Zoom innovates with VR sound recording

Techstination feature for Thursday, December 6, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     A company called Zoom has been making top notch portable sound recording gear for years.    I’ve been among their many customers.    Now Zoom is out with a unique conical shaped portable recorder, the H3-VR designed for virtual reality…capturing truly immersive sound from every direction.    Product specialist Samuel Greene says it makes what was a complicated and expensive task much more easy and affordable...

“So the H3-VR has your ambisonics four channel microphone built right on top.  Put in an SD card, you power with batteries.  And so it can capture those four channels of audio and encode it into the proper 360 degree sound field.”

The price…about 350 dollars.   If you’re into creating VR, or want to capture surround sound in a room or outdoors, the Zoom H3-VR is a great solution.
