Our friends over at RØDE have announce a new mic for doing field reports called the “Reporter”
They have also added a removable ‘flag' somewhat different from the traditional triangular mic flag for putting on a corporate logo – this one goes above the mic instead of below – bringing the logo closer to the talent's face (and presumably more visible in camera).
Friday November 9, 2012 – Australian audio equipment manufacturer RØDE Microphones has announced a new addition to its line of broadcast and AV products, the Reporter.
Designed for handheld interview and presentation applications, the Reporter features an omnidirectional dynamic capsule that is designed to allow the user freedom of use, without the technique related issues typical of directional end-address microphones. Additionally its frequency response has been specially tailored for voice reproduction, to maximise intelligibility and deliver crisp, clear results in almost any condition.
The microphone features a durable die-cast aluminium alloy body coated in a discrete matte black anti-glare finish. An innovative multi-layer mesh basket protects the microphone from environmental noise without the need for a bulky and distracting foam wind shield.
It is supplied with a removable microphone ‘flag’ that can accommodate high-visibility branding.
The Reporter is covered by RØDE’s industry-leading support guarantee, with a twelve month warranty ‘out of the box’ that is easily increased to ten years free of charge, following online registration of the microphone at rodemic.com.
