While 360-video is exploding in popularity, the ability to easily create 360-audio has lagged behind…until now with the ZOOM H3-VR VR audio capture device. From game developer, to filmmaker, to musician, virtual reality is the undeniable future of content creation and the H3-VR is undeniably the complete solution for capturing and processing spatial audio for VR, AR and mixed-reality content. With a built-in Ambisonic mic, recorder and decoder, it puts 360-audio in the palm of your hand.

Previously, VR audio capture required a dedicated Ambisonic mic, and then a separate recorder, plus a computer for encoding the audio from raw Ambisonics A format to VR-ready Ambisonics B format. Now, with this remarkably useful device, all of the encoding and decoding is done onboard, saving time, money and effort at every step.

Its 4-capsule Ambisonic mic captures accurate 360-degree VR audio recordings at rates of up to 24-bit/96 kHz. And the onboard decoder enables you to export Ambisonics B-format files directly – without ever connecting to a computer.

Additionally, it records stereo binaural WAV files up to 24-bit/48 kHz, offering a hyper-realistic spatial recording that can enhance 2D productions with 3D audio. And, it even provides standard stereo recording for recordings that will be played out of speakers rather than headphones.

If all that weren't enough, it lets you live stream events in 360 degrees, so that wherever your fans are, they’ll have access to the best seats in the house. Its compact, conical design captures audio from multiple angles without getting in the way of the camera or the action.
