Teleconferencing systems employ acoustic echo cancelers to reduce echoes that result from coupling between the loudspeaker and microphone. To enhance the sound realism, two-channel audio is necessary. However, in this case (stereophonic sound) the acoustic echo cancellation problem is more difficult to solve because of the necessity to uniquely identify two acoustic paths. We explain these problems in detail and give an interesting solution which is much better than previously known solutions. The basic idea is to introduce a small nonlinearity into each channel that has the effect of reducing the interchannel coherence while not being noticeable for speech due to self masking
