Italian broadcaster is virtually speaking

Italy's RAI, one of the few radio and TV broadcasters with its own in-house R&D centre, recently patented the 3D VMS, jointly developed with Advanced Industrial Design in Acoustic, a spin-off of Parma University.

Italy’s RAI, one of the few radio and TV broadcasters with its own in-house R&D centre (the Turin-based Centre for Research and Technical Innovation), recently patented the 3D VMS (Virtual Microphone System), jointly developed with Advanced Industrial Design in Acoustic, a spin-off of Parma University, writes Mike Clark.

Using an mh acoustics Eigenmike microphone array, the system’s DSP is able to create up to seven virtual microphones, whose directivity and position can be separately and dynamically varied in real time. This enables sound engineers to target a specific instrument or person, using a joystick to move a viewfinder on a TV camera’s coverage of the event, or to change the ‘synthesised’ microphones’ parameters during post-production after the event has been recorded.
