Rode Link Newsshooter Kit Digital Wireless System


Digital Wireless System for News Gathering and Reporting

RØDELink represents the next generation of digital wireless systems. Using a series II 2.4GHz digital transmission with 128-bit encryption, it is able to constantly monitor and hop between frequencies to maintain the strongest possible signal level at a range of up to 100 metres* (over 100 yards).

The RØDELink Newsshooter Kit provides everything you need to start shooting video wirelessly with XLR microphones, including a camera-mounted receiver and an XLR transmitter. The receiver (RX-CAM) features an OLED display with information on level, battery status (receiver and transmitter), mute and channel selection.

The unit can be mounted on a standard camera shoe mount, 3/8" thread or belt-clip, and for added versatility the shoe mount can be located in one of two positions. The transmitter (TX-XLR) easily connects to handheld presentation microphones as well as shotgun microphones, with a 3.5mm input and headphone output.

FAQ's

How do I register for the RØDE extended warranty?


Registration for the extended warranty can be made by completing our online registration form.

Once registered you warranty will be extended to either 10 years, 5 years capped or lifetime, depending on your product.

What is the procedure for returning a faulty product?

Please view our FAQ to try and troubleshoot the issue. If you believe the microphone is at fault please contact our distributor in your country of residence for the correct procedure for returning your product. To find your nearest distributor please use our technical support finder here.

DO NOT send any product back to RØDE without first obtaining a unique RMA number from us.

Is my microphone covered by a service warranty?

RØDE microphones come with a 1 year manufacturers warranty, this can be upgraded to one of our free extended warranties by the registration of the microphone on our website. Please register your microphone using the WARRANTY tab above.

Our warranty covers faulty workmanship and faulty components. RØDE may either repair or replace the product at their sole discretion. The product must be returned to the service centre in the country that the product was purchased for service and repair.

Please note: the warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, nor the use of the product in heavily corrosive, polluted or extremely humid environments.

I want to buy a RØDE mic from overseas. Will the warranty be valid?

The warranty is only valid in the country of purchase so in the unlikely event that the mic were to fail it would need to be returned to the country of purchase for repair.

Alternatively, the mic can be sent to a local distributor but they may (at their discression) charge an admin fee for repairing a product that was not bought locally. As we offer a 10 year warranty this is always worth considering when adding up the initial cost of the mic.

 

Can I still get support for my legacy/discontinued product?

Yes, at RØDE we support our products for as long as possible, many years into their retirement. We understand that you will often have a "go to" mic that you simply cannot work without and we will do everything we can to assist with the repairs of these legacy products.

Spare parts are usually available so please contact your local service agent for assistance with these repairs.


What information should I include with a service/repair request?

The best way to request a service is to register your microphone for warranty and then request a service via the 'My Mics' page.

  1. Product range
  2. Serial number 
  3. Basic fault description
  4. Your return address

Will a locking 3.5mm to XLR cable (more specifically the one found in Sennheiser's G3 Wireless Lav System) work to connect the receiver to a recorder? (I'm looking to hook it up to a Zoom F4) Thank you! 1 Answer

This should work, the cable is originally designed to suit Sennheisers wireless system.  In some cases, we do see compatibility issues arise due to specific fitment / product tuning.  There is also an alternative Ambient Recording offering the same fitments.
