Holophone say their H3-D is easy to use and aggressively priced 07/10/06
Holophone say that surround sound is emerging as the industry standard for HDTV, HD radio and other audio applications and that their H3-D Surround Microphone is looking to bring the technology into markets where it was previously too complicated or expensive.
Utilizing the same technology as the companyâ€™s successful and patented H2-PRO, Holophoneâ€™s H3-D is a portable 5.1 multi-channel surround sound microphone that is manufactured to automatically deliver 5.1 channels with no external mixing or signal manipulation required. Holophone say that the H3-D is an excellent choice for professional applications, its aggressive price point and ease-of-use making it ideal for growing technology markets such as project studios, education, and houses of worship.
Michael Godfrey, president and founder of Holophone told us, â€œWith the demand for surround recordings continuously increasing, industry newcomers and veterans are looking for a technology that provides superior sound reproduction that is easy to use. The H3-D is a great way to be introduced to recording in surround sound in that with minimal monitoring and set-up time you can capture a recording that provides listeners with the feeling of really being there.â€�
Custom-designed to support 5.1 surround-sound recording devices, the H3-D has a multi-directional pickup pattern with 20Hz-20KHz frequency response on five perimeter channels and a discrete LFE microphone located inside. The microphone is phantom powered with an LED indicator. Attached to the H3-D is a 15 ft. (5m) Monster cable that terminates in a 6-pin Neutrik XLR connector. A Windscreen and Pistol Grip are optional accessories. Pricing and Availability:
The H3-D retails for $1,695.
