The Stereo VideoMic X is the ultimate broadcast-grade stereo microphone for on-camera use. Utilising all-metal construction, it is incredibly robust making it ideal for regular professional use, while also providing high levels of resistance to RF interference. The mic features a matched pair of ½” true-condenser capsules, configured in a stacked X-Y configuration, providing a highly-immersive soundscape.
Each capsule is supported by the Rycote® Lyre® shock-mounting system, providing isolation from vibration as well as knocks and bumps. Digital switching on the rear of the SVMX allows the user to control the level adjustment (-10dB or +20dB), high-pass filter (0/75/150Hz) and an innovative high-frequency boost (+6dB @ XHz) designed to boost the intelligibility of dialogue. In a first for the VideoMic range, professional-grade balanced outputs are available on the side of the body, in addition to the RF shielded 3.5mm stereo output cable. An outer dome structure provides physical protection for the sensitive capsules, while reducing wind noise in the same manner as RØDE’s RedDot-winning Blimp.

The RØDE Stereo VideoMic X is a truly professional on-camera microphone that captures broadcast quality audio with high levels of resistance to RF interference. A matched pair of true-condenser capsules, in a stacked X-Y configuration are housed in an all-metal construction for capturing the best recordings in the most demanding environments.

Offering an industry-leading 10-year warranty, broadcasters have the option of outputting audio with either a 3.5mm stereo output or a balanced signal via mini XLR. These unique features ensure a broadcast-grade output for camera systems and audio recorders in any professional application.
Superior protection from wind noise, unwanted vibrations, knocks and bumps is ensured via an outer dome structure that provides physical protection for the sensitive capsules, and an integrated Rycote Lyre shock-mounting system. Topping off these professional options are level adjustment controls (-10dB or +20dB), a high-pass filter (0/75/150Hz) and a high-frequency boost (+6dB @ 5kHz).
The Stereo VideoMic X can be powered by 9V battery (up to 30 hours), or via P48 phantom power using XLR connectivity.
