01dB introduces Noise Inspector, the best solution for acoustic cameras, developed by his partner CAE Software and Systems.
Powerful, versatile and flexible, the Noise Inspector range is at the forefront of technological innovation in the field of sound source localization.

With great ease of system setting up, sound and vibration emissions becomes quickly visible.

The software is easy to use for non-specialists and offers great advanced functionalities for professionals in acoustics. The results are acoustic images or movies, easy to interpret, and easy to communicate. Noise Inspector is the perfect mobile tool to help you determine dominant sound sources in the Environment, improve your product quality, minimize development time and to save your resources. The system guarantees precise and uncomplicated determination of acoustic sources, also convinces through its really low costs.

Acoustic Cameras are now at your fingertips!


The unique modular acoustic camera system provides an optimal & high performance solution for every need.

Either using the Smart Vision kits (with a tablet-PC attached to the back of the camera) to localize sound sources as easily as localizing thermal defects using a thermal camera. Or using the Noise Inspector kits (with a Laptop-PC for instance) for real-time and/or offline sound source localization: with scalable capacities, from standard to refined analysis, to the most advanced investigations abilities.
Pick-up the array corresponding to your needs and to the kinds of noise you want to analyze: with the Beamforming technique, the larger the diameter is, the better the results in the lower frequencies.
Besides, the BionicS-112 and BionicM-112 arrays have the unique advantage of being compatible with both Beamforming and SONAH techniques.

In addition, it is possible to expand your acoustic camera with an additional array to open up new fields of application


The new generation Bionic arrays are based on 112 integrated microphones.
Innovation is always the watchword:

Optimized array shape and microphone distribution: guarantees perfect sound source localization and high dynamic range.
Embedded High Definition digital camera.
Integrated data acquisition: no need to use external measuring equipment
Seven detachable microphone arms (setup about 1 minute): makes the system very transportable within a small package size
Mobile (can be hand-held with a handle)
Battery operable
Among the great choice of arrays, there is one to fit each need:

BionicS-112 (112 mics, 0.6m diameter, for Beamforming and Nearfied acoustic holography) – NEW!
BionicM-112 (112 mics, 1m, for Beamforming and Nearfied acoustic holography) – NEW!
BionicL-112 (112 mics, 1.6m diameter, for Beamforming) – NEW!


The Smart Vision software is the perfect solution for newcomers to acoustics. The software offers fast localization of acoustic issues. Therefore deep knowledge of acoustics is not necessary. The software ease-of-use makes it possible to start immediately working on your problems.

The Noise Inspector software is the standard solution for visualizing sound sources. With its user-friendly interface, the application-oriented software guides you from data acquisition to analysis to saving and reporting of acoustic data. Several methods are available for processing the microphone signals.
A comprehensive reporting tool allows the user to quickly generate documentation and visualization of the results: export to Word, pictures, movies…


Many well-known algorithms are available, and complemented with unique new algorithms.

For measurements in the far field:

Standard Beamforming, orthogonal Beamforming
Enhancements to beamforming for optimal resolution at low frequencies: Capon, DAMAS, MUSIC algorithms...
CleanSC, to get a dynamic range of more than 40 dB
Rotating Beamforming, for ventilators, turbines, fast rotating etc.. for analyzing wingtips and blade edges.
Further algorithms may be seamlessly integrated due to the open program structure and the easy-to-use labVIEW or Matlab interface
Worldwide unique 3D beamforming technology.
For measurements in the nearfield, and for low frequency noise sources as well: Nearfield Acoustic Holography (SONAH).

Acoustic processing is applicable to stationary and non-stationary noise sources.
