Zoom has introduced the H3-VR Virtual Reality Audio Recorder – a complete system for capturing 360° audio.
The H3-VR records four channels of audio, using a 4-capsule Ambisonics mic. The H3-VR can also playback stereo files both in standard and binaural modes.
A 6-axis motion sensor provides the H3-VR with Auto Mic Position and Level Detection, so however you position the recorder from scene to scene, your 360 audio and video orientations will stay aligned.
Here’s a 360° interactive audio + video example:
Note: Depending on your browser and device, you may need to view the above video on Youtube in order to be able to use the interactive features.
