NAMM 2016: IK Multimedia's iKlip A/V - Top Sound Quality on Your Smartphone
These days, films can be recorded entirely on smartphones, and some YouTubers are more famous than television presenters. The gap between professionals and amateurs is becoming smaller. Cameras on today's smartphones offer excellent image quality that is getting harder and harder to distinguish from 'the real thing'. Sound quality on smartphones, on the other hand, is an area that is still in need of some improvement. That's where the iKlip A/V from IK Multimedia comes in. It's a broadcast mount with an integrated microphone preamp that will add professional-quality sound to your smartphone footage.
Plug in and go
Filmmakers, vloggers and webcasters looking for top-quality sound to go with their mobile media productions will love the iKlip A/V. Bad, tinny sound quality can be a thing of the past, with the minimum of effort. Simply clip your phone in, connect a microphone or wireless receiver and record! The iKlip A/V even has phantom power on board should your microphone require it! The input can also be regulated using the adjustable input gain, while you can monitor the sound directly through the headphone output.
Pro 'on the go'
The iKlip A/V is a handy, portable solution that you can use easily on location. With today's connection possibilities you could even broadcast live to your audience! Simply connecting a good microphone will give you professional-quality sound for your vlog, report, concert or any other footage you shoot. The iKlip A/V works on two AA batteries that, even with the use of phantom power, will give you around 20 hours of use. Without phantom power it will run for a lot longer.
Just because you're not a 'real' filmmaker or television producer doesn't mean that you shouldn't have the professional-quality audio that the iKlip A/V can provide. Keep an eye on the product pages for up-to-date information on availability and pricing.
