Title (EN) SPEECH CAPTURING AND SPEECH RENDERING
(FR) SAISIE DE PAROLES ET RENDU DE PAROLES
Abstract:
(EN) The invention proposes extracting one or more speech signals (151-154) as well as one or more ambient signals (131) from sound signals captured by microphones, wherein each of the speech signals corresponds to a different speaker. The invention proposes to transmit both the one or more speech signals (151-154) and the one or more ambient signals (131) to a rendering side, as opposed to sending only speech signals. This enables to reproduce the speech and ambient signals in a spatially different way at the rendering side. By reproducing the ambient signals a feeling of "being together" is created. In an embodiment, the invention enables reproducing two or more speech signals spatially different from each other and from the ambient signals so that speech intelligibility is increased despite the presence of the ambient signals.
(FR) L'invention concerne l'extraction d'un ou plusieurs signaux de paroles (151 à 154) et d'un ou plusieurs signaux ambiants (131) à partir de signaux sonores saisis par des microphones, chacun des signaux de paroles correspondant à un orateur différent. L'invention concerne la transmission à la fois de l'un ou plusieurs signaux de paroles (151 à 154) et l'un ou plusieurs signaux ambiants (131) à un côté de rendu, par opposition à l'envoi de signaux de paroles seulement. Cela permet de reproduire les signaux de paroles et les signaux ambiants d'une manière spatialement différente du côté de rendu. Par la reproduction des signaux ambiants, une sensation d'"être ensemble" est créée. Dans un mode de réalisation, l'invention permet la reproduction de deux ou plus signaux de paroles qui soient spatialement différents les uns des autres et qui soient différents des signaux ambiants de sorte que les paroles sont plus intelligibles en dépit de la présence des signaux ambiants.
