Wireless Microphones
Since their first introduction in 1974, Sony has been continuously developing a
wide range of wireless microphone systems to offer superb audio performance,
highly stable transmission and flexible simultaneous multi-channel operation.
Nowadays, it can be clearly seen that the industry is migrating from Standard
Definition (SD) to High Definition (HD) for video production, as well as from
analogue to digital for sound production. This trend naturally boosts the need
for higher-quality digital technology in wireless microphone systems.
Professional Audio
Wireless Microphones
Digital Wireless Microphones Product Range
With the introduction of a new fully digital wireless
microphone system, Sony has made a breakthrough in
the history of wireless microphone technology. Comprising
of the DWT-B01 bodypack transmitter, DWR-S01D slot-in
type two-channel receiver and DWA-01D adapter, the
system provides excellent quality digital wireless audio
transmission, large-scale, multi-channel operation and
enhanced system flexibility – a perfect match for highquality ENG/EFP applications*1. Transmission of excellent
quality 24-bit/48kHz sampling digital audio signals is
realised on the DWT-B01 transmitter. The audio codec
used in the system was developed specifically for wireless
audio transmission, enabling the low-latency, secure and
reliable operation that is mandatory for quality-critical
applications.
In addition, the system allows for an increase of up to 60%*2
in the number of simultaneous digital wireless systems in
use compared to conventional analogue wireless systems,
which gives users enhanced system flexibility. Furthermore,
the system offers a metadata-handling capability that
provides highly innovative full-wireless remote operations
between the transmitter and receiver, dramatically
improving operational efficiency. With its excellent audio
quality, system flexibility and operational efficiency,
the Sony digital wireless microphone system opens up a
whole new world of professional audio applications.
*1 The digital wireless microphone system is not available in some countries.
*2 When operating on an 8MHz bandwidth TV channel in Europe.
System Features
Superb Quality Wireless Transmission
The digital wireless microphone system transmits highquality 24-bit/48kHz sampling digital audio signals in a
specific frequency bandwidth that meets the wireless
communication regulations of each country. Utilising
an original Sony codec, based on Sony’s many years of
experience in engineering audio products, the system
delivers a wide dynamic range of more than 106dB, a wide
frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz and an excellent
system latency of 3.6 ms.
Simultaneous Multi-channel Operation
The digital wireless microphone system allows for largescale multi-channel operations. Thanks to the newly
developed digital modulator, the system realises an
intermodulation-free, equally spaced channel allocation.
The digital wireless transmission technology used in this
system enables a significant increase in the number of
simultaneous digital wireless systems in comparison with
current analogue wireless systems. For example, up to 16
channels of simultaneous operation is possible in an 8MHz
bandwidth TV channel in Europe. This system also provides
the option of using existing WL-800 Series channel plans.
In this configuration, the digital wireless system reliably
operates alongside the WL-800 Series analogue wireless
systems, without concern for having analogue and digital
wireless systems interfering with each other.
Stable and Secure Transmission
Incorporating a newly developed digital modulator, the
digital wireless microphone system allows highly stable and
secure wireless transmission that is extremely tolerant to RF
interference. The system transmits digitally modulated and
encrypted data to minimise the risk of interception, providing
highly secure transmission. For secure and confidential
communication, the system provides two communication
modes: peer-to-peer mode and password mode.
24
In peer-to-peer mode, wireless communication between
a DWT-B01 transmitter and DWR-S01D receiver can be
established by exchanging an encryption key that is
generated by the transmitter. In password mode, multiple
transmitters and receivers can be configured by setting
all devices with the same user-designated password. In
addition, this mode supports broadcast communication,
which enables multiple receivers to receive audio signals
from one transmitter.
Pre-programmed Frequency Groups
To make it easy to choose the correct frequencies for
simultaneous multi-channel operation, the optimum
intermodulation-free frequencies are stored on each
DWR-S01D receiver. These frequencies – all of which have
been calculated and tested – are arranged in groups,
with each group pre-programmed to allow interferencefree operation. The digital wireless microphone system
operates within the following frequency ranges:
Frequency range

