SoundField Poised To Launch Latest Surround Microphone Systems At IBC 2007

SoundField, manufacturer of surround and stereo microphones for the broadcast and recording industries, will be launching several new products at IBC 2007.
Joining the DSF-2 Digital Broadcast Microphone System introduced last year is the DSF-1 Digital Studio System and the DSF-3 Digital Broadcast Surround Processor. Like the DSF-2, which has become the surround microphone system of choice for a number of broadcast engineers following its use by Sky Digital on their HD surround broadcasts from large-scale sporting events, the DSF-1 can produce simultaneous, phase-coherent stereo and surround sound from a single microphone, and is suited to a wide range of recording applications including orchestral recordings and classical concerts. The DSF-3 is a real-time surround processor for live HD broadcast use and provides complete control over the surround image captured by a SoundField microphone from within an associated OB vehicle.
Also on show at SoundField's booth is the new SPS200 A-Format microphone, a portable, lightweight product first exhibited in prototype form last year and designed for laptop-based location recording. Like all other SoundField microphones, the SPS200 can output simultaneous audio in a variety of possible formats including stereo and surround, but this is the first SoundField microphone not to ship with an accompanying hardware control unit: instead, stereo and surround decoding and manipulation are achieved by the new "Conversion Lounge” software supplied with the mic, saving on weight and cost.
The supplied software runs on Macs and Windows PCs, and is compatible with Pro Tools and all DAWs which support the VST Multichannel standard, for example Nuendo, Cubase, and Soundscape.
SoundField will be on Stand 587 in Hall 5 throughout the IBC show.
