RØDELink Digital Wireless System
RØDELink is a fully digital wireless audio system that utilises a next-generation 2.4GHz, 128-bit encrypted digital transmission sent on two channels simultaneously, providing a high-resolution 24-bit/44.1k digital audio signal at a range of up to 100 metres. The RØDELink system will consist of a number of receiver and transmitter options, and will be available in kits for specific audio solutions across film, news gathering, presentation and stage use. The first of these to be released, The Filmmaker Kit, will consist of a beltpack transmitter, on-camera or beltpack receiver, and RØDE’s broadcast quality Lavalier microphone.
RØDE NTG4 and NTG4+ Shotgun Microphones
RØDE has also announced two new shotgun microphones, the NTG4 and NTG4+. With an all-new capsule, the NTG4 and NTG4+ exhibit low noise and high sensitivity, giving you cleaner audio at the source. On-board digital switching now controls a 75Hz high pass filter, 10db PAD and high frequency boost, allowing you to compensate for any high frequency attenuation when using a DeadCat style furry windshield. The NTG4+ comes equipped with an internal rechargeable lithium battery. Providing up to 150 hours operating time, the battery is conveniently charged via any USB power source using the supplied MicroUSB cable.
RØDE NTR Ribbon Microphone
With the goal of creating “The world’s very best ribbon microphone”, RØDE have announced the NTR. The unique design places the ribbon distinctly separate to the microphone frame and body, allowing the greatest possible acoustic transparency around the ribbon element and minimising resonance. The ribbon element itself is only 1.8 microns thick – one of the thinnest ribbons in existence. Surrounding the ribbon element is a chemically etched all-metal layer of mesh – the same used on the SMR pop shield. This is extremely rigid while exhibiting super low density, resulting in greater acoustic transparency. Married to RØDE’s ribbon element is a high output, ultra-low noise, low impedance transformer.
