Wireless GO

Recommended Posts

Rode wireless go-ing to sell by the trailer load to the market of the up and coming video producers etc and maybe influence peoples expectations about how big a transmitter needs to be(?) The only other TX remotely similar in size are all the top of the range TX (give or take), of the all the UHF wireless manufacturers. Obviously these are far better systems (with all the added professional features and reliability) and scripted drama productions of any ambition should be paying the rental on however many are needed but it's not hard to imagine in the less well funded sectors it becoming *tricky to use anything but the smallest TX even if the larger (UHF) TX are more reliable than 2.4ghz stuff.

* eg we'll have to justify it because it's a long shot and out of range or the number of channels needed precludes the exclusive use a 2.4ghz system.

If your a good archer this is not an issue . Just say no to lower end jobs and let them enjoy the prosumer mistakes, then they will come back with the budget you want . 

 

Be the pro to set the pace .  Anxiety can wait.

I love the "worlds smallest beltpack for a RODE lavalier"  a bit misleading...   It may be the smallest for their product line, but not others..

 

The gigs I normally do need all that the better transmitters can put out...  I'll let other folks show up to jobs with these...

 

They may have their place... but not on my gigs...

This is a device that's going to be used by YouTubers who vlog about their daily mundane lives and whom wouldn't hire a sound mixer anyways so I'm not worried about it.

I want a set for the sake of problem solving, not used for anything critical but could make a handy tool to throw on slate to get the AC calling scene and take or for simple PL between mixer and boom or to throw on an iphone for those also-live-to-facebook gigs

I agree with Mr AFMY, I need everything that my fairly high-end wirelesses can put out in terms of range, sound quality, ruggedness and freedom from interference from the storm of RF that is a modern set.  Producers may not know about specific wirelesses but they do expect that you will bring the best available, not the cheapest available.

I can imagine to use them just for monitoring my lavs. I use the small Tascam DR-10C recorders instead of wireless systems (so I always have clean audio) and one disadvantage is that I don't monitor them. Putting a Rode Wireless Go on the output of the Recorder would enable me to hear at least possible rustling or wind noise. 

 

Greetings
