Nomono Sound Capsule Now Shipping

News Image
Nomono has announced its groundbreaking Nomono Sound Capsule, a cloud-connected, self-contained recording kit for capturing audio in the field, is now shipping.

"Since Nomono's inception, we’ve been determined to create new opportunities for podcasters and journalists, all while empowering them to use their time most efficiently," said Inge Hovd Gangås, Nomono Chairman and CEO. "Beginning today, with the availability of the Nomono Sound Capsule, creators can spend more time focusing on the content itself, rather than cumbersome recording & production tasks. We're transforming how audio is captured and produced, and in turn, improving how listeners experience content. It’s a win-win for creators and consumers."

The Nomono platform includes the Nomono Sound Capsule, a Wi-Fi enabled portable recorder that combines four ultra-compact wireless lavalier mics with a 360-degree spatial audio microphone array and weighs less than 4 pounds. The Nomono Sound Capsule connects seamlessly to the Nomono Cloud, an online audio collaboration tool where content creators backup their recordings, collaborate with their production team, and apply AI-powered dialogue enhancement processing to ensure their audio sounds the best it can before starting the editorial process.

The Nomono platform was recently named the 2023 SXSW Innovation Award winner in the “Audio” category, recognizing the company’s success in paving the way for a spatial audio future for podcasters.

The Nomono Sound Capsule
Unlike current podcasting workflows that depend on separate field recorders, microphones, mixers, and accessories, the Nomono Sound Capsule is a compact, one-button field recording solution that captures up to four guests and immersive scene tape without wires or a complicated setup.

It includes Nomono’s groundbreaking wireless microphones, which capture and buffer high resolution, uncompressed audio files and transmit them back to the recorder asynchronously, providing wireless flexibility without the typical concerns of dropouts or interference.

The recorder includes an ambisonic microphone array to capture a high-resolution 3D recording of the environment and ambience along with the voices of each participant. The combination makes it easy to record object-based spatial audio that is compatible with formats from binaural all the way to Dolby Atmos and bring listeners right inside the conversation.

The Nomono Sound Capsule weighs less than 4 pounds and fits in a backpack. It comes with a rugged carrying case with a built-in rapid charger. There are no levels to set and no SD cards to format. Creators just push one button and start the conversation.

The Nomono Companion App, compatible with Android and iOS devices, is used to set up the Nomono Sound Capsule, connect it to Wi-Fi and manage upload settings.

Nomono Cloud Collaboration
Audio captured by the Nomono Sound Capsule is uploaded wirelessly to the Nomono Cloud, a secure cloud resource and audio collaboration tool featuring AI-powered signal processing. Through the Nomono Cloud, content creators can gather and organize material in a central repository; collect comments, feedback and approvals in relation to an audio timeline; and save time and money in post-production through one-button dialogue enhancement and noise reduction technology.

The same Nomono Intelligent Signal Processing technology that enables spatial audio recordings can also help separate the foreground dialogue from the background environment to provide exceptional intelligibility and noise reduction without distracting artifacts or having to remove the background sound entirely.

Field recordings from the Nomono Sound Capsule are automatically backed up to the cloud, and content teams can immediately start logging and collaborating on recorded material to speed up the editorial process and get the content “on air” as fast as possible.

“With millions of podcasts available today to consumers, creators need to prioritize not just quality conversations – but also quality audio – to build an engaged listener base,” Hovd Gangås concluded. “The Nomono Sound Capsule is well-equipped to usher in the next era of podcast creation – an era where creators can record best-in-class audio from anywhere, without having to worry about technology getting in the way.”
