Sony UWP-D27 2-Person Camera-Mount Wireless Omni Lavalier Microphone System (UC14: 470 to 542 MHz)
Made with simplicity in mind for DIY cameramen, videographers, vloggers, and journalists working in the field without a crew, the 4th-generation Sony UWP-D27 is a dependable 2-channel, camera-mount wireless lavalier microphone system that delivers uncompromising audio quality, while still being easy to use and fast to set up with no menu diving. This compact system is packed with professional features including one-button NFC Automatic Channel-Setting mode and Auto-Gain functions, which handle time-consuming frequency setup and mic-level adjustments for you—so you’re ready to shoot two people talking simultaneously directly to your camera within seconds. It is ideal for documentaries, wedding videos, YouTube content, corporate spots, hands-free interviews, and more.
The UWP-D27 offers digital signal processing for pristine audio and analog UHF transmission with true-diversity reception for reliability, even under difficult shooting conditions. Rugged and lightweight, this system includes two bodypack transmitters, each with an ECM-V1BMP omnidirectional lavalier mic. It also comes with a low-profile camera-mount receiver designed for enhanced mobility with compact camcorders and smaller DSLR/mirrorless cameras. Sony shooters can take advantage of the SMAD-P5 digital MI Shoe adapter (available separately), which provides a direct, clean digital audio connection to select Sony cameras equipped with a digital Multi Interface Shoe. The UWP-D27 is backward-compatible with Sony WL-800, UWP Series, and third-generation UWP-D transmitters.
Press and hold the NFC/Sync button, and the dual receiver scans for the two cleanest RF channels (one for each transmitter). Simply hold the transmitters next to the receiver; it automatically syncs up and you’re good to go!Unlike purely digital systems, the UWP-D27 allows you to send a single mic to multiple cameras for broadcast applications. Fast NFC communication makes setup for multiple receivers a breeze.
Auto-Gain Mode to Prevent Mic Distortion
Auto-Gain mode saves you the time and aggravation of setting and managing the input level on the transmitter. It uses a limiter to help prevent distortion, great when the loudness of the presenter’s voice is unknown.
The +15 dB Gain Volume-Boost mode on the transmitters boosts the mic gain by 15 dB to compensate for situations when the mic is not close enough to the presenter’s mouth and the audio level is insufficient.
Manual input-level setting is also available.
High-Gain Mode for DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras
The High-Gain mode boosts the output level of the receiver, allowing you to turn down the input gain of your DSLR/mirrorless camera to achieve an even quieter signal.
External Mic Input for Additional Wired Microphone
There is an external mic-input connector on the receiver for plugging in an additional wired microphone. It allows for up to four-channel audio recording when using a stereo microphone.
Built-In 4-Channel Mixer
The receiver features a 4-channel mixer that enables you to control your mic levels (up to four) as well as assign output 1 or/and 2 as needed.
High-Visibility OLED Display for Indoor/Outdoor Use
Both transmitter and receiver feature an easy-to-read OLED display. The quick response of the display lets you see the operating conditions clearly and accurately in real time, even in bright sunlight.
Channel Memory Function for Fast Switching Between 4 Transmitters
The channel memory function lets you quickly switch between the groom’s lav mic and the wedding guest’s interview mic with the press of a button. It also allows for a fast change between up to four mics in corporate presentations or quickly swapping to back-up mics.
DSP Filter Removes Occupancy Sensors Artifacts
Two levels of DSP filtering help remove the artifacts caused by occupancy sensors used in modern “green” buildings to turn off lights when people leave a room.