* The DWR-S01D receiver supports a 24MHz band RF carrier frequency range.
When using the DWR-S01D receiver in either the 798 to 822MHz (TV 62 to 64
channels) or 838 to 862MHz (TV 67 to 69 channels) frequency range, please

In addition to audio signals, a variety of information about
the DWT-B01 transmitter – such as audio input peak level,
remaining battery capacity, low-cut filter frequency and
attenuator level – can be wirelessly transmitted to the
DWR-S01 receiver as metadata. This allows users to monitor
the status of the transmitter from the DWR-S01D receiver,
offering high operational convenience.

wireless microphone system is one of the most distinctive
user features that digital transmission technology has
made possible.
A variety of DWT-B01 transmitter settings – such as power
on/sleep, attenuator level, low-cut filter frequency and
RF power output level – can be wirelessly controlled from
the DWR-S01D receiver. This is highly convenient because
setting changes can be made very easily even after the
transmitters are attached to an actor or reporter.
Easy-to-see, Full Dot-matrix OLED (Organic Light-Emitting
Diode) Display
The DWT-B01 transmitter and DWR-S01D receiver have
an easy-to-see OLED display, providing a variety of
information such as operating channel/frequency, AF
input level, RF output level and battery status. The quick
response of the OLED display enables real-time operating
conditions, such as the audio level-meter, to be displayed
clearly and accurately. In addition, the OLED provides a
high-level of visibility even in low-temperature or low-light
environments.
USB Interface
The DWT-B01 transmitter and DWR-S01D receiver come
equipped with a USB interface. This is used to connect
a USB keyboard, from which users can easily change a
variety of settings. In addition, by connecting the transmitter
and receiver directly to each other via the supplied USB cable,
the encryption keys required for confidential peer-topeer communication can be exchanged manually or
automatically.
Furthermore, when the DWR-S01 receiver is used with the
PDW-700 XDCAM HD422 camcorder, users can monitor the
status of the digital wireless microphone system through the
camcorder’s viewfinder. They can also wirelessly control
the settings of the DWT-B01 transmitter via the camcorder
menu. This wireless control makes use of 2.4GHz IEEE802.15.4
communication technology, which is commonly available
worldwide. Communicating via this wireless remote
technology in no way affects the audio or RF signals of
either the digital or analogue wireless microphone systems.
In addition, it is ideal for large-scale multi-channel
system management and is effective for low-power
consumption.

The DWT-B01/DWT-P01 transmitters cover an extremely
wide RF carrier frequency range; much wider than the
24MHz band of the analogue wireless microphone system.
The CE6267 models can cover a 48MHz band*1. This
remarkably wide coverage on a single model offers
cost-efficiency and operational convenience because it
allows one transmitter to be operated in many different
countries.
*1 The DWR-S01D receiver supports a 24MHz band RF carrier frequency
range. 798 to 822MHz (TV 62 to 64 channels) and 838 to 862MHz
(TV 67 to 69 channels)
Selectable RF Output Power (1/10/50 mW)
The DWT-B01/DWT-P01 transmitters provide a choice of
RF output powers. The 1 and 10 mW output is suitable
for multi-channel operations such as theatre and studio
productions, while the 50 mW output is intended for long
distance transmissions such as sports and news coverage.

