The 638 to 698 MHz version of the Sony UWP-D12 Integrated Digital Wireless Handheld Microphone ENG System features all-metal construction, easy to read LCD displays, a wide switching RF bandwidth, USB power and charging, automatic channel scanning, infrared synchronisation between the transmitter and receiver, a true diversity receiver, a headphone output on the receiver, output gain control on the receiver for optimising input level to a camera, and digital companding circuitry to improve the transient response of received audio. The package is suitable for a wide range of wireless applications such as ENG, talk shows, lectures, and more.

The system is referred to as integrated digital because the transmitter and receiver utilise DSP for digital companding and expanding of the transmission signal. Performing the companding and expanding processes in the digital domain improves the accuracy and transient response of the received audio.

The camera-mountable receiver features true-diversity technology which stabilises reception and minimises RF interference by using dual antenna input/reception circuits and selecting the strongest incoming signal. The angle of the antennas is also adjustable to improve reception when the receiver is mounted on top of a camera or camcorder. The system utilises UHF Phase Locked Loop (PLL) synthesis to lock the phase of the transmission frequency between transmitter and receiver. The receiver can automatically search for an available transmission frequency and link the desired frequency to the transmitter via infrared connection.

A stereo mini-jack output with monitor volume control is featured and both stereo mini and stereo XLR cables are provided. The unit also includes a headphone monitor output for use with cameras and camcorders that don't have a monitor output. An LCD display provides channel and frequency information, battery life, RF-input level, audio-output status and accumulated operating time.

For power, the receiver operates on two AA batteries for up to 6 hours, or on 5 VDC of USB power over a USB micro B cable. The USB connection can also be used to recharge Ni-MH rechargeable batteries within the battery cartridge. The receiver's compact design and included shoe-mount adapter allows easy mounting to most camcorders and interchangeable lens system cameras.

The handheld microphone transmitter features a unidirectional capsule, a built-in windscreen, and a robust metal construction.

The capsule is removable and can be interchanged with over 40 compatible microphone capsules from various manufacturers, such as the industry standard Shure SM58. The transmitter can operate for up to 8 hours on two AA-size alkaline batteries, can be powered or recharged via USB micro B connections, and features a comprehensive LCD display.

The system comes with a screw adapter, a belt clip, a shoe-mount adapter, a 3-pin mini to mini stereo cable, and a 3-pin mini to XLR cable. Optional accessories such as a microphone holder, battery case, and soft case for the receiver are sold separately.

Key Features

Interchangeable Microphone Capsules
Enables use of Sony's DWX Series microphone capsules such as the F31, F32, or CU-C31 as well as over 40 capsules from other manufacturers such as the industry standard Shure SM58

Digital Companding
Utilises analogue-to-digital and digital-to-analogue convertor stages so that the transmission signal can be digitally companded by the transmitter and digitally expanded by the receiver for improved audio transient response

Automatic Channel Scanning
Scans for available transmission channels and then syncs the transmitter to the receiver via infrared

Frequency Coverage
Provides up to 60 MHz of transmission bandwidth

UWP Series / WL-800 Series Compatibility
Enables cross-compatibility between the UWP-D transmitter with a UWP Series or WL-800 Series receiver or UWP Series or WL-800 Series transmitter with a UWP-D receiver

Headphone Output
Enables direct monitoring of receiver via headphones, especially useful for cameras that lack a monitor output

USB Power Options
Supports USB powering and USB charging of internal Ni-MH rechargeable batteries placed in the battery cartridge

Output Level Control
Controls the receiver's output level with ±12 dB adjustments for optimising the input level into the camera

UHF Phase Locked Loop (PLL) Synthesised Frequencies
Provides stable transmission and reception by generating a transmission frequency and locking the phase of the transmission signal to the incoming signal of the receiver

True Diversity Reception
Utilises dual antenna reception circuits and selects the stronger incoming signal to reduce drop-outs

Tone Squelch Circuitry
Transmits a pilot-tone signal with the audio signal and only outputs the audio signal if the pilot tone is present to reduce RF interference from other sources

Simultaneous Multi-Channel Operation
Stores the most stable interference-free transmission frequencies to internal memory for rapid setup and switching between frequency groups

Selectable RF Output
The transmitter allows selection between 5mW output power and 30mW output. 5mW is suitable for indoor, simultaneous multi-channel operation while 30mW is intended for outdoor, long-range use

Visual Display
The receiver features a comprehensive LED display providing channel and frequency information, battery life, total usage time and more

Improved All-Metal Construction
The transmitter and receiver feature metal construction for durability
