The Stereo VideoMic (SVM) allows you to record from the cold-shoe mount on your camera in stereo. Drawing upon the advanced technological developments within the RODE manufacturing facilities, RODE has created a new video microphone. This product, like the VideoMic (VM), now the world’s biggest selling on camera shotgun microphone, is also destined to become an Industry standard. It not only offers the same sound quality and performance as its predecessor, but it also meets the industry demand for stereo recording.
Now videographers may use true “studio” stereo recording techniques in the field with ease. The XY configuration enables the SVM to capture the true ambience of the recording space, while still offering a high level of rear rejection and low noise. Fitted with a shoe mount, the SVM has the same low-noise circuit design as the VM. The SVM offers 9V battery operation, an LED battery status indicator, a highpass filter switch, and a -10dB pad switch that allows for the mic to be used on most cameras with perfect level control.
You can also use the SVM as a remote mic on a stand, or a RODE boom pole, which truly makes this versatile product well suited for all video applications including Electronic News Gathering (ENG), weddings, sports events, and interviews.
