Abstract: A speech driven MPEG-4 compliant facial animation system is proposed in this paper. The main feature of the system is the audio-to-visual conversion based on the inversion of an Audio-Visual Hidden Markov Model. The Hidden Markov Model Inversion algorithm is derived for the general case of considering full covariance matrices for the audio-visual observations. A performance comparison with the more common case of considering diagonal covariance matrices is carried out. Experimental results show that the use of full covariance matrices is preferable since it leads to an accurate estimation of the visual parameters, yielding the same performance as in the case of using diagonal covariance matrices, but with a less complex model.
