The Holophone H4 SuperMINI is a uniquely designed camera mountable microphone designed to achieve professional 5.1 surround audio capturing and monitoring. This breakthrough system offers an integrated multichannel preamplifier, virtual surround headphone monitor and matrix surround encoder in a compact package; mountable on any professional quality video camera.
The microphone capsule features six elements that are capable of sending signal to a matrix encoded, stereo analog output. Six line-level outputs (L, R, C, LFE, LS, RS) provide a pre-encoded alternative for isolating surround signal to discrete tracks on multitrack recorders, external surround processors, mixers, etc. Virtual Surround Monitoring provides a virtual 3-D representation of surround encoded audio signal on standard stereo headphones.
A center-channel input connection may be used for connecting a mono microphone, such as a shotgun or lavalier microphone, in order to enhance sonic opportunity options. The Holophone H4 SuperMINI is a powerful tool that brings surround sound recording, encoding and monitoring capabilities into the hands of video camera operators.
