New York, NY (October 9, 2019)—Sony’s new UWP-D21 wireless microphones are now available, with other recently announced models, the UWP-D22 and UWP-D26, expected to ship in December.
The UWP-D series wireless systems offer support for Multi-Interface Shoe (MI shoe) and a new Digital Audio Interface. The UWP-D series enables direct digital audio interface and skips the D/A and A/D process in combination with a new SMAD-P5 MI shoe adaptor and compatible camcorders including Sony’s PXW-Z280 and PXW-Z190 XDCAM models, using firmware version 3.0, as well as the α7R IV (ILCE-7RM4) 35mm full-frame camera.
Utilizing the SMAD-P5 MI shoe, audio signals are transmitted from the wireless receiver to a connected camera without a cable connection. It shares audio information such as RF level meter, audio mute status and low battery alerts for the transmitters, and displays them on the viewfinder.
The new “NFC SYNC” feature is designed for frequency setting. By holding the NFC SYNC button on the receiver for a few seconds, it automatically scans for the appropriate frequency, and allows this channel to be sent to the transmitter via ‘Near Field Communication’ (NFC).
The wireless systems’ reduced size and weight enable the mobility required for a wide range of applications, including news, remote, documentary, sports and wedding production.
