSTIC SIGNALS By: Jonathan Blanchette and Martin Bouchard

2
Overview ▶ Introduction ▶ Framework ▶ Noise correlation matrix estimators ▶ Performance measure ▶ Conclusion & Outlook

3
Introduction ▶ Speech enhancement or beamforming algorithms require the noise Power Spectral Density (PSD). ▶ Many multichannel noise PSD estimation algorithms require some knowledge on sound sources: Number of sources (Many sources are possibly present, time varying) Directivities (Can be unknown) ▶ Additionally many assume that the noise field is diffuse and homogeneous (The noise field could be inhomogeneous).

Performance measure ▶ Other multichannel algorithms that can’t be included as a subcases involve knowledge on the sources directivities. Not fair! ▶ Single channel algorithms don’t use information on directivities. Comparison with single channel algorithms

32
Performance measure ▶ Problems with comparison: o Single channel algorithms estimate only diagonal elements of the correlation matrix Comparison with single channel algorithms
