Zoom H3-VR

Zoom H3-VRVirtual reality audio recorder is the complete solution for capturing and processing spatial audio for VR, AR and mixed-reality content. With a built-in Ambisonic mic, recorder and decoder, the H3-VR puts 360-audio in the palm of your hand. In the past, capturing VR audio required a dedicated Ambisonic mic, a separate recorder and a computer for encoding the audio from raw Ambisonics A format to VR-ready Ambisonics B format. Now, with the H3-VR, all of the encoding and decoding is done on board, saving time, money and effort at every step. 4 built-in mics arranged in an Ambisonic array. Full-sphere surround sound recording. Single-knob gain control of all input levels. Onboard Ambisonics A to B decoding. Three recording modes: Ambisonics, Stereo Binaural or Standard Stereo. Record up to 24 bit/96 kHz. Stereo binaural monitoring of Ambisonics signal. Headphone output and line output. Slate tone. Extensive metadata. Auto Mic Position Detection using 6-axis gyroscope (upfront, endfire, upside-down, endfire inverted). Level Function to ensure precise angle placement. Wireless iOS remote control available through the BTA-1 Bluetooth adapter. Onboard Ambisonics playback with audio rotation. Accurate internal clock with .5ppm discrepancy. USB 2.0 Audio Interface Mode. Zoom PC/Mac post-production software to play, change a direction, and convert to binaural, stereo,and 5.1ch surround file. Powered by 2 AA batteries or USB bus power.
