Solid State Logic joins Sennheiser’s ‘AMBEO for VR’ program

Posted on: Tuesday 9th of April 2019

Sennheiser and Solid State Logic (SSL) have announced their cooperation within the framework of the AMBEO for VR partnership program. Solid State Logic’s S500, S300 and TCR System T broadcast mixing consoles will now feature onboard AMBEO A-B conversion for the Sennheiser AMBEO VR Mic.

“We are extremely happy to welcome Solid State Logic to our partnership program,” said Véronique Larcher, AMBEO Immersive Audio co-director at Sennheiser. “Our AMBEO VR Mic and SSL’s System T consoles are trailblazers in immersive audio broadcasting. “With this partnership, we are making the workflows for the creation of immersive formats far easier.”

“The partnership with Sennheiser AMBEO expands our growing functionality to provide processing for multiple audio formats for immersive and three-dimensional audio; channel-based, objects, Ambisonics and binaural,” commented Tom Knowles, SSL Broadcast Product Manager. “System T now provides on-board A-B format conversion support for the AMBEO VR Mic, with a 360 transcoder to render to a wide range of multi-channel outputs from 4.0 to 7.1.4. This allows our clients to use the AMBEO VR Mic to add ambient sound to a live immersive production or provide decoding for a live VR mix.”

Direct conversion for easy workflows
The AMBEO A-B converter works hand in hand with SSL’s 360 transcoder. While the former provides the processing-ready B-format from the Ambisonics AMBEO VR Mic, the latter converts this signal to a broad range of output formats and loudspeaker arrangements, ranging from 4.0. to 5.1.4 and 7.1.4. Broadcast engineers will be able to record and process immersive content with far greater ease, and without the need for any additional physical equipment.
