IK Multimedia Debuts iKlip A/V — Broadcast Mount for Smartphones

IK Multimedia has introduced iKlip A/V, a broadcast mount for professional audio and video recording with smartphones. The mount supports broadcast-quality video productions with an integrated XLR mic preamp, wireless receiver support, steady hand grip and secure phone holder.

Developed in Italy with input from professional field reporters and broadcasters as a cost effective alternative for field reporting, IK Multimedia’s iKlip A/V was designed to help videographers capture professional quality audio for their mobile video productions.

The system features an integrated microphone preamp with phantom power that lets users record with high-quality external microphones via its XLR input. iKlip A/V provides 48 volt phantom power for high-end condenser mics via two AA batteries.

The device also features built-in support that can hold most popular wireless microphone receivers. Its gain control, headphone monitoring output and ⅛-inch TRRS audio output (CTIA/AHJ wiring standard) ensure a usable signal no matter what microphone is used. 

iKlip A/V's design enables steady shooting with a large ergonomic handheld grip and an expandable smartphone holding bracket that shares the same technology as IK's iKlip Xpand Mini. It can securely hold any smartphone with a screen size from 3.5-inches to 6-inches.

iKlip A/V can also be attached to a monopod or tripod via standard female threads on the underside. Its holder can be detached and replaced with a compact video camera thanks to its standard camera mount. It is compatible with all popular mobile video recording apps. 

iKlip A/V will be available in April for under $200.00.
