Toronto, ON (March 31, 2004)–Holophone, a division of Rising Sun Productions, Ltd., will launch its first commercial product, the Holophone H2-PRO surround sound microphone, next month at the NAB Show in Las Vegas, April 19 – 22. The H2-PRO surround sound microphone improves upon Holophone’s beta system with a sleek new design that maintains the patented “head” shape, adds eight channel recording capability (5.1-channels plus a top channel and a center-rear channel), and has an improved connector and handle.
The easy to use Holophone H2-PRO is a stand-alone surround sound microphone designed specifically for audio professionals to capture up to eight channels of discrete surround sound. It features eight XLR microphone connectors, which are entirely compatible with all multichannel I/O devices such as hard disc recorders, preamplifiers, and mixing boards that supply phantom power. Holophone has simplified the product by eliminating the additional components from the beta version of the Holophone system–the PCM-7 preamp/controller, PCD-7 preamp/cable driver, and the MPS-1 power supply. Users can plug the Holophone H2-PRO directly into their own equipment and be recording quickly and easily.
Priced at $6,000, the Holophone H2-PRO will begin shipping by July of this year.
NAB attendees can check out the innovative device for recording discrete surround sound, for use in all professional audio applications, at NAB. Holophone is partnering with SRS Labs at NAB, and both companies can be found at booth #N1502, located just inside the door to the North Hall off the main concourse of the LVCC.
