Wasn’t it time VR audio became an equal partner to VR video? Enter the AMBEO® VR Mic: The new standard in 3D audio capture from Sennheiser lifting VR audio production to a new professional level. With the AMBEO® VR Mic you are able to seamlessly record sound that immerses the listener bringing them a whole new and highly emotional experience.
The elegantly designed AMBEO® VR Mic has been developed in cooperation with VR content producers and fine-tuned through an extensive creators’ program with participants from across the audio and VR communities. The mic caters exactly to the needs of VR content creators, letting you capture the experience and spirit of any location enabling the listener to be immersed as if they were there.
Much more than just a trademark for Sennheiser 3D audio products, AMBEO® puts a focus on collaboration on many different levels, covering an ever increasing number of immersive audio products and technologies for the entire audio signal chain, from capture to mixing and processing to reproduction. By revealing its strategic focus on 3D audio from very early on, Sennheiser has made AMBEO® an invitation to you, the users and technology partners around the globe, to include your ideas, feedback and requirements in the design of the company’s 3D audio solutions, thus shaping the future of audio together with Sennheiser.
CAPTURE THE WORLD IN A NEW SPATIAL WAY
The easy-to-use AMBEO® VR Mic is an ambisonic microphone fitted with four matched KE 14 capsules in a tetrahedral arrangement. This special design allows you to capture the sound that surrounds you from a single point. As a result you get fully spherical ambisonics sound to match your VR video/spherical 360 content.
BENEFIT FROM A DESIGN DEVELOPED WITH YOU IN MIND
By means of the VR Creators Program Sennheiser made sure to involve the professionals of the industry in the realization of the AMBEO® VR Mic right from the beginning. Thus, we developed a comprehensive product package including many well-conceived accessories that allow for a smooth workflow ¬– not least the A-B encoder software that works as a plugin, which can be seamless embedded in your post-production process.
ENJOY PEACE OF MIND WITH SENNHEISER QUALITY
With its history of 70 years as a trusted and innovative company, developing top-notch professional microphones with high-quality capsules, you are entitled to expect a lot from the Sennheiser brand: reliable, robust German-engineered products. Rest assured: They deliver – and also provide excellent customer support as well as a 2-years warranty with every product.
AMBISONICS – TECHNOLOGY FOR YOU TO SHAPE THE FUTURE OF AUDIO
The AMBEO® VR Mic works with ambisonics, a multi- channel technique that lets you spherically capture the sound arriving from all directions, at a single point in space. For playback this representation is rendered binaurally, allowing you to virtually rotate the orientation of the perspective in all directions, horizontally and vertically. Ambisonics is also supported by all of the major post-production and playback tools on the market today. This makes ambisonics the appropriate tool for Virtual Reality and all other applications involving 3D sound and interactively controlled audio. A tool to create new worlds of sound with.
