Acoustic problems are notorious in the world of architecture – they are one of the most important factors by which the quality of a space is judged, and one of the easiest in which issues can rear their heads. Acoustics are becoming a very important feature of room/building design. If you are designing a concert hall or theater you need to make sure that people in every seat have the best experience, which mean poor acoustics should not take away from the event. When designing a restaurant it should provide an environment where conversations at the table are not affected. Using The Acoustic Camera you can map the sound sources on a 3D model of the room and provide a way to measure the room’s impulse response. This provides the ability to precisely localize the direct sound and the early reflections over time and space.
Some spaces have acoustics as their primary purpose, such as concert halls or theaters. The advanced architectural functions of NoiseImage can map impulse responses on a 3D model of an interior space, including individual reflection diagnostics. Moreover, the software can produce standard room acoustics parameters like Reverberation time, Early Decay Time, Clarity C80, Definition D50 and Center time.
The Acoustic Camera has been used countless times to troubleshoot noises that have been plaguing spaces for years – annoying knocks, whistles, and other seemingly unexplainable sounds have been highlighted, diagnosed, and eventually remedied thanks to the sensory power inherent in the Acoustic Camera system.
