There is only one Rycote® | Look for the Rycote logo

Duo-Lyre shock mount

All of these InVision microphone suspensions for camera mounting utilise the Duo-Lyre shock mount. Also available on the INV-7 HG Mk III stand and boom pole mounting, the Duo-Lyre is designed to hold the microphone towards the back while supporting the majority of the weight at the front to accommodate slip-on wind protection such as the Classic-Softie, Super Softie, and BBG Windshields.

InVision On Camera

The InVision® On Camera shock mount is designed specifically for mounting to a camera using the shoe mount or to attach to a 3/8” boom pole. Utilising the Rycote patented Lyre® technology the Duo-Lyre shock mount not only securely holds the microphone due to its special soft-grip inner moulded clip, it also has excellent protection against shock and handling noise with substantial improvement over traditional rigid on-camera microphone mounts. The height of the mount is designed to allow for the microphone and windshield to be above the lens, keeping it out of shot and away from the grinding noises of the lens.

InVision Video Hot Shoe Mount

Designed specifically for mounting to a camera or camcorder hot shoe, this Duo-Lyre shock-mount provides excellent protection from camera motor and drive noise and vibrations with substantial improvement over traditional on-camera microphone mounts. Professional isolation is provided by Duo-Lyre suspensions attached to a mounting bar designed for secure attachment into the slot of a hot shoe mount on top of a camera. The mount can be rotated 360 degrees around the camera shoe, for maximum ease of use. The additional height of the mounts allows for the microphone and windscreen to be held up and behind the lens, to keep it out of shot.

InVision Video ¼” Adaptor

Designed for mounting to the 1/4” thread present on top of many cameras, this lightweight, durable clamp-style shock-mount securely holds the microphone in place. Accommodating microphones between 19-25 mm in diameter, the clip is attached to the durable Duo-Lyre shock-mount for industry-leading isolation while protecting the microphone from vibration and noise caused by camera motor, drive and handling. Additional isolation is provided with a flexible cable clamp, to prevent cable-borne noise.

InVision Softie Lyre Mount CCA

The Softie Lyre Mount with Camera Clamp Adaptor (CCA) attaches onto many professional Sony or Canon cameras with onboard 25-27mm diameter mic holders. The CCA adaptor fits securely into the mic holder, with no twisting or slipping. The Duo-Lyre shock-mount clip accommodates 19–25mm diameter microphones, and is attached to the isolating Lyre suspensions providing professional isolation from vibrations and handling noise. The position of the CCA when fitted, lifts the microphone up and backwards and therefore keeps the microphone and windscreen out of shot – even on wide shots. User flexibility is added with an integrated brass 3/8″ thread for boom pole attachment.

InVision Softie Lyre Mount MHR

The Softie Lyre Mount with MHR replaces built-in or accessory microphone clips with the Duo-Lyre shock mount to provide professional isolation for externally-mounted microphones. As standard camcorder-mounted microphone clips intended for external mics are susceptible to camera and cable generated vibration and handling noise, InVision Softie Lyre Mount MHR replaces standard shock mounts to provide professional isolation from camera vibration, shock and cable borne noise. Supplied with three sets of metric screws (20mm-long M2.5, M3 and M4 types), this upgrade shock mount can be directly connected to many common camcorders.
