It’s a bit of a strange looking thing for sure, but with more and more people using smartphones for content creation on the move, the new iKlip A/V mount by IK Multimedia could prove a useful asset.
The mount is designed to enable videographers, broadcasters and journalists to make high quality video productions with professional audio on their smartphones, courtesy of a built-in XLR mic preamp, wireless receiver support, steady hand grip and secure holder.
The unit features an integrated microphone preamp with phantom power that lets users record with high-quality external microphones via its XLR input, with the device providing 48V phantom power for high-end condenser mics via two AA batteries.
A built in gain control, headphone monitoring output and 1/8″ TRRS audio output lets users tweak the sound as required and the ergonomic can also hold most popular wireless microphone receivers. There’s also a standard tripod screw.
Smartphones with a screen size from 3.5″ to 6″ can be accommodated, and the iKlip A/V works with any smartphone or camera that accepts a 1/8″ TRRS (CTIA/AHJ wiring standard) audio input.
The iKlip A/V will be available in April 2016 from music and electronics retailers worldwide, and from the IK online store, for only $/€179.99 (excluding taxes).
