The Sony UWP-D12 sound quality is improved by the Hybrid Digital
Processing system that improves the performance of the microphone's transient response when compared to analogue wireless systems used in the past. The sound quality is so high with this model that it
can accurately reproduce sounds that analogue systems would be unable to such as a handclap, tee shot or a bell.
Channel Setting and Scan
The UWP-D12 model comes installed with IR Sync Features, an Active Channel Scan, and Clear Channel Scan. These three combine effectively to ensure for an easy system set up. With the Auto Set
channel mode, users can automatically detect from the available frequencies within the system the best possible frequency to use for different set-ups.

portable receiver and the UTX-M03 unidirectional microphone transmitters, are constructed using metal. This makes the model a strong and durable option and a worth consideration for use in tough conditions.
Diverse Reception System
The Sony UWP-D12 wireless microphone operates with two independent receiver sections within its unit. These deliver the optimum signal
quality, and an installed comparison circuit is used to determine the best signal quality and gives it a dropout free transmission. This mechanism helps the UWP-D12 achieve high quality and stable audio signals.

The four models of the Sony UWP-D12 series provide users with a wide choice of channels. The UWP-D12/K21 model operates at a 72MHz bandwidth across channels 21-29. The UWP-D12/K33 offers across
channels 33-41 a bandwidth of 72MHz with the UWP-D12/K42 operating at a 56MHz bandwidth with the channels 42-28. The last model in this series is the UWP-D12/K51 which offers a bandwidth of 72MHz across channels 51-59.
