Rode Microphones's parent company Freedman Electronics is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year and to commemorate this event, Rode is slated to release a bunch of new exciting microphones in addition to their latest generation on-camera microphone for DSLR and compact camera users called the Rode VideoMic PRO+ later in 2017.
Popular audio kit manufacturer, Rode Microphones has announced an upgrade to their popular Stereo VideoMic Pro microphone, which now features the acclaimed Rycote Lyre suspension system. The new Lyre suspension system prevents unwanted rumble and vibration noise from the base of the unit by isolating the capsule with an innovative suspension pattern.
At NAB 2016 in Las Vegas, Sennheiser announced a brand new affordable compact shotgun stereo microphone for DSLR and videographers - the MKE 440. The compact unit features a unique twin shotgun microphones mounted in a “V-Stereo” configuration for a more directional pick-up pattern, while still capturing an immersive stereo experience.
In its largest-ever simultaneous product release RØDE has announced six new products at IBC 2015 in Amsterdam. This was a massive event for Rode and the Australian manufacturer added two new microphones, a pair of carbon fibre boompoles, an XLR interface for Apple iOS® devices and an XLR adaptor for the company’s popular RØDELink 2.4GHz digital wireless system to their line-up of products.
