Spatial audio reproduction is essential to create a natural listening experience for digital media. Majority of the legacy audio contents are in channel-based format, which is very particular on the desired playback system. Considering the diversity of today's playback systems, the quality of reproduced sound scenes degrades significantly when mismatches between the audio content and the playback system occur. An active sound control approach is required to take the playback system into consideration.

This presentation deals with estimation of the target sound Direction of Arrival (DoA) for a Hearing Aid System (HAS) which can connect to a wireless microphone worn by a target talker. In this setup, the HAS is "informed" about the almost noise-free content of the target sound via the wireless microphone and can use this information for the DoA estimation. Here, we propose an "informed" DoA estimator based on the Time Difference of Arrival (TDoA) of the target sound at two microphones mounted on the ears of the HAS user---one microphone on each ear.

One of the key issues in spatial audio analysis and reproduction is to decompose a signal into primary and ambient components based on their directional and diffuse spatial features, respectively. Existing approaches employed in primary-ambient extraction (PAE), such as principal component analysis (PCA), are mainly based on a basic stereo signal model. The performance of these PAE approaches has not been well studied for the input signals that do not satisfy all the assumptions of the stereo signal model.

In spatial audio analysis-synthesis, one of the key issues is to decompose a signal into primary and ambient components based on their spatial features. Principal component analysis (PCA) has been widely employed in primary component extraction, and shifted PCA (SPCA) is employed to enhance the primary extraction for input signals involving the inter-channel time difference. However, SPCA generally requires the primary components to come from one direction and cannot produce good results in the case of multiple directions.

Individualization of head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) can be realized using the person’s anthropometry with a pre-trained model. This model usually establishes a direct linear or non-linear mapping from anthropometry to HRTFs in the training database. Due to the complex relation between anthropometry and HRTFs, the accuracy of this model depends heavily on the correct selection of the anthropometric features.

In spatial audio analysis-synthesis, one of the key issues is to decompose a signal into primary and ambient components based on their spatial features. Stereo audio signals are often modeled as a linear mixture of primary and ambient components. Existing approaches like principal component analysis (PCA) and least squares (LS) have been widely employed to extract primary and ambient components from stereo signals. However, the performance and comparisons of these approaches in primary-ambient extraction (PAE) have not been well studied.

The diversity of today’s playback systems requires a flexible, efficient, and immersive reproduction of sound scenes in digital media. Spatial audio reproduction based on primary-ambient extraction (PAE) fulfills this objective, where accurate extraction of primary and ambient components from sound mixtures in channel-based audio is crucial. Severe extraction error was found in existing PAE approaches when dealing with sound mixtures that contain a relatively strong ambient component, a commonly encountered case in the sound scenes of digital media.
