Zoom H2n Now Supports Google Jump With Firmware Update

The Zoom H2n handy recorder now offers a seamless audio solution for Google Jump.

The new 2.00 firmware update from Zoom means that the H2n handy recorder is now the ideal piece of equipment for recording and outputting spatial audio files for virtual reality applications.

It is currently the only handheld recorder that captures four-channel surround sound audio. This feature means that people recording and outputting audio in this way will get an extra sense of depth, distance and intensity of the location.

When deployed as part of the specialised Jump camera rig, the Zoom H2n recorder sits in the center of the circular multi-camera array, making its compact size an essential feature. The Jump Assembler (using Google’s cloud) then uses advanced computing power to assemble 16 pieces of video into a stereoscopic virtual reality video ready for YouTube.
