HHB Celebrates 1,000th FlashMic Sold In Germany

With more than 10,000 units in use around the world, the FlashMic Digital Recording Microphone is already the interview recorder of choice for leading broadcasters including ABC Radio, Aljazeera, the BBC, Bloomberg, BSkyB, CNN, NHK, NBC and RAI.
Now HHB has celebrated the sale of its 1,000th FlashMic in Germany where distributor INNOTON has already added national broadcasters WDR and NDR and ORF (Austria) to the prestigious FlashMic user list.
The 1,000th FlashMic in Germany actually went to Radio BasiX, a web Radio project for young people in the Kraichgau region of South Western Germany, whose journalists now enjoy the same recording quality, ease of use and convenient file transfer as their more experienced counterparts in the world's major broadcasters.
Maurice Gundt, Radio BasiX Project Manager, said: "Start early is our motto. It's so easy for our young reporters to get great results with the FlashMic - now they are equipped for every interview."
The young reporters have already put the FlashMic to use interviewing the German handball star Oliver Roggisch.
Elsewhere in the world, the FlashMic has played its part in helping Comic Relief to raise an amazing £59 million so far during events surrounding Red Nose Day 2009 which took place on March 13, money which is being used to help poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged people turn their lives around across Africa, throughout the world's poorest countries and closer to home in the UK.
Lucy McGill, Comic Relief Media Officer, said: "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.
"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."
Combining a studio quality microphone capsule with a broadcast quality Flash recorder and USB interface, the FlashMic range includes omnidirectional and cardiod models, both available with and without line inputs.
Speaking at Musikmesse 2009, HHB Managing Director Ian Jones said: "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."
