Holophone introduces two new surround mics at IBC2008

Holophone introduced two new products at the recent IBC2008 in Amsterdam. The H2-5.1 provides the power and audio quality of the H2-PRO in an affordable 5.1 package, while the H5-X is a high-end 5.0 surround microphone.

Ideal for productions solely requiring professional, discrete 5.1 surround recording, the H2-5.1 is based on the H2-PRO. It features six DPA microphones arranged to correspond with the typical 5.1 speaker setup, allowing the H2-5.1 to capture, from a single point, an accurate 5.1 surround recording with no signal manipulation. The mic’s six channels of audio are output to six separate XLR connectors. The H2-5.1 is an affordable way to add 5.1 surround recording to a variety of broadcast projects such as sporting events, concerts and ENG.

For productions that require a more detailed 7.1 or 6.1 format, Holophone will continue to offer the H2-PRO, with such enhanced features as eight XLR microphone connectors, which are entirely compatible with all multichannel I/O devices. It is also compatible with all surround-sound encoding/playback formats (Dolby, DTS, Circle Surround, IMAX, etc.).

Holophone also offered IBC attendees a sneak peak at its new H5-X, a high-end 5.0 surround microphone. Designed specifically with critical recording situations in mind, the H5-X features five high-quality, small-diaphragm mic elements arranged to help capture recordings that have high-spec and a low noise floor. This H5-X is ideal for highly detailed 5.0 surround recordings where minimal background noise is required. Similar to other microphones in the Holophone line, the H5-X captures from a single point for professional-grade recording with minimal setup time.

The H5-X will offer a variety of connection options. Its head is detachable from the multichannel audio snake via a high-quality 24K gold multipin connector that allows for multiple cabling options. The H5-X is expected to come to market in late 2009.

The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
