Holophone Releases Enhanced H2-Pro Surround Sound Microphone
Holophone®, the leading manufacturer of surround microphones, has unveiled a new version of the popular H2-PRO Microphone. The ground-breaking 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 $5499 through May 15. Holophone will also donate $500 from each unit sold to ONE, the world's leading organization in the fight against world poverty.
"We are thrilled to be launching our enhanced microphone," says Jonathan Godfrey, CEO of Holophone. "One unit is usually all that is required to capture the ambience of any event or venue and deliver that 'being there' experience to the viewer. More importantly, we get to help a great cause. The fight against world hunger is crucial and we are happy to be on the front line."
As a single point-source, the H2-PRO utilizes 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, 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.). An upgrade program is available for current H2-PRO owners.
This microphone was announced on April 1, 2006.
