Abstract [en]

This paper analyzes subband beamforming schemes mainly aimed at speech enhancement and acoustic echo suppression applications such as hands-free telephony for both mobile and office environments, internet telephony and video conferencing. Analytical descriptions of both causal finite-length and noncausal infinite-length subband microphone array structures are given. More specifically, this paper compares finite Wiener filter performance with the noncausal Wiener solution, giving a comprehensive theoretical suppression limit. It is shown that even short filters will yield a good approximation of the infinite solution, provided that the element spacing and temporal sampling is matched to the frequency band of interest. Typically, 10-20 FIR taps are sufficient in each subband.
