Light and compact

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.


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.

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

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.

48V power supply

Use the UTX-P40 plug-on transmitter with dynamic and condenser microphones requiring a DC 48V power supply.

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
