When trying to locate and understand sound sources, the Acoustic Camera is the measurement tool of choice. Using phased-array beamforming, the Acoustic Camera is a quick, easy, and powerful tool for a wide variety of applications where it is crucial to find acoustic sources. If you can hear it, we can find it.
A 2D Acoustic Camera system can range from a simple point-and-shoot troubleshooting machine to a cutting-edge system capable of finding noises that live on the border of human perception... and well beyond! With a wide variety of microphone array geometries, we can build the perfect system to locate virtually any acoustic source you can think of, and show it to you in a simple photo.
Whether you have a noise that could be coming from any direction, or you simply want to completely analyze an enclosed space, our 3D arrays have you covered. Our acoustically transparent arrays are capable of beamforming in all directions simultaneously. Our 3D software module takes this information and overlays the acoustic field on a CAD model, providing you an interactive analysis of the sound environment with minimal effort.
Our handheld devices are optimized for quick sound source localization using either beamforming or nearfield methods. These devices guarantee an easy handling for acoustic measurements in the far field and near field. As flexible mobile devices, Handheld Microphone Arrays are a great addition to any Acoustic Camera system. Moreover, the integrated data recorder makes them usable as a stand-alone solution. Handheld arrays are especially suited for troubleshooting because they enable real-time measurements in wide frequency ranges. Required time and effort for measurements are minimized since the lightweight device comes in a practical carry-case, already set up and ready to use.
Acoustic beamforming can be considered an elegantly simple algorithm in theory, but implementing it in practice requires a lot of resources and heavy-duty hardware. We have you covered, with each customized data recorder using our own high-speed data acquisition cards offering cutting edge performance. Despite its power, the recorder is simple to use, requiring minimal cabling and setup time so you can focus on the task at hand rather than tedious setup work.
Despite the data collection and processing power of the Acoustic Camera hardware, one of our most important offerings is the NoiseImage software used for data collection and analysis. Consistently receiving glowing feedback from our users, NoiseImage makes beamforming's complex data processing tasks intuitive and easy. Furthermore, the software is based on a modular system: by choosing the relevant modules for any given application, each user of NoiseImage has a software program tailored entirely to their needs.
