Rode Wireless GO II 2-Person Digital Compact Wireless Microphone System / Recorder (2.4GHz, Black)
Expanding on the original Wireless GO with upgrades that enable two-person shooting, onboard recording, a vastly extended range and flexible output options, the Black Rode Wireless Go II system enables mobile videographers, vloggers and journalists to confidently and quickly incorporate audio Wireless in your setup regardless of your experience level or the device you're recording on.
With 2.4 GHz Series IV secure digital transmission, easy operation, and built-in microphones (lavalier microphones available separately), the system is ready to go at the push of a button; You can focus on getting the shot knowing that Wireless GO II delivers quality audio up to 200 meters away. There are no touchy menus or dials, just a simple on-and-go feature and a bright, informative LCD that shows you what you need to see. When you're ready for more, use the Rode companion app to access a powerful set of features and extended customization of settings.
The transmitters can capture uncompressed audio with a maximum resolution of 24-bit / 48 kHz. With Rode's companion application, you can export files with the same recording resolution or other settings such as 32-bit floating / 48kHz, which only offers compatibility with DAWs and other programs that support 32-bit floating. Transmitters do not record in 32-bit float.
Version II updates
Whereas the original Wireless GO employed a single channel, Version II is a two-channel system, capable of handling two transmitters at the same time for simple two-person shots with low latency (3.5 to 4 ms).
Use the Rode Central companion app for Mac / Windows (iOS / Android apps coming soon) to unlock powerful features and device customization: built-in streamer recording, dual-mono configurable backup track recording, file playback and export, and plus.
Through the app, each streamer provides a built-in audio recorder that offers up to seven hours of uncompressed recording (24-bit / 48 kHz WAV) or 24 hours of compressed recording, perfect for worry-free backup recording or one way quick and easy to capture. sound of your subjects. Export files in various formats, such as MP3 or WAV (16, 24 or 32 bit floating) with date and time stamp information, as well as automatic bookmarks anywhere the transceiver link has been broken.
Since the Wireless GO II can handle two transmitters at once, it features the ability to switch between stereo or dual-mono output modes. This allows each transmitter, and therefore each subject, to be recorded on a separate channel. Alternatively, the signal from both transmitters can be mixed and recorded identically on the left and right channels. Use the app to enable backup track recording (-20 dB on the right channel).
In addition to the traditional 3.5mm TRS analog output, the Wireless GO II receiver has a USB Type-C digital audio output to function as a 24-bit / 48kHz audio interface. This can be connected to a computer with the supplied USB Type-C to USB Type-A cable, to the Lightning port of an iOS mobile device via the Rode SC15 cable, or to the USB Type-C port of a laptop, iPad Pro , or Android mobile device with Rode SC16 cable (SC15 and SC16 cables available separately).
New Series IV technology extends the Wireless GO II's line-of-sight operating range to approximately 656 'compared to the maximum 230' range of the original Wireless GO. It also offers higher signal strength in crowded wireless environments. Additionally, the system is designed to run both transmitters without affecting range performance.
Out of the box, on the set
Designed with astonishing simplicity and efficiency in mind, the Rode Wireless GO II offers instant, out-of-the-box functionality for your next news session, video project, or interview. Power on, let the receiver and transmitters pair automatically, and then GO!
Mobile journalists, videographers, and vloggers will appreciate the Wireless GO II's pocket and purse portability. With the transmitters and receiver each weighing just over an ounce and measuring roughly 1.7 x 1.8 x 0.7 inches, your subjects and camera operator will forget they're even there.
Attach each miniature transmitter to clothing, put it on a belt or slip it into a pocket; use it as a lavalier microphone (no need for a separate microphone), or use it as a transmitter
traditional body with an external lav mic like the Rode Lavalier GO (available separately).
Thanks to the receiver's tiny form factor and integrated clip, it provides the flexibility to easily mount to a camera, sound bag, or mobile device. Its bright, high-contrast display shows receiver and transmitter battery status, audio level, signal strength, and more.
True wireless microphone ready to run and shoot
Equipped with a high-caliber pre-polarized omni-directional lavalier built into the compact transmitter housing, the Wireless GO II delivers quality audio without requiring a separate microphone (external lavalier microphones optional).
The omni-directional polar pattern of the internal capsule ensures reliable audio pickup, even if the microphone location is not ideal; Your subject's voice will be captured with clarity, intelligibility, and consistency.
Grab a mic and go
Already have a top-of-the-line external bathroom? The transmitter is packaged in a plug-powered 3.5mm TRS input, so you can connect most lavalier microphones equipped with a non-blocking 3.5mm TRS mini plug (such as Rode's Lavalier GO, available separately) and still enjoy the convenience of the Wireless GO II.
The external 3.5mm TRS microphone input passes wideband audio to the internal microphone preamp, requiring no manipulation of settings or parameters.
Sonic solid and safe
Like Rode's popular RODELink wireless systems, the Wireless GO II system uses the 2.4 GHz frequency band to take you away from the congested and confusing domain of UHF. Forget searching channels and squelching for a strong signal; Wireless GO II just works!
Courtesy of Rode's optimized transmission algorithm, Wireless GO II gives you a line-of-sight range of up to 656 feet and strengthens signal reliability to mitigate dropouts in crowded short-range environments such as retail stores, shopping malls, offices. . buildings and hotels.
Rode's new 2.4 GHz Series IV digital transmission incorporates 128-bit encryption for security, stability, and hassle-free operation while avoiding the frustration of dealing with licenses and frequency mandates. Go anywhere in the world with Wireless GO II; automatically gives you a strong signal no matter the setting.
Note: For optimal performance of this 2.4 GHz system, users are encouraged to maintain as direct a line of sight as possible between the transmitter and receiver. Wireless GO II is not backward compatible with the original Wireless GO system.
The receiver's 3.5mm TRS output sends a mic-level signal, making it compatible with a variety of devices such as DSLRs and portable audio recorders.
A 3-stage level control (0, -12 or -24 dB) on the receiver allows simple and effective optimization of signal levels. Use the application to adjust the level in 3 dB increments from 0 to -30 dB.
