Independent Vector Analysis (IVA) is a popular extension of Independent Component Analysis (ICA) for joint separation of a set of instantaneous linear mixtures, with a direct application in frequency-domain speaker separation or extraction. The mixtures are parameterized by mixing matrices, one matrix per mixture. This means that the IVA mixing model does not account for any relationships between parameters across the mixtures/frequencies. The separation proceeds jointly only through the source model, where statistical dependencies of sources across the mixtures are taken into account. In this paper, we propose a mixing model for joint blind source extraction where the mixing model parameters are linked across the frequencies. This is achieved by constraining the set of feasible parameters to the manifold of half-length separating filters, which has a clear interpretation and application in frequency-domain speaker extraction.
