RØDE's New Stereo VideoMic X On-Camera Microphone Promises Great Audio Quality in a Tiny Package
It wasn't just video gear introduced at IBC today. RØDE Microphones introduced the Stereo VideoMic X, an on-camera microphone made for professional use, with a more professional price tag to go along with it.

Here's RØDE on the features:
The mic features a matched pair of ½” true-condenser capsules, configured in a stacked X-Y configuration, providing a highly-immersive soundscape. Each capsule is supported by the Rycote® Lyre® shock-mounting system, providing isolation from vibration as well as knocks and bumps.
Digital switching on the rear of the SVMX allows the user to control the level adjustment (-10dB or +20dB), high-pass filter (0/75/150Hz) and an innovative high-frequency boost (+6dB @ XHz) designed to boost the intelligibility of dialogue.
In a first for the VideoMic range, professional-grade balanced outputs are available on the side of the body, in addition to the RF shielded 3.5mm stereo output cable.

The Stereo VideoMic X is going to run $800, and should be available by the end of November.
