VideoMic Pro is a true shotgun microphone designed for use with camcorders,
DSLR cameras and portable audio recorders as a source of primary and reference
heart of the VideoMic Pro is an all-new 1/2″ condenser capsule that
provides broadcast-quality audio via a 3.5mm minijack connector (outputting the
mono signal to both left and right channels) with an incredibly low self-noise
of just 14db. A super-cardioid polar pattern ensures that surrounding audio is
minimised, and your recording is focused on the subject in front of the camera.
integrated Rycote® Lyre® based shock mounting system separates the VideoMic Pro
capsule and electronics from its mount, providing isolation from external
physical factors that may cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the
microphone. Constructed from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic, the
Lyre® provides superior acoustic suspension to traditional elastic solutions,
and will never wear out, sag or snap.
accessible on the rear face of the microphone are the power, filter and level
controls. In addition to the microphone’s native 40Hz-20kHz response a
selectable high-pass filter at 80Hz is available, which will prevent low end
noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded.
controls are the level settings, which attenuate or boost the recorded level as
required. The -10dB level attenuation (or PAD) is ideal for recording loud
sound sources, such as live music, motorsport, or interviews where the subject
is very close to the camera. The +20dB level boost is designed for use with
DSLR cameras, allowing the user to reduce the camera’s preamp level (or
mic-input level), effectively reducing the amount of noise generated by the
camera’s comparatively low quality audio circuitry.
uses a standard sized shoe mount for on camera use, and features a 3/8″
thread in the base of the mount for easy boom pole mounting.
VideoMic pro is battery powered, and provides over 70 hours recording from a
single 9V battery.
VideoMic is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE Microphones’
industry leading 10 year warranty.
