ECM-W2BT Wireless Microphone
Stable Bluetooth® audio wireless communication
The ECM-W2BT offer a stable Bluetooth wireless solution to capture crisp clear audio from up to 650 feet (200m) away and is ideal for use on Sony cameras that employ either a digital or analogue MI (Multi Interface) shoe for cable free connectivity. When connected to a digital MI shoe camera, the receiver converts the audio from analogue to digital and does the digital signal processing, sending the digitized audio to the camera for a low-noise high-quality recording.
Compatible with a wide selection of cameras and recorders.
The ECM-W2BT is not only ideal for vloggers and content creators capturing video on a camera or camcorder, but can also be used for external audio recorders, mobile phones and personal computers. The ECM-W2BT is supplied with a 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable that easily connects the receiver to cameras and other devices that have a 3.5mm microphone input jack.
High-quality omni-directional mic capsule for clear sound pickup
The Transmitter has an advanced omni-directional microphone capsule to capture clear sound recording from any direction. A fuzzy wind screen is also included and can be attached to the microphone to reduce wind noise if required. It also includes a 3.5mm mic jack so other microphones like the ECM-LV1 Lavalier Stereo Mic can be attached or any other compatible mic with 3.5mm connector. The transmitter also includes a convenient clip that can attach to clothing.
Transmitter attenuator switch adjusts audio pickup level
An attenuator switch on the transmitter is provided to adjust audio level pickup and is useful when sound is excessively loud or too low. Three attenuation levels, 20dB, 10dB and 0dB, can be selected depending on the sound source volume. The 20dB setting allows recording of loud sound with reduced distortion, while quieter sounds can be amplified for recording at the 0dB setting. Using the attenuator function allows appropriate audio levels to be recorded. The best way to set the audio level is while monitoring the audio level meter on the camera the volume on headphones connected to the camera.
Stable communication up to 650 feet
Through improved wireless connectivity the stability of the connection between microphone and receiver has been increased, even in the presence of obstacles or in crowded environments with multiple wireless activity taking place. In locations with good visibility, communication is possible at up to 650feet (200m)1, significantly increasing the flexibility of audio recording.
Wind screen included
The included windscreen can be used with the ECM-W2BT to reduce the wind noise that occurs when strong wind or breath impacts the microphone. The speaker's voice can be recorded clearly and stably, even when shooting outdoors.
