Reverberation Chamber

Our reverberation chamber facilitates evaluation and measurement of the absorption characteristics of small- and large-scale materials. The room is graphically mapped in all dimensions and fully interfaced to the rest of our facility via a high-resolution network.

When used in conjunction with our advanced testing tools, the chamber assists in experiments that include aural identification and localization of absorptive surfaces, systematic physical and perceptual assessment of absorption parameters, noise simulation, measurement, and evaluation, and more. Used on its own, the chamber facilitates the generation of natural reverberation effects for a variety of recording contexts and courses, as well as the systematic comparison and assessment of naturally versus artificially generated reverberation effects.
