For Immediate Release

HOLOPHONE'S® H2-PRO NOMINATED FOR TEC AWARD
Innovative Product Offers Ground-breaking Surround Technology

TORONTO, ONTARIO, JUNE 28, 2006 — Holophone ® is pleased to announce that its flagship product, the ground-breaking H2-PRO surround microphone, has been nominated for the MIX Foundation's Technical Excellence & Creativity Award (TEC) in the Mic Technology/Studio category.

Nominees were selected by a panel of audio industry leaders. Products that are selected must represent a superior accomplishment in their fields. The final selection is made by votes from the 41,000 subscribers to MIX magazine. Ballots will appear in the August issue of the publication. The technology pioneered by the H2-PRO was recently recognized by MIX when Holophone's H4 SuperMINI, the world's first camera-mountable surround microphone received the publication's Certified Hit Award for NAB 2006.

"It is a great honor for the H2-PRO to be nominated for one of the top awards in the industry,"says Michael Godfrey, president and founder of Holophone. "We created the H2-PRO to give audio technicians an easier way to capture up to 7.1 channels of surround sound audio instantly and in any situation. Thus far, the feedback we have received from industry insiders has been extremely positive."

Used by Grammy-winning producer Hank Neuberger and other leaders in the industry on projects such as the 47th and 48th Grammy Awards, Superbowl XXXIX, and most recently the World Cup, the innovative H2-PRO is ideal for any live recording situation - both in the studio and in the field. It utilizes the theories of head related transfer function (HRTF) to capture 7.1 channels of discrete surround-sound audio in a single, cost-effective unit. Features of the H2-PRO include eight XLR microphone connectors, which are entirely compatible with all multichannel I/O devices. The unit is also compatible with all surround-sound encoding/playback formats (Dolby, DTS, Circle Surround, IMAX, etc.).

For more than 20 years, the TEC Awards have been the foremost program recognizing the achievements of audio professionals. Presented each year by the MIX Foundation for Excellence in Audio, the TEC Awards honor the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind the sound of recordings, films, TV shows and live performances. It also contributes thousands of dollars each year on behalf of hearing conservation as well as funding scholarships for future audio professionals.
