AES06SF: 5.1 Surround Microphone On Show

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 company’s successful and patented H2-PRO, Holophone’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, “With 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.�
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. More information:
