Rugged Design, Enhanced Functionality, Superb Sound Quality
LAS VEGAS (NAB Booth # SU906) April 13, 2008 â€“ Sony is introducing five new system packages in its UWP series of UHF synthesized wireless microphones. The new systems are designed for stable audio reception and interference-free multi-channel operation in news-gathering, AV presentations, entertainment, live event, and corporate applications.
The new line-up includes the UWP-V1, UWP-V2, UWP-V6, UWP-X7, and UWP-X8 models.
â€œThese units increase the levels of stability, mobility, robustness, and operational convenience for the UWP series,â€? said Paul Foschino, senior manager for professional audio in Sony Electronicsâ€™ Broadcast and Production Systems Division. â€œVideographers can get up and running right out of the box, as each package includes both a transmitter and a receiver.â€?
All components of the new systems â€“ bodypack transmitter, handheld microphone, plug-on transmitter, portable receiver and tuner unit â€“ are housed in compact, light weight and extremely robust metal chassis, allowing them to withstand the often harsh operational environments encountered during field use.
The UWP-V1, UWP-V2, and UWP-V6 are designed for use with Sony professional camcorders, specifically the new XDCAM EXâ„¢ and HDVâ„¢ models for ENG and EFP applications. The UWP-X7 and UWP-X8 are ideal for PA applications, and include a transmitter and a tuner module that can be installed into the Sony SRP-X500P, SRP-X700P AV presentation mixer or MB-X6 tuner base unit.
Transmitter options include the UTX-B2 bodypack, the UTX-H2 handheld microphone, and the UTX-P1 plug-on transmitter. Receivers include the URX-P2 portable tuner and the URX-M2 tuner module.
The Sony UWP Series UHF synthesized wireless microphone packages are available in channel blocks 30/32 (566-590 MHz) or 42/44 (638-662 MHz). Each is planned to be available in June at the following suggested list prices:
