  • Publication number: 20200329202
    Abstract: An image capturing apparatus comprising: an image capturing unit; a driving unit for moving an image capturing direction; a first detection unit; a second detection unit; a sound input unit including a plurality of microphones; a third detection unit; and a control unit, wherein the control unit determines microphones of the sound input unit, based on the direction of the user detected by the first detection unit and the movement of the image capturing apparatus detected by the second detection unit, wherein the third detection unit detects a direction of a sound source of the voice collected by microphones, and wherein, in a case where the third detection unit has detected the direction of the sound source of the voice, the control unit controls the driving unit to move the image capturing direction of the image capturing unit to direct toward the direction of the sound source.

  • Publication number: 20200322540
    Abstract: An image capturing apparatus comprising: an image capturing unit; a sound collecting unit; a detecting unit for detecting sound pressure level of a voice sound collected by the sound collecting unit, a recognizing unit for recognizing that a voice sound collected by the sound collecting unit is an instruction for shooting by the image capturing unit; and a control unit, wherein the control unit controls the image capturing unit to shoot in response that the detecting unit detects sound pressure level of a voice sound collected by the sound collecting unit is larger than a predetermined sound pressure level, and that the recognizing unit recognizes the voice sound as an instruction for shooting by the image capturing unit.

  • Patent number: 10535363
    Abstract: An audio processing apparatus includes a transform unit that transforms time series audio data obtained from first and second microphones into first and second frequency spectrum data; a driving noise computation processing unit that computes a subtraction amount of the driving noise for each of frequencies from the first and second frequency spectrum data obtained by the transform unit; a generating unit that, on the basis of the first and the second frequency spectrum data obtained by the transform unit and the driving noise subtraction amount obtained by the driving noise computation processing unit, generates left and right channel frequency spectrum data in which the driving noise is respectively suppressed; and an inverse transform unit that inverse-transforms the left and right channel frequency spectrum data generated by the generating unit into left and right channel time series audio data, respectively.

  • Patent number: 10366683
    Abstract: A percussion-instrument playing apparatus for playing a percussion instrument having a striking surface. The apparatus includes: a main body to be mounted on the percussion instrument 100 to face the striking surface of the percussion instrument with a predetermined space from the striking surface; an arm supporter attached to the main body; an arm that has, at a distal end, an arm head, and is rotatably supported by the arm supporter; a drive device that allows the arm to be rotationally displaced between a state where the arm head pushes the striking surface of the percussion instrument and a state where the arm head is separated from the striking surface; a control device that controls the drive device in accordance with a control program; and an operation device that outputs a drive instruction signal to the control device in response to an operation by a user.
