The VideoMic Me-L from RODE
RODE LAUNCHES THE VIDEOMic ME-L FOR APPLE iOS DEVICES AT VIDCON 2018
June 21st 2018 PST, Vidcon, AnaheI'm California: RODE Microphones, Australian pro audio giant, announces the release of the new VideoMic Me-L at the world’s largest online creators Expo, VidCon.
The VideoMic Me-L is a Lightning connector equipped high-quality directional microphone with a compact and lightweight body designed for Apple iOS devices. Its Lightning connector plugs directly into the device, utilising the device’s internal power for instant plug-and-play – no batteries necessary. A standard 3.5mm headphone jack on the rear allows audio play-through in real-time and effortless audio playback.
The VideoMic Me-L is made from durable aluminium and coated in a military-grade ceramic finish, providing a hardwearing chassis that’s resistant to scratching. It’s a build quality far and away from the competition, reflected in superior sound. The microphone also comes packaged with a deluxe furry windshield for shooting outdoors and in adverse weather.
The VideoMic Me-L is suitable for vloggers, musicians and any iPhone users seeking to drastically improve their iOS device’s quality of sound.
“The original VideoMic Me is one of our most accessible mics and the world’s most popular microphone for mobile audio,” says Damien Wilson, RODE CEO. “The new VideoMic Me-L’s Lightning connector and plug-and-play functionality is a great addition to the VideoMic family, introducing the latest iOS devices to RODE ’s made-for-purpose mic.
“Vidcon is the perfect venue for launching the VideoMic Me-L at: 50,000 emerging online creators converge at AnaheI'm over the weekend and all are looking to create the best content they can. George Lucas once said, ‘the sound and music are 50% of the entertainment in a movie’. With sound quality 50% of any decent video experience, the VideoMic Me-L is the perfect choice for today’s creative generation.”
Just looked this thing up, @$60 street price, it seems like a good buy for recording ideas. Alot of the iOS interfaces always seemed a little clunky to me. I see the rode video mic used a lot in interviews with atheletes I watch.
I think RØDE is smart getting into the mobile audio business. They have the most advanced engineering facility, do everything in Oz. Their stuff looks very nicely made.
