Oncoming audio technologies privilege the perceptive quality of audio signals, thus offering users an immersive audio experience, which involves listening and acquisition of audio signals. In such a scenario a fundamental role is played by intelligent acoustic interfaces that aim at acquiring audio information, processing it, and returning the processed information under the fulfillment of quality requirements demanded by users. In this paper we introduce intelligent acoustic interfaces for immersive audio experience and we prove their effectiveness within the context of immersive speech communications. In particular, we introduce an intelligent acoustic interface composed of a combined adaptive beamforming scheme in conjunction with a microphone array, which is able to enhance the processed signals in immersive scenarios.
