What is the Clip presenter mic?

The Clip is a wearable presenter mic for main speakers in presentations, lectures, company all-hands and any other interactions with the audience, whether in person or remote. With its pick-up-and-talk functionality, it's straightforward and hassle-free, allowing speakers to focus solely on delivering their message without any distractions. This user-friendly design is favored over the regular beltpacks, which often require additional lavs, headsets, and special attention to clothing for attachment.

The Clip mic offers a distinct advantage in unsupervised spaces, where its ease of use requires minimal oversight.

The Clip lavalier mic is one of the two wireless microphone transmitters that connect with the Hub receiver and can be bundled up to create the Catchbox Plus system that best suits your needs.

1. On/Off Button

  • The On/Off button for the Clip mic is thoughtfully located under the lever on the backside of the mic
  • This hidden placement ensures a seamless user experience. Users don't need to locate the button because the mic is automatically on and unmuted when picked up from the charging dock, allowing immediate use. 
  • The button remains accessible for specific situations but is generally unnecessary for everyday use.  

2. Pairing

  • Clip presenter mic is paired with the Hub receiver before being shipped out 
  • In case the mic is not paired or if you need to initiate the pairing on your own, here is how to do it

3. LED indicators

  • The line of 5 LED indicators on the front of the Clip shows the battery level
  • The LED indicator on the top of the Clip will show:
    • No light at all: The Clip is not powered
    • Green light: The mic is on and paired with the Hub
    • Yellow light: The mic is on but not paired
    • Yellow and blinking: The mic is in pairing mode

4. Battery life and Charging

  • To initiate charging for the Clip presenter mic, place it on the charging dock. The magnetic pins help to avoid any misalignment and Clip snaps into place every time
  • When fully charged, the battery life of the Clip mic is 8 hrs
  • Clip mic charging docks can be daisy-chained to optimize the use of power outlets, supporting up to six slots = x6 single dock chargers

5. Power Saving Modes

  • If not placed on the charging dock and not moved for 30 min, the Clip presenter mic will enter Low Power mode. After an additional 2 hours, it will go into Shutdown mode. 
  • To wake the Clip from Low Power mode, simply pick it up, and it's ready to be used
  • To wake it from Shutdown mode, either place it on the charging dock or press the on/off button on the backside underneath the lever

6. Mute & Unmute

  • Quickmute function with a single button allows for easy muting and unmuting of the Clip by the presenter 
  • The Clip mic is unmuted when picked up from the charging dock, allowing presenters to simply grab it and start speaking immediately. This user-friendly design and features makes it beneficial for all settings, with a particular advantage in unsupervised spaces.  
  • As soon as it's placed back on the charging dock, The Clip is muted and begins charging

7. Out of Range Alarm

  • The built-in out-of-range alarm alerts the wearer if the Clip presenter mic is taken out of range (and the radiolink with the Hub is lost). This prevents situations where the speaker unintentionally leaves with the mic still on, potentially causing operational issues for the AV team
  • The range of the Clip presenter mic is 100 m/330 ft

8. Features & Connectivity

  • Inside the top part of the Clip mic is an omni-directional microphone that captures clear audio
  • All the microphones in the Catchbox Plus system, including the Clip, operate on the DECT (1.8/1.9 GHz band) license-free radio protocol to connect to the Hub receiver

9. Best Practices for Usage

  • The recommended distance between the mic and the speaker is 20 cm/8 in and wearing the Clip lavalier mic with a lanyard will naturally provide that. Thanks to our advanced audio processing functionalities, even if the distance varies or presenters move their heads, the mic will still ensure great audio quality. 
  • The Clip lavalier mic can be either clipped onto clothing or worn around the neck using the provided lanyard, giving presenters the freedom to wear whatever they prefer, including dresses or delicate fabrics, without any risk of damage.
  • When ordering, make the Clip presenter mic jacket (the colorful, top part of the mic) uniquely yours by customizing it with your university's, company's, or event's colors and logos
  • To clean the Clip lavalier mic, use gentle wet wipes and pat the mic dry with a paper towel after cleaning. Important to avoid using any alcohol-based cleaning solutions
