Memory Requirements Reduction Technique for Delay Storage in Real Time Acoustic Cameras

Acoustic cameras are devices capable of displaying a visual representation of sound waves. Typically these devices relay on delay-based techniques, such as Delay and Sum Beamforming, being the calculation of the proper delay values a key component of the system. For real-time systems with a large amount of microphones it is not practical to perform such calculation being common to go for an offline strategy in which the pre-calculated values are stored in memory, allowing a faster dispatch of the data while increasing memory requirements. In this paper we present a technique for delay storage optimization based on various symmetries found within the pre-calculated values that allow a reduction up to almost 16 times over the initial memory requirements.
