RODE Microphones has announced four new accessories for their Wireless GO and VideoMic NTG. New kit includes the RODE DCS-1 Dual Cold Shoe, SC-11 Y-Splitter cable, SC-10 TRRS cable, and SC-16 USB-C cable.

DCS-1 Dual Cold Shoe Mount 

Starting off the list is the RODE DCS-1 Dual Cold Shoe mount designed to allow video creators to mount two microphones or cold shoe accessories onto a camera with a single cold shoe/hot shoe mount. 

In addition, the DCS-1 is made out of lightweight aluminium, however it retains a sturdy and discreet build. Furthermore, the Rode DCS-1 is compatible with all RODE products with a cold shoe adaptor, while offering handy cable management slots for cables​.

RODE SC11 Y-Splitter Cable

A new companion piece to the DCS-1 is the RODE SC-11 high-quality TRS Y-splitter cable designed to allow you to connect two mono 3.5mm outputs to a single stereo 3.5mm input.

Needless to say this is fantastic solution for situations where you need to connect two microphones to a single hybrid mirrorless camera. As in the case of, for example, dual Wireless GO receivers, or a wireless receiver and a RODE VideoMic

Both the DCS-1 Dual Cold Shoe and SC-11 provide the perfect solution for plugging two microphones into a single recording device. Thus, they eliminate bulk and cumbersome cable management from your rig.

Basically this is the same cable that comes with the RODE VideoMic NTG,  however, not it is available for purchase separately.

Furthermore, the RODE SC-10 is a high-quality 3.5mm TRRS to TRRS cable designed to connect on-camera microphones to your mirrorless/DSLR camera or smartphone. Moreover, it comes with a flexible cable segment for optimal shock mount performance, coupled to a reinforced cable segment for routing around the camera. 

RODE SC-16 USB-C to USB-C Cable

Rounding off the new announcements is the RODE SC-16. It is a high-quality USB-C to USB-C cable designed to connect RODE microphones with a USB-C output to USB-C devices such as smart phones and tablets.

Furthermore, the SC-16 has an in-built cable grip that is compatible with the VideoMic NTG shock mount cable management system, making it perfect for connecting the VideoMic NTG for example.
