The “Williams Star” Microphone Array Support System

With the ever increasing interest in 5-channel recording for home cinema, television, and pure 5-channel audio, the search for an operationally simple, reliable, and high quality surround sound recording system is becoming ever more important. The equal segment 4-channel and 5-channel arrays described in two AES papers by Michael Williams (AES preprints 3157 and 7480) are attracting more and more interest within the audio industry. However the research for a satisfactory operational microphone configuration cannot be dissociated from the purely mechanical problem of finding a suitable microphone array support system. The “Williams Star” Microphone Support System can provide a simple, flexible, and reliable microphone array support system for any equal segment array design. The visual impact of this system has also been reduced to an absolute minimum. Currently only the 4-channel and 5-channel seem to meet operational broadcasting requirements, but a 7-channel format is also provided for future developments with respect to the new Blu-ray format.
