For customers in North America
The UWP-D12/30 and UWP-D12/42 models operates in portions of the 617-652 MHz or 663-698 MHz frequencies. As of 2017, these frequencies are being transitioned by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to the 600 MHz service to meet increasing demand for wireless broadband services. Users of these models must cease operating on these frequencies no later than July 13, 2020. In addition, users may be required to cease operations before that date if their operations could cause harmful interference to a 600 MHz service licensee's wireless operations on these frequencies. For more information, contact the FCC.

For customers in Canada, please consult ISED’s Spectrum Advisory Bulletin for recent information related to the 600 MHz band transition.

Features

UWP-D digital audio processing for high quality sound
The UWP-D Series wireless microphone systems uses Sony Digital Audio Processing to improve sound quality and transient response performance compared to conventional analogue wireless systems. It provides superb transient response performance. Analogue companding systems cannot accurately reproduce sounds such as a bell, tee shot or handclap, but Sony Digital Audio Processing reproduces them faithfully.
Large display and small size receiver
The URX-P03 portable receiver is designed to fit even small camcorders or DSLR cameras, with dimensions of 63mm x 82mm x 23.8mm (W x H x D) and a weight of approx. 176 g (including batteries). The transmitters and receivers also feature a bright 11.5mm x 27.8mm display, significantly larger than previous UWP models to make them easily readable in all situations.
Fast and easy channel scan
With its Clear Channel Scan, Active Channel Scan function and IR Sync features, the system detects unoccupied channels and selects the most appropriate channel automatically, for fast and easy system setup.
Automatic channel setting mode
The Auto Set channel mode allows the user to find and set available frequencies to use within the operating frequencies of the system. The receiver will automatically set the transmitter channel using the IR Sync feature.
Wide frequency coverage
The extra wide switching bandwidth covers a wide area, with a wide choice of channels available across multiple models - please refer to product specifications for more information.
True Diversity reception system
The UWP-D system achieves exceptionally stable audio signal being delivered from two independent receiver sections within the unit. Optimum signal quality is delivered by the two receivers sections and a comparison circuit constantly pulls the one with the best signal to give dropout free transmission.
Compatibility with Sony 800 and UWP Series analogue audio receivers
The UWP-D Series transmitters and receivers are also compatible with Sony’s WL-800 Series, UWP Series and Freedom Series, allowing users to switch between different companding modes.
Headphone output for monitoring
The UWP-D system provides its own headphone output socket, which is particularly useful when working with a camera that does not have a headphone output.
Robust metal body
The UTX-M03 handheld uni-directional microphone transmitter and URX-P03 portable receiver are made of strong, durable metal. Metal construction supports reliable use in rough operating conditions.
Rechargeable batteries
Rechargeable battery operation is available with Ni-MH batteries.
Variable output level on portable receiver
The system provides variable output level control of ±12dB, for use with the various input levels of camcorders and DSLR cameras.
Complete package with accessories
The UWP-D12 package includes the UTX-M03 handheld uni-directional microphone transmitter and URX-P03 portable receiver, as well as: microphone holder (1), belt clip (2), shoe-mount adapter (1), 3-pole locking mini plug/XLR-3-12C (male) (1), 3-pole locking mini plug/stereo mini plug (1), CD-ROM (1) (including operating Instructions and wireless microphone frequency list).
