Yellowtec iXm Recording Microphone
The best way to capture a perfect interview
The Yellowtec iXm Recording Microphone serves as a universal recording device suitable for various field applications. Its clean dashboard with only a handful of buttons and LED signals guarantees intuitive to use without any handling noise. The iXm’s integrated LEA DSP Engine equips you with best in class level automation. Use the iXm Up-link App for Android and iOS with your mobile device to select, adjust and forward recordings straight from the iXm’s SD card.
iXM was designed to become the finest reporter microphone ever. One of the most challenging requirements was perfect auto levelling. Our engineers managed to develop an excitingly innovative procedure: the LEA engine. Whether whisper or cry, you will always enjoy a perfect level. LEA lets you do amazing recordings even under stressful conditions. No AGC and no artefacts. Try it out, you will be amazed.
An incredible amount of design attention was put into iXm’s every detail. The buttons are rugged, large, and dust/waterproof; smooth to the touch yet reliable in repetitive field operations. Most importantly, they produce no handling noise. With total control under your thumb, you can focus on what you do best.
One of the first things you’ll notice about iXm is that it’s extremely easy to use. A major design goal of ours was accomplished with the LEA, which allowed us to conceive a dashboard consisting of only three light-up icons: Recording Status, Battery Status and Memory Status. Moreover, the dashboard is exactly where you’d expect it, well-positioned and always visible. There’s no better way, day or night, to keep your recordings under control. Free from monitoring, you can devote full concentration to your interview and enjoy a hassle-free, more personal recording.
Our Twist-Off-Twist-On (TOTO) exchangeable mic heads help you create your ideal recording environment. Whether you require a cardioid, super-cardioid or omnidirectional pickup pattern, you can easily shift gears on the spot. TOTO’s auto-sensing detects which type of mic head you’re using and automatically adapts the DSP to the right parameters, with no need for any manual settings.
iXm App: The iXm Uplink app facilitates the exchange of data between the iXm microphone and iOS devices, providing sophisticated editing, archiving and meta tags features. This enables e.g. reporters to email recordings directly to the studio after tagging the files. iXm Uplink not only makes recording much easier, it creates a completely new way of doing interviews because with both iXm and iXm Up-link there finally is an integrative toolset tailored to your individual requirements! Whether you want to playback, save, edit, and transfer your audio clips on your iPhone or iPad: iXm Uplink makes it a piece of cake. Send your recordings to your Studio instantly and enjoy helpful features like meta tags.
Use the Toshiba Flash Air wireless SD Card (YT5160 recommended) of your bundle to connect the iXm Recording Microphone with your mobile device via WiFi. Now you can download sound files from your iXm and edit and transfer them via GSM or another WiFi link.
You can also distribute *.WAV, *.BWF and MP2 (MPEG1 Layer2) files via e-mail, Dropbox and FTP.
