HoloPhone and Minnetonka team for Dolby-encoded microphone solution

Holophone, a provider of surround microphones, announced an exclusive deal last week to offer its Dolby Pro Logic II licensed microphones bundled with Minnetonka Audio’s SurCode for Dolby Pro Logic II software.

The deal includes Holphone’s H4 SuperMINI, PortaMic 5.1 and PortaMic Pro surround microphones. The mics integrate with Minnetonka Audio’s SurCode for Dolby Pro Logic II to offer a streamlined workflow for users. The software works with both Macintosh and Windows computers.

SurCode for Dolby Pro Logic II digitally encodes 5.1 surround for stereo delivery formats. The SurCode software matrix encoder allows broadcasters to easily encode 5.1 surround mixes into stereo sound files. Surround ambiences, sound effects and music stems can all be pre-encoded for delivery within stereo cues, and the resulting mix is completely stereo-compatible.

Holophone’s H4 SuperMINI is ideal for broadcast, ENG and video applications. The mic easily captures 5.1 channels of audio and converts them into a stereo recording utilizing the mic’s integrated Dolby Pro Logic II encoder. The PortaMic 5.1 is a compact microphone designed for studio or field recording for documentary or ENG. Six separate mic elements are arranged to correspond with the typical 5.1 speaker setup in a studio or home theater.

The SurCode for Dolby Pro Logic II software will be available bundled with Holophone products at a discounted price and can be purchased through Holophone’s network of authorized dealers.
