New York, NY (November 20, 2019)—The RØDE VideoMic NTG Microphone, launched today, is intended for filmmaking, broadcast, and content creation applications. It uses the same pro audio annular line tube technology as the company’s new NTG5 broadcast shotgun mic that was released in October this year.
The acoustic design of the RØDE VideoMic NTG Microphone, first introduced with the NTG5, is based around a directional supercardioid polar pattern and flat frequency response.
It sports a variable gain control, allowing the user to adjust the mic’s output from mic level to line level to headphone level. Meanwhile, an auto-sensing, 3.5 mm output automatically switches between TRS and TRRS to accommodate both cameras (TRS) and mobile devices (TRRS), so adaptor cables are not necessary.
A USB output allows the RØDE VideoMic NTG Microphone to be used as a USB microphone for recording directly to a computer, tablet, or smartphone. An onboard headphone output allows users to monitor audio while using the USB output. Digital switching controls a high-pass filter, – 20 dB pad, high frequency boost and safety channel.
Other features include a dB peak warning light, built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides up to 30 hours of recording on a two-hour charge, a Rycote Lyre shock mount and a sliding rail mount to adjust mic placement on a camera cold shoe.
The VideoMic NTG Mic is shipping and available with an MSRP of US $249.
