In Amsterdam, Sony also announced the third generation of its digital DWX radio link. It offers an even lower latency of 1.2ms (previously 1.5ms). The DWT-B03R digital radio transmitter is about one-third more compact than its predecessor (B01N), is water and perspiration resistant thanks to its magnesium housing and also supports multi-channel operation. The transmitter draws its power from a Sony NP-BX1 battery.
The new DWR-R03D 2-channel digital radio receiver is a 1U receiver designed for rack mounting and is equipped with a 4-channel diversity antenna and Dante, a digital network technology for audio via IP. It provides a high dynamic range RF circuitry and supports redundancy, multi-channel headphone and network audio verification.
The new system is rounded off by the omni-directional miniature electret condenser microphone ECM-77LM (Lavalier Mic), which now has a small 3-pin connector, and the dual battery charger BC-DWX, which is capable of mains operation as well as Power Over Ethernet. The introduction of the wireless microphone system is planned for spring 2018.
