For videographers who need a simple way to record audio but refuse to sacrifice sound quality, The Rode VideoMic NTG puts broadcast-level shotgun mic performance in a convenient camera-mount format. Employing the same revolutionary acoustic design as the Rode NTG5 broadcast shotgun mic, the VideoMic NTG is covered in perforated soundholes along its length, which help deliver stunningly accurate and uncolored recordings. With its highly directional supercardioid polar pattern and flat frequency response, the VideoMic NTG is exceptionally versatile and can be used in a variety of applications, including narrative and documentary filmmaking, livestreaming, and YouTube content creation. Videographers and production sound engineers at Music Experience turn to Rode’s shotgun mics for their unmatched sound and field-ready features!
Designed to circumvent common field recording issues, the VideoMic NTG is outfitted with a switchable highpass filter to reduce low-frequency rumble, a high-frequency boost to restore lost sparkle from windscreens and furries, a -20dB pad for loud sources, a peak warning light to prevent distortion, and a switchable safety channel that records a backup channel at -20dB in case the main channel gets clipped. Also, when you’re out in the field, the last thing you want to worry about is replacing a dead battery. That’s why Rode equipped the VideoMic NTG with a high-performance rechargeable lithium-ion battery with 30+ hours of battery life that can be charged via USB while in operation.
The VideoMic NTG is built for flexibility and ready for any recording situation. A unique, infinitely variable gain control makes it easy to match the output level from the mic to the input level of a recording device. Whether you’re recording straight into a camera, mobile device, preamp, or other external interface, you’ll get perfect gain staging every time. And an auto-sensing 3.5mm input automatically switches between TRS and TRRS inputs, eliminating the need for adapter cables. Additionally, it doubles as a full-featured USB microphone perfect for voiceovers and podcasting!.
The VideoMic NTG is a supremely versatile microphone that delivers incredible audio anywhere you need it. Use it with your camera to record broadcast-grade sound in the field. Use it with your smartphone or tablet for crystal-clear audio on the go. Use it as a desktop USB mic for podcasting, gaming, voice calls and more. One microphone. Endless possibilities.
The VideoMic NTG is extremely flexible, with an array of features to help you take on any recording situation. Digital switching gives you access to a high-pass filter (flat/75Hz/150Hz), a high-frequency boost for enhancing clarity and detail, a pad (with a -20dB cut), and a safety channel. It also features a unique infinitely variable gain control for precisely tailoring your output to your recording device, an auto-sensing 3.5mm output that accommodates connection to both cameras and mobile devices (no more messing around with adaptor cables), and a handy peak warning light so you can ensure your audio never clips.
In addition to being a incredible on-camera microphone, the VideoMic NTG is a fully-featured USB microphone that can be plugged into a computer, perfect for recording voice-overs, podcasts, gaming or livestreaming. When in USB mode, the 3.5mm jack doubles as a headphone output for seamless audio monitoring. The VideoMic NTG also pairs perfectly with tablets and smartphones, turning your mobile device into a pro-quality content creation machine.
The VideoMic NTG features the same revolutionary line tube technology as the RØDE NTG5, which employs acoustic perforations along the length of the microphone in place of the linear slots found in other shotguns and on-camera microphones. This innovative design delivers unmatched transparency, and a natural, uncoloured sound. Add to this an incredibly flat frequency response, highly directional supercardioid polar pattern, and very low self-noise, and what you have is a compact on-camera microphone that contends with the world’s best shotgun mics.
