Introducing the VideoMicPro+

July 25, 2017: Sydney Australia – Pro-audio brand RØDE Microphones is announcing an new addition to its best-in-market on-camera category - The VideoMic Pro+.

Announced at RØDEShow 2017, Freedman Electronics 50th anniversary celebration, the VideoMic Pro+ is set to prove that RØDE Microphones has yet again upped the game for the prosumer filmmaker.

Still with the best-in-class Rycote Lyre suspension system on board, the VideoMic Pro+ improves on the existing VideoMic Pro capsule/line tube and windshield, plus boasts a host of new features:

 

  • Automatic Power Function (subject to plug-in power availability) is perfect for the run-and-gun shooter, automatically turning the microphone off when unplugged from the camera.
  • Built-in Battery Door makes replacing the battery a breeze and far less cumbersome than previous VideoMic models - plus it won't get lost.
  • Power options - the VideoMic Pro+ can be powered by the all-new and included RØDE LB-1 Lithium-Ion Rechargeable Battery, 2 x AA Batteries or continuously via Micro USB.
  • Digital Switching - will ensure the user has ultimate capture of the audio signal at the source, reducing post production and editing times. the Digital Switching includes:
    • 2-Stage High Pass Filter to reduce low frequencies such as rumble from traffic or air conditioning.
    • 3-Stage Gain Control, with +20dB function – designed to improve audio quality on DSLR or mirrorless cameras.
    • High Frequency Boost will boost high frequencies enhancing detail and clarity in the recording.
    • Safety Channel to help ensure the signal does not clip when unexpected spikes occur.

"The VideoMic Pro+ is a new benchmark in on-camera microphones," comments Damien Wilson, RØDE and Freedman Group CEO. "We have listened to our customers and are delivering the microphone they've asked for, with features such as the built-in battery door, automatic power function and included Lithium-Ion battery."
