Cisco’s Flip Video has announced an all-new accessory program called Designed for Flip to expand the Flip Video experience for consumers. New Designed for Flip accessories announced today include a range of products including: wide angle lens, two different types of enhanced external microphones, waterproof cases, battery chargers and a pocket projector.

“People choose Flip because it makes capturing and sharing video simple, affordable, and most of all, fun,” said Simon Fleming-Wood, senior director of marketing for Cisco’s Consumer Products. “The new Designed for Flip program extends the fun with more choices from leading accessory companies so Flip users can do more and go more places with their Flips.”

New Designed for Flip and FlipPort

A key component of the Designed for Flip initiative is a new Flip Video feature called FlipPort. The FlipPort is a uniquely developed connector found on the bottom of the new Flip UltraHD 8 GB/2 hour video camera that will become a standard feature on future generations of Flip video cameras. The FlipPort, will allow a range of specialized accessories to easily plug right in to Flip video cameras.

New Designed for Flip products using FlipPort include Mikey for Flip, from Blue Microphones, a professional quality external microphone that lets Flip users capture even better sound.    Scosche will be offering a wireless lavaliere microphone that will enable up close audio ideal for interviews. iGo is also offering three new products:

  •  the Overtime Battery extender which doubles the Flip Video battery life;
  • the Charge Anywhere power adapter can charge two products at once such as a Flip video camera and another USB accessory;  
  • the new Pocket Projector will allow Flip owners to instantly project and watch their Flip video clips directly from the video camera anywhere and on any flat surface up to the size of a 70″ TV.

In addition, Seagate has plans to support Flip video cameras with FlipPort in the coming months.

For all Flip video cameras, the Designed for Flip accessory line also features a wide assortment of products to let users do more with their Flip. New accessories now available include Flip Waterproof cases from Aquapac, which allow consumers to use their Flip video camera for activities such as sailing, snorkeling and skiing, a line of underwater cases from Ikelite, ideal for scuba diving and a new magnetic Wide Angle Lens, from Bower, that makes it easy to capture wide-angle video footage.
