Sony UWP-D11 Overview

  • 1Description

The 566 to 608 and 614 to 638 MHz version of the Sony UWP-D11 Integrated Digital Wireless Bodypack Lavalier Microphone System features all-metal construction, easy to read LCD displays, a wide switching RF bandwidth, USB power and charging, automatic channel scanning, infrared synchronization between transmitter and receiver, Mic/Line switchable input on the bodypack transmitter, a true diversity receiver, PLL-synthesized tuning, a headphone output on the receiver, output gain controls on the receiver for optimizing the input level into a camera, and digital companding circuitry. The package is suitable for a wide range of wireless applications such as ENG, documentary work, talk shows, conferences, and more.

The system is referred to as integrated digital because the transmitter and receiver utilize DSP for digital companding and expanding of the transmission signal. Performing the companding and expanding processes in the digital domain improves the accuracy and transient response of the received audio.

The camera-mountable receiver features true-diversity technology which stabilizes reception and minimizes RF interference by using dual antenna input/reception circuits and selecting the strongest incoming signal. The angle of the antennas is also adjustable to improve reception when the receiver is mounted on top of a camera or camcorder. The system utilizes UHF Phase Locked Loop (PLL) synthesis to lock the phase of the transmission frequency between transmitter and receiver. The receiver can automatically search for an available transmission frequency and link the desired frequency to the transmitter via infrared connection.

A stereo mini-jack output with monitor volume control is included and both stereo mini and stereo XLR cables are provided. The unit also includes a headphone monitor output for use with cameras and camcorders that don't have a monitor output. An LCD display provides channel and frequency information, battery life, RF-input level, audio-output status and accumulated operating time.

For power, the receiver operates on two AA batteries for up to 6 hours, or on 5 VDC of USB power over a USB micro B cable. The USB connection can also be used to recharge Ni-MH rechargeable batteries within the battery cartridge. The receiver's compact design and included shoe-mount adapter allows easy mounting to most camcorders and interchangeable lens system cameras.

The improved bodypack transmitter features a mic- and line-level switch for standard wired microphone or line-level sources. Selectable transmission output power provides a choice between 5mW output, which is suitable for simultaneous multi-channel operation, or 30mW output for long distance transmission.

The transmitter can operate for up to 8 hours on two AA-size alkaline batteries, be powered or recharged via USB micro B connection, and features a comprehensive LCD display.

The system comes with an omnidirectional lavalier microphone, a windscreen for the microphone, a microphone holder clip, two belt clips, a shoe-mount adapter, a 3-pin mini to mini stereo cable, and a 3-pin mini to XLR cable. Optional accessories such as a battery case and soft case for the receiver are sold separately.

Digital Companding
Utilizes analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converter stages so that the transmission signal can be digitally companded by the transmitter and digitally expanded by the receiver for improved audio transient response
Automatic Channel Scanning
Scans for available transmission channels and then syncs the transmitter to the receiver via infrared
Frequency Coverage
Provides up to 66 MHz of transmission bandwidth
UWP Series / WL-800 Series Compatibility

UHF Phase Locked Loop (PLL) Synthesized Frequencies
Provides stable transmission and reception by generating a transmission frequency and locking the phase of the transmission signal to the incoming signal of the receiver
True Diversity Reception
Utilizes dual antenna reception circuits and selects the stronger incoming signal to reduce drop-outs
Tone Squelch Circuitry
Transmits a pilot-tone signal with the audio signal and only outputs the audio signal if the pilot tone is present to reduce RF interference from other sources
Mic and Line Input Switch
Enables switching between microphone- and line-level inputs
Simultaneous Multi-Channel Operation
Stores the most stable interference-free transmission frequencies to internal memory for rapid setup and switching between frequency groups
Selectable RF Output
Allows selection between 5mW output power and 30mW output. 5mW is suitable for indoor, simultaneous multi-channel operation while 30mW is intended for outdoor, long-range use
Visual Display
Both transmitter and receiver feature a comprehensive LED display providing channel and frequency information, battery life, total usage time and more
Improved All-Metal Construction
The transmitters and receiver feature metal construction for durability

