HHB Communications’ IBC stand played host to the world launch of six new products from Røde Microphones, including new mics, a digital interface, two boom poles and a new wireless audio package.

Chief among the launches were two new additions to its VideoMic family of on-camera microphones, the VideoMicro and VideoMic Me.

Measuring 80mm long, the VideoMicro is a small, lightweight, directional on-camera microphone designed for use on compact cameras. Designed to reduce distracting peripheral sounds and focusses on the audio in front of the camera, it features more forgiving pick-up than Røde’s other on-camera microphones, making it suitable for recording indoors.

The VideoMic Me (pictured) is a high-quality directional microphone designed for Apple iPhone and iPad. Featuring a TRRS connector and adjustable mount, it is also equipped with a headphone jack located at its rear to allow for monitoring and playback without removing the mic.

Also new from the Australian manufacturer and software developer were the i-XLR, a digital XLR interface for Apple iOS devices; an updated version of the Røde Rec app; the Newsshooter Kit, an addition to its RØDELink range of digital wireless systems which includes a camera-mounted transmitter and new XLR transmitter (TX-XLR); and two new carbon-fibre boompoles.

In addition to the Røde announcements, stand 8.D56 welcomed for the first time – as revealed by PSNEurope last month – the Roland OHRCA M-5000C, a compact, ~30″ version of its M-5000 digital mixing console (see IBC 2015: M-5000C, new compact Roland mixer, to get first European showing for more info on the M-5000C).

TC Electronic also chose the HHB Communications booth as the venue for its announcement of updates for the Clarity X monitoring system and Loudness Pilot loudness normalisation controller.
