Shure engineers are never ones to rest on their laurels. And now, after listening to users and taking on their feedback, behold the MV88+ Video Kit!
The Shure MOTIV MV88+ Video Kit is a premium Digital Stereo Condenser Microphone. Your new mobile recording rig directly connects to any Apple device via a Lightning connector or via USB-C to select additional devices. The MV88+ has all you need to capture great content right out of the box. The included phone mount is also compatible with your existing set-up, allowing to connect to any tripod with a 1/4"- 20 (or 1/4 camera tripod) connector.
Coming with a compact Manfrotto PIXI tripod and a mount for both a smartphone and the microphone, the kit is all you need for recording both handheld and static video shots with professional audio. It's bound to be popular with vloggers, musicians, reporters and documentary filmmakers, just to name of few content creators that cannot afford to skimp on sound.
There are plenty of users wanting to monitor their recording in real-time and the MV88+, with its own dedicated headphone output, allows them to do just that. In addition, the MV88+ is compatible with the Periscope app or Facebook Live and has been designed with that added functionality in mind, so it will be the obvious choice if you are someone who produces live streaming content!
We purposely designed the MV88+ to have the mounting flexibility to fit any rig. You can choose from five (and counting!) different setups and let's not forget you can also mount your MV88+ into one of your own tripods or stands, as long as it has a standard quarter-inch connector.
Another great feature of the new MV88+ is that iOS users can charge their phones while recording with a USB3 camera adapter. That way you'll never have to worry about battery life during a longer session. No more putting off filming your vlog when your iPhone runs out of juice!
The free ShurePlus MOTIV audio & video Apps enable recording control, and the ability to save and share your content in multiple formats. Apps include real-time audio control, including five built-in DSP preset modes (Speech, Singing, Flat, Acoustic Instrument, Loud), microphone gain, stereo width, and high-quality 24-bit /48 kHz recording. The MV88+ Video Kit is the perfect high-fidelity solution for mobile capture of all variations: live performance, field recording, interviewing, audio for video and vocal and instrument recording.
Additional cables or adapters may be required.
The MV88+ Video Kit is undoubtedly a powerful package for all sorts of content creators!
