SPECIFICATIONS
Long Recording Time of 4.5 Hours
Via its simple i.LINK®*1 connection, the HVR-DR60 Hard Disk
Recording Unit can record HDV 1080i streams from a compatible
HDV camcorder or DVCAM/DV streams from a compatible
DVCAM camcorder. The internal 1.8-inch hard disk drive (HDD)
offers a large capacity of 60 GB, which translates into a long 4.5
hours (270 minutes) recording time for both formats.
HDV 1080i streams are recorded as native HDV files (.m2t)*2,
2
while DVCAM/DV streams are recorded as DV-AVI (Type1)* or
RAW-DV*2 files.

Hybrid Operation
for Reliable Recording and Archiving
The HVR-DR60 offers a hybrid recording function, in which
video and audio material along with its time code is recorded
simultaneously to the hard disk and camcorder tape,
limiting the possibility that important shots could get lost or
accidentally deleted. This hybrid function also facilitates
instant archiving of source footage – which in many cases
does not allow for retakes. After a shoot, operators can
immediately archive the source tape and use the HVR-DR60
material as work footage. This saves the time and effort
required to copy the source footage to a separate
high-capacity medium.

Versatile Recording Modes
VTR-like Controls
User-free Area
The HVR-DR60 can be used with HDV and DVCAM camcorders
that are equipped with an i.LINK connector. Three recording
modes can be selected to support various camcorder models
and operational needs.
The HVR-DR60 is equipped with buttons that provide VTR-like
control for functions such as record, play, stop, next, previous, fast
forward (approximately three times normal speed), and fast
rewind (approximately three times normal speed). Using these
buttons, the unit can output HDV/DVCAM/DV streams with
time code via the i.LINK connector.
The HVR-DR60 has a user-free area of approximately 1 GB in
the hard disk, where common data files such as still images
and project files of nonlinear editing systems can be stored.
SYNCHRO mode
When using camcorders that support external rec control,
such as the HVR-V1U, HVR-Z1U, DSR-450WS, DSR-400 and
DSR-250, recording to the HVR-DR60 is directly controlled by
the press of the camcorder’s rec start button.*3

operators informed of both the camcorder and hard drive

The HVR-DR60 uses the same infoLITHIUM® L Series batteries
as the HVR-V1U, HVR-Z1U, and DSR-PD170 camcorders.
With the smallest capacity NP-F570 battery, the HVR-DR60
can run continuously up to 5.5 hours (330 min), and with the

3) A buffer memory can store
approximately 14 seconds of video

made by first writing the data to the
buffer, and then writing the buffer
data to the disk platter. Consequently,
if the 3G sensor temporarily interrupts
disk writes, video footage is not lost.
Thanks to such advanced technologies,
the HVR-DR60 should continue to record
stably even when dropped from as high as
39 3/8 inches (100 cm) (based on Sony's testing).

as the HVR-V1U, HVR-Z1U, and DSR-PD170 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). Long operating hours are offered using the
same camcorder batteries HDV operators already have at
hand.

When using camcorders that do not support external rec
control, such as the HVR-A1U and DSR-PD170, the FOLLOW
mode can be used to start and stop recording of the
HVR-DR60. In this mode, the HVR-DR60 periodically checks
whether the camcorder is in rec mode or not, and follows

Tapeless Recording
To trigger recording of the HVR-DR60, most HDV camcorders
require a tape to be loaded. However, this is not the case
when using it with the HVR-V1U. The HVR-V1U sends the
same rec start/stop trigger that controls its tape transport to
the HVR-DR60. This feature offers operators the choice of
tapeless operation or hybrid operation.

pausing read/write operations.
This helps protect the HDD from being
damaged when the unit is accidentally
dropped and
subject to
strong impact.
3) A buffer memory can store
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 platter. Consequently,
if the 3G sensor temporarily interrupts
disk writes, video footage is not lost.
Thanks to such advanced technologies,
the HVR-DR60 should continue to record
stably even when dropped from as high as
39 3/8 inches (100 cm) (based on Sony's testing).

Long Recording Time of 4.5 Hours
Via its simple i.LINK®*1 connection, the HVR-DR60 Hard Disk
Recording Unit can record HDV 1080i streams from a compatible
HDV camcorder or DVCAM/DV streams from a compatible
DVCAM camcorder. The internal 1.8-inch hard disk drive (HDD)
offers a large capacity of 60 GB, which translates into a long 4.5
hours (270 minutes) recording time for both formats.
HDV 1080i streams are recorded as native HDV files (.m2t)*2,

while DVCAM/DV streams are recorded as DV-AVI (Type1)* or
RAW-DV*2 files.

Hybrid Operation
for Reliable Recording and Archiving
The HVR-DR60 offers a hybrid recording function, in which
video and audio material along with its time code is recorded
simultaneously to the hard disk and camcorder tape,
limiting the possibility that important shots could get lost or
accidentally deleted. This hybrid function also facilitates
instant archiving of source footage – which in many cases
does not allow for retakes. After a shoot, operators can
immediately archive the source tape and use the HVR-DR60
material as work footage. This saves the time and effort
required to copy the source footage to a separate
high-capacity medium.
