The new A-Format microphone captures both stereo and surround sound, making it ideal for the broadcast and audio recording markets. It is powered by standard 48 B phantom power and incorporates four low-noise, studio grade condenser capsules. A short breakout cable outputs audio at mic level on four balanced XLRs, making its compatible with other equipment.
The SPS200 also the first SoundField microphone that doesn’t need an accompanying control unit. All the processing — such as the A to B-Format conversion, stereo and surround sound decoding/manipulation — takes place in the Surround Zone software, which comes packaged with the microphone.
