Sony Electronics’ Pro Audio Division is previewing the next generation of DWX Digital Wireless in booth #848. Suited for theater, broadcast or other live applications, Sony’s 3rd generation DWX series delivers ultra-low audio latency of 1.2ms with extended bandwidth and high-density multi-channel operation.
A high dynamic range RF circuit and 4 diversity antenna configuration ensures reliable operation, and the system supports Dante, a digital audio over IP networking technology. The new DWX components include the smaller and lightweight DWT-B03R digital wireless bodypack transmitter, the DWR-R03D digital wireless rackmount receiver, the BC-DWX1 battery charger and the ECM-77LM miniature, omnidirectional electret condenser microphone.
Key features of the new products include:
The small, lightweight and sweat-proof bodypack transmitter is ideal for theatre, drama and movie production. It offers ultra-low audio latency of 1.2ms, with 148MHz wideband operation, and uses a rechargeable Li-ion battery for extended operation.
The 1U ultra-wideband 2-channel rack-mount receiver (244MHz) is equipped with Dante®, a digital audio over IP networking technology. Two Dante Ports provide network redundancy, and headphone monitoring with loop-thru capability. Additionally both Analog and AES/EBU outputs are provided as well as AES 256bit encryption. A high dynamic range RF circuit provides enhanced performance, and 4 diversity antenna operation ensures stable reception. The included Wireless Studio software is compatible with the DWR-R03D and BC-DWX1 and provides system control & monitoring of all vital functions while the front panel equipped with two OLED displays provides direct access to menus via simplified controls.
The battery charger for DWT-B03R and NP-BX1 is equipped with Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities. Users can monitor the charging status via PC software, and can also charge up to two bodypacks or two batteries at one time. The BC-DWX1 includes an interlocking mechanism which allows easy integration for storage and transportation.
The new addition ECM-77LM miniature, omnidirectional electret condenser microphone now uses the small 3-pin connector. It provides a wide frequency response, high sensitivity, and low-noise characteristics.
