Holophone has unveiled a new version of its H2-PRO microphone. The H2-PRO, capable of recording up to 7.1 channels of discrete surround sound, is now offered with enhanced low-frequency effects (LFE). With the enhanced LFE, the H2-PRO effectively permits a higher output level of deep bass information without imposing on the performance or levels of the rest of the system.
Ideal for instant capture of live surround sound for all professional audio applications, the H2-PRO is available at a special price of $5,499 through May 15, and will be on display at the NAB convention in Las Vegas, April 24 to 27 (booth #3931). Holophone will also donate $500 from each unit sold to ONE, an organization in the fight against world poverty.
As a single-point source, the H2-PRO uses the theories of head-related transfer function (HRTF) to capture 7.1 channels of discrete surround sound audio in a single, cost-effective unit. The enhanced H2-PRO features eight XLR microphone connectors that 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.). An upgrade program is available for current H2-PRO owners.
