Sennheiser teki virtuaalisen todellisuuden nauhoitukset 50 Montreux Jazz festivalin nauhoitukset

Montreux Jazz Festival juhlisti 50-vuotispäiväänsä tänä vuonna. Festivaalin upeat nauhoituskokoelmat, alkaen niiden alusta, ne kirjoitettiin UNESCON maailman perintörekisteriin vuonna 2013. Ottaen huomioon festivaalin perustajan, edesmenneen Claude Nobsin, joka nautti aina viimeisimmästä nauhoitusteknologiasta, moni konserteista nauhoitettiin moniraitaäänityksellä tai HD ja 4K-videoilla. Meitä ei kutsuttu nauhoittamaan konsertteja 3D-videolla ja -äänellä ainoastaan historian vuoksi 50 vuotisjuhlissa - muiden AV-toimintojen lisäksi joita he yleensä tekevät.

Sennheiser täydensi Nokian Ozo-järjestelmää AMBEO VR mikrofonilla jota käytettiin videonauhoituksiin. Tämä oli erittäin hyvä päätös: Mikrofonit jotka on integroitu Nokian Ozo kameraan, eivät sovellu konserttien nauhoituksiin, koska, monien muiden asioiden lomasssa, muuttuva äänentaso signaalissa tipahtaa välittömästi.

Jälkikäsittelyssä, me asetimme yksittäiset instrumenttimikrofonit avaruudellisesti 360 ° kameran perspektiiviin, käyttäen avaruudellista akustiikkaa ja 3D-audio-ohjelmistoa. Tämä johti huippuluokan äänen paikannukseen ja hämmästyttävään realismiin, jota ei voida saacvuttaa klassisilla Ambisoniceilla.

„Lisäten VR-mikrofoninauhoitukset, me pystyimme parantamaan 3D-kokemusta huomattavasti.“
Fabian Knauber

Me nauhoitimme äänet kameran edessä, molemmat tärkeistä lähteistä, joita ei oltu varustettu omilla mikrofoneilla ja kameran ympäristöstä. Tämä varmisti sen että ääni ja kuva toimivat yhdessä täydellisesti.

Jälkikäsittelyssä, me korostimme äänen paikallistamisen tarkkuutta ensimmäisen tilauksen Ambisoniceilla joissa oli parametrinen dekooderi (Harpex). Tämä asetti ääniobjektit virtuaalisesti paikalleen oikeisiin paikkoihin, tehden niistä avaruudellisen äänimaailman.

Olimme myös hyvin intoutuneita AMBEO VR-mikrofonin pienestä koosta, joka salli meidän sisällyttää sen kameran runkoon. Rakenne – koostuen mikrofonitelineestä, kamerasta ja mikrofonista – oli niin huomaamaton että pystyimme nauhoittamaan konsertteja näkyvistä paikoista, kuten lavan keskeltä.
