Pro smartphone audio capture13 September 2016
One of several co-exhibitors hosting products on the HHB stand, Rode Microphones is showcasing its wide selection of broadcast microphones. The i-XLR is a broadcast-quality XLR to Lightning interface for iOS devices, allowing reporters, correspondents and audio professionals to capture professional interview dialogue to a smartphone or tablet.
A three-metre shielded cable allows the operator to store the phone in a pocket or bag, and a headphone output with adjustable level on the body is intended to make it easy to monitor audio during an interview. For dynamic microphones, the i-XLR features a +20dB level boost, giving these microphones a high level of clean gain, claimed the company.
