The SoundCam Bionic is a fully portable point-and-measure beamforming system that is super easy to use. With a built-in display, battery, and interchangeable arrays it can fulfill multiple functions including facility maintenance, product development, R&D engineering, architecture, and environmental noise. It uses the common SoundCam software that runs on all SoundCam systems which can also be run remotely on a Windows PC (safety situations).
Noise Inspector can also be used with the SoundCam 2.0 for data collection and advanced post-processing analysis including HD beamforming and acoustic holography.
For advanced post-processing, analysis, HD acoustic beamforming consider using the optional Noise Inspector software.
– SoundCam Software –
The SoundCam software is a point-and-measure real-time software. It allows you to fine-tune your measurements and then store up to 60s of measurement data on a rolling basis so when you see what you want, then store it. You can also take pictures and create videos. Event-based detection and documentation are available using sound-level or spectrum-based triggers that will automatically save the measurement and pictures. Data stored by the SoundCam software is pre-processed beamforming data that can be replayed with different level scaling. For more advanced after-the-fact processing you will need the Noise Inspector software.
– Noise Inspector –
Noise Inspector is a data collection and analysis software that operates on Windows PC. Unlike the SoundCam software which is primarily designed for real-time analysis and storing beamformed data, Noise Inspector stores the entire data stream, from all microphones, which then can be processed after the fact. Noise inspector is a better option when:
- You have limited time to collect data or only have a single opportunity at collecting data
- Desire or require to process and analyze data later time
- Need to analyze a complex situation
- Require High-Definition or use of different beamforming algorithms.
