Introducing Echo Meter Touch. Bat detection and analysis for your iPad and iPhone.

“In the middle of the Tasmania winter we took the Echo Meter Touch out and found a hive of forest bat (Vespadelus sp.) activity over a local lagoon! It was incredible to be able to have 7 people see the calls on the tablet while the bats foraged in front of us!” – Lisa C. Echo Meter Touch user.

Leveraging the power of Apple’s iOS platform, the Echo Meter Touch provides bat professionals unprecedented features and ease-of-use. The Echo Meter Touch has all the tools needed to identify species in the field:

- Stunning, full-color, zoomable spectrograms.
- Ability to listen to bats in real time with unparalleled fidelity.
- Recordings that match detectors costing thousands of dollars more.
- Onboard bat auto-identification using our Kaleidoscope algorithms.
- The number crunching power to accurately identify a bat to species in seconds.
- GPS tracking that tags all recordings in real-time with location information.

The Hardware
The Ultrasonic Module is an engineering tour de force. Compact enough to slip into a shirt pocket, it is made up of premium grade ultrasonic sensor, custom preamp and gain circuitry, an analog-to-digital converter and a microprocessor. The microprocessor streams the data in real-time and at 256 kHz to your compatible iPad or iPhone. Simply plug the Ultrasonic Module into the Lightning Connector of your iOS device and you can immediately start monitoring, recording and analysing bat echolocations.

The Software
Something remarkable about the spectrogram. The full-color spectrogram is incredibly detailed and easy to view. You can scroll through call data with a swipe of your finger. Pinch and zoom the spectrograms for different views while you continue to monitor and record.

Combined with the Ultrasonic Module, the Echo Meter Touch app has everything you need to monitor, record and identify bats in the field.

The app lets you listen to bats in real-time and simultaneously view them on a full-color, full-spectrogram and waveform plot. Wildlife Acoustics' patented Real-Time Expansion (RTE) lets you listen to echolocations in real-time while maintaining the timing and tonality of the bat echolocation. You can also listen to prior echolocations using RTE or traditional time expansion (slow playback).

If you have an iPhone or an iPad that is GPS enabled, Echo Meter Touch will tag your recordings with useful location data.

The free Echo Meter Touch app is available on the Apple App Store. It includes two bat recordings that let you start practicing with your iOS device right away.

The app can transfer full spectrum .wav recordings to your computer over a wireless network or cabled through iTunes. Using Wi-Fi, Echo Meter Touch bundles the recordings in a compressed .zip folder and allows downloads by entering a URL in a web browser. Combined with the Auto-ID upgrade, you can identify the species of the bat in the recording and export it with the recording.

The integral Bat Auto-ID feature allows you to quickly identify species in the field. Using our Kaleidoscope Pro algorithms and the latest classifiers; which will be regularly updated as they become available, the Echo Meter Touch is a very powerful, fast and convenient tool for on-site professional bat work.
