Sony Expands UWP-D Series With Two-Channel Slot-in Wireless Receiver and Bodypack Transmitter

sony-bp-gl95a-1115Sony is introducing a new two-channel slot-in receiver, URX-S03D, and a new bodypack transmitter, UTX-B03HR — both are designed for compatibility with Sony camcorders. The URX-S03D is the first two-channel portable receiver in Sony’s UWP-D series that fits in the slot of Sony camcorders utilizing a D-sub 15-pin interface for audio and power connections. The UTX-B03HR bodypack transmitter is matched perfectly with the URX-S03D and incorporates a reliable four-pin Hirose microphone connector.

This two-channel system can receive two different RF signals in one receiver unit via two receiving antennas and separate RF circuits for each channel. RF signals from the two antennas are compared and the stronger signal is automatically selected for output, allowing the URX-S03D to reduce possible interruptions in reception to a minimum. Sony’s Digital Audio Processing, which uses DSP (digital signal processing) for digital companding, further contributes to high quality sound and allows for backward compatibility with previous generations of Sony Wireless.

The URX-S03D fits in the slot of qualifying Sony XDCAM camcorders with two-channel direct digital audio connection. It can also be matched with the slot of an HDCAM camcorder providing two-channel mixed audio via a single channel audio connection. In addition, monitoring of the AF/RF status of the URX-S03D is provided via the viewfinder of supported Sony camcorders.

UTX-B03HR bodyback transmitter is equipped with a four-pin Hirose microphone connector designed to withstand the rigors of ENG shooting. A standard broadcast lavalier microphone such as the ECM-77BC can be used with the new transmitter connector.

Here are the specifications.
