Broadcast equipment manufacturer, TSL Products, has collaborated with windshield specialist Cinela to create the PIANI-SPS200, described by the company as the “ultimate Virtual Reality recording package”.

The two companies previously worked together to house a custom short body version of TSL Products’ SoundField SPS200 ambisonics microphone within Cinela’s ZEPHYX windshield to create a portable, robust and reliable recording system.

The latest project enables surround sound and VR content creators to capture high quality, immersive sound with minimum handling and wind noise to complement their images.

The PIANI-SPS200 is comprised of TSL Products’ SoundField Standard SPS200 mic slotted into the Cinela Pianissimo windshield, which contains flexible inner extensions using SoundField’s original connectors, maximising the isolation of vibration and noise handling. Users can purchase each element separately and need only connect them via the regular extension provided with the microphone, near the swivel.

Philippe Chenevez from Cinela says, “As Virtual Reality continues to grow in popularity, users will expect the highest quality to keep them believing in their virtual environment. We believe that the combination of the SoundField SPS200 and the Pianissimo windshield is an ideal solution to create the immersive sound needed for VR.”
