HEAD acoustics launches HEAD VISOR flex
Hearing with the eyes: The innovation among acoustic cameras
HEAD acoustics, one of the world’s leading companies for integrated acoustic solutions as well as sound and vibration analysis, offers now a new beamforming system.
The human brain can process visual impressions faster and more flexible than pure acoustic impressions. The proven system HEAD VISOR, which can make sounds and their sources visible to the eye, is now complemented by HEAD VISOR flex.  What makes both systems special is that it takes them only a few seconds to locate a sound source and visualize it in the software.
Beamforming in a new dimension – HEAD VISOR flex
Locating sound sources at great distances, with low frequencies or with high precision requirements demands large microphone arrays with a large number of microphones. With HEAD VISOR flex, a custom array according to special needs regarding size, layout, and the number of microphones can be set up.
A complete in-house development
„Especially for HEAD VISOR flex we have, for the first time, developed our own measurement microphones, which are tailored specifically to the requirements of operation in a microphone array”, says Prof. Dr. Klaus Genuit, founder and associate of HEAD acoustics. “The microphone signals are recorded via low-cost HEADlab modules (VFV12) developed for HEAD VISOR flex and designed specifically for the recording of multiple microphone signals of the same type”, adds Dr. Winfried Krebber, manager of the development department NVH.
MultipleEye-Technology: Three eyes for accurate depth perception
Also employed by HEAD VISOR flex is the proven MultipleEye technology: Three cameras measure the exact distance to the object and allows the precise location of sound sources without having to manually enter source distances for beamforming calculation.
