NoiseImage is our powerful, yet user-friendly software program for handling any and all acoustic measurements. The software is built upon a foundation of over 20 years of user experience and feedback, as well as an R&D staff of more than 25 specialists. NoiseImage is also constantly being upgraded with new algorithms, features, and software modules.
At its core, NoiseImage is a modular software system. Every module brings its own graphical interface and tools, specifically designed to assist in each analysis task. Depending on each user’s needs, the appropriate modules within NoiseImage are included to give the relevant analysis tools they need, while not wasting expense for features that are outside their discipline. Each of our customers therefore has their own unique software package, fully customized for their needs.
At the heart of NoiseImage is the Basic module. Configure your system for recording data with a friendly graphic interface, and create acoustic photos by analyzing a set time interval of the recorded data.
Break down your data into the frequency domain to perform narrowband analysis, or within certain octave or 1/3-octave bands. Use either a spectrum or a spectrogram to guide your selection criteria.
Why produce a single photo when you can generate a movie? This module calculates a series of photos to act as frames of a video with up to 192,000 acoustic frames per second. Includes video sync for external high resolution or high-speed video application.
Acoustic Photo 3D
Instead of a flat image, use the 3D module in conjunction with a 3D microphone array to visualize sound sources in all directions. Our elegant fitting algorithm places the Acoustic Camera accurately in your CAD model, which is transformed into an acoustic map.
The Nearfield module supplements traditional beamforming with nearfield analysis techniques including the HELS and SONAH algorithms. Use our arrays for a complete sound field analysis including pressure, particle velocity, intensity and phase information.
Easily our most full-featured software module, Advanced Algorithms contains all of the calculation methods that have been incorporated from state of the art research. With the HDR method, CLEAN-SC, and Power Beamforming to name just a few, the Advanced Algorithms package transforms the Acoustic Camera into an analysis tool that tests the limits of impossibility.
In the world of rotating machinery, frequency is not the only domain that matters. Incorporate an RPM signal to unlock acoustic analysis in the order domain. Whether in an Order Spectrum or an Ordergram, you can finally find where that problematic 24th order is making noise.
Do you need to perform a lot of acoustic analysis at once? Set your analysis parameters ahead of time in order to do a batch analysis, and come back to find your exported results waiting for you. You can also schedule measurements to be performed in the future, so that you can focus on other work and rest easy.
Wind Tunnel Module
Look no further for the state-of-the-art in aeroacoustics. When coupled with one of our specialty Wind Tunnel arrays, the Wind Tunnel software cuts through the tough variables. Shear layer effects? Widening angle corrections? NoiseImage can handle it and show razor-sharp analysis.
Not satisfied with sound pressure level alone? Weighting sound sources using established sound quality parameters (roughness, sharpness, etc.) for an entirely new dimension of acoustic imaging.
With this module, you can visualize sound propagation in room acoustic measurements. Analyze by frequencies or the decay curves of individual third octave bands. As an added feature, easily determine reverberation time, early decay time, clarity C80, and more.
Easily implement your own algorithms and routines written in MATLAB in our NoiseImage software for analysis.
Import and export channel data in order to use the third-party data acquisition system you got stuck with while still analyzing data in NoiseImage.
User interface for DLL implementation
Want to run your own algorithms in NoiseImage? The C++ developer interface for user-programmed calculation DLLs allows you to do exactly that.
