TSL Products is to showcase a range of its SoundField surround sound microphones, control units and upmix/downmix processors at BVE 2014 on Stand H25.
The company's lineup will include the DSF-B Digital Broadcast System, the ST450 Portable Microphone System, the DSF-1 Digital Performance Microphone System, along with the UPM-1 Upmix Processor and the X-1 Combined Upmix/Downmix Processor.
"Our line of SoundField products provides users with the ability to easily capture exceptional surround sound recordings from our single point source four-element microphones as well as the ability to upmix existing stereo material with our UPM-1 or X-1," says SoundField Product Manager Pieter Schillebeeckx.
The DSF-B Digital Broadcast System, consisting of a DSF-2 surround microphone, DSF-2 controller and DSF-3 processor, can generate multi-channel audio from a single point source. The microphone parameters can be controlled remotely using the DSF-2 controller, including orientation, angle, pickup pattern and rotation.
The ST450 Portable Microphone System is battery-powered and fitted with a heating element that drives out moisture. It also produces simultaneous stereo and B-Format (SoundField's proprietary surround format) outputs for post production. All inputs and outputs are located on the same side of the control unit for easy access and connectivity when in the field.
The DSF-1 Digital Performance Microphone System is aimed at performance recording applications on stage or in the studio and is able to remotely change its pickup pattern and record all instruments simultaneously.
The control unit allows the user to rotate, end fire or invert the microphone without physical handling. Parameters can be tweaked after recording with the SurroundZone2 plug-in.
The UPM-1 Upmix Processor has a unique algorithm to perform detailed real-time analysis of stereo source material, identifying and separating the ambience from the direct sound. With only five physical rotary controls to manage all upmix parameters, the UPM-1 is suitable for OB applications or broadcast studios working in 5.1 surround.
The new X-1 Combined Upmix/Downmix Processor accurately handles ingest of surround material into a stereo workflow, while providing a phase-coherent reconstruction of the original surround signal for HD broadcast.
