Zylia To Unveil New Product For 360 Recording And Mixing At AES

Zylia will announce a new hardware-based solution for more mobile high-quality 3rd order Ambisonics and ambient audio recordings at AES in New York City. 

Zylia said the new product will build on the ZYLIA ZM-1 microphone array and the company's suite of software designed to simplify capture and creation of entire sound scenes.

The ZM-1 is capable of delivering 48 kHz/24-bit resolution while capturing the full spatial sound scene. The spherical ZM-1 uses 19 MEMS sensors, distributed around the portable device, to capture the whole 360-degree audio scene in a way that genuinely represents real-world sound.

When using the ZM-1 in combination with Zylia Studio software, users can record their performances and create immersive 360-degree sound scenes for 360/VR/AR and games projects in Higher Order Ambisonics (HOA) format. With a single click, users can easily map the recorded scene to several surround standards and presets (stereo narrow, wide, binaural, 5.1, 7.1, 5.4.1 and 22.2).
