Sony wireless microphone system targets news, video and post applications New "plug-on" transmitter converts wired microphones to wireless

May 4, 2022

by --

Sony of Canada Ltd., Canada�s leading supplier of electronic and computer products for consumers and business, today introduced the UWP-C3 wireless microphone package.

The latest addition to Sony's UWP Series microphone family, the UWP-C3's plug-on transmitter easily converts a wired microphone into a wireless mic via XLR connections and is designed for use with Sony's new F-112 dynamic microphone.

The wireless system is especially well suited to cost-effective news gathering applications.

�This new wireless microphone package provides a complete turnkey system at a practical price,� said Sebastian Scala, Marketing Manager, Professional Audio, Broadcast & Communication Solutions Group, Sony of Canada Ltd. �Outfitted with a newly developed plug-on microphone transmitter, a portable tuner and a full complement of required component accessories, the system is not only reliable and sonically pristine, but also ruggedly built, making it ideal for videographers, ENG teams and documentary makers.�

The UWP-C3 achieves stable transmission and reception by incorporating a UHF PLL (Phase Locked Loop) frequency synthesized system and dual-antenna inputs/reception circuits that automatically select the strongest available RF signal for output.

The synthesized wireless microphone system also features:

� Simultaneous Multi-channel Operation: Allows simultaneous operation of up to 16 wireless microphones. Optimum combinations of interference-free frequencies are stored in the tuner;
� Backlit LCD: Provides extensive information including operating channel number and MHz frequency, attenuator level, audio-input status, RF-output status, transmitter-battery status and accumulated operating time. Two AA-size batteries provide approximately six hours of continuous operation;
� Portable Tuner: Features angle-adjustable antennas to help eliminate signal dropout, also providing mounting position flexibility for camcorder use; and
� Pre-Programmed Operating Frequencies: Incorporates pre-programmed frequencies that meet the wireless-communication regulations of each country.

The UWP C3 Series UHF wireless microphone system utilizes three core technologies to supply stable transmission and reception:

� PLL Synthesized System: A stable carrier signal helps prevent interference with other frequency channels via a preferred channel selection option;
� Space Diversity Reception System: Achieves a stable reception through dual-antenna inputs/reception circuits and automatically selects the best RF signal for quality performance; and
� Tone Squelch Circuitry: Helps prevent potential interference from transmissions of other wireless devices. The UWP-C3 Series outputs the audio signal only when a 32-kHz pilot-tone is recognized.

The UWP-C3 wireless microphone system is planned to be available in September at a manufacturer�s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $895 for each system configuration.
