Multizone Speech Reinforcement

  title={Multizone Speech Reinforcement},
  author={Joao B. Crespo and Richard Christian Hendriks},
  journal={IEEE/ACM Transactions on Audio, Speech, and Language Processing},
In this article, we address speech reinforcement (near-end listening enhancement) for a scenario where there are several playback zones. In such a framework, signals from one zone can leak into other zones (crosstalk), causing intelligibility and/or quality degradation. An optimization framework is built by exploring a signal model where effects of noise, reverberation and zone crosstalk are taken into account simultaneously. Through the symbolic usage of a general smooth distortion measure… CONTINUE READING
