License-free and easy to use: HEAD Companion is a support software program specially designed to handle the HEAD acoustics-specific data format “.hdf”. HEAD Companion is available for download free of charge. It is particularly useful for users working with HEADlab modules and the hand-held systems SQuadriga III and SQobold.

The software offers all the basic tools to

  • View measurement and analysis data
  • Playback recorded data aurally-accurate
  • Edit specific channel characteristics
  • Convert HDF files to standard formats (e.g. WAV and ATFX)

HEAD Companion is suitable not only for users who handle measurement and analysis data in HDF-format only occasionally, but also for sharing the data with other departments, decision-makers or even suppliers. It allows them to view recordings and analyses even if they themselves do not have a full ArtemiS SUITE license.

Usage with hand-held systems

Thanks to the export function, the license-free HEAD Companion software is especially suitable for users that use only hardware from HEAD acoustics, but not yet any software subject to licensing. Since HEAD Companion is able to convert data to standard file formats (e.g. ATFX and WAV), Data recorded with SQuadriga III or SQobold can be exported into other standard software packages for further processing.
