Zoom Corporation has announced a new collaboration with Sennheiser.

The two companies will release a complete VR production experience within the framework of Sennheiser’s AMBEO for VR partnership program, combining Zoom’s F8 and F4 MultiTrack Field Recorders and Sennheiser’s AMBEO VR Mic.

“We are delighted that Zoom has joined the AMBEO for VR partnership program,” said Véronique Larcher, co-director for AMBEO at Sennheiser. “By embedding the AMBEO VR Mic’s A-B converter in the Zoom F8, VR content creators are able to rely on a convenient and easy-to-use combo for VR productions.”

Zoom is also developing new AMBEO-ready firmware with A-B decoding for properly monitoring signal from the AMBEO mic.

“At Zoom we always take into high consideration new technology for audio recording,” said Masa Iijima, Zoom Corporation CEO. “VR audio has just started, and we are happy to partner with Sennheiser AMBEO to provide such an innovative VR recording solution to professionals and creators with our F8 and F4 field recorders.”

The firmware updates will be available in late September for F8 and in December 2017 for F4.
