Over the last few years mobile communication devices have gone from single channel speech only devices to wide-band multichannel audio recording devices that can also be used for communication. The inclusion of multiple microphones into phones has improved voice quality, reduced background noise, and allowed for the capture of quality multichannel audio. This workshop is geared toward the designers of communications devices, the developers of multichannel audio algorithms, the programmers of applications utilizing these new multichannel acquisition devices, and the engineers tasked with testing these devices. The workshop will begin with an introduction to the subject, including presentations of various aspect of design, test, and standardization of multichannel microphone systems for telecommunications by each of the panelists. The panel will then discuss the current technology and testing landscape centered around questions from the audience.
