InVision Broadcast & Film

InVision Broadcast & Film Suspensions provide unparalleled protection against shock, vibration, and handling noise for miniature, probe, handheld, and shotgun microphones. Utilising Rycote’s exclusive Lyre technology, these virtually unbreakable shock-mounts are designed with an integral cable clamp to isolate the microphone from cable and stand-borne noise.

With several models designed for use with a vast number of microphone makes and models, InVision Broadcast & Film suspensions provide outstanding shock and handling isolation performance with microphones mounted to boom poles, as well as floor, desk, and suspended stands.

Shock Mounts
for Slip-on Windshields

Rycote has designed the INV-6 HEAVY and INV-7HG MKIII shock mounts for use with slip-on windshields. Ideal for use with Super-Softie, Classic-Softie and BBG Windshield models, these robust shock mounts provide excellent isolation for boom pole and stand mounting applications.

The INV-7HG MKIII is one of our most popular InVision Broadcast & Film shock mounts. Suitable for 19-34mm diameter mics, the incorporated Duo-Lyre shock mount has a special ‘soft’ grip moulded into the clip. This securely holds the microphone, preventing any slippage or twisting and providing the necessary stability for slip-on windshields and front-heavy microphones.
