Top Four Reasons to Choose UWP-D Wireless Audio

As high-resolution content becomes the norm, video producers need to match beautiful pictures with sparkling sound to create an immersive experience for audiences. UWP-D Series lets you capture pristine audio – quickly, reliably and with no fuss. Here are the top four reasons why you should choose Sony UWP-D Wireless Audio Series.

Stable, reliable connection

Stable, reliable RF reception is assured by the receiver’s dual diversity tuner that always stays locked onto the strongest wireless signal. So you can be confident of clear, uninterrupted audio reception with no signal drop-outs.

Superb audio clarity

Conventional analog systems use companders for dynamic range, but despite advancements, sound quality and transient response issues have yet to be completely solved. UWP-D utilises Sony’s newly developed digital audio processing for digital companding, resulting in a high quality, accurate sound.

Effortless one-touch sync

Setting up UWP-D Series is fast, super-simple and secure. Just touch a button and the UWP-D Series receiver automatically scans for clear wireless channels. Then use one-touch NFC sync to securely pair receiver and transmitter – and you’re all ready to start capturing crisp, clear audio.

Wireless camera connection

Capturing crisp, sparkling wireless audio has never been easier. UWP-D Series receivers mount directly on Sony camcorders using SMAD-P5 MI Shoe that carries power as well as audio signals, with automatic power synchronisation between camera and receiver.

Fast and simple channel checking

Quick, reliable RF channel setting is a must for content creators. Unique to Sony, NFC SYNC takes the hassle out of frequency setting. Hold the NFC SYNC button for a few seconds and the receiver automatically scans the appropriate frequency. Touching the receiver to the transmitter effortlessly pairs them and locks into the desired channel.

Ergonomic design

The reduced size and weight of UWP-D series makes all the difference in applications where mobility matters. The UTX-B40 bodypack transmitter and UTX-P40 plug-on transmitter are around 20% smaller than their predecessors. The length of the URX-P40 receiver with the SMAD-P5 MI shoe adaptor has been drastically shortened for an easy fit with compact camcorders and interchangeable lens cameras.

Multi interface for direct connection

UWP-D Series receivers attach to compatible* camcorders and interchangeable lens cameras via the SMAD-P5 MI (Multi Interface) shoe adaptor. Audio signals are sent directly from the receiver to the camera with need for connecting wires. The receiver draws power directly from the camera that also controls receiver ON/OFF for simplified power management.

Using the SMAD-P5 supports the digital audio interface of the URX-P40, delivering high sound quality with low noise by direct digital audio recording. It also achieves advanced integration with the camcorders, showing audio information in the viewfinder for enhanced usability in the field.

*Please note the SMAD-P5 can only be used with URX-P40. SMAD-P3 can only be used with URX-P03 and SMAD-P3D can only be used with URX-P03D

External microphone input and 3-channel mixer

The URX-P41D 2-channel portable receiver features an external input for connection of an additional wired microphone. Ideal for on-camera interviews, the receiver’s integrated 3-channel audio mixer can assign output 1 or/and 2 freely when using two wireless microphones plus a wired mic.

True diversity reception

UWP-D features a true diversity system, using two antennas for highly stable reception. RF signals from both antennas are compared, and the stronger signal automatically selected.

Auto gain mode volume control

Ideal when you don’t know the level of the speaker’s voice, auto gain mode boosts volume while using a limiter to reduce the risk of distortion.

Volume boost for off-mic audio

Ideal for interviews, volume boost adds +15 dB gain, increasing sound levels when your subject is further away from the microphone.

*UTX-B40, UTX-P40, UTX-M40

Fast frequency switching

Channel memory function allows instant switching between previous and current channels – useful when you’re using one tuner with two transmitters.

* URX-P40

Variable muting

Pressing the mute button instantly supresses audio output from the tuner. This function sets whether the audio is muted for various operations of the MUTE button.

*UTX-B40, UTX-P40, UTX-M40

Compatible with UWP/WL-800

The UWP-D Series transmitter can be used with Sony’s UWP or WL-800 Series receivers. A UWP Series or WL-800 Series transmitter also can be used with a UWP-D receiver.

High visibility OLED display

The bright, responsive OLED (organic light emitting diode) display gives a clear view of real-time operating conditions.

USB power supply

Use UWP-D Series with a USB power bank for long-term operation or as an emergency power supply.

Backward compatibility with IR sync

The IR port on the URX-P41D allows users to select NFC or IR in SYNC MODE from the Utility menu. This allows owners of previous transmitter models (UTX-B03/UTX-M03/UTX-P03) to sync receivers and transmitters with IR.
