5.1 The Easy Way

The Sennheiser Esfera microphone provides 5.1 surround sound from just two channels, making complicated surround microphone installations a thing of the past. The system consists of a high-quality stereo microphone, and uses Sennheiser’s RF condenser technology. An associated 19 in rack-mount processing unit converts the stereo signal into a complete 5.1 signal – anywhere in the production workflow, whether in real time or during post production. The compact size of the microphone unit and the versatile connectivity of the processing unit ensure that Esfera can easily be integrated into existing workflows.
