Celebrating 35 years at the heart of broadcast audio technology and proud
sponsors of the Audio Room, HHB arrives at BVE with a full complement of
the very latest innovations in microphone and portable recording technology.
As the field of audio acquisition continues to undergo dramatic change, HHB
is the first point of contact for broadcasters and independent sound
recordists in search of the latest product news.
New at BVE is the SoundField ST450, a portable location microphone system
which generates audio in any format including mono, stereo, 5.1 surround and
beyond, without the need for more than one microphone. Comprising of
separate microphone module and control unit, which can be positioned up to
200m apart, the ST450 provides surround and stereo simultaneously, and
incorporates a new approach to converting the information captured by its
four-capsule array into multiple audio formats.
Also brand new at the HHB Stand C40 is the Røde VideoMic Pro, a compact,
lightweight and highly affordable new camera-mounting shotgun microphone.
The new VideoMic Pro joins the full range of Røde NTG shotgun microphones,
all of which have gained a reputation for uncompromising performance, belied
by their affordable prices.
Completing HHB's display of acquisition tools are the latest portable
recorders from Olympus, Roland, Zoom and, of course, HHB's own FlashMic
Digital Recording Microphone, now in use with more than 10,000 broadcast and
news organisations worldwide.
"HHB¹s expertise in location recording is widely known," comments HHB
Director of Sales Martin O¹Donnell. "As demand for surround sound
acquisition grows, it is natural for customers presently working in stereo
to contact us for advice on the best surround sound options for location
sound, sports OB and live events".
