Holophone forms partnership with Q5X

Canadian audio technology companies Holophone and Quantum5X Systems have joined forces to develop "a new standard in handheld wireless microphone systems."

NAMM 2013 will mark the debut of the first of three upcoming single-channel wireless systems, featuring Holophone’s customisable handheld Super C supercardioid condenser microphone.

Holophone’s new single-channel mics feature the same proprietary capsule design employed in the company’s surround sound microphones, including the H2-PRO, which is used for concert sound, broadcast, film, and music recording applications.

Quantum5X Systems (Q5X) is a manufacturer of professional broadcast-quality wireless systems designed for demanding sports and live event productions. The new wireless systems will integrate Holophone’s line of customisable handheld microphones with Q5X’s radio frequency technologies.

"We are pleased and delighted to announce this partnership," said Q5X president Allen Kool. "Holophone is world renowned for their groundbreaking surround sound audio systems, and this alliance builds on the strengths of both companies’ technologies. Together we will be significantly raising the bar for sonic quality and performance for wireless microphone systems."

"Q5X is the only wireless technology manufacturer that can meet Holophone’s exacting standards for sound quality, and we’re excited by the potential of this alliance," added Holophone president and founder Michael Godfrey. "This is a great opportunity for both our companies, but more importantly, it’s an exciting time for audio professionals. This is the new standard in custom wireless systems."

Holophone and Q5X will showcase the first of several handheld single-channel systems on Booth 5399 in Hall B at the Californian trade show.