Analogue Wireless Microphone Product Range
Since its introduction, the unique qualities of the Sony WL-800
Series UHF synthesised wireless microphone system have
been proven in many different applications. It has been
particularly successful in critical applications such as
broadcasting and production, where its low-noise, wide
audio dynamic range, stable RF transmission/reception
and high reliability have been vital factors.
Sony has continually enhanced its WL-800 Series to fulfil the
ever increasing needs for wireless operations.
Offering a broad range of choices, this family presents a
solution to virtually any wireless microphone application
from the very simple to the most sophisticated.
Such applications include ENG and EFP location,
conference and entertainment, TV studio production,
theatre and live performance to name just a few. A variety
of options are also made available so that systems are
established to suit different operational needs.
Sony Wireless Microphone Common Features
PLL Synthesised System
Phase Locked Loop (PLL) frequency synthesised systems
are employed both in transmitters and receivers, assuring
carrier stability and providing easy access to multiple
frequencies. These PLL controlled systems provide highly
stable, selectable frequencies to be generated in
increments of 125kHz.
Compander System for Wide Dynamic Range
and Low-noise
A compander (compressor/expander) system is included
for improved audio dynamic range, low-noise and interference. The time constants for attack and release times
are carefully chosen in the various transmitters to match the
application, ensuring minimised noise level while providing
smooth and superior audio quality.
Space Diversity Reception System
A space diversity reception system is used to eliminate
signal dropout. Dual antenna inputs and reception circuits
incorporated in the diversity system receive signals over
two different paths and select the stronger signal as the
output. This switching operation is undetectable on the
audio output of the receivers.
Pre-programmed Frequency Groups
Optimum combinations of calculated and practically
tested intermodulation-free frequencies are stored in each
receiver to make it easy to choose the correct frequencies
for
simultaneous
multi-channel
operation.
These
frequencies are arranged in groups, with each group preprogrammed to allow interference-free operation.
Advanced Filtering
The Sony wireless units all employ Helical, Ceramic and/
or SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave) filters as appropriate. This
offers stable reception and superb audio quality and
also enables the unique miniaturisation seen in most Sony
products.
Multiple Information on Easy-to-read LCD and LED
Most receivers and transmitters feature easy-to-read
LCD panel and LED indicators, which provide extensive
information on the operating conditions. Most receivers will
display the RF input level, audio output status, current channel
number/frequency and battery status of the transmitter.
Most transmitters do, in essence, have the same information
available in the receivers, such as audio input and
RF output status, current channel number/frequency, input
attenuation setting and accumulated battery operating
time.
Remote Battery Alarm on Receiver
For added assurance of continued operation, users can
monitor the battery reserves of handheld, body pack and
plug-on transmitters. Remaining battery life is indicated on
both the transmitter and receiver, with additional indication
approximate one hour*1 before the battery goes dead.
On the receiver, the battery indicator on the LCD and LED
displays also flash, helping to avoid the chance of battery
failure at a critical moment.
*1 This may vary depending on the operational environment.
Tone Squelch Circuitry
The wireless microphone transmitters also transmit a 32.768kHz
pilot-tone signal along with the audio signal. In the
receivers, a squelch circuit is present and the audio signal
is only output when the tone signal has been correctly
received. This squelch function is designed to virtually
prevent the output of unwanted signals or noise from other
signal transmissions in the air, as well as the RF noise and
popping noise that occur when the transmitter is powered
on or off.
32
Consistent RF Power Output
A DC-DC convert circuit built into the power supply section
of microphones/transmitters assures consistent output
power over the life of the batteries.
Channel Setting Back-up
Each unit has a convenient memory back-up for storing
operating frequencies. When the power switch is turned
on, the previous channel setting is automatically recalled
and displayed.

