RØDE’s heritage as an innovative microphone manufacturer and the popularity of its award-winning NTG series has culminated in the development of the new NTG-8 Broadcast-Grade Long Shotgun Microphone.
Being given its world debut at IBC 2011 with HHB Communications in Hall 8 (Stand 8.D56), the NTG-8 is a broadcast-quality, long shotgun microphone that exhibits incredible directionality across the entire frequency range and offers enhanced LF response, directivity and sensitivity. It has been optimised for recording high-quality audio for film, television, sports and outdoor broadcasting or any professional application where distance miking is required.
The RØDE NTG-8 embodies many of the features of the NTG-3, including low self-noise, natural sound without colouration both on and off axis, and RF bias technology to ensure that it is almost completely water resistant and suitable for outdoor environments.
Designed and manufactured in Sydney, Australia, the NTG-8 provides a super-cardioid polar pattern and a 40Hz-20kHz frequency response in a 559mm x 19mm body that weighs 345g. It requires 48V Phantom Power and features a 3 pin XLR balanced output, an improved dynamic range and a Max SPL of 127dB (A-weighted).
HHB’s Director of Sales Martin O’Donnell says, “The addition of the new NTG-8 bolsters our product portfolio for outside broadcast and location sound recording by enabling us to offer a premium, broadcast-grade long shotgun microphone with a diverse range of applications that is backed by RØDE’s engineering and innovative product design. Like all of RØDE’s products, the NTG-8 offers a robust feature set and performance for a price that its competitors will find difficult to match.”
The RØDE NTG-8 Long Shotgun Microphone is covered by RØDE’s industry leading 10 year warranty.
