Friday, October 20, 10:45 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. Room PD07, Javitz Center

Session topic: Agile Audio Product Development – Paul Beckmann

During his talk, Paul will focus on recent advances in design tools for audio product developers that streamline the development and tuning of real-time audio processing software. Sophisticated audio features are now within reach of most companies, including those without a dedicated design team.

Session topic: Front End Processing for Voice Enabled Products – Paul Beckmann

Voice UI has become an important feature in consumer and automotive audio products. Many OEMS are scrambling to incorporate there features and have little or no experience with microphone processing. In this session, Paul will discuss the front end audio processing required by a device to properly interface to a cloud based ASR engine. He’ll discuss beamforming, echo cancellation, direction of arrival estimation, and noise reduction. Paul will also demonstrate how the algorithms must be designed to work in concert for far field voice pickup and the difficult to achieve "barge in" feature. He’ll also present a novel metric which is correlated with performance and allows easy comparison of beamformer designs.
