Surround recording is coming on strong, especially as the deadline for full HDTV implementation for US broadcasters approaches in January of 2009. The increased bandwidth and stellar picture associated with HDTV calls for more realistic audio coverage of sporting events, concerts, Live news feeds and sound for picture. The Conservatory teaches each student a number of different surround disciplines from a basic ITU array of mics to the Grado Vectored Array. 8th Cycle students recently used the revolutionary Holophone 6-channel mic during their surround recording clinic. The 3 lb. mic is only 6 x 8 inches and offers an easy way to capture the ambience of the surrounding space.
