Electroacoustics and sound reinforcement, voice alarm
With the Design Engine, speakers (from the octave-based speaker databases) can be positioned, aligned, leveled, delayed, and equalized in the model.
With ULYSSES you can calculate the level distribution of direct and diffused sound and the overall sound pressure level for voice alarm systems (SAA) according to VDE 0833-4 and EN60849 or EN50848 and other parameters.
With ULYSSES the speech intelligibility values eg. (STI, ALcons) for voice alarm systems (SAA) to VDE 0833-4 and EN60849 EN50848 and other parameters are calculated.
Calculations of ray tracing and energy time curve (ETC), Schröder integration and auralizations (audible) are also possible.
In addition, reverberation times and intelligibility values can be determined from ray tracing and results can be made audible.
ULYSSES is switchable from metric (metric units such as m) to imperial (US units such as feet)
There is also a ULYSSES version with English user interface available. In both language versions, units can be metric (metric units such as m) are switched to imperial (US units such as feet).
Saving and exporting models requires a license for the ULYSSES Design Engine.
A demo version for testing all functions, but without the ability to save and export projects is also available.
Operating Systems, Hardware, Licensing
ULYSSES can be installed on all Microsoft Windows 32 and 64 bit operating systems (Win 95 through Win 10).
Of course, ULYSSES also runs on Mac OS and on Linux (with WINE etc.) 32 and 64 bit operating systems as well as on virtual machines..
The hardware requirements are minimal. ULYSSES runs on 256MB RAM on almost all processors starting at 486DX. The free space on the hard disk should be at least 500MB.
On modern hardware, the simulation calculations are correspondingly faster. So: the faster the processor, the faster it can be simulated.
A mouse, a trackball, a touchpad, etc., and a keyboard with function keys (F1-F12) are highly recommended because of the input capabilities in the 3D CAD engine!
The graphics card must have at least one high-color card with min. 800x600 pixels.
For auralizations (auditioning), a sound card with 16Bit / 44.1kHz adjustment is required.
ULYSSES must be installed locally and can not be installed or run on a server as a server-client service.
ULYSSES licenses are always assigned to a computer and are tied directly to the hardware of the computer.
If you need to format or change the hard disk, or if you want to use another computer, they will change Computer identification number. and you need new, matching license number. This matching license no. need to be special for the "New" or "modified" machine will be generated. Registered full-version users will only be charged a processing fee for a full calendar year no more licenses are renewed than you own in total.
