Nomono, pioneers of audio recording and collaboration tools that help podcasters, content creators and journalists tell immersive audio stories, announced its groundbreaking Nomono Sound Capsule, a cloud-connected, self-contained recording kit for capturing audio in the field, is now shipping.
“Since Nomono’s inception, we’ve been determined to create new opportunities for podcasters and journalists, all while empowering them to use their time most efficiently,” said Inge Hovd Gangås, Nomono Chairman and CEO. “Beginning today, with the availability of the Nomono Sound Capsule, creators can spend more time focusing on the content itself, rather than cumbersome recording & production tasks. We’re transforming how audio is captured and produced, and in turn, improving how listeners experience content. It’s a win-win for creators and consumers.”
The Nomono platform includes the Nomono Sound Capsule, a Wi-Fi enabled portable recorder that combines four ultra-compact wireless lavalier mics with a 360-degree spatial audio microphone array and weighs less than 4 pounds. The Nomono Sound Capsule connects seamlessly to the Nomono Cloud, an online audio collaboration tool where content creators backup their recording, collaborate with their production team, and apply AI-powered dialogue enhancement processing to ensure their audio sounds the best it can before starting the editorial process.
The Nomono platform was recently named the 2023 SXSW Innovation Award winner in the “Audio” category, recognizing the company’s success in paving the way for a spacial audio future for podcasters.
The Nomono Sound Capsule
Unlike current podcasting workflows that depend on separate field recorders, microphones, mixers, and accessories, the Nomono Sound Capsule is a compact, one-button field recording solution that captures up to four guests and immersive scene tape without wires or a complicated setup.
It includes Nomono’s groundbreaking wireless microphones, which capture and buffer high resolution, uncompressed audio files and transmit them back to the record asynchronously, providing wireless flexibility without the typical concerns of dropouts or interference.
The recorder includes an ambisonic microphone array to capture a high-resolution 3D recording of the environment and ambience along with the voices of each participant. The combination makes it easy to record object-based spatial audio that is compatible with formats from the binaural all the way to Dolby Atmos and brings listeners right inside the conversation.
