Featuring four built-in mics arranged in an Ambisonic array, the Zoom H3-VR audio recorder makes it easier than ever to capture full-sphere surround sound recordings. Immersive audio is critical for virtual reality productions, and the H3-VR recorder's three recording modes allow you to capture the audio you need for any project. Record at up to 24-bit/96kHz in Ambisonic surround, stereo binaural, or standard stereo formats. You can record to an external SD card (up to 512GB) or directly to a computer via USB 2.0. And with its Auto Mic Position Detection, you can expect balanced and consistent recordings every time with the Zoom H3-VR 360-degree VR audio recorder.
If you've been producing virtual reality content, then you know what it normally takes to capture great Ambisonic surround audio: a dedicated Ambisonic mic, a separate recorder, and a computer for encoding from Ambisonics A format to Ambisonics B. With the Zoom H3-VR, all of the encoding and decoding is built in, making it an all-in-one solution for capturing full-sphere surround audio for your projects. We've been impressed with the audio quality here at Sweetwater, and with its Auto Mic Position Detection technology, you can expect consistent sonic results in any recording application.
With its four-capsule Ambisonic mic, the H3-VR captures stellar 360-degree VR audio at up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution. But that's not all â€” you can also record stereo binaural WAV files up to 24-bit/48kHz resolution, enhancing your 2D productions with 3D audio.You can also capture standard stereo files if your recordings are intended to be played from speakers instead of headphones. Finally, you can download the Zoom Ambisonics Player software to easily convert your Ambisonics records to 5.1 surround sound for standard video purposes.
