Montreal Science Centre captures audio with Holophone microphon

The Montréal Science Centre has chosen the Holophone H2-PRO surround microphone for exhibition in its new technology showcase.

The idea behind the technology showcase is to explain the invention process along with how current innovations are shaping the way we live. The H2-PRO is one of 23 innovations included in the exhibit, which span a variety of functions from digitization, to shape memory, to sound recording. All inventions selected for the showcase were created by Canadians and were introduced within the last three years.

With one H2-PRO microphone set up in a single location, audio professionals can record an accurate surround mix which mirror’s the typical home theater setup found in viewers’ living rooms. Prior to the introduction of the H2-PRO, the same project would have required multiple microphones set up in various locations.

Using eight microphones encased in an elliptical enclosure that mimics the acoustics found in the human head, the mic provides listeners with the feeling of being there when recording anything from live sporting events, to concerts, to sound effects for a feature film.

The technology showcase is part of the center’s permanent display, which is free to the public.
