Sony Announces UWP-D Series of Professional Wireless Microphones
Sony has introduced its new UWP-D wireless microphone series for professional shooters.
The UWP-D series components are small and lightweight, making them suitable for a range of field production needs. Three packages of UWP-D series include:-
- UWP-D11: Bodypack Transmitter, Portable Receiver
- UWP-D12: Handheld Microphone, Portable Receiver
- UWP-D16: Plug-on Transmitter, Bodypack Transmitter, Portable Receiver
Utilizing a new hybrid digital processing technology to achieve high quality sound, the UWP-D comes with a display twice the size of previous UWP series, with a white background that makes information easier to see at a glance. Employing wide frequency coverage with a band of up to 72MHz, users can select from a broader range of operating frequencies.
An Automatic Channel Setting mode lets users perform channel scan and channel setting functions easily. The Clear Channel Scan function detects unused channels and IR Sync enables easy channel setting by sending information from the receiver to the transmitter by infrared communication. The series’ receiver is equipped with an output level control, so even if the camcorder or camera does not have input level control, users can easily adjust to optimize recording levels. The UWP-D transmitters and receivers are compatible with Sony’s WL-800 series and UWP series.
The UWP-D series’ components have a USB terminal* for connection to USB external portable power sources. Users can also use nickel metal hydride rechargeable batteries.
The new UWP-D series will be available in APAC from April 2014.
