HVRDR60

HDV HARD DISK RECORDER

Pricing available upon request

Lightweight and portable hard disk drive (HDD) recording unit ideally suited for use with the new HVR-V1U HDV camcorder. The HVR-DR60 is also easily connected to a compatible camcorder via its i.LINK® interface, and offers videographers the ability to record onto both tape and the hard disk drive simultaneously - an ideal hybrid recording solution for your customers providing approximately 4.5 hours of continuous HDV, DVCAM, or DV stream recording. Utilizing a 14 second cache recording function, the HVR-DR60 can help prevent the loss of important scenes or events that occur 14 seconds before the camera's REC start button is pressed - a true life saver in stake-out and surveillance applications. Additionally, long operating hours are offered using the same camcorder batteries Sony HDV operators already have at hand. The HVR-DR60 uses the same infoLITHIUM L Series batteries as the HVR-V1U, HVR-Z1U, as well as the standard definition DSR-PD170 DVCAM camcorders. With the smallest capacity NP-F570 battery, the HVR-DR60 can run continuously up to 5.5 hours (330 min), and with the largest capacity NP-F970, this increases up to 18 hours (1080 min). Weighing a mere 8 ounces (without battery), the HVR-DR60 adds little weight for the cameraman to bear, while adding considerable functionality to his complement of high quality, Sony HDV acquisition tools.
