RODE X Streamer X Overview
The All-in-One Streaming Solution
Combining a professional audio interface and a video capture card in one ultracompact, intuitive package, the Streamer X from RODE X represents a new way to livestream incredible, broadcast-quality audio and video. Sporting a studio-grade audio input for mic- or line-level sources, a low-noise, high-gain Revolution preamp with selectable phantom power, and powerful onboard APHEX audio processing, the Streamer X makes it easy to deliver pristine audio quality to your streams, and the Streamer X even features integrated wireless-receiver technology for compatibility with any RODE Series IV wireless microphones and transmitters.
Of course, modern streamers and content creators need quality video to keep up with the competition as well, and that’s why the Streamer X also features HDMI I/O that supports up to 4K 30 fps and 2K 60 fps streaming, and up to 2K 120 fps and 4K 60 fps pass-through for exceptional video quality that will enhance any modern application from gaming, streaming, and podcasting to video content creation and corporate presentations. Two dedicated USB-C connections allow for dual-PC setups, and with the four customizable SMART pads, you cant trigger sounds, voice FX, and other types of engaging material on the fly. And if that’s not enough, you can expand your console’s functionality with full compatibility for all of RODE’s software solutions, such as UNIFY, RODE Central, and RODE Connect.
