Zoom H3-VR Virtual Reality Audio Recorder

ONE-STOP VR AUDIO
The Zoom H3-VR virtual reality audio recorder is 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, the H3-VR puts 360-audio in the palm of your hand.

A 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. Now, with the H3-VR, all of the encoding and decoding is done on board, saving time, money and effort at every step.

FITS ANYWHERE. CAPTURES EVERYTHING.
The H3-VR’s compact, conical design captures audio from multiple angles without getting in the way of the camera or the action.
