B&H is excited to announce the new Sony UWP-V Series UHF wireless system. This compact, true diversity system is an outstanding value at $499.95 for the Bodypack Lavalier packages, and $699.95 for the Plug-in Transmitter/Lavalier packages. The UWP-V Series replaces the UWP-C Series, with enhancements that include: a rugged, all-metal chassis and Mic/Line switchable input at the transmitter. PLL-synthesized tuning, space-diversity reception, and all the professional wireless features that made the UWP-C series a popular choice. Components in this system include: the URX-P2 portable receiver, UTX-B2 bodypack transmitter, and the UTX-P1 plug-on transmitter.

The camera-mountable URX-P2 receiver features swivel antennas and space-diversity technology which stabilizes reception and minimizes RF interference by selecting the strongest incoming signal. It features a convenient auto channel scanning function that automatically detects unoccupied channels, allowing operators easily to select the most appropriate channel to use. A stereo mini-jack output with monitor volume control is featured and both stereo, mini and XLR cables are provided. An LCD display provides channel & frequency information, battery life, RF-input level, audio-output status and accumulated operating time. The receiver operates on two "AA" batteries for up to 8 hours. The URX-P2s compact design and included shoe-mount adapter allows for easy mounting to most camcorders.

The improved UTX-P1 plug-in and UTX-B2 bodypack transmitters feature comprehensive LCD displays and a Mic/Line-level switch for standard wired microphones line-level sources. Selectable output power provides a choice between 5mW output, which is suitable for simultaneous multi-channel operation or 30mW output for long distance transmission. The 5mW output mode also helps conserve battery life. Like the URX-P2 receiver, the transmitters feature 188 selectable UHF frequencies and operate for up to 8 hours on two "AA" alkaline batteries.

B&H sells several different levels of UWP-V Series complete kits; they're designed to take the guesswork out of building a wireless package for location sound applications. They act as a "value menu" of sorts—you get everything you need in one shot, and you'll save yourself some money, too. They are sold as Single or Dual systems and come in two levels: Basic and Deluxe. Our deluxe kits include broadcast-quality lavalier microphones that are significantly better than the standard mics included with the wireless system. Packages are available in two alternative channel blocks "3032" (UHF-TV channels 30,31,32 and 33) 566 MHz to 590 MHz or "4244" (UHF-TV channels 42,43,44 and 45) 638 MHz to 662 MHz.
