Experience acoustics - Everywhere
With the new Virtual Reality App Knauf TOPview you can look around in different rooms, experience and perceive the visual effect of acoustic ceilings and discover how the perception of space is improved considerably, e.g. by the installation of perforated ceilings.
Abstract terms such as
- reverberation time,
- sound level and
- intelligibility of voices
become comprehensible as they can be experienced directly.
Simply download the App, insert your Smartphone into a Google Cardboard viewer and you are ready to go. No glasses to hand? No problem! You can use the App without glasses too. Just select the Display mode.
Using the new Measure acoustics function, you can measure and display the reverberation time of any room and use acoustical measures which can be implemented to achieve the specifications according to DIN or to achieve a reverberation time that is perceived to be pleasant.
You can quickly and easily get an impression of whether an acoustically effective installation or retrofit is worthwhile, and what scope is available in terms of the required surface, the choice of products and the design.
