Røde has announced the all-new Streamer X. This is an all-in-one streaming control device. Estimated MSRP is $399.
The Røde Streamer X records at 4K30fps while streaming video without delay with 4K60fps HDR pass-through. It supports variable refresh rate (VRR) and high dynamic range (HDR) to display images clearly, making it ideal for game commentary and live distribution that require high image quality.
In addition, the low-noise, high-gain REVOLUTION preamplifier developed by Road provides clear audio, and the built-in DSP adds APHEX audio processing, making it easy to achieve a more complete distribution.
The audio input options are also substantial, and it is possible to expand the possibilities of content creation. In addition to connecting microphones (XLR), musical instruments (line), and headsets, you can also connect the main unit as a receiver to the transmitter of “Wireless Me” or “Wireless Go II” to input clear voice wirelessly.
In addition, if you enable the gain assist function equipped with “Wireless Me”, the input gain is automatically controlled, preventing sudden loud voice cracking and always delivering at an appropriate level that is easy to hear. You can switch the input of the microphone and adjust the level with the knob on the main unit. By using the virtual audio mixer software “UNIFY”, all audio input channels can be enabled and controlled.
The Røde Streamer X is a highly versatile device that can be used in a wide range of ways regardless of content content or setup. It is said that it can be used for a wide range of applications with simple operations, such as not only game play and streaming with clear and smooth images, but also high-quality streaming and business presentations using single-lens / mirrorless cameras.
Equipped with a 1/4 inch screw hole on the back of the main unit, it can be installed not only on a desktop but also on a clamp or tripod. It is compact enough to be carried anywhere, making it convenient for livestreaming and recording on the go.
Despite its compact size, it does not take up too much space on your desk, yet users can control all settings at their fingertips. The Røde Streamer X has dedicated knobs for mic and headphone levels, an audio/video mute switch, and four large, colorful SMART pads.
Up to 16 banks can be registered for each of the 4 SMART pads, allowing you to switch voice effects such as reverb, echo, pitch and robot voice on the fly, send MIDI messages to external software, and perform effects such as fade-in and fade-out. Mixer operation can also be set. It is also possible to play sound effects, BGM, samples and jingles.
