The Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro provides a high quality stereo option for videographers. Ideal for recording music, or the atmospheric ambience essential in building a realistic audio scene.
Building on the success of the VideoMic Pro, which launched in early 2011. This quickly became the standard for DSLR on-camera audio. The new Stereo VideoMic Pro provides a high quality stereo option for videographers.
Based around a matched pair of high sensitivity ½”cardioid condenser capsules. Arranged in a coincident XY pair, Rode’s Stereo VideoMic Pro provides a wide stereo image with natural depth.
The Stereo VideoMic Pro builds on the feature set of the Rode VideoMic Pro. For example, an ergonomic form factor perfectly suited to DSLR, consumer camcorders and large-sensor video cameras. The integrated shock mounting system provides superior isolation from vibration and mechanical noise. That otherwise degrade the recording quality. Additionally the lightweight yet robust multi-strand cable provides excellent acoustic decoupling. The result is significantly lower noise transference than traditional audio cable.
Features of the Rode Stereo Videomic Pro
The user friendly designed rear of the Stereo VideoMic Pro body features the power and equalisation controls. In addition, a high pass filter at 75Hz which cuts out noise. For example generated by air conditioning, traffic and other undesirable low frequency interference.
A -10dB PAD allows the user to reduce the sensitivity of the VideoMic. This makes it suitable for recording loud sound sources such as live music or at sporting events.
Finally, the Rode VideoMic Pro, the Stereo VideoMic Pro features a +20dB level boost. When activated, reduce the low quality camera preamp level. The result is a lower noise floor and much clearer recording.
