The new RODE NTG-1 is a lightweight condenser shotgun microphone, specifically
designed for professional applications within the film, video, television, voice-over and
The NTG-1 provides an electronically balanced output stage and operates on 48 V to
the P48 standard. The NTG-1 offers wide bandwidth and a controlled polar response
coupled with low noise SMT electronics. The NTG-1 is extremely lightweight making it
ideal for mounting directly to video cameras (with optional accessories) or a Boom pole.
The NTG-1 comes complete with mount and windshield. The supplied windscreen effectively
suppresses wind noise when recording outdoors in moderate conditions. Optional accessories
are available for more demanding applications.
Broadcast sound quality. Low noise circuitry. Condenser transducer. Rugged metal construction.
Low weight: 105 grams approx. . Low handling noise. Supplied with stand mount, zip pouch and
windshield. Designed & manufactured in Australia. Full 2 year guarantee.
The NTG-1 is designed to operate from standard P48 phantom power. The NTG-1 will
operate between 44 V to 52 V applied with positive polarity to pin 2 and pin 3 via the
output XLR connector.
Operation output impedance:
The NTG-1 will operate satisfactorily into a load impedance as low as 1 k§?. If a load below
this is used, the output signal level will be reduced. The NTG-1??s output is balanced between
pin 2 (hot), pin 3 (cold) and pin 1 is ground.
Acoustic principle: Line plus Gradient.
