With SQala, jury tests can be set up quickly and easily and performed either at a single-user system or in a listening studio. SQala supports playback of binaural recordings and enables product or ambient noises to be rated flexibly and aurally accurately no matter where or when. Possible modifications to product noise can then be carried out seamlessly in ArtemiS SUITE and tested again in SQala before being implemented in actual prototypes.

SQala offers the following jury testing methods:

  • Category judgment
  • Simultaneous category judgment
  • Ranking
  • Paired comparison
  • Semantic differential

The test coordinator can use interactive tools to supervise, manage and control jury testing. The results are stored on the SQala Server. A seamless connection to the ArtemiS SUITE software platform offers a wide range of functions for noise pre- and post-processing.
