Description

The “ORTF Surround” recording method is a new system for the pickup of surround ambience. This microphone arrangement and its sonic characteristics are quite similar to those of the well-known “IRT Cross“ designed by Günther Theile. Both the 360° imaging and the spatial impression are of optimal quality. This is achieved with a high degree of signal separation among channels, based both on arrival-time differences and level differences.

The ORTF Surround Outdoor Set has been successfully used for major sporting events for many years.

Practice

The ORTF Surround arrangement has been designed to be mounted conveniently in a single elastic suspension and to share a single windscreen.

It differs from the IRT Cross arrangement in being rectangular rather than square. Its pickup regions are correctly apportioned through careful choice of the angles and distances among the microphones. The WSC ORTF Surround is part of the ORTF Surround Set. This is a “plug and play” solution for surround ambience. It comprises:

  • 4 * No. 121017: CCM 41 L compact microphones
  • No. 175207: WSC ORTF Surround H,...
