Stereo echo cancellation has been achieved and used in daily teleconferencing. To overcome the non-uniqueness problem, a stereo shaker is introduced in eight frequency bands and adjusted so as to be inaudible and not affect stereo perception. A duo-filter control system including a continually running adaptive filter and a fixed filter is used for double-talk control. A second-order stereo projection algorithm is used in the adaptive filter. A stereo voice switch is also included. This stereo echo canceller was tested in two-way conversation in a conference room, and the strength of the stereo shaker was subjectively adjusted. A misalignment of 20 dB was obtained in the teleconferencing environment, and changing the talker's position in the transmission room did not affect the cancellation. This echo canceller is now used daily in a high-presence teleconferencing system and has been demonstrated to more than 300 attendees.
