IK Multimedia Introduces iKlip Grip, Video Stand with BT Shutter Control

IK Multimedia, the leader in mobile music creation products, is pleased to announce iKlip® Grip, the new multifunctional video stand with Bluetooth shutter for smartphones, compact video cameras, audio field recorders, and more. iKlip Grip is 4 accessories in one. It can be used as a desktop tripod, grip handle, monopod, or tripod adapter. In all configurations it can securely hold any smartphone with a screen size from 3.5″ to 6″ —even when the device is in a protective carrying case. iKlip Grip also features a standard mounting system for connecting small mobile video cameras like GoPro®, compact digital cameras, and stand-mount audio field recorders. So now when musicians, audiophiles, and video fans want to capture that magic performance for social media posting, band documentaries, YouTube uploads and sharing, iKlip Grip is the perfect tool. Hold everything!

The secret to iKlip Grip lies in its ingeniously secure and expandable holding bracket system. It lets users precisely position any smartphone at any angle to capture photos, videos, and audio. iKlip Grip features an expandable spring-loaded soft-touch rubber bracket that provides superior secure holding power. Repositioning the held smartphone is as simple as expanding the brackets to release the phone, then re-securing it. The iKlip Grip holding bracket features a standard ¼” threaded tripod screw mount so that it can be used with any standard tripod as a mobile device adapter.

 

Plus, when a smartphone is used for audio and video capture, the connection ports are accessible for use with IK’s iRig Mic Field, iRig Mic HD, iRig Mic Cast, and iRig Mic, making it perfect for high-quality on-the-go audio broadcast interviews, backstage interviews, concert footage and more.

 

Handheld or tripod

The base handle of iKlip Grip provides two intuitive functions. With its smartly designed ergonomic hand grip, iKlip Grip fits comfortably into almost any hand to provide a secure and rock-steady way to shoot video on the move on any smartphone, compact video camera, or field recorder. The base handle is also split into three equal sections that can open out to form a secure tripod stand for stationary media capture. This option gives users the ability to choose the best way to get a great shot–handheld, monopod, or tripod.

 

iKlip Grip also features a pivoting ball-joint attachment system that provides a full 90° range of angle adjustment plus 360° of rotation. This allows users to get the best angle and position for every shot.

 

Extend the reach

iKlip Grip comes with a 17.5” / 45 cm detachable telescopic extension arm. This gives users an easy way to position their device from 10” to 22” (25 to 55 cm) away—high above the crowd for optimal video and audio recording. This extension arm provides tons of inspiring possibilities by offering multiple height and viewing points that give all sorts of different perspectives for photo, video, and audio recording.

 

Remote BlueTooth shutter control

iKlip Grip comes with a Bluetooth control that lets users remotely activate the shutter in video and photo apps. The remote is universally compatible with iOS and Android, and it can be operated up to 10 meters away from the device. It’s perfect for capturing live performances, family vacation photos, movies, and selfies.
