Sennheiser intros Ambeo VR mic in Middle East

AMBEO VR Mic

Sennheiser has introduced Ambeo VR handheld microphone for VR production to the Middle East market.

The Ambeo VR Mic is an Ambisonics microphone that uses four matched capsules in a tetrahedral arrangement. It is fully balanced and powered by 4x 48 volts phantom powering. 

Sennheiser’s handheld microphone comes with a split cable with four colour-coded and labelled XLR connectors according to the capsule position, a Rycote suspension mount and a foam windshield. 

Encoding software, which translates the A format file generated from the recording of the four microphone channels into a B format file W, X, Y and Z, is also included. This format is recognised in the Ambisonics world, the W component being the omni and the X, Y, Z components being figure-of-eight capsules along three spatial axes. The A to B format encoder will be available in VST, AAX and AU plug-ins.
