HHB announces new Røde Stereo VideoMic

Answering industry demand for a high-quality camera-mounted stereo microphone, Australian manufacturer Røde has announced the Stereo VideoMic (SVM) which is now available from UK distributor HHB Communications.
Aiming to build on the unprecedented success of Røde’s existing shotgun-style VideoMic, the SVM is designed to capture detailed stereo audio, offering the same performance levels as its mono VideoMic counterpart.
Based on the company’s acclaimed ultra-low noise microphone technology, the SVM features an X/Y configuration that meets the challenge of professional stereo field recording by imposing a high level of rear noise rejection, whilst retaining the essential ambient sound of the recording environment.
The SVM attaches to the camera with a standard shoe-fitting, and includes a removable high wind furry windshield (known as the ‘Dead Kitten’) and an integral suspension mount, designed to prevent mechanical camera noise bleeding into the captured audio.
Increasing its versatility, the SVM can also be used on a stand or a boom pole, making it ideal for a wide-range of applications from interviews and electronic news gathering to weddings and sports events.
The SVM features the same low-noise circuit design as the VideoMic, 9V battery operation (with LED low-power indicator) and a high-pass filter switch. Output is via a standard 3.5mm mini jack with a switchable –10dB pad, allowing the mic to be used on most cameras with perfect level control.
Steve Angel, Sales Director at HHB Communications, Røde’s exclusive UK distributor, said: “While the original Rode VideoMic has rapidly become the industry standard shotgun mic for camcorder users, it became clear that there was a similar need for a great-sounding camera mic for those users preferring to work in stereo. The SVM meets that need in a robust, affordable, high-quality package.”
