The Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro builds on the success of the Rode VideoMic Pro & Stereo VideoMic with improved stereo reproduction, sound quality, and ergonomic design. The Stereo VideoMic's capsule features a matched pair of 1/2" cardioid condenser capsules, mounted in a coincident X/Y position for accurate stereo imagery and detail. The microphone's small, ergonomic footprint features an integrated shock mounting system for superior isolation from vibration and mechanical noise. The multi-strand output cable is terminated with a 1/8" (3.5mm) output connector and delivers significantly lower noise transference than traditional audio cable.
The included shoe-mount features an integrated shock mount system for even further protection against handling noise. The Stereo VideoMic features a high pass filter switch at 75 Hz for minimizing low-frequency noise, and a -10 dB Pad for maximizing headroom for capturing loud signals without distortion. The +20 dB level boost switch is specifically designed to provide a higher quality signal with DSLR cameras. When activated, the camera preamp level is reduced, resulting in a lower noise floor and much clearer recording.
