The Saramonic VmicLink5 RX5 + TX5 is a portable camera-mountable UHF wireless microphone system that delivers premium, broadcast-quality sound — and it does most of the work for you. The system works flawlessly right out of the box. Just plug in the mics, turn on the power and go. Scanning to find the best channel and syncing the transmitter and receiver all happens automatically, so you get more time to concentrate on your shoot. If it detects potential interference, it automatically switches the frequencies for you. All of these features not only make the VmicLink5 HiFi simple to use but create the easiest possible workflow.
The VmicLink5 utilizes the 5.8GHz frequency range, which is much higher and less congested than 2.4GHz, UHF, and VHF. No other commercially available wireless systems work in the 5.8GHz range. Each unit gets 6 hours of power from included lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, so you won't be wasting money on disposable batteries.
The included RX5 receiver weighs around half as much as most camera-mountable wireless receivers, so it won't weigh you down. The receiver also features individual level controls for each transmitter and a headphone output enables real-time audio monitoring if your camera lacks a headphone output. Locking 1/8” (3.5mm) mini-plug and XLR output cables are both included so you can use the VmicLink5 with DSLRs, mirrorless, cinema, camcorders, recorders and professional video cameras.
The transmitters feature a locking 1/8” (3.5mm) microphone input and a dedicated line input that makes wirelessly capturing audio from an external source a snap. The TX transmitter also features a combination Power/Mute button which can be “locked” when in use to prevent accidental muting or powering off.
A custom molded carry case is also included, providing an easy way to transport the VmicLink5 or to provide even more protection when in a bag. Additionally, optional output cables (sold separately) are available, giving you unrivaled connectivity. They make it possible to connect the receiver to smartphones, tablets, computers, GoPro cameras and more.
