Features of the Sony ECM W3

The Super Cardioid, Omnidirectional, and Bidirectional polar patterns, as well as low-cut or noise-reduction filters, are all available on the ECM-S1.

1. Wireless Technology

The ability to record without being connected to a wire is a game-changer, which is famed for its stunning settings. You can roam about and record sounds from various angles thanks to the Sony ECM W3’s flawless wireless audio transmission. The devices may be up to 492 feet apart and still interact with one another using Bluetooth 5.3 low-energy LC3plus codec. Low power and latency are guaranteed by the Bluetooth LC3plus codec without sacrificing sound quality. 

2. Quality Sound

The superior sound quality of the Sony ECM W3 will immerse your listeners in the action and transfer them right into your Imagination.

3. Multi-Interface 

The receiver can be quickly and without hassle linked to a Sony camera1 that supports the Multi Interface (MI) Shoe, such as one of the “a” series digital interchangeable-lens cameras as well as vlog cameras, without the need for cords.

4. Compact & Portable

Due to varied conditions, your equipment must be adaptable so the Sony ECM W3 is designed small and lightweight, making it simple to transport to different shooting sites without adding weight to your equipment.

5. More microphone options

Depending on the circumstance and purpose you want to use the microphone for, you can now choose from a larger range of possibilities thanks to Sony’s expanded assortment of microphones.

6. Easy Installation and Compatibility

In the quick-paced world of filmmaking, time is of the essence so you can start filming right away with the Sony ECM W3 thanks to its quick setup and compatibility with a variety of cameras and recording devices.

7. Safety Features

The risk of clipping during loud recording is decreased by a safety function that enables the simultaneous recording of two audio signals, one at a normal level and the other 20 dB lower. The recording level can be modified to one of three settings using the attenuator function, which is also offered, depending on the audio loudness.

8. Adjusting to Extreme Situations

Due to the occasionally occurring sandstorms and sweltering heat, Dubai’s climate can be difficult so the Sony ECM W3 is designed to endure these elements, guaranteeing that even in bad weather, your audio quality is maintained.

8. Handle Carefully

Avoid drops and impacts when handling your Sony ECM W3 because the electronics are delicate and can be easily harmed.
