The Rode VideoMic X has been dubbed “the ultimate broadcast-grade stereo microphone for on-camera use”. It is suitable for interviews, weddings, live music, sports, and nature shoots and is ideal for one-person productions. With top build quality, circuitry and professional features the VideoMic X is an industry game-changer.

The VideoMic X features a matched pair of 1/2" condenser capsules configured in a stacked X-Y configuration with cardioid polar patterns. The ½” condenser capsules produce a high dynamic range with a wide frequency response of 20Hz - 40kHz. Reproducing high and low frequencies faithfully without horrible colouration. The cardioid polar pattern picks up sound from the front and sides and rejects sounds from the rear and the X-Y configuration captures immersive stereo that accurately reproduces the sound environment - unlike shotgun microphones which isolate a subject.

The enclosure is constructed of a durable lightweight aluminum that helps block Radio Frequencies which can interfere with audio recordings. To avoid handling noise, the microphone capsules are suspended in Rycote Lyre mounts - isolating them from any vibrations or bumps that could potentially ruin your audio.

The VideoMic X has a high pass filter which can block out unwanted low frequency sounds such as wind noise or rumbling air conditioners. It is possible to select from two high-pass frequencies of 75Hz and 150Hz, depending on the frequency of the unwanted noise and whether the subject noise that you actually want to record is impeded in the same Hz range.

To further combat wind noise, Rode provide a windshield with a rubber outer dome structure. The specially developed honeycomb structure provides physical protection for the sensitive capsules, while reducing wind noise in the same manner as RØDE’s acclaimed ‘RedDot-winning Blimp’. For ultra windy conditions a furry windjammer is also supplied.

On the back of the VideoMic X you have a simple push button interface with green LED’s that light up next to your chosen settings. This includes the previously mentioned High-Pass filters as well as a high-frequency boost and level adjustments.

The innovative High Frequency Boost (+6dB @ XHz) is designed to boost the intelligibility of dialogue. Rode recommends engaging the high frequency boost feature to combat the slight loss of high frequency detail experienced when covering the VideoMic with the included wind shields.

The level adjustment feature (-10dB, 0dB, +20dB) makes it possible to attenuate audio signals in loud recording environments such as live music performances or boost the signal in instances where the source audio may be too far away or too quiet.

The microphone is powered by a 9V battery (NOT INCLUDED) or phantom power (+48V) via 3-pin mini-XLR (NOT INCLUDED). If you want to take advantage of the VideoMic X’s balanced outputs then we strongly recommend you purchase a Mini XLR cable separately.

An RF shielded 3.5mm stereo cable is included to connect the unit directly to the mic input of your camera, or if being used off camera, to any external audio recorder with a 3.5mm audio jack socket. info