UWP Wireless Microphone Product Range
The Sony UWP Series UHF Wireless Microphone Package,
introduced in 2003, set a milestone in the history of wireless
microphone systems with its uncompromised easeof-operation. It brought a number of significant benefits
to wireless applications, including highly stable audio
reception by utilising a space diversity reception system
and proven interference-free multi-channel operation.
Since its introduction, the UWP Series has been widely
adopted around the world for a variety of applications
such as news gathering, interviewing, professional video
production, entertainment, live events and conferences to
Now, Sony has further evolved the UWP Series by
introducing five new packages – the UWP-V1, UWP-V2,
UWP-V6, UWP-X7 and UWP-X8 – for a much higher level of
stability, mobility, robustness and operational convenience.
Each package comes with both a transmitter and a
receiver, allowing you to get up and running straight from
the box.
name just a few.
Common Features
Compact, Lightweight and Robust Design
> Tone Squelch Circuitry
All components of the UWP Series – the bodypack
transmitter, handheld microphone, plug-on transmitter,
portable receiver and tuner module – utilise an extremely
robust metal chassis which is ideal for heavy-duty wireless
operations. The metal body also allows for an extremely
compact and lightweight design, providing the high level
of mobility required for ENG and EFP operations. What’s
more, the black body complements Sony’s professional
camcorders extremely well.
The UWP Series transmitters transmit a 32kHz pilot-tone
signal along with the audio signal. The tuner’s squelch
circuit recognises this tone signal and outputs the audio
signal only when this tone signal is received. This function
virtually prevents the output of unwanted signals and noise
from other signal transmissions in the air, as well as the RF
noise and popping noise that occur when the transmitter
is powered on or off.
Pre-programmed Operating Frequencies
Stable Transmission and Reception
The UWP Series Wireless Microphone Package uses three
core technologies to provide stable transmission and
reception:
> PLL Synthesised System
The UWP Series employs a UHF PLL (Phase Locked Loop)
frequency synthesised system, which provides a stable
carrier signal that helps to avoid interference with other
frequency channels and allows for easy access to multiple
frequencies. The PLL-controlled system provides highly
stable, user-selectable frequencies in increments of 125kHz.
Users can choose from 189 frequencies.
> Space Diversity Reception System
The transmitters and tuners included in the UWP
Series
incorporate
groups
of
intermodulationfree
pre-programmed
frequencies
that
have
been
carefully
calculated
and
practically
tested. By selecting from these pre-programmed
frequency groups, users can quickly and easily operate up
to 16 wireless microphones simultaneously.
Auto-channel Scanning Function
The URX-P2 portable receiver and URX-M2 tuner module
provide a convenient auto-channel scanning function that
allows for fast, easy and safe frequency channel changes.
These models automatically detect unoccupied channels,
allowing operators easily to select the most appropriate
channel to use.
Typically, wireless microphone transmission systems can be
subject to interruptions in reception (signal dropout), but
the UWP Series reduces this to a minimum. Utilising a space
diversity reception system, it achieves stable reception
by using dual-antenna inputs/reception circuits. These
receive signals over two different paths and automatically
select the stronger RF signal for output. The angle of
the antennas on the portable receiver can also be
adjusted, which helps to further eliminate signal dropout.

Mixers & AV Amplifiers
The challenges are similar, whether you’re overseeing live sound for a
television outside broadcast or making an album in your own private studio.
Mixing – the most involved and creatively demanding part of the audio
production process – demands a console with a host of interfacing, processing
and control options that never detract from the purity of the audio source.
The synthesis of audio with the visual image, multi-media embraces a world
of entertainment, business, educational, scientific and medical presentation
applications. In this section of the catalogue, we present Sony’s line-up of
mixers and A/V amplifiers which enable you to make the most effective use
of multi-media.

