In this paper, we describe a system developed for hands free audio analysis for a living room environment. It comprises detection and localisation of the verbal and paralinguistic events, which can augment the behaviour of virtual director and improve the overall experience of interactions between spatially separated families and friends. The results show good performance in reverberant environments and fulfil real-time requirements.
