Wireless PRO from Rode has been designed as a compact wireless microphone and audio recording device for broadcast, wedding video, conference, and educational environments.
Utilising series IV 2.4GHz digital transmission with 128-bit encryption, Rode Wireless PRO delivers audio up to a range of 260m. In addition to the functionality of a wireless system, Rode Wireless PRO offers 32-bit float on-board recording to ensure the audio is safely backed up. 32-bit recording on the transmitters allows the recorded audio to be recovered in post-production, even if the level was too loud or too quiet. Each transmitter allows recording of over 40 hours from the internal or external microphone - useful if the wireless signal has dropout so that the original audio is not lost.
Rode Wireless PRO system consists of 2x transmitters and 1x receiver, however it includes a smart charging case, pair of lavalier microphones, windshields, magnetic clips and cables for connection to external devices. Each transmitter picks up audio via its built-in microphone, or by way of external microphone such as the included Rode Lavalier II microphones. External microphones are connected via a locking 3.5mm jack connector. The receiving unit, which receives signals from both transmitters can be connected to a camera, smartphone, computer or other recording device either via USB or its 3.5mm jack audio output. GainAssist technology automatically controls the microphone levels to ensure they are perfectly balanced. Note: GainAssist does not apply to on-board recordings.
The Wireless PRO receiver features an LCD display that shows you critical information including audio levels, connectivity, and recording status. System settings can also be controlled via the receivers menus and left/right navigation buttons, either with a short-press (less than 1 second) or long-press (1 second or more). Three buttons allows the use to operate functions depending on which screen is displayed, corresponding to the on-screen symbols.
The receiver and transmitters each contain a rechargeable lithium-ion battery capable of up to 7 hours of use when fully charged. They can be charged independently using their respective USB-C ports and connected computer or other USB charging device, or they can be charged simultaneously using the included smart charging case. The charge case can store more than two full recharges for the whole system.
Wireless PRO is capable of recording three different audio sources at the same time - two transmitters, and a receiver mic. The receiver outputs a stereo signal from both its USB-C and 3.5mm connections, resulting in two audio channels. These channels can be routed to the output in a number of different ways, but by default Merged mode is selected. In Merged mode, the two transmitters and receiver microphone, if it is being used are combined into a single summed output. This is useful for live presentation setup, or only using one transmitter and want the audio to be recorded onto both channels of your recording device. Other modes include Split mode - where each transmitter's output is recorded onto separate left/right channel, allowing individual processing in post production; and Safety mode - where the Wireless PRO will also output a second channel of audio -10dB lower than the main channel, useful for reducing the risk of clipping. When Safety mode is activated, all inputs from transmitters and receiver microphone are be merged to the left channel and the safety channel will be output to the right channel.
