Sony has just announced the new URX-P41D two-channel portable receiver, supporting the MI (Multi Interface) shoe with Digital Audio Interface.
The URX-P41D receiver can work with any of the UWP-D transmitters, and it will be made available either as a standalone item, or as part of a new UWP-D27 kit, which will include two UTX-B40 Bodypack Transmitters. The new system will be available from April 2022.
URX-P41D new features
- Digital audio interface to improve sound quality
- Uses DSP (digital signal processing) for digital companding, and improves sound quality by optimising a time-constant range between the transmitter and receiver.
- Using the SMAD-P5 MI shoe adaptor allows direct digital audio recording and delivers high sound quality with low noise by skipping the D/A and A/D process.
- “NFC SYNC” function to allow quick and easy channel setting
- This automatically scans for the appropriate frequency. Touching the receiver to the transmitter will sync the channel for optimum speed and efficiency.
- Compact form factor, with improved ergonomics
- External Microphone Input and Three-channel mixing function
- An External Microphone Input for an additional wired microphone. Three-channel audio recording is available by using a Sony’s lavalier microphone through the external microphone input. Four-channel audio recording is also possible when using a stereo microphone through the external microphone input.
- Stable RF reception.
- The URX-P41D can reduce interruptions in reception (RF signal dropout), by utilising a space diversity reception system. The angle of the antennas on the portable receiver can also be adjusted, which helps to further eliminate signal dropout.
- Functions to improve performance when on location
- Auto gain mode and Output level control brings the user peace of mind that the audio levels are correct when out in the field.
