Offering unprecedented audio quality for live and mobile journalists in the field, the d:vice digital audio interface works together with any iOS device, Mac or PC computer. Broadcasting or recording crystal-clear sound anywhere in the world is easier than ever.
Journalists around the world are already using their smartphones to capture the news. It works fairly well because today’s phones are capable of taking high-quality pictures and videos. The component that is missing is high-quality audio. For news broadcasts, it is equally important to have audio quality that matches or exceeds the video for the message to be understood. This is exactly the challenge that the d:vice™ solves. When used with a DPA microphone, the d:vice™ is able to capture or stream audio in quality previously only available in the studio. When it’s not possible to have an experienced sound engineer on site, the d:vice™ can act as a ‘mini sound engineer in your pocket’.
The d:vice™ MMA-A Digital Audio Interface is a high-quality, dual-channel microphone preamplifier and A/D converter that captures crystal-clear audio via your favorite recording / broadcasting apps. The d:vice™ can be used with all DPA microphones with a MicroDot connector. This flexibility allows any content creator to use the equipment for unexpected situations that might arise during the day. Whether it be a two-channel interview situation or a session of stereo recording ambience sound, the d:vice™ makes it easier for you to do your job.
The d:vice™ MMA-A comes with one Micro USB-B to iOS (Lightning) and one Micro USB-B to PC / Mac (USB-A). Its MicroDot inputs allow it to be connected to all DPA miniature microphones. At about two inches in diameter, the d:vice™ is ultra-compact, easily fitting in your pocket. It provides best-in-class audio quality and is controlled through a remote application on any iOS device. An exclusive DPA app is available for download from the Apple® App store. The app allows you to store gain settings and low-cut filters for ongoing and future personalized use in dedicated presets. Third-party applications can be used to accomplish specific tasks, including but not limited to, live broadcast and high-quality recordings.
