A top notch entertainment and multimedia experience is not just all about HD videos and 3D – there is also the matter of sound. For an immersive surround sound experience, you’ll need all the bells and whistles with the new Zoom H2n handy audio recorder. This new generation portable hand held recorder is loaded with the latest audio recording technology that captures and delivers perfect sound quality anytime and anywhere. It’s the perfect companion for the techie film makers, journalist, pod casters, musicians, and songwriters.
The H2n is the only portable recorder outfitted with five advanced microphone capsules on board. This unique feature allows the H2n to record in four different modes: Mid0Side stereo, 90-degree X/Y stereo, 2-channel, and 4-channel surround sound. Its Mid-Side stereo makes use of a uni-directional Mid microphone in front and bi-directional microphone in left and right. The width of the stereo field is adjusted by manipulating the level of the Side mic for greater flexibility during and after recording. The 90-degree X/Y stereo recording mode uses condenser mics that are on the same axis and designed to be always of equal distance to the sound source. Using the abovementioned recording modes together delivers a stunning 360-degree surround sound that can be set in either 2-channel or 4-channel mode.
Other noteworthy features of the Zoom H2n include an easy to use GUI, data recovery functions, exceptional 20-hour battery life, bright 1.8-inch backlit LCD display, built-in speaker, 1/8 in. stereo output, SDHC card slot, and high speed USB 2.0 interface. The device also comes with wired remote control with an extension cable, windscreen, AC adapter (USB type), USB cable, adjustable tripod stand, padded-shell case and mic clip adapter, and Steinberg’s WaveLab LE 7 software for professional audio editing and mastering.
