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.
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.
Rechargeable batteries
The UTX-M03 handheld microphone provides rechargeable battery operation is also available with Ni-MH batteries.
Robust metal body
The UTX-M03 handheld microphone is made of strong, durable metal. Metal construction supports reliable use in rough operating conditions.
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.
