Røde has expanded its RødeLink range with the Newsshooter Kit, which includes a camera-mounted transmitter and the new XLR transmitter (TX-XLR).

Røde TX-XLRThe kit connects to handheld presentation microphones as well as shotgun microphones, using a 3.5mm input and headphone output. Providing one-touch sync with RødeLink receivers and supplying P48 phantom power, the unit can be powered by two AA, a Sony NP-F970 battery or continuously via Micro USB. Røde also plans to make each of the RødeLink devices available separately, so customers can mix and match to suit their needs.

Røde has also introduced two professional carbon fibre boompoles, complementing the company’s range of aluminium poles. Weighing 535g, the Boompole Pro extends to 3m and collapses to 810mm. Each of the five pole sections is comprised completely from carbon fibre making it incredibly lightweight while maintaining high levels of strength. The sections are easily extendable with one hand thanks to an intuitive twist-lock mechanic.

Designed for use with professional shotgun microphones such as the Røde NTG3 as well as the Blimp windshield system, the Boompole Pro also joins Røde’s boom pole range, which now comprises five models ranging in size, weight, and construction material.

Alongside this, Røde has announced the Micro Boompole Pro, a very thin version of the full-size carbon fibre model, optimised for use with the new VideoMicro microphone. Using a modular design, the Micro Boompole Pro’s three sections combine to a maximum length of 2.2m. Using an industry standard thread, these sections can also be used to extend the Boompole Pro.

The Boompole Pro and Micro Boompole Pro are shipping now, while the RødeLink Newsshooter Kit will be available Q4 2015.
