For 3D productions, the Ambeo VR mic from Sennheiser and the binaural KU 100 dummy head from Neumann are available both on stand and at a display in the IBC Future Zone.
The company recognises that the field of 3D audio is an innovative media format that is growing in importance. It is the key to immersing listeners into new audio worlds and to completing the perfect illusion in virtual reality applications
Ambeo VR was developed in co-operation with VR content producers and fine-tuned through an extensive creators’ programme with participants from across the audio and VR communities.
It is an ambisonic microphone fitted with four matched KE 14 capsules in a tetrahedral arrangement. This design allows the capture of sound that surrounds the listener from a single point with fully spherical ambisonics sound to match the VR video/spherical 360 content, said Sennheiser.
