DynaBeam is a module that allows for real-time construction of a 3D model for exceptionally powerful beamforming. The DynaBeam module records depth information from the optical camera during the regular acoustic recording. As it moves, the Acoustic Camera tracks the absolute position of all the microphones, expanding the apparent array size with more movement. The resulting measurement is a 3D sound localization using a virtual array of the entire span of the measurement. The result is a far greater dynamic range with fewer processing artifacts.
The 3D model is generated automatically after the measurement, without any manual fitting procedures or required external sensors. The analysis procedures and functionalities are exactly the same as any other Acoustic Camera measurement, with all the signature ease of use that you can expect. Although, as an added benefit, the variation in position unlocks the ability to illustrate calculated directivity vector animations in conjunction with the 3D analysis.
