Solid State Logic’s S500, S300 and TCR System T broadcast mixing consoles will now feature onboard Ambeo A-B conversion for the Sennheiser Ambeo VR Mic.

System T, the new generation of broadcast audio production systems from Solid State Logic, now features Ambeo A-B conversion for accepting direct input from the VR Mic.

The Ambeo VR Mic is a tool for providing the 3D audio basis in immersive audio productions. The signals from the Ambisonics microphone can now directly be fed into SSL’s System T consoles.

The Ambeo A-B converter works hand in hand with SSL’s 360 transcoder. While the former provides the processing-ready B-format from the Ambeo VR Mic, the latter converts this signal to a broad range of output formats and loudspeaker arrangements, ranging from 4.0. to 5.1.4 and 7.1.4.

Broadcast engineers will be able to record and process immersive content with far greater ease, and without the need for any additional physical equipment.
