IK Multimedia Launches iKlip A/V for iPhone Videography

IK Multimedia’s iKlip A/V gives professional audio to broadcast-quality videos for mobile phones and compact video cameras due to its integrated XLR mic preamp, wireless receiver support, steady hand grip and secure device and camera holder.

IK Multimedia said the iKlip A/V gives broadcasters, videographers and digital storytellers the ability to capture and monitor professional-quality audio for their videos on the go using its integrated high-quality XLR mic preamp with phantom power and built-in wireless receiver support.

The company said it also helps deliver a steady picture due to its secure smartphone holder and ergonomic handgrip, as well as pro quality audio while shooting video on a smartphone.

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

It was also designed for mobile reporting through online media outlets or social channels like Facebook, Periscope or Snapchat, or smartphone filmmaking for YouTube, Vimeo or Instagram.

It features an integrated microphone preamp with gain control that lets users record with high-quality external microphones. The device delivers 48V phantom power for high-end condenser mics using two AA batteries and features a built-in support bracket that can hold most popular wireless microphone receivers.

Its input gain control, headphone monitoring output and ⅛-inch TRRS audio output ensure a signal no matter what microphone or device is used.

iKlip A/V features a large ergonomic handheld grip and an expandable smartphone holding bracket that shares the same technology as IK's iKlip Xpand Mini and the iKlip Grip for ultra-steady shooting. It can securely hold any iPhone, iPod touch or Android device with a screen size from 3.5 to six inches.

iKlip A/V can also be attached to a monopod or tripod thanks to the standard female threads on the underside. Its smartphone holder bracket can be detached and replaced with a compact video camera.

With an optional iLine Camera Adapter cable, iKlip A/V can be used with any camera that has an auxiliary microphone TRS input, meaning that it can deliver great broadcast-quality results with any compatible device that can either fit on its grip or fit on its standard camera mount.

The iKlip A/V is priced at $179.99.
