ECM-W3 Dual-channel Wireless Microphone
High-quality digital sound recording
High signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) microphone units are integrated into the two combined microphone-transmitters, enabling clear voice recording with low noise.
High-quality dual-channel digital transmission
Connecting the dual-channel receiver to a camera from Sony that supports the Multi Interface (MI) Shoe, such as one of the α™ series digital interchangeable-lens cameras or vlog cameras, allows the digital audio signal output from the receiver to be recorded directly by the camera, enabling high-quality sound recording with minimal noise contamination.
Noise-suppressing filter functions
A noise cut filter using digital signal processing to effectively remove noise, and a low cut filter that reduces noise in the low-frequency range, are provided on the microphone side. Less noise removal is needed post- production, making workflow more efficient.
Multi Interface (MI) Shoe compatible
The receiver can be easily attached to a camera from Sony that supports the Multi Interface (MI) Shoe, such as one of the α™ series digital interchangeable-lens cameras or vlog cameras, without cables, allowing immediate sound acquisition and avoiding interference with the vari-angle LCD monitor even when it is opened horizontally for shooting. This allows a greater degree of freedom and mobility when shooting.
The convenience of wireless
The ECM-W3 comprises two microphone-transmitters and a dual-channel receiver, allowing wireless sound capture of two speakers' voices. Communication is possible at up to 492 ft (150 m) in clear line-of-sight locations, with Bluetooth 5.3 (Bluetooth Low Energy) and LC3plus codecs providing low power consumption, low latency, and high sound quality. Power saving has also enabled a reduction in battery size.
