Sony Sounds Untethered
New UWP-D wireless microphone series from Sony
Sony has launched the new URX-P41D two-channel portable receiver, supporting MI (Multi Interface) shoe with digital audio interfaces. The URX-P41D, comes with the same features included in the 4th generation UWP-D series, such as improved sound quality from digital audio processing, NFC Sync for an easy set-up between receiver and transmitter, and offers functions such as Auto Gain Mode and Output Level Control which makes the job of recording audio easier.
As part of the UWP-D Series, the URX-P41D will work with all UWP-D transmitters (backwards compatible with previous generations) and will be available as a stand-alone receiver, or as part of a new kit, the UWP-D27, which includes two UTX-B40 Bodypack Transmitters. The URX-P41D is geared towards XDCAM and Alpha lens users for broadcast and news productions, run and gun style interviews, and documentary and series productions.
