The Stereo VideoMic (SVM) allows you to record from the cold-shoe mount on your camera in stereo. Drawing upon the advanced technological developments within the RODE manufacturing facilities, RODE has created a new video microphone. This product, like the VideoMic (VM), now the world's biggest selling on camera shotgun microphone, is also destined to become an Industry standard. It not only offers the same sound quality and performance as its predecessor, but it also meets the industry demand for stereo recording.
Now videographers may use true "studio" stereo recording techniques in the field with ease. The XY configuration enables the SVM to capture the true ambience of the recording space, while still offering a high level of rear rejection and low noise. Fitted with a shoe mount, the SVM has the same low-noise circuit design as the VM. The SVM offers 9V battery operation, an LED battery status indicator, a highpass filter switch, and a -10dB pad switch that allows for the mic to be used on most cameras with perfect level control.
You can also use the SVM as a remote mic on a stand, or a RODE boom pole, which truly makes this versatile product well suited for all video applications including Electronic News Gathering (ENG), weddings, sports events, and interviews.
The RØDE Stereo VideoMic is a high-quality stereo microphone designed for use with camcorders, DSLR cameras and portable audio recorders. Two high-resolution 1/2" condenser capsules are mounted in a fixed X/Y stereo array, providing a very natural stereo recording, while still offering a high level of rear rejection. The Stereo VideoMic is an ideal microphone for capturing environmental and ambient sounds, as well as live music. For dialogue and directional applications the RØDE VideoMic and VideoMic Pro are recommended. An in-built shock mounting system isolates the Stereo VideoMic capsule and electronics from its mount, providing isolation from external physical factors that may cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the microphone. Its standard sized shoe mount also includes a 3/8" thread in the base for easy mounting on a boom pole or stand. In addition to the microphone's native 40Hz-20kHz response a selectable high-pass filter at 80Hz is available, which will prevent low end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded. A -10dB level attenuation (or PAD), selectable from the rear face of the microphone, allows recording of loud sound sources, such as live music or motorsport. The RØDE Stereo VideoMic stereo on-camera microphone is designed in Australia and covered by RØDE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.
