Rooms with bad acoustics make it difficult for listeners to understand and concentrate on what is being said. Modern meeting rooms and classrooms feature white boards, large monitors and furniture that reflect sound without adding acoustic absorption. NTI Audio’s Room Acoustics Reporter is a PC software for automatically generating reverberation time measurement reports of RT60. It provides acoustic targets based on a space’s intended use and volume as defined in the DIN 18041 standard. In addition, Room Acoustics Reporter updates empty room reverberation time measurements (the typical test configuration) with the absorption that would be added by people being in the room. Finally, the PC software predicts the improvement in reverberation time of various alternative acoustical treatments on the ceiling, walls and floor. Predictions are based on RT60 measurements, and the absorption characteristics of panels provided by manufacturers.
