HVR-DR60 Highlights

Small size and perfect balance - the HVR-DR60 hard disk drive measures just 79 x 44 x 100 millimeters (W x H x L) in size, and weighs only 227 grams (excluding battery). Using the supplied shoe adapter, the unit can be mounted on the cold shoe of the camcorder.

HDD Smart Protection Three advanced technologies are used for reliable recording performance of the HVR-DR60:

* Rubber shock absorbers hold the HDD unit in place, preventing external shock being transmitted when the HVR-DR60 chassis is subject to impact.
* A 3G sensor detects gravitational acceleration in three dimensions, so however the HVR-DR60 may be oriented, the sensor can detect if it has been dropped -- in which case power to the HDD is shut off and the recording heads are retracted from the disk platters, pausing read/write operations. This protects the HDD from being damaged when the unit is accidentally dropped and subject to strong impact.
* The third feature is a buffer memory, capable of storing approximately 14 seconds of video and audio footage. Recordings are made by first writing the data to the buffer, and then writing the buffer data to the disk platters. Consequently, if the 3G sensor temporarily interrupts disk writes, video footage is not lost.

The HVR-DR60: An ideal companion for the HVR-V1E

The HVR-DR60 hard disk drive can be used with existing HDV/DVCAM camcorders equipped with an i.LINK (FireWire) interface such as the HVR-Z1E, HVR-A1E and DSR-PD170. However, use with the HVR-V1E offers unique features only available in this combination.

Checking the operational status on the HVR-V1E On the LCD and VF of the HVR-V1E, you can easily check the operational status of the HVR-DR60 (connection, rec status, battery level, remaining recording time, recording folder name, etc.). This keeps you aware of both the camcorder and hard drive status without taking your eyes away from what you’re shooting.

Tapeless recording with the HVR-V1E The HVR-DR60 hard disk drive can synchronise with the record command that is outputted from the camcorder. The HVR-V1E differs from its predecessor in that it can send a record signal with out the presence of a tape inserted. Thus tape-less, "Hybrid recording" is possible by connecting the HVR-V1E with the DVR-DR60.

Maximizing the efficiency of non-linear editing

Via a simple i.LINK connection, the HVR-DR60 Hard Disk Recording Unit allows recording of a compatible HDV1080i stream from an HDV camcorder, or a DV stream from a DVCAM camcorder. The 1.8-inch internal HDD offers a large capacity of 60GB, which translates into an impressive approximately 270 minutes (4.5 hours) for both HDV and DVCAM recordings.

The HDV1080i stream is recorded as native HDV files (.M2T), while DV stream is recorded as AVI files (.AVI :DV Type1).

When connected to a PC, the HVR-DR60 is recognized as a standard external drive, so you can immediately access and edit the recorded footage just as any typical video file. This saves the time previously required for digitizing material from the tape to PC -- time that could otherwise be spent for more creative and productive editing tasks.

Many NLE programs will be able to access files and control the HVR-DR60 hard disk drive via the i.LINK connector. With compatible programs, the HVR-DR60 hard disk drive will behave as a VTR, but with a random access file structure which will allow immediate access to clips on the disk.

Using the hybrid recording function of the HVR-V1E camcorder, in which video and audio material is recorded simultaneously to the hard disk and tape, you can be assured that you won’t lose an important shot. In the rare case that either the tape device or hard disk fails, you will always have a backup.

The hybrid function also facilitates archiving operations of your all-important source footage -- which in most cases do not allow for reshoots. After a shoot, immediately archive your source tape and use the HVR-DR60 material as your work footage. Unlike camcorders using low-capacity recording media, there is no need to invest the time and effort in copying the original data to a separate high-capacity medium. Just reformat the HVR-DR60 and you are ready to go on your next assignment.

Same batteries that power your camcorder

The last thing you want to worry about on location is using different types of batteries. With the HVR-DR60 hard disc drive you can use the same InfoLithium L Series batteries that are used for the HVR-V1E, HVR-Z1E and DSR-PD170 camcorders. Using the smallest capacity NP-F570 battery, the HVR-DR60 operating time is approximately 270 minutes (4.5 hours), and with a high-capacity NP-F970 unit, this increases to approximately 810 minutes (13.5 hours). Long operating hours are possible with the batteries that Sony HDV users already have at hand.
