NEW! NEVATON VR – AMBISONIC MICROPHONE

3,999.00 excl. VAT

The Nevaton VR is an ambisonic microphone, designed for 360° spatial recordings in the highest quality. The Nevaton VR delivers Ambisonics A-format, a four channel output, which can be easily converted to Ambisonic B-format with most of the major DAWs on the market, plugins or decoders. Dedicated filtersets for format conversion (Ambisonics A to B format) are available! (see below).

A perfect microphone for all applications involving 3D sound, fully compatible with systems like VR Game Engines or 360° social media platforms.

Description

The Nevaton VR is an ambisonic microphone (four capsules in a tetrahedral arrangement), designed for 360° spatial recordings in the highest quality.

Decades of engineering experience in manufacturing top-of-the-range microphones are condensed in this new model.

The NEVATON VR  features:

  • Incredibly low self-noise (4dBA)
  • Ability to handle very high sound-pressure levels (142dB)
  • Switchable attenuation: -10dB
    Note: The -10 dB reduction is achieved by decreasing the polarization voltage (from 60 V to 20 V).
    —> This additionally allows the membrane to respond quickly to very loud sounds!
  • Switchable Low-cut filter (80Hz, 6dB/Oct)
  • Heated capsules (for parameter stability in diverse climatic conditions):  Two switchable heating modes:4mA or 8mA heating current
  • Using the 8 mA switch position also allows to use long cable-runs (length of more than 200 meters)
  • RF filter against radio interference
  • Switchable LED – the LED can be switched off, useful for filmed stage performances etc.

The microphone comes with a 10pin -> 4 XLR3 cable, with a standard cable length of 3 m (longer cables upon request)

An additional cable (10pin->10pin) for the output from the windscreen is also available.

Dedicated filtersets for format conversion (Ambisonics A to B format) are available:

They have been developed by Professor Angelo Farina, a capacity on the field of Ambisonics and acoustic researcher at the University of Parma.  You can download the filtersets hereDOWNLOAD
