UWP-D Series is double award winner at IBC

After its successful debut at IBC 2014, Sony’s UWP-D wireless microphone family has been featured in the ‘Best of Show’ Award winners by leading European broadcast/media publications TVBEurope and Audio Media.

The ‘Best of Show’ Awards recognise outstanding products exhibited at the 2014 International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam. Winners were selected by panels of professional users and editors attending the show.

UWP-D Series wireless microphones team exceptionally reliable, stable signal transmission with the purity of Digital Sound Processing (DSP) for crystal-clear sound when you’re in the field. Quick and easy to set-up and adjust when you’re under pressure, UWP-D offers the extra attractions of long battery life in a tough, compact design that’s ideal for busy freelancers and solo camera operators.

Adding the SMAD-P3 shoe adaptor* allows audio signals to be transmitted directly from the URX-PO3 portable receiver to the camera with no XLR connecting cables. The adaptor connects the receiver securely to the Multi Interface (MI) terminal that features on several XDCAM camcorders, as well as Sony interchangeable lens cameras and pro-focused Handycam models.

As well as eliminating extra wires, the receiver draws power from the camera itself that also controls power ON/OFF. It’s a neat, integrated, highly practical audio solution for ENG, field production and DSLR-based film-makers alike.

* The SMAD-P3 MI shoe adaptor is compatible with PXW-X180/PXW-X160 portable XDCAM camcorders, α7/ α7R/ α7S/ α99 interchangeable lens digital cameras, Handycam NEX-VG900/NEX-VG30 camcorders and the Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 (as of July 2014).
