SoundField DSF-2 Microphone System

The DSF-2 microphone system provides simultaneous digital surround and stereo soundscapes at large scale live outside broadcast events such as sports stadiums and concert hall venues. The DSF-2 consists of a DSF-2 microphone and DSF-2 microphone controller.

Uniquely, the multi-channel audio that the DSF-2 microphone system generates from a ‘single point’ source is completely phase coherent. This enables the broadcaster to collapse the surround to stereo or mono for TV and radio feeds without loss of information, frequency imbalance or any of the other phase problems associated with spaced microphones or multi capsule ‘dummy head’ arrangements.

The DSF-2 controller outputs stereo, M/S, and four-channel B-Format which can be decoded into any current surround format using the hardware DSF-3 or Surround Zone software plug-in. All microphone parameters can be adjusted from the DSF-2 controller without the need to physically move the mic itself, including orientation, angle, pickup pattern and a unique Mic Rotate control.
