IK Multimedia announces iKlip A/V
IK Multimedia presents the iKlip A/V, a broadcast mount for audio and video recording with smartphones.
Announced as "an industry first", the iKlip A/V is a system aimed at giving professional broadcasters and videographers the ability to capture and monitor pro-quality audio on the go via its integrated high-quality XLR mic preamp with phantom power and built-in wireless receiver support. It also features a built-in support that can hold most popular wireless microphone receivers, and its gain control, headphone monitoring output and 1/8" TRRS audio output (CTIA/AHJ wiring standard) are meant to ensure signal quality with any microphone or device.
It also aims at delivering a steady picture thanks to its smartphone holder (designed for any iPhone, iPod touch or Android device with a screen size from 3.5" to 6") and ergonomic hand-held grip. The smartphone holder is also detachable and can be replaced by a compact video camera thanks to its standard camera mount.
Designed for mobile broadcast professionals, the iKlip aims at giving the opportunity to transform any quality smartphone into a full-featured camcorder and can also be fixed on a monopod/tripod. It is of course compatible with all popular mobile video recording apps, including favourites like Apple's Camera app as well as third party apps that provide more control, like Filmic Pro.
The iKlip A/V will be available in April 2016 from music and electronics retailers worldwide, and from the IK online store for a price of $179.99/€$179.99 (+taxes if applicable).

In the early days, the emphasis was on reproducing audio snapshots and then on entire instruments. A few years later, sampling short segments off records was all the rage, and it wasn’t long before entire musical vocabularies became available on CDs and eventually DVDs. Most recently, downloadable sample libraries have become a cost-effective means of getting the world’s finest sound designers to contribute their talents to your creative projects.
