Holophone H3-D mic captures surround sound
Holophone's new H3-D portable and economical 5.1 multichannel professional surround-sound microphone is based on the company's existing H2-PRO. It's ideal for broadcast, recording and studio applications.
Holophone surround-sound technology has been used for numerous national and international broadcasts, including the Grammy Awards and NFL Super Bowl.
The H3-D instantly eliminates the need for difficult, expensive and time-consuming multiple-microphone surround set-ups. Custom-designed to support 5.1 surround-sound recording devices, the mic provides 3-D surround audio.
The H3-D is a six-channel discrete microphone automatically delivers 5.1 channels with no external mixing or signal manipulation needed. It includes a multi-directional pickup pattern with 20Hz to 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 15ft Monster cable that terminates in a six-pin Neutrik XLR connector. A Windscreen and Pistol Grip are optional accessories.
