Rode has some great news for indie filmmakers and those frequently filming events and getting vox pop interviews – their Rode TX-M2 handheld wireless microphone is now sold separately and can be added to any RodeLink Wireless Filmmakers Kit that have been extremely popular with video producers due to their accessible price, license-free performance, and hassle-free setup.
The Rode TX-M2 is priced at only $299 and offers coverage of up to 320-some feet (or about 100m) and operates in the license-free 2.4GHz spectrum while also offering 128-bit encryption. For content creators requiring different microphone options to suit any situation, the TX-M2 offers an affordable, stylish, durable and compact handheld solution.
Designed and made in Australia, the RØDELink TX-M2 microphone was initially available only with the RodeLink Performer Kit and paired with the Rode RX-DESK receiver, however now you can also pair it with the RX-CAM receiver in your RodeLink Filmmaker Kit.
The TX-M2 uses a perfectly balanced wireless condenser microphone for singers, presenters, and reporters delivering crystal clear audio and incredibly low handling noise. Rode’s next generation digital wireless technology is hard at work here – constantly monitoring frequencies and automatically switch to the strongest possible signal level, so you are always given the best quality of sound.
The TX-M2 is powered by the LB-1 Lithium-Ion Rechargeable Battery that provides over 10 hours of use in a single charge, or 2x AA batteries for over 6 hours of use.
The sleek and portable handheld microphone houses a super cardioid condenser capsule and a mute switch, making it an incredible wireless alternative to the popular M2 microphone while continually delivering the sensitivity and versatility offered by condenser microphones.
