The Sony URX-P40 is a camera-mount wireless receiver that delivers uncompromising audio quality while still being easy to use and fast to set up with no menu diving. It is made with simplicity in mind for DIY cameramen, videographers, vloggers, and journalists working in the field without a crew. The receiver is packed with professional features including NFC Sync and Channel Memory functions, which handle time-consuming setup and adjustments for you, so you're ready to shoot within seconds.

The URX-P40 offers digital signal processing for pristine audio and analog UHF transmission with true-diversity reception for reliability, even under difficult shooting conditions. This low-profile camera-mount receiver is 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 cameras equipped with a digital Multi Interface Shoe.

The URX-P40 is backward-compatible with Sony WL-800 and UWP Series systems.

Reliable Reception with True Diversity
To achieve stable audio, the UWP-D receiver employs true-diversity technology with two antennas and two independent receiver sections within the unit. Both RF signals are compared and the stronger signal is automatically selected for output—reducing dropouts to a minimum.

The angle of the two antennas can also be adjusted, which helps to further prevent signal dropouts.

The system offers a 72 MHz bandwidth with 2772 UHF frequencies.

Professional Features to Speed Up Your Workflow
NFC Automatic Channel-Setting Mode
Press and hold the NFC/Sync button, and the receiver scans for the cleanest RF channel. Simply hold the transmitter next to the receiver; it automatically syncs up and you’re good to go!

Unlike purely digital systems, the URX-P40 allows you to send a single mic to multiple cameras for broadcast applications. Fast NFC communication makes setup for multiple receivers a breeze.

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
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 mics in corporate presentations or quickly swapping to a back-up mic.

High-Quality Sound with Digital Audio Processing
Unlike traditional analog wireless systems, the UWP-D supplements its proven analog UHF transmission technology with a proprietary digital audio processing. Transient sounds and consonants are reproduced with greater accuracy, resulting in clear, natural sound that’s intelligible and nuanced.
A Compact Build, Ready for the Camera
The URX-P40 features a robust, all-metal construction well suited for tough operating conditions.

Using the included shoemount adapter, the receiver easily mounts on your camera, while adding minimal weight to your rig. Cables are included to connect to cameras equipped with either a 3.5mm or an XLR audio input.

Direct Digital Audio via SMAD-P5 MI Shoe Adapter
The SMAD-P5 digital MI Shoe adapter allows you to integrate the receiver with XDCAM camcorders and select Sony cameras equipped with a digital Multi Interface Shoe.

  • This setup provides a direct digital connection, skipping the receiver’s D/A and camera’s A/D converters for superior audio quality and low noise.
  • Audio information such as RF level meter, audio-mute status, and low-battery alert for the transmitters is displayed on the camera's viewfinder.
  • This cable-free configuration allows for fast setup in the field.
  • Compatible models include the a7R IV mirrorless camera, the PXW-Z280 and PXW-Z190 XDCAM camcorders, and more.
Compatibility with Other Sony Wireless Systems
The URX-P40 can be used with a UWP Series or WL-800 Series transmitter.
Multiple Powering Options
Two AA batteries (alkaline or NiMH rechargeable type) power the receiver for up to 6 hours.

A battery count-up timer allows for accurate reading of battery running time to minute accuracy.

The receiver can also be powered through its USB port, allowing it to run for numerous hours on a USB power pack or indefinitely, if you have access to AC.

With the SMAD-P5 Digital MI Shoe adapter, the receiver can get power directly from Sony cameras equipped with an MI Shoe.

Cartridge-type battery case allows for quick battery replacement on set.

Headphone Monitoring for Location Sound
If your camera doesn’t have a headphone jack, Phone mode lets you monitor your sound via the receiver’s headphone output while recording.

When the receiver is used as a personal monitoring device by a director or crew on set, Monitor mode lets you adjust the headphone volume on the fly with the +/- buttons.

Other Features
  • The receiver provides a variable output level control of ±12 dB, useful when working with cameras without manual input level control.
  • Simple menus make navigation easy. Advanced menus for in-depth control are also available.
  • You can operate up to 16 mics in one location.

Can you connect two UTX-B40 to one URX-P40? A use case would be two people talking, each person with a UTX-B40 and a URX-P40 connected to a camera that is recording kind of like a discussion/interview between two people
Asked by: Sergio
No, the URX-P40 is a single-channel receiver that can be used with one transmitter only. For two people, you will want the Sony URX-P03D Dual-Channel Camera-Mount Wireless Receiver - UC14: 470 to 542 MHz (B&H # SOURXP03D14) which is a two-channel receiver that can be used with two transmitters at the same time. We do sell a kit that includes the URX-P03D receiver and two UTX-B40 transmitters with lavalier mics and a case, which is the Sony UWP-D 2-Person Camera-Mount Wireless Omni Lavalier Microphone System Kit - UC14: 470 to 542 MHz (B&H # SOURXP03D14Q). The URX-P03D can send one signal to the camera with the combined audio from both mics.

If URX-P40 receiver is backwards compatible for use with an older UTX-B2 Is it legal or not to use in USA the old Sony UTX-B2 Transmitter because it uses the frequencies 638.125-661.875 MHz ? I've heard that using microphones in this range is noy legal anymore. Can someone clarify this?

The FCC recently made changes to regulations for use of the 600 MHz band within the United States. Frequencies above 616 MHz are now designated for broadband use and can no longer be used for operating wireless microphones.
