Røde Unlocks Complete iOS Compatibility For VideoMic NTG With Release Of SC15 USB C to Lightning Accessory Cable
RØDE Microphones announces a major update to the ground-breaking VideoMic NTG. The VideoMic NTG is now officially MFi-certified, unlocking complete compatibility with Lightning-equipped iOS devices, including iPhone, iPad and iPod. This coincides with the release of a new RØDE Lightning Accessory Cable, the SC15 – a high-quality USB-C to Lightning cable that’s perfect for connecting the VideoMic NTG to Apple mobile devices.
With an innovative acoustic serving up serious audio quality and an expansive feature set unlike anything else on the market, the VideoMic NTG redefined on-camera audio. It has since been adopted by many filmmakers, vloggers and content creators.
One of the most ingenious features of the VideoMic NTG is the USB-C audio output, which allows it to be plugged into a computer, tablet or smartphone and used as a full-featured USB microphone.
Previously, the VideoMic NTG was only compatible with Lightning-equipped iOS devices using the 3.5mm output. Now, creators can plug the VideoMic NTG into their iPhone, iPad or iPod via USB with the RØDE SC15, unleashing the full potential of the mic, including:
- Headphone monitoring with complete volume control using the variable output knob
- Two-way audio transmission for making video calls
- Access to the safety channel, which creates a second output at -20dB in case the main channel distorts
- 24-bit/48kHz digital audio conversion
The SC15 has been designed specifically for connecting the VideoMic NTG to Apple mobile devices with a Lightning port. At 30cm long, it’s the perfect length for use in a compact mobile recording rig, and even features a junction box that slots neatly into the VideoMic NTG shock mount cable management system.
