The 1,000th FlashMic in Germany was sold to Radio BasiX, a web radio project for young people in the Kraichgau region of southwestern Germany. “‘Start early’ is our motto,” says Radio BasiX project manager Maurice Gundt. “It’s so easy for our young reporters to get great results with the FlashMic, now that they are equipped for every interview.”
Noted Ian Jones, HHB managing director, “The FlashMic has become the industry-standard interview recorder for major broadcast and press journalists around the world, most of whom cite recording quality, ease-of-use and ease of file transfer as the key FlashMic benefits. We’re delighted to congratulate Uwe Seyfert and the Innoton team on their great success with the FlashMic in Germany and Austria.”
Elsewhere in the world, the FlashMic has played its part in helping Comic Relief raise £59 million to help the world’s disadvantaged. Reports Lucy McGill, Comic Relief media officer, “Whether collecting sound bites in London, in any of the regions across the UK or at our international projects in Africa, the FlashMic has been invaluable.”
With more than 10,000 units in use around the world, the HHB FlashMic digital recording microphone is already in use with broadcasters including ABC Radio, Aljazeera, the BBC, Bloomberg, BSkyB, CNN, NHK, NBC, and RAI.
