The H4 SuperMINI, the world’s first camera-mountable surround microphone, provides users with the an easy means to capture surround sound for a variety of broadcast situations, including multi-camera setups for Point of View (POV) shots, live multi-channel interviews, films, sports, and documentaries. With little calibration required, the five microphone elements encapsulated in the H4 SuperMINI’s mic head effortlessly capture 5.1 channels of audio (left, right, center, left surround, right surround).
The company has further simplified surround recording by incorporating a Dolby Laboratories’ Dolby® Pro Logic II® encoder into the mic’s multichannel pre-amplifier, and monitor. Any 5.1 recording made by the H4 SuperMINI is encoded to stereo utilizing Dolby Pro Logic II encoding technology and then can be easily decoded utilizing a Dolby Pro Logic II or Dolby PRO Logic II — compatible decoding device.
