Sony unveils new UWP series UHF wireless mics

Sony has introduced 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 multichannel operation in newsgathering applications. The new lineup includes the UWP-V1, UWP-V2, UWP-V6, UWP-X7 and UWP-X8 models.

All components of the new systems — bodypack transmitter, handheld microphone, plug-on transmitter, portable receiver and tuner unit — are housed in compact, lightweight metal chasses, allowing them to withstand the harsh field environments.

The UWP-V1, UWP-V2 and UWP-V6 are designed for use with Sony professional camcorders, specifically the new XDCAM EX and HDV models for ENG and EFP. The UWP-X7 and UWP-X8 are well-suited for PA applications and include a transmitter and a tuner module that can be installed into the Sony SRP-X500P, SRP-X700P A/V mixer or MB-X6 tuner base unit.