Mixers and AV Amplifiers
DMX-P01
Portable Portable Mixer
Effective audio quality is now more important than ever
for ENG and EFP applications because, even with highquality video, lacklustre audio performance will result in
a mediocre production.
The DMX-P01 Digital Portable Mixer is Sony’s answer
to these high-quality audio requirements. Not only does
the DMX-P01 offer outstanding audio quality, it is also
one of the most user-friendly mixers in the ENG and EFP
markets.
With full 24-bit processing and a sampling rate of either
48kHz or 96kHz, the DMX-P01 provides sound quality
Its front panel is human engineered to allow fast, easy and
accurate setting adjustments – essential when working
in the field. It also includes other useful features, such
as Panel-lock and Parameter-lock functions, selectable
meter scales, Camera-audio Return-level check, memory
function, digital cascade capability and digital outputs.
All of this functionality and versatility is packaged into one
sleek, compact and lightweight body that can be used
effortlessly in field productions. Make the DMX-P01 your first
step into the world of portable digital-audio mixing in the
field.
comparable to high-end production mixers.
Digital Benefits
Excellent Sound Quality/Full Digital Processing
Panel-lock and Parameter-lock Features
In order to provide outstanding sound quality for ENG
and EFP applications, the DMX-P01 offers full digital-audio
processing. Its 24-bit A/D and D/A converters provide a high
level of linearity for analogue inputs and outputs. Internally,
the unit utilises 32-bit digital processing for maximum
throughput. In addition, the DMX-P01 has a sampling rate
that is selectable from either 48kHz or 96kHz.
One major concern for audio engineers in the field is the
accidental bumping of controls, which can inadvertently
change the sound settings. The DMX-P01 safeguards
against this with its Panel-lock feature, which can be set
to secure all of the control settings, or selected individual
control settings. With the lock engaged, physical contact
with the controls will not alter their settings. In addition,
a Parameter-lock feature also avoids inadvertent parameter changes.
High-quality Digital Limiters/Compressors
By using digital limiters and compressors, the DMX-P01
can provide extremely high-quality sound in one small
package. Limiters are available at the input and both
limiters and compressors are available at the output for
maximum flexibility.
Full Parameter Controls from the Front Panel
The DMX-P01 puts all of its controls at your fingertips, with
a cleanly organised and logical layout on the unit’s front
panel. The DMX-P01 processes audio digitally, so parameters that are used less frequently are stored internally
and accessed only when needed. Using the front panel
controls and easy-to-read LCD allows full control of every
parameter without the need to remove the unit from its
audio-organiser case. The LCD panel is also equipped with
a backlight, so the unit can be used in low-light conditions
too.
58
Flexible Meter Scales
Because the DMX-P01 is a digital mixer, the meter
calibrations can be easily changed from one type to
another without the need to replace the entire meter.
Six easy-to-change meter scale sheets are supplied: VU,
PPM1 (BBC-type), PPM2 (DIN-type), PPM3 (NORDIC type),
PPM4 (IEC-type1) and dBFS. Simply insert the desired scale
sheet and select the appropriate meter type from the
set-up menu. The DMX-P01 will display the audio level
according to the scale selected.
Camera-audio Return-level Check
Digital Cascade
The DMX-P01 enables users to visually verify that the mixer’s
audio level matches the level recorded to the camcorder
tape. This is done using the Camera Return-level mode,
available in the set-up menu. Simply send a reference tone
signal to the camcorder and the level difference between
the mixer output and camcorder return signal will be
displayed. Then adjust the marker to the central position
and the level adjustment is complete.
For applications requiring additional inputs, DMX-P01
mixers can be cascaded using a digital connection
between mixers. The benefit of cascading mixers digitally
is that sound quality is not degraded, as it would be when
cascading analogue mixers.
Memory Function
The DMX-P01 processes audio digitally, so users can
effortlessly store and recall parameters from the set-up
menu. There are two memory functions: Power-on Memory
Recall and Scene Memory Recall.
Digital Output
The DMX-P01 is equipped with a digital output, which can
be used to send audio to digital peripheral equipment such
as DAT recorders. AES/EBU and S/PDIF (IEC 60958) coaxial
interfaces are available for master outputs.
Power-on Memory Recall - When the DMX-P01 is powered
on, the system is capable of recalling parameters in three
different ways: with the default factory settings, with the
same settings as the last time the unit was used, or with the
parameters of one specific scene memory.
Scene Memory Recall - This feature allows users to recall
up to ten different user-defined parameter settings or
the factory default settings. In situations where a single
unit is required to serve multiple users or multiple shooting
scenarios, these features can prove invaluable.