    Sony UWP-D11 Reviews

    UWP-D11 Integrated Digital Wireless Bodypack Lavalier Microphone System (UHF Channels 30/36 and 38/41: 566 to 608 and 614 to 638 MHz) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 67.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from From a good gear into trash can within a year 0-3 months: Great gear! it is affordably and provides way better range comparing to G3! 3-6 months: OEM connector breaks. 6-12 months: Emmmmm. Because at this moment, range starts to decrease and noise occasionally raise, specially outdoor shooting.  12-15 months: Finally antenna breaks. You will have pops and clicks whenever the actors move their body.  Fixing those things could cost a lot. Realizing Sony doesnt have their factory support in the US, those things need to be shipped back to Japan or find a local technician to repair it for you. But any post-fixed D11 will have some problem always and never able to resume its original condition.  So $600 for a system and it will cost you $120 to fix after a year and eventually you will replace it in 2 year with either another new unit or one of those professional wireless system like L***, or Z***.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not reliable My company has used this kit on a number of shoots and it often works just fine. However, there are several locations where they consistently malfunction severely. I think it has something to do with the internal noise gate/compressor. It's possibly getting some interference from somewhere despite the fact that these are not crazy or exotic locations (like a radio tower). These are normal office environments. I always do the autoset/clear scan at a new location to find the cleanest frequency and I definitely know how to operate this system properly because I get great results at most of the locations we use it at. But for the places where they don't work, it's always the same result, no matter what time of day or how many people are in the vicinity. Sony technical support is the slowest on earth. It takes weeks to hear back from them and they weren't able to offer me any concrete troubleshooting steps (or a refund). I'm currently trying to find out how to update the firmware on these units. No mention of that in the manual that I can find and Sony's various websites don't seem to even acknowledge that this product is in their catalogue. So if you like to gamble, then these units are a great bargain and are fine when they work. But make sure you have backup solutions! Also, the mic is huge and difficult to hide. If you're planning to simply clip it onto the lapel, then no problems. But I definitely wouldn't advise getting this kit if you are planning to hide the mic in the traditional feature film way.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Research FCC changes "Due to the?FCC Incentive Auction, the use of wireless microphones and personal monitor systems in the 600 MHz Band eventually will be prohibited by law. The “600 MHz Band” refers to frequency ranges 616–653 MHz and 663–698 MHz." "If you use wireless systems that operate in the 600 MHz Band, then you should plan to transition to another range of spectrum." I bought this version (566-608 and 614-638 MHz) in December 2017 and learned of the FCC changes after the 30-day return period. B&H wouldn't let me exchange the unit, which I had not yet used. The upcoming changes will affect half of the available frequencies on this version. I'm not happy about this. Be sure to do your due diligence about frequencies to use. B&H should use their due diligence and post information that this version and the 638-698 MHz version will be affected by the FCC auction of frequencies in the U.S.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Reliable The audio cuts in and out below certain levels. It never works on soft-spoken people.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound & Quality I own the Sennheiser G2 system and this is very comparable. I have been told it has a wider frequency band for more international use. I haven't run into trouble overseas with the G2's but I am not very careful about the rules either and keep a low profile. Almost zero noise and easier to set than my older Sennheiser we will see if it lasts as long (13+ years on the Sennheiser)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this mic! We use this wireless lab mic at our school Calvin Chin's Martial Arts Academy for two purposes. First, we use it for amplifying our instructors voice over a pa in our 4,000 square foot school during large classes. Nothing like having to yell to be heard during a a Tai chi class to ruin the mood. Second we use this to record audio during livestream classes online! The sound inboth uses is critical! For recording video and in person we used to use a purely analog wireless lab mic. It was constantly feeding back, cutting out, and crackling. This new Sony unit uses a combo of both analog and digital. It does so seamlessly. You don't notice anything except clear and uninterrupted sound. We move our bodys teaching Kung fu and Tai Chi. Nothing seems to affect the sound quality! It is very easy to use and does what all good tech does. It simply works! I'm so glad we upgraded to this!

    question

    Can this connect directly to a computer to use for webinar audio?
    Asked by: Hope M.
    The output is analog. Theoretically you could plug the mini plug output into the mic input on a computer, if it has one. While using these mics is very simple, they do require a little understanding of the technology. Read the directions completely and youll be OK!

    question

    Will this mic be legal in 2018?
    Asked by: PETER
    The permissible frequency range after the 600 MHz transition takes effect will be below 600 MHz. Because this system is tuned between the 500 and 600 MHz range, it will be usable only in part.
