Sony DWR-S02D overview

  • 1Description

The Sony DWRS02D/30 Dual Channel Digital Wireless Receiver is a digital dual-channel slot-in receiver. It operates within a 66 MHz range, from 566 to 608 MHz and 614 to 638 MHz. The slot-in receiver can be mounted directly onto Sony digital slot-in compatible camcorders; the receiver then facilitates 2-channel wireless operation with unique wireless remote control of the digital wireless system from the camera viewfinder. It can also be mounted on existing cameras (or operated in a mixer bag) using the DWA-01D or DWA-F01D adapters, providing either AES3 digital audio or analog audio output. To assist in the wireless system set-up, the receiver includes both clear channel and active channel scan functions.

Mounts directly onto HDW-650F, PDW-700/F800, PWM-500, and PMW-350/320/TD300 camcorder slots
Supports 2 channel AES3 or analog output
Includes clear channel and active channel scanning modes
Innovative wireless remote control of the transmitter from the receiver (using 2.4 GHz IEEE802.15.4 communication technology)

    Sony DWR-S02D reviews

    DWRS02D/30 Dual Channel Digital Wireless Receiver is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zaxcom Killer I needed a dual channel, digital wireless camera link. After a year of battling with ever failing Zaxcom equipment (which at it's worst was dropping out at boom range) I decided to think outside the box & go with something new. That something was a two Sony DWT-B01 transmitters & one Sony DWR-S02 receiver. You could also use two DWT-P01 transmitters. I can't speak for all sound recordists but 90%+ of my shoots are ENG & shot on Sony XDCAM so I asked myself the question: why am I rigging a receiver with a mess of cables on the outside when Sony make one that slots right into the camera? So, I took a gamble & bit the bullet. In 60 seconds I can now slot the S02 into the camera & have a dual channel, digital link. Simply unscrew four screws, take the plate off, insert, switch to wireless & you're go for launch. Sound a little easier than say... running a Velco strap around the camera or attaching Velcro stickers the side or buying a battery mount for the back of the camera & then running at least three cables etc, etc, etc? That is of course hoping the cameraman isn't already using the Hirose & D-Tap? Point blank Sony DWR-S02 advantages over Zaxcom: 1) Installs internally on XDCAM & other Sony cameras, not externally. External Sony adapters, including DC-only and DC/battery powered ones (both supporting AES), available for other camera brands. 2) No cables whatsoever. 3) Less bulk. 4) Less weight (including cables). 5) Less time required to rig up. 6) Increased redundancy: you broadcast on two frequency channels, not one. If one drops out the other keep going. With Zaxcom one channel drops out, both channels drop out. S02 suitable for dual mono live broadcast. 7) Drop outs, if & when they do occur, are much shorter in duration than Zaxcom, the Sony drop outs are equivalent to analog, a fraction of a second. Zaxcom can take up to two seconds to recover. 8) Reciever fully integrates into camera, cameraman can actually monitor signal strength, as well as levels, in viewfinder (*sometimes this is pre-enabled or requires switching on in XDCAM menu). 9) No chance what-so-ever of tripping the camera fuse plugging into the Hirose power (as so many a sound recordist has done plugging in a Zaxcom into a hot camera). 10) Sony receivers have nearly double the RF frequency range of Zaxcom & Lectrosonics (double block size). As far as I can tell the only advantages Zaxcom offer is offers self contained stereo transmitters & a 4-channel receiver (which is advertised as 4-channel but will only be delivered as 4-channel if you ask for it as such & pay extra, kinda like buying a 4-wheel drive car & having to specifically ask for 4-wheel drive). But as previously mentioned in point 6 this comes at the cost of redundancy (& in my experience reliability). The Sony DWT-B01 & DWR-S02 combination is by far the best & most reliable link I have ever used; all but bullet proof. I love it & better yet, cameraman adore it: a full digital stereo link at 255 grams (9 ounces) with no cables.... why wouldn't they? Zaxcom be gone. I hate to say but even the Lectrosonics SRb5p slot-in pales in comparison to the S02 as it requires an external cable for dual channel operation in Sony cameras (& it's only a hybrid digital signal anyway). Sony are in this case, the one & only.