Advanced Audio Processing Functions – ‘Feedback
Reducer’ and ‘Automixer’
Two special audio processing tools are included to allow
‘professional quality audio’ processing at the touch of a
button. The ‘Feedback Reducer’ works by analysing and
‘nulling out’ potential annoying feedback. The ‘Automix’
function allows the SRP-X700P to analyse, in real-time, the
incoming signals and make adjustments to maintain the
quality of the output.
Multiple Operating Modes and On-board Stereo Power
Amplifier
The SRP-X700P is equipped with a routing function which
routes the input signals to its 10 outputs (8 line and 2 REC
outputs). This routing function allows the SRP-X700P to
offer many different operating modes to support surround
sound matrix switching or ‘Zoned’ speaker configurations.
In addition, there is an on-board 150 W stereo power
amplifier that can be switched between high and low
impedance modes.

signal sound processing functions including Auto Gain
Control (AGC), equaliser, compressor and feedback
reducer, helping to bring professional sound quality
into multi-media presentations. Each microphone input
channel integrates a digital feedback reduction function.
At the touch of a button, the audio frequency in which howling
is likely to occur, is detected and suppressed, reducing
unwanted microphone feedback.* Consequently operators
can raise the amplifier’s volume without concern over
microphone howling. The SRP-X500P also incorporates
The SRP-X500P can accommodate two optional wireless
tuner units, selectable from the Sony UWP-X Series or the
WRU-806B, making it simple to establish a high-quality

Features and Benefits
Built-in Electret Condenser Microphones
High-quality Signal Processing
The PCM-D1’s electret condenser microphones have extraordinarily high-sensitivity and low-noise characteristics.
All microphone casing parts fit together nearly seamlessly
and are adjusted with 100-micron level precision. With a
frequency response of nearly 30kHz, the microphones
are positioned using an X-Y pattern and then angled
toward each other with the left and right diaphragms close
together, covering a wide sound range with reduced
phase shifts. The result is rich audio with a natural sounding
stereo image, good depth and perspective.
The PCM-D1 recorder offers comprehensive signal
processing features for location recording including a
unique limiter function, a 200Hz high pass filter and SBM
(Super Bit Mapping) noise shaping. The digital limiter uses
an independent audio buffer that contains audio 20dB
lower then the audio processed in the normal recording
signal path. With the PCM-D1 limiter enabled, when a loud
sound suddenly occurs during recording, the over level
part of the sound is automatically set within the range of
the maximum input level (from the alternative -20dB buffer)
in order to help prevent distortion.
Superb Audio Signal Path
The microphone amplifier provided for each channel is
the Analogue Devices, Inc. AD797, which boasts ultra-lownoise and distortion. A variable gain circuit is adopted for
amplitude control, which enhances the actual signal-tonoise ratio. The line amplifier provided for each channel
is the Analogue Devices AD8672. Analogue and digital
circuits are mounted on separate circuit boards and also
separately powered to help prevent interference between
circuit blocks. The analogue circuit achieves superb
linearity so that the recorded sound is output faithfully.
Outstanding Construction Quality
The circuitry of the PCM-D1 recorder is protected by a
body made of 1 mm thick, pure titanium and covered
with nitrate titanium, scratch-resistant coating – resulting
in a finished titanium surface approximately ten times
as hard as that of alumite-treated aluminum. In addition,
a distinctive arch-shaped polished stainless steel frame
is provided to protect the microphones from impact
damage. This rugged exterior protects the PCM-D1’s
circuits and microphones and enhances the high sonic
quality of the recorder.
While this limiter function won’t compensate for clipping
of audio that is suddenly in excess of 20dB, the sonic purity
of the recording is fully maintained without the need to
apply conventional limiter signal processing techniques.
With the High Pass Filter enabled, audio below 200Hz is
filtered out and not recorded. This function can be used
to reduce noise caused by external sources such as wind,
the flow of air-conditioning equipment, etc. With the SBM
function enabled (optionally used for 16-bit recording
modes), Super Bit Mapping significantly increases the
dynamic range acoustically by reducing noise that is
particularly easy to hear within the human audible band.
To improve the audio quality when converting 20-bit data
into 16-bit, the top bits of information within the lower data
(usually discarded when recording in 16-bit mode) are
integrated into the 16-bit data track by shifting audible
noise up into an inaudible higher frequency range.
Simple Uploading to Computer
The PCM-D1 recorder conforms to the USB 2.0 Mass Storage
Device standard. Because the recorder’s native recording
file format is .WAV, recordings can be rapidly uploaded to
a computer and used in conjunction with most common
audio production software.
