IBC 2017: Sennheiser AMBEO interface for VR audio to be included in Aaton Digital location sound recorders
Aaton Digital (Stand 12.F30) has announced a partnership under which Sennheiser’s (Stands 8.D50 and 8.F18) AMBEO technology interface for VR and AR audio will be included in Aaton’s Cantar X3 and CantarMini location sound recorders.
At the show, Sennheiser announced its AMBEO for VR Partnership Program, which has been created to ensure seamless workflows for VR and AR productions. The program encompasses collaborations with acclaimed manufacturers of field recorders, VR live cameras and live-streaming software, mixing plug-ins, and VR platforms.
Aaton Digital CEO Jacques Delacoux says, “VR is an exciting development with enormous potential, and we are delighted to collaborate with Sennheiser to add this VR-enabling interface to our latest Aaton Digital location sound recorders Cantar X3 and CantarMini.”
The Cantar X3 and CantarMini digital multitrack sound recorders are in use globally for movie and broadcast production and also for music recording.
“The future of audio is in immersive-sound experience, and perhaps this is nowhere more apparent than in the field of VR,” says Véronique Larcher, co-director, AMBEO, Sennheiser. “With the launch of the AMBEO VR mic last year, we have provided an easy-to-use tool for 3D-audio productions, while our AMBEO Blueprints website provides ample information on recording and mixing 3D audio. Now our new partnership program helps content creators to design the full VR experience with ease.”
