Introducing the RØDE SC15, a New Cable That Unlocks Complete iOS Compatibility For the VideoMic NTG

The VideoMic NTG is now officially MFi-certified, unlocking complete compatibility with Lightning-equipped iOS devices, including iPhone, iPad and iPod. We have also released a new Lightning Accessory Cable, the SC15, which is perfect for connecting the VideoMic NTG to Apple mobile devices.

Released in late 2019, the VideoMic NTG revolutionised on-camera shotgun microphones. With its innovative acoustic designed serving up stunning audio quality and an expansive feature set unlike anything else out there, the VideoMic NTG redefined on-camera audio. 

One of the most ingenious features of the VideoMic NTG is the USB-C audio output, which allows it to be plugged into a computer, tablet or smartphone and used as a full-featured USB microphone.

Previously, the VideoMic NTG was only compatible with Lightning-equipped iOS devices using the 3.5mm output. Now, you can plug your VideoMic NTG into your iPhone, iPad or iPod via USB with the RØDE SC15, unleashing the full potential of the mic, including:
 

  • Headphone monitoring with complete volume control using the variable output knob
     
  • Two-way audio transmission for making video calls
     
  • Access to the safety channel, which creates a second output at -20dB in case the main channel distorts
     
  • High-quality 24-bit/48kHz digital audio conversion

The SC15 has been designed specifically for connecting the VideoMic NTG to Apple mobile devices with a Lightning port. At 300mm long, it’s the perfect length for use in a compact mobile recording rig, and even features a junction box that slots neatly into the VideoMic NTG shock mount cable management system.

If you already own a VideoMic NTG, you will need to update its firmware to use it with iOS devices with the SC15 – download the latest firmware here.

This powerful update solidifies the VideoMic NTG as the most versatile VideoMic ever. Whether atop a DSLR camera, on a desktop, or with a smartphone, it will excel in any situation.
