Subband Comfort Noise Insertion for an Acoustic Echo Suppressor

Document Thumbnail

This paper presents an efficient approach for comfort noise insertion for an acoustic echo suppressor. Acoustic echo suppression causes frequent noise level change in noisy environments. The proposed algorithm estimates the noise level for each frequency band using a minimum variance based noise estimator, and generates comfort noise based on the estimated noise level and a random phase generator. Tests show that the proposed comfort noise insertion algorithm is able to insert an appropriate level of comfort noise that matches the background noise characteristics in an efficient manner.
