The new standard in your tool set: the Sorama CAM

Sorama recently introduced the Sorama CAM64 and CAM1K, both very low-threshold and powerful sound cameras. It is the solution for sound and vibration challenges in any stage of product development, consultancy or environmental monitoring where sound and vibrations play a role. Compare it to a heat camera, but instead of overheating or energy leaks around a window it will show you where sound is leaking and where vibrations are present and how they originate. This will enable much shorter time to market and less time spend on trial & error.

Sorama Stream Portal

Sorama launches a new product at the Hannover Messe 2017: The Sorama Stream Portal. It enables engineers to tackle noise and vibration issues and perform sound design at their own level. Start with a dB-meter and work your way up through spectrum analysis and beam-forming until you master the potential of acoustic holography. This new web-based platform enables parallel live streaming sound level meters, spectrum analyzers, waterfalls, far- and near-field sound imaging for all Sorama CAMs. Also, it is now possible to use all streams and measurements while offline.

Stanford flys a micro quadcopter over the Sorama CAM1K

Stanford has selected Sorama to join in on an extensive research campaign focussed on understanding the dynamics of flight. Stanford Professor David Lentink has invited Sorama to his Lentinklab in Palo Alto last month to perform multiple days of testing with two Sorama CAM1Ks and two CAM64s. The high amount of channels combined (2176 MEMS microphones) and the extreme high-precision 3D transient Near-field Acoustic Holography Sorama provides were key to the research of Lentink and his PhD students.

Signs notify citizens about the sound detection in the living lab at Strijp-S Eindhoven (NL)

Sorama is introducing new functionalities and application areas for its sound cameras. In the living lab of Strijp-S the new Sorama Smart City Listener platform is active and running 24/7. The living lab covers an area with sidewalks, a street and a terrace in front of a restaurant. Three Sorama Listener64 MEMS microphone arrays are installed in light poles around this area and coupled via ethernet connections and a glass fiber backbone. The community watch of Strijp-S has a newly developed smartphone app that receives push-alerts for aggressive behaviour at a specific (GPS) location, in order to follow-up and check out the situation.

WAVES is a unique project by Sorama and TU/e OPENLIGHT, which premièred back in 2013 on GLOW NEXT and is now promoted to the mainstage of the GLOW Eindhoven event in the city centre. Light and sound are both forms of waves. Just as the radio and also our cell-phones communicate by means of waves. Waves are literally flying everywhere around us, yet we have never seen them. Until now! Because right here, at the very place where radio and television were once created, sound waves have been made visible. Whistle, clap, talk, sing or scream and see how you produce those waves. Enjoy the experience of how waves move through space and rebounce on the walls. Discover how different tones also produce different wave patterns.

September 2015 – The CityPulse project from Atos and Sorama has been rewarded with the Digital Impact Award during a live ceremony that took place in The Hague 3 September. In this project, Atos uses Big Data Intelligence to make the nightlife in the Dutch City of Eindhoven safer. By collecting real-time data from the busy nightlife area of Stratumseind, it is possible for emergency services and authorities to be kept informed about possible incidents and thus help to guarantee safety in the city. The Digital Impact Award was presented by ‘Nederland ICT’, the Dutch trade association for over 550 ICT companies in Netherlands, to a project or organization that - by means of an IT application - gives a clear impetus to the digital economy or has a visible positive impact on people and society.

Sorama Cam, World's Largest Microphone Array

Guinness World Records has accepted Sorama’s record application for ‘World's Largest Microphone Array’. However, before the World record of 1,024 microphones in a single array is official, two independent experts have to confirm this. The counting takes place on Thursday, August 21, 2014 at Sorama in Eindhoven. On top of this Sorama will attempt to set the record even higher at 4,096 microphones in an array, which is more than four times the existing record held by MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). We think it is worth a try.
