Zoom H3-VR 360-Degree VR Audio Handy Recorder

The Zoom H3-VR All-In-One Ambisonic Microphone and Recorder: VR audio, you've arrived. Whether you’re a game developer, filmmaker or musician, virtual reality is the undeniable future of content creation. While 360-video is exploding in popularity, the ability to easily create 360-audio has lagged behind...until now. Recorders capture audio; H3-VR captures reality.

One-Stop VR Audio

The Zoom H3-VR VR audio recorder is the complete solution for capturing and processing spatial audio for virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed-reality content. With a built-in Ambisonic mic, recorder and decoder, the H3-VR puts 360-audio in the palm of your hand.

New Way to Go from A to B

In the past, capturing VR audio required a dedicated Ambisonic mic, a separate recorder and a computer for encoding the audio from raw Ambisonics A format to VR-ready Ambisonics B format. With the H3-VR, all of the encoding and decoding is done on board, saving time, money and effort.

Audio for Every Reality

The 4-capsule Ambisonic mic captures precise 360-degree VR audio recordings up to 24 bit/96 kHz. And the onboard decoder allows you to wirelessly export Ambisonics B-format files directly. The H3-VR also records stereo binaural WAV files up to 24 bit/48 kHz. Stereo binaural provides a hyper-realistic spatial recording that enhances 2D productions with 3D audio. It even offers standard stereo recording for recordings that will be played out of speakers rather than headphones. The free to download, Zoom Ambisonics Player software can easily convert Ambisonics audio to a 5.1ch surround file that is pre-aligned to the proper speakers and is exported to your video or audio editor for syncing with standard video. Additionally, this recorder also enables you to live stream events in 360 degrees so that wherever your fans are, they’ll have access to the best seats in the house.

Fits Anywhere, Captures Everything

The compact, conical design captures audio from multiple angles without getting in the way of the camera or the action.

6-Axis Motion Sensor

Auto Mic Position and Level Detection make placing simple. Whether positioned upright, upside down, endfire or endfire inverted, the H3-VR automatically calibrates so your audio and video are already aligned for post.

Upgrade Your Game Experience

With the ability to capture high-quality in-game audio, you can elevate your player’s experience to new levels.

Monitoring and Playback

Monitor your audio live in stereo binaural or use onboard Ambisonics Decoding to simulate your recorded 360-experience during playback.

Streaming and More

Perfect for live streaming, video conferencing, direct recording and more, the H3-VR’s audio interface mode turns it into a USB 360 mic for your computer or stereo mic for your iOS device.

Out of the Shot but in Control

The H3 Control App lets you remotely access transport controls, level settings and metadata notes right from your iOS device using an optional BTA-1 adapter.

Zoom Ambisonics Player

The companion Zoom Ambisonics Player software converts Ambisonics files to Stereo, Binaural, 5.1ch surround and more. Play, trim, reorient and export your audio files in minutes.
