With Red Nose Day just over a week away, HHB reports that the Comic Relief media team is using FlashMic Digital Recording Microphones to gather interviews from participating celebrities, members of the public, and from those whose lives are transformed by the work of Comic Relief.
“The FlashMic has been used by Comic Relief to help achieve wide spread coverage, which helps us to raise awareness of our campaigns and raise much needed funds in the process,” reports Comic Relief Media Officer Lucy McGill.
“Whether collecting soundbites in London, in any of the regions across the UK or at our international projects in Africa, the FlashMic has been invaluable.”
With a choice of four models available, the FlashMic combines a studio-quality microphone capsule with a broadcast quality Flash recorder to provide radio and print journalists with a compact, convenient recording device that¹s extremely easy to use.
With no fiddly cables to worry about, the FlashMic is also highly durable ¬ a feature that Comic Relief has found to be particularly beneficial while working in the more remote regions in Africa ¬ while high-speed USB file transfer makes it easy to transfer recordings for editing in the field.
Comic Relief joins a prestigious list of broadcasters and media organisations around the world already using the FlashMic, including ABC Radio, Aljazeera, the BBC, Bloomberg, BSkyB, CNN, NHK, NBC and RAI.
Commenting on the news from Comic Relief, HHB Managing Director Ian Jones says “The FlashMic is all about making it easy to record and deliver great results, and that makes it useful for gathering interviews in all sorts of situations. We¹re delighted that the FlashMic is contributing to the great work of Comic Relief.”
