Title (EN) DISTRIBUTED AUDIO CAPTURE AND MIXING CONTROLLING
(FR) CAPTURE AUDIO DISTRIBUÉE ET COMMANDE DE MIXAGE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus for identifying which sound sources are associated with which microphone audio signals, the apparatus comprising a processor configured to: determine/receive a position/orientation of at least one sound source relative to a microphone array (107); receive at least one microphone audio signal (a1, a2, a3), each microphone audio signal received from a microphone (101,103,105); receive an audio-focussed audio signal (ab,) from the microphone array, wherein the audio-focussed audio signal is directed from the microphone array towards the one of the at least one sound source so as to enhance the audio-focussed audio signal; compare the audio-focussed audio signal against each microphone audio signal to identify a match between one of the at least one microphone audio signal and the audio focussed audio signal; and associate the one of the at least one microphone with the at least one sound source, based on the identified match.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil pour l'identification des sources sonores qui sont associées à des signaux audio de microphone, l'appareil comportant un processeur configuré pour: déterminer/recevoir une position/orientation d'au moins une source sonore par rapport à un réseau de microphones; recevoir au moins un signal audio de microphone, chaque signal audio de microphone étant reçu en provenance d'un microphone; recevoir un signal audio à focalisation sonore provenant du réseau de microphones, le signal audio à focalisation sonore étant dirigé depuis le réseau de microphones vers ladite au moins une source sonore pour améliorer le signal audio à focalisation sonore; comparer le signal audio à focalisation sonore à chaque signal audio de microphone pour identifier une correspondance entre ledit au moins un signal de microphone et le signal audio à focalisation sonore; et associer ledit au moins un microphone à ladite au moins une source sonore, sur la base de la correspondance identifiée.
