  1. 1. Causal MMSE Filters for Personal Audio : A Polynomial Matrix Approach

    Author : Simon Widmark; Mikael Sternad; Anders Ahlén; Lars-Johan Brännmark; Fredrik Gustafsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Personal Audio; Audio Pre-compensators; Causal Filters; Elektroteknik med inriktning mot reglerteknik; Electrical Engineering with specialization in Automatic Control;

    Abstract : This thesis is devoted to the study of synthesis of causal filters for generating personal sound zones. Personal sound zones, personal audio or personal sound is the theory and practice of steering sound in such a way that it is amplified in one region and suppressed in another. READ MORE

  2. 2. Audio-video synthesis methods for improving performance of biometric systems

    Author : Dereje Teferi Lemma; Josef Bigun; Högskolan i Halmstad; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biometrics; Audio-Video synthesis; Image segmentation; XM2VTS; DXM2VTS; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : System security is important for any automation. It is even more so in the case of biometric systems due to the sensitive nature of the data it uses for enrollment and authentication - the subjects physical or biological trait. READ MORE

  3. 3. Background road traffic noise synthesis

    Author : Georgios Zachos; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; background traffic noise synthesis; auralisation; urban sound planning;

    Abstract : As urban planning evolves along with societal life, new requirements that should be met are rising. One of those, is the inclusion of acoustic quality in urban environments, before, during, or after a planning process. To address this for a yet to be built area, metrics are needed that try to quantify acoustic quality. READ MORE

  4. 4. Talking Heads - Models and Applications for Multimodal Speech Synthesis

    Author : Jonas Beskow; KTH; []
    Keywords : Talking heads; facial animation; speech synthesis; coarticulation; intelligibility; embodied conversational agents;

    Abstract : This thesis presents work in the area of computer-animatedtalking heads. A system for multimodal speech synthesis hasbeen developed, capable of generating audiovisual speechanimations from arbitrary text, using parametrically controlled3D models of the face and head. READ MORE

  5. 5. Perceptual and Squared Error Aspects in Speech and Audio Coding

    Author : Harald Pobloth; Bastiaan Kleijn; Gernot Kubin; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Signalbehandling; speech coding; audio coding; auditory models; perceptual distortion measures; squared error; Signalbehandling; Signal processing; Signalbehandling;

    Abstract : In the process of quantization, speech and audio signals are changed. This thesis contains four papers concerned with comparing and minimizing different measures to quantify the changes introduced. Before quantization the signal can be transformed to another domain. Transforms related to the discrete Fourier transform allow for e. READ MORE
