Designed by software engineers and tailored to bat biologists' research needs, Kaleidoscope is an integrated suite of bat data tools designed to help you quickly convert files, sort and categorize bat data by species, verify your findings, visualize your work and easily transform it into reports. Kaleidoscope has been called a tremendous time-saver for analysis work.

Kaleidoscope uses proprietary algorithms to quickly analyze all of your recordings. The software now creates groups of similar sounds – called clusters – and they eliminate hours of tedious work. Simply examine each cluster using the Kaleidoscope Viewer. View. Listen. Identify. And when you find a cluster that’s important, name it and save it.

Easy File Conversion

Kaleidoscope makes short work of converting files. This powerful – and free – feature can convert many nights of call data in a matter of minutes. Its acoustic scrubbing feature filters false triggers, anthropogenic noise, and non-biological sounds such as rain, wind.

Do you work with full-spectrum files but want to see them in zero-crossing? No problem. Files convert with a click of the mouse.


Automatic Species Identification

Combined with Kaleidoscope Auto ID software's bat classifiers, you can identify and verify gigabytes of files in minutes. We designed the software to allow extremely efficient reviewing of the identification results. The Viewer will work with any full-spectrum, time-expansion or zero-crossing recordings.



Flexible Viewer

The Kaleidoscope Viewer is a significant advancement in bat call spectrogram analysis. Not only is the Viewer faster and easier to use than competing software, it features the most advanced, flexible and easily customizable spectrogram on the market. The spectrogram view is truly the most stunning display of bat echolocations we have ever seen. The technology can also create and overlay zero-crossing information right on the spectrogram, providing even more data for quick review of bat recordings.

The Kaleidoscope Viewer has additional features that help you quickly identify, categorize and filter bat data. You can look for the subtleties in the shapes of calls, examine bat passes in compressed and real-time views, change contrast and review files in full-spectrum or zero-crossing with the touch of a button.


Reporting Made Easy

Kaleidoscope will compile, verify your results so you can seamlessly load them into an Excel pivot table.
