The Sony DWT-B30 body pack transmitter combines the advanced digital technology used within the DWT-B03R, assuring stable, secure and extremely high quality digital transmissions, with the housing of the well loved DWT-B01N. This transmitter from Sony's third generation DWX series, is a great choice for a wide range of applications, from theatre and concerts to studio based TV production and ENG/EFP.

Operating across a wide bandwidth of up to 148 MHz (depending on region) the DWT-B30 is optimised for finding clear frequencies in even the noisiest of environments. With the addition of the high density channel groups, you can now squeeze up to 21 channels per 8MHz TV Channel. Compatible with Sony's wireless studio control software, up to 82 transmitters can be controlled via the  Cross Remote™ function combined with the RMU-01 remote control unit (available separately).

More channels per band


The DWT-B30 is ideal for use in large-scale multichannel productions. Its 144MHz bandwidth per pack means the bandwidth is almost doubled over the previous versions. DWX3 supports up to 21 simultaneous channels per 8MHz TV band.

Extreme stability and low-latency


Sony’s advanced digital audio processing, encryption and RF transmission technologies assure secure, stable transmission and reception of very high quality audio with low latency.

Control 82 transmitters remotely


The Sony DWT-B30 is compatible with Sony Wireless Studio control software for PC (Ver 5.0 or later), allowing flexible remote operation of up to 82 transmitters while using the Cross Remote™ function combined with the RMU-01 remote control unit (available separately).

Superb audio quality wireless transmission and reception


High quality 24-bit digital audio using Sony's well developed codecs based on years of audio engineering expertise, providing excellent transient response, a wide dynamic range of more than 106dB and a wide frequency response from 20 Hz to 22KHz. 

Selectable RF output power


Selectable RF power to adapt to any scenario, (2mW/10mW/25mW) to prioritise stable multi-channel or long distance operation.
A USB DC power source can be used for long-term operation or as an emergency power supply.
The DWT-B30 can be operated with a variety of AA-type batteries including alkaline, lithium or NiMH. Alkaline batteries allow up to 6.5 hours of operation.
