Sennheiser Launches AMBEO for VR Partnership Program

Sennheiser announced its “AMBEO for VR” Partnership Program, which was created to ensure problem-free production workflows for VR and AR productions using AMBEO equipment with third party devices.

Sennheiser said the program encompasses collaborations with manufacturers of field recorders, VR live cameras and platforms, mixing plug-ins and live streaming software.

“With the launch of the AMBEO VR Mic last year we have provided an easy-to-use tool for 3D audio productions, while our AMBEO Blueprints website provides ample information on recording and mixing 3D audio,” said Véronique Larcher, co-director AMBEO at Sennheiser. “Now our new partnership program helps content creators to design the full VR experience with ease.”

The first group of members to join the AMBEO group include ZoomAaton DigitalOrah, Sphericam, Noise Makers and Harpex.

Zoom and Aaton Digital will include AMBEO software in their audio recorders.

In the area of VR cameras and live streaming, Orah and Sphericam have joined. Noise Makers is an AMBEO partner for VR mixing plug-ins.

Harpex’s Harpex-X signal processing algorithm aims at extracting the maximum amount of spatial information from sound field recordings, with a Harpex plug-in converting the AMBEO VR Mic’s A-format signal into the standard surround and 3D surround formats used in film and television, binaural stereo and VR and AR applications.
