Shure has launched its new MV88+ Video Kit, which includes a portable microphone and accessory kit that helps content creators capture high-quality audio for video recording using a range of mobile and digital devices while on-the-go.
As an expansion of Shure's Motiv line-up, the MV88+ kit also includes a Manfrotto PIXI tripod, phone clamp, and mount, along with iOS and USB-C cables.
Built on the success and classic design of the MV88 iOS Digital Stereo Condenser Microphone, this latest addition to the line of digital microphones and portable recording solutions delivers Shure signature audio quality. It's designed for podcasters, videographers, content creators, field recordists, and musicians looking to record immersive, rich, high-quality audio.
"The MV88+ Video Kit provides multiple configurations straight out of the box," says Matt Engstrom, Senior Category Director, Global Product Management at Shure. "You shouldn't have to buy half a dozen products to film a high-quality piece of video content one day, and then an audio interview or field recording the next. With the MV88+, you don't have to. We listened to you and worked to develop a superior microphone with superior accessories. This package gives you everything you'll need to film in your studio, on-the-go, at home, or wherever life takes you."
To ensure real-time audio assessment, it includes a headphone jack, while the convenient phone clamp and tripod stand allows you to record in various environments. The MV88+ can also be used for standalone audio capture, replacing the need for field recordists to carry a portable audio recorder.
"The MV88+ takes into account the little things, too," adds Engstrom. "We understand the value of efficiency and improved the design to seamlessly record with or without a protective smartphone case. The included phone mount is also compatible with your existing setup, allowing you to connect to any tripod with a ¼" connector. This empowers you to use the setup that best suits your needs. You'll also be able to tap into the capabilities of the free Shure MOTIV Video and Audio Recording applications to access our state-of-the-art audio quality in tandem with the microphone."
The MV88+ Video Kit retails for a MAP of $329, and is available for pre-order. Shure products are available in Canada through Montreal-based SFM.
