16x9 unveils Bebob Box-HVR
The new Bebob Box-HVR, which 16x9 recently unveiled, offers a new mounting option for adding Sony’s HVR-DR60 portable hard disk recorder to several Sony camcorders.
Developed specifically to complement Sony camcorders like the HVR-V1U, HDR-FX7, HVR-Z1U, HDR-FX1 and DSR-PD150/170, this compact, lightweight cage-style carrier attaches underneath the camera between the base plate and tripod plate.
The system’s smooth-glide drawer is tailored to cradle the HVR-DR60 and hold it firmly in place. Fully extended, it provides easy access to the recorder’s display screen and controls. A quick-lock mechanism anchors the drawer open. When not in use, the drawer slides inside the carrier and automatically locks in position.
The Box-HVR drawer also provides space for mounting the camera’s NPF battery just behind the hard drive recorder. A 7.2V outlet is supplied for use with an external power supply.
