Method and system for integrated audiovisual speech coding at low bitrate

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #6675145.

A method to transmit face images including the steps of: preparing a facial shape estimation unit receiving speech produced by a speaker and outputting a signal estimation the speaker's facial shape when he/she speaks; transmitting the speech produced by the speaker from the transmitting side to the receiving side and applying it to the facial shape estimation unit so as to estimate the speaker's facial shape; and generating a motion picture of the speaker's facial shape based on the signal estimation the speaker's facial shape output by the facial shape estimation unit.
