The Norsonic Nor848A sets a new standard for acoustical cameras. The large number of microphones eliminates the problems of ghost-spots, compared to traditional acoustic cameras where the relatively low number of microphones increases the side lobe effect, resulting in the so called ghost-spot effect. You measure a non existing source. The Nor848A software is extremely intuitive and easy to use. Just after a few minutes of training, the user is able to operate the system and do real measurements. Two camera frontends are available.


A 0.4 meter array hodling 128 microphones,  1 meter array holding 256 microphones and a 1.6 meter array with 384 microphones! The system enables the user to perform noise analysis with a clear view of the spatial distribution of the sound in real time! The system is easy to set up in the field. Just power the self-contained unit from mains or battery and connect the LAN cable to the computer. The system is ready to measure in just a few minutes after entering the site.



  •  Robust camera front-end based on a circular carbon fiber disc, three sizes available: 
    - 128 microphones 0.4 meter array, only 5.5 lbs. (2.5 kg) in weight
    - 256 microphones 1 meter array,  only 24 lbs. (11 kg) in weight
    - 384 microphones 1.6 meter array for lower frequency analysis
  • No interface box between array and laptop, direct connection with LAN cable
  • Listen to and analyze real time audio from virtual microphone position
  • Virtual microphone enables you to listen to the sound contribution from any source real time, filtered with your selected frequency range
  • Microphones on a disc prevent sound and echo from behind
  • Low self-noise and large measurement range
  • RPM option for analyzing rotating machines.
  • High-performance optical video camera are included in the camera front-end unit
  • The distribution of the high number of microphones ensures high resolving power and reduces the problems due to side lobe effects compared to most other acoustic cameras
  • Digital microphones ensure large dynamic range and high stability
  • Simple connection to the included  MacBook Pro computer through a single LAN-cable.
  • All parts are integrated in the camera frontend – no need for a signal processing  interface box
  • Operated on mains or DC input
  • Records the signal from every microphone
