RODE BROADCASTER MICROPHONE
Designed specifically for on-air radio broadcast environments, the Rode Broadcaster is a large-diaphragm condenser type, with end-firing orientation to avoid obscuring the script tray and displays. Other specialist features include an integrated warning light!
The capsule is shock-mounted with a 1 inch diaphragm; low distortion performance is coupled with a frequency response tailored to give the warmth crucial to broadcast applications. A switched high-pass filter is provided along with a red 'On-Air' LED which can be controlled externally to inform the user when the microphone is 'live', for example (see Application note). XLR-3 connector, 48V, 24V phantom powering.
Included accessories: M2 stand mount.
Optional accessories: WS2 windshield, made of sculpted acoustic foam.
As dispatched, the microphone has a 3-pin XLR connector. In this configuration, the inbuilt LED indicator illuminates when phantom power is applied to the microphone. It cannot be controlled separately. However, included with the microphone is a 5-pin XLR insert. By replacing the 3-pin insert with this, two further pins become available to control the LED separately. The replacement of the insert requires technical ability and soldering.
