This page summarizes the new features, improvements and other changes that have been implemented in Echoview 5.4 which specifically affect the use of data from Kongsberg echosounders.

Support for the M3 file format (.imb/.nnn)

Introducing support for the Kongsberg M3 file format output by the M3 multimode multibeam imaging sonar. Refer to Kongsberg data files for more information.

Note: Kongsberg M3 file format support prior to Echoview version 5.4.105 incorrectly reversed the orientation of the beams on the echogram.
