Sony touts Bluetooth camcorder mic

Record 5.1-channel soundtracks up to 30m away

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

CES Sony will next month ship a cute Bluetooth microphone accessory for members of its DVD camcorder line-up. The ECM-HW1 is designed as a pick-up for audio that the camcorder's main mic can't always catch, particularly since it can be located up to 30m from the recording device.

The consumer electronics giant is pitching the part as a 5.1-channel device, but it actually feeds the centre channel of 5.1-channel recordings made using a suitably-equipped - and Bluetooth-supporting, of course - camera. For suitable models, look to Sony's upcoming DCR-DVD405 and DCR-DVD505 cameras shipping in the US in February and March, respectively, for around $900 and $1100. ®
