Companies show the first AMBEO-certified portable audio recorders with binaural monitoring at NAB
At NAB, Sennheiser has announced a new AMBEO for VR hardware partner: Sound Devices will join the partnership program with its MixPre-6 and MixPre-10T audio recorders. These will be the very first portable recorders to not only feature onboard AMBEO A-B conversion for the AMBEO VR Mic but also AMBEO to binaural decoding for fully immersive binaural headphone monitoring. VR content creators are therefore able to assess immersive audio content right at the time of capture without requiring a post-production workstation.
“Sennheiser is excited to have Sound Devices come on board the partnership program,” commented Véronique Larcher, AMBEO Immersive Audio co-director at Sennheiser. “Offering VR content creators the unique and exciting possibility to directly monitor their spatial recordings exemplifies the spirit of the program: making immersive audio workflows as simple and straightforward as possible for users.”
“We are happy to partner with Sennheiser to provide a high-quality VR recording and monitoring option for our MixPre-6 and MixPre-10T customers,” said Matt Anderson, CEO of Sound Devices. “Sound Devices recorders have been used for Ambisonics field recording for many years, so it was a natural progression for us to bring our MixPre recorders into the new world of VR 360 recording."
The free firmware update—anticipated spring 2018—for the MixPre-6 and MixPre-10T includes:
