DVCreator Location Sound Package 2 - Featuring the RODE VideoMic
Extend the reach of the RODE Videomic with this great starter package. For use with XLR based cameras, this system is designed to be a low cost way of extending the reach of the RODE Videomic by converting the 3.5mm signal to XLR. The included boom pole and 20' cable allow you to get close to the action while the "Deadcat' provides wind protection outdoors.
The RØDE VideoMic is a professional grade 1/2" condenser shotgun microphone designed for use with consumer video cameras and personal audio recorders.
The integrated shock mounting system isolates the VideoMic capsule and electronics from its all-metal shoe mount, providing isolation from external physical factors that may cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the microphone.
Its standard sized shoe mount also includes a 3/8" thread in the base for easy mounting on a boom pole or stand. (note that cameras with proprietary sized mounts require an additional adaptor.)
Its super cardioid polar pattern is highly directional, focusing on the subject in front of the camera, and minimising any surrounding sounds.
In addition to the microphone's native 40Hz-20kHz response a selectable high-pass filter at 80Hz is available, which will prevent low end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded.
A -10dB and -20dB level attenuation (or PAD), selectable from inside the battery compartment, allows recording of loud sound sources, such as live music or motorsport.
The RØDE VideoMic directional on-camera microphone is covered by RØDE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.
The Dead Cat windshield is designed for minimising any wind noise when recording in high wind conditions.
Its artificial fur is specially designed so as to minimise wind noise while remaining acoustically transparent.
The RØDE Boompole is a high grade professional boom pole for location recording, machined from high grade aluminium. The boom pole allows you to mount your microphone securely and swivel it in a range of directions that will allow you to easily change positions and follow your sound source.

Audio Technica 20' XLR Cable
Audio-Technica Premium Microphone Cables are engineered for maximum signal transfer and minimum loss. Designed for low-impedance operation, these balanced cables feature heavy-duty construction and professional Neutrik® connectors. To protect signal quality, each conductor has an individual spiral shield inside the molded insulating sheath. A conductive PVC layer inside each shield dissipates static buildup during flexing.
- Dual copper outer shields and twin conductive PVC inner shields protect cable signal quality with 100% coverage
- Professional Neutrik® connectors ensure superior signal integrity and oustanding strain relief
- Heavy-duty PVC jacket stands up to tough use
- Heavy-duty 24-gauge stranded copper conductors offer optimal signal transfer
- Extra flexibility and low memory for ease of use/storage
The VXLR is used to convert a Mono 3.5 mm mini-jack to a 3 pin XLR.
