8ball at NAB

Interview with Lead Architect Saul Laufer at NAB

This year at NAB, Immersive Shooter's Sarah Redohl pulled Saul onto the set to show off a 3D printed working prototype of the 8ball omni-binaural microphone. He did a great job giving a 2 minute overview. 

 
 

The 8ball is a patent pending omni-binaural microphone and companion software that provides a seamless workflow from on set recording to mind blowing immersive VR experience. With the 8ball we set out to solve many of the challenges that cinematic VR filmmakers have with delivering truly immersive spatial audio experiences, and we know you're going to love it.

  8ball       

During our beta program we battle tested the 8ball microphone. The design is informed from spending 1000 hours on set. The hollow design of the 8ball allows for center mounting on the camera stand, tucking the 8ball into an easily stitched out  position. Camera cables run freely through the body of the microphone, and a magnetic latch pops open for quick and easy camera moves on set.
