Lavs to shotguns, handhelds to far-fields, RODE's wireless RodeLink Newsshooter Kit transmits any broadcast mic, in stunning fidelity, directly to your camera via a 128-bit-encrypted 2.4Ghz signal. The mic transmitter has a locking XLR mount with +48V phantom that can plug directly into a handheld dynamic or condenser mic for in-person interviews or a shotgun mic for ambient pickup. There's also a 3.5mm TRS input with locking connecter and +2–5V plug-in power to support lavaliers. A wireless range of over 300 feet gives sound designers plenty of freedom to explore the creative space. The mic transmitter is paired with an included camera-mount wireless receiver with shoe mount and OLED display. Both the transmitter and receiver can be powered via AA batteries, USB power, or common Sony NP-F batteries for tremendously versatility on location. Streamline your sound and film setup with the wireless RODE RodeLink Newsshooter Kit — available now through Music Experience.
One of the truly standout features of the RODELink is the 1-touch pairing, which syncs your transmitter and receiver instantly. Just power on the receiver and transmitter and the two will sync within seconds. The RODELink also uses an encrypted digital transmission sent on two channels simultaneously that scans frequencies and chooses the strongest signal available. The RODELink also detects interference and will switch to a new frequency to keep you connected to the most reliable and secure signal possible.
The RODELink's receiver and transmitter can be continuously powered with a micro USB cable, or you can get 10 hours of power from two AA batteries. The receiver features an easy-to-read OLED display that informs you of battery status so that you don't have to worry about your recording project for the day.
RØDELink represents the next generation of digital wireless systems. Using a Series II 2.4GHz digital transmission with 128-bit encryption, it is able to constantly monitor and hop between frequencies to maintain the strongest possible signal level at a range of up to 100 metres* (over 100 yards). The RØDELink Newsshooter Kit provides everything you need to start shooting video wirelessly with XLR microphones, including a camera-mounted receiver and an XLR transmitter. The receiver (RX-CAM) features an OLED display with information on level, battery status (receiver and transmitter), mute and channel selection. The unit can be mounted on a standard camera shoe mount, 3/8" thread or belt-clip, and for added versatility the shoe mount can be located in one of two positions. The transmitter (TX-XLR) easily connects to handheld presentation microphones as well as shotgun microphones, with a 3.5mm input and headphone outputy.
