This paper presents a system approach to the acoustic echo cancellation (AEC) problem in a noisy acoustic environment. We propose a method that makes use of the estimated near-end signal from a postfilter to further improve the AEC system performance. The cancellation performance is enhanced especially during strong near-end interference (e.g., double(More)
This paper presents a novel decorrelation procedure by frequency-domain resampling in sub-bands. The new procedure expands on the idea of resampling in the frequency domain that efficiently and effectively alleviates the non-uniqueness problem for a multi-channel acoustic echo cancellation system while introducing minimal distortion to the signal. We show(More)
An inter-channel decorrelation procedure via resampling in the frequency domain for multi-channel acoustic echo cancellation (MCAEC) based on residual echo enhancement is proposed. The objective is to efficiently alleviate the non-uniqueness problem while introducing minimal distortion to the audio quality and the signal statistics. The effectiveness is(More)
This paper presents a system approach to the residual echo suppression (RES) problem in a noisy acoustic environment. We propose a method that takes advantage of our existing robust acoustic echo cancellation system in order to obtain a residual echo estimate that closely resembles the true, noise-free residual echo. To achieve improved RES during strong(More)
In this paper, a novel post-filtering method applied after the logSTSA filter is proposed. Since the post-filter is derived from vector quantization of clean speech database, it has an equivalent effect of imposing clean source spectral constraints on the enhanced speech. When combined with the logSTSA filter, the additional filter can noticeably suppress(More)
An inter-channel decorrelation procedure is highly recommended for multi-channel acoustic echo cancellation (AEC) to directly assist adaptive filtering algorithms in overcoming the so-called “non-uniqueness” problem. Although various methods have been proposed in the past to mitigate the problem and lower the misalignment of the adaptive(More)
This paper examines the effect of inter-channel decorrelation by sub-band resampling (SBR) on the performance of the robust acoustic echo cancellation (AEC) system based on the residual echo enhancement technique. Due to the flexibility of SBR, the decorrelation performance as measured by the coherence can be matched with other conventional decorrelation(More)
This paper introduces an approach to cluster and suppress acoustic echo signals in hands-free, full-duplex speech communication systems. We employ the instantaneous recursive estimate of the magnitude squared coherence (MSC) of the echo line signal and the microphone signal, and model it with a two-component Beta mixture distribution. Since we consider the(More)
