Following similar moves by other wireless microphone makers, Sony Electronics has introduced two programs of its own to ease the transition to the new approved wireless microphone channel range. Customers can take advantage of either option.

Following similar moves by other wireless microphone makers, Sony Electronics has introduced two programs of its own to ease the transition to the new approved wireless microphone channel range. Customers can take advantage of either option.

First, Sony is offering an end-user, mail-in cash rebate on all Sony wireless models. No trade-in is required, according to the company. Customers can purchase a new system and submit forms online to claim a rebate ranging from $40 to $200. For details, see www.sony.com/wirelessrebate.

Or, end users of Sony 800 Series wireless components who prefer to modify their units can take advantage of a Subsidized Service Program to subsidize a portion of the modification costs. Sony customers with WL-800 Series B-suffix models who wish to modify their existing channels 62/64 or channels 66/68 wireless systems to operate on alternative channels 30/32 or channels 42/44 can contact Sony Service in Teaneck, N.J., (201-833-5300) to ask about prices for specific model modifications.

Sony customers with UWP Series systems operating on channels 62/64 or channels 66/68 should consider replacing their wireless systems with new UWP systems that operate in channels 30/32 or channels 42/44.

"FCC regulations for the use of wireless microphones have changed due to the upcoming DTV transition," said Paul Foschino, senior marketing manager for professional audio at Sony Electronics, in a statement. "Sony has discontinued its previous range of WL-800 and UWP Series of wireless microphone models operating on previously dedicated UHF-TV channels now authorized by the FCC for wireless transmission."
