Fostex has announced that its new AR-4i Audio Interface for iPhone4
is now shipping. The AR-4i is designed to provide professional stereo audio
recording for videos taken using the iPhone4. Featuring two removable cardioid
plug-in microphones that swivel for placement and can be mounted vertically or
horizontally, the AR-4i serves as a cradle for the iPhone4 and is ergonomically
designed for comfort. Also included is mounting hardware for a tripod or other
professional camera mount devices.
Fostex told us "The AR-4i's high quality microphones and professional stereo AD converter
dramatically improves the audio recorded into iPhone4 videos thereby increasing
the professionalism of videos for streaming, live performance videos, home
videos, or even ENG applications."
An LED Level Meter is provided for input level monitoring, and a headphone jack
facilitates monitoring of the stereo input. Recording input levels and EQ can be
further adjusted using the dedicated iPhone App.
