Golden sales for Yellowtec iXm mics to UK universities

HHB Communications has supplied the journalism programmes at Staffordshire University and Sheffield Hallam University with over 50 Yellowtec iXm digital recording microphones.   HHB originally supplied Staffordshire University with 21 iXms for its undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Broadcast Journalism. It has since expanded its stock by an additional ten to cater for students on other broadcast-based awards (Music Broadcasting, Radio Production, Sports Journalism).   Richard Mortimer, media technician for Staffordshire’s Broadcast Journalism Department, commented: “All our students are expected to produce work of a professional standard and we pride ourselves on offering industry-level equipment and facilities for them to work with. The Yellowtec iXm is the ideal tool for our broadcast journalists – it’s robust, has a user-friendly interface and yet offers a great range of recording presets and settings for technical administrators.”   Sheffield Hallam University purchased 21 iXms to replace recording devices that the students found too complicated. Team leader for Sheffield Uni’s Creative Media department John Blythe explained: “The iXm mics were originally purchased as a straight forward recorder because they required no external microphone attachment and they are very simple and straightforward to use. Our journalism students are using these microphones to record interviews and other segments of their radio shows and we are very pleased with the quality of the recordings.”
