Rode RODELINK NEWSSHOOTER KIT overview

  • 1Description

The RODELink Newsshooter Kit from RODE is a wireless system for ENG (Electronic News Gathering) using series II 2.4 GHz digital transmission and 128-bit encryption. The system is able to constantly monitor and hop between frequencies to maintain the strongest possible signal level at a range of up to 328'. Both units are battery powered and can run for up to seven hours. 

The receiver (RX-CAM) features an OLED display with information on level, battery status, mute, and channel selection. Underneath the OLED display, you'll find a pad that can attenuate signals between 0 and -20 dB. The receiver can be mounted on a standard camera shoe-mount with a 3/8" thread or a belt-clip. Through its on-board, locking 3.5mm dual-mono jack, you can monitor and/or record audio signal.

In addition to boasting its own OLED panel for monitoring battery and output level, the transmitter (TX-XLR) easily connects to XLR handheld presentation microphones as well as 3.5mm shotgun microphones and powered lavaliers. The transmitter provides 48V phantom power through its XLR input and plug-in power through the 3.5mm TRS input. If you're on the transmitting end of the signal, you can monitor the audio feed through its 3.5mm headphone jack.

Please note, however, that you cannot operate two microphones at the same time. 

With all the above features, the RODELink Newsshooter Kit provides everything you need to start shooting video wirelessly with microphones boasting XLR or 3.5mm connections, be they a dynamic handheld capsule, powered shotgun mic, or compatible lavalier. 

The receiver can interface with up to eight different TX-XLR transmitters, and you can use the channel switcher to select between each individual transmitter; please note, however, that you can only receive audio actively from one transmitter at a time

    Rode RODELINK NEWSSHOOTER KIT reviews

    RODELink Newsshooter Kit Digital Wireless System is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For music recordings I purchased two sets of this wireless kit to test if they can be used for live music recordings. Initial tests by recording a piano at a recording studio and a jazz octet at small hall are promising. - The transmitter supplies phantom power. Any condenser microphones can be used. - Gains are set manually. No auto gain adjustment is involved. The system gain is 0dB when gains of both transmitter and receiver are set at 0dB. Thus the recorder gain setting can be identical to the settings of wired microphones. This is independent of the range. - recordings of side by side microphones with wireless and wired connections are compared. They are not distinguishable as long as the recordings are played back by B&W 800D speakers at the original instrument sound level. - noise level of distant microphone recordings has not been tested yet. - rechargeable batteries on the transmitter units last longer than tested 2 hours. - Rode representative indicated the range is reduced when multiple sets are operated at the same time. Two set operations at 60' distance indicated no disruption of connection. - Pairing can be made easily by putting transmitter near the receiver. Two more sets will be purchased and will be used for live recordings, where the cables on the stages are nuisance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Versatile Excellent product so far. Easy and quick to set up and adjust for whatever situation I need it for. I've only owned this for a week but it has quickly and easily adapted itself to be used as a wireless lav, a wireless handheld, a wireless boom, and a wireless feed from a mixer into my camera. Which is exactly why I waited to buy this version instead of the original (which only acts as a lav) well worth the wait and definitely met my expectations. I also didnt even plan to use it for all of these application but after realizing I could I immediately started using this system to make my life easier and wireless. A great jack of all trades wireless microphone solution with lots of possible uses. Build quality is very good and it has several options on how to power and mount them. So far, I've only used AA batteries to power the tx and rx but battery life has been very good even with phantom power. (I dont want to give a number because I cannot give an accurate number) Only change I would make would be to make the tx a bit smaller (not that its that big) and the xlr connector is a bit difficult to remove from some things but that might be my fault somehow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I've only used it on one shoot so far but it works as well as Rode's other wireless offerings, which is to say it is fantastic! For my purposes, I plugged the transmitter into a house mixer board to record all the audio being broadcast at a live show. I was then set up approximately 40 feet away with the receiver plugged directly into my camera. Everything came through crystal clear and even though I had it broadcasting for just over 90 minutes, it still showed a full battery. Rodelink gear is legit! I have two lavs and now this handheld kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy setup You know, I was being very lazy and ended up buying this the very last minute, a week before a shoot we had scheduled, and didn't want to rent one anymore. I got it just the day before the day we needed it, and all I did was to test it on with batteries. Basically, all I did was to test the batteries I had were good to go. I didn't bother to read the manual, or anything whatsoever, went to the shoot and managed to put it together, sync it and get it going with proper decibels within 5 minutes before we started. THIS IS VERY VERY EASY TO SETUP! Audio is crisp and clear and I am very satisfied with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent - Terrible User Manual The Rode TX-XLR system is the best sounding swireless system I have ever used. I have used the receivers on Video Cams and they are awesome also. I used this as a DJ wireless mic and it sounded better than my wired mic! Only issue the set up, sync, and understanding how to set channels and options is close to guess work as there is no detailed users manual. I had about an hour of trial n error and some great support from RODE Tech's...when I finally got it to sync... I now plan to buy two more soon... Battery Life was 7 hrs, and still showed full charge..on AA. The mic fell off the transmitter once (used share 57) but I probably did not have the tightening screw tightened. This sounds so good and works in cluttered environments! You will be very happy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid piece of equpment I'm a user of Rode's RodeLink Wireless Filmmaker Kit, and have really liked the system. Now, with this, I'm able to pull off two wireless lav mics on the Filmmaker Kit, and a wireless shotgun with this Newsshooter Kit. The XLR unit is incredibly well built. And the fact that you can use the AA battery sled, or Sony batteries is the icing on the cake. If you are on the fence on this, buy it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Easy set-up. I did have to pair the set when it arrived but it only took a few seconds. Works great. I am using it with a xlr Sure lav mic and it sounds great.  I only used it about 25 feet from the camera but no problems. Seems very sturdy and well built.
    Date published: 2018-11-12
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best system I've found for a budget wireless boom setup The system works as I expected it would. Fast and simple setup and high quality sound for the price. I paired it with my NTG-3 shotgun mic and it works and sounds great. Very good output and low noise. Having a headphone jack right on the transmitter was a must for me. With a headphone extension cable, my audio guy can monitor audio right from the unit and that was what sold me. I'm expecting this to get heavy use! A few things to be aware of (or cons, if you wish to call them that) -Transmitter was bigger heaver than I was expecting. Its a bit awkward looking on the end of a handheld mic I think. I'm using it mostly for a boom so no big deal. . . but adds more weight! -48v phantom power drains AA batteries very quickly. . . I haven't timed it but seems much faster than the stated 2.5hrs if I remember reading correctly. If you are using phantom power, get NP style batteries! -The audio person has no way of adjusting his or her volume on the fly. The headphone volume control is in the menu of the transmitter (which is also a bit awkward to navigate) so adjusting the monitor headphone level is impossible midshoot without bringing the mic back in, going in to the menu and readjusting. If you are shooting in run-and-gun environments where noise levels vary, it would be worth getting some kind of volume control on your headphones or extension cable so your audio guy can adjust their own level on the fly. -like the rest of the filmmaker kit products from Rode, you find plastic mid-level build quality sub par with higher quality systems . . . but the performance and features can't be beat for the price!
