Petrol Bags, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, shows a diverse range of new camera and audio equipment bags at IBC2012 in Amsterdam from September 7 to 11, 2012 in booth number 11.E55.

New for Audio
Petrol Bags will present five new products for audio. The Large Deca Sound Gear & Accessories Bag with Built-in Trolley (PA1003) is optimally designed to move delicate equipment and accessories comfortably and securely, keeping them safe, organised and accessible while working.

The Deca Audio Bag (PS614) is an ultra-lightweight carrier designed to securely transport sound equipment and keep it safe, organized, and accessible while working. It accommodates a Zaxcom Nomad or Sound Devices SD 788 mixer with a CL8 controller and offers easy access to the SD522 mixer’s SD card slot.


Users will also appreciate the new Portable Digital Recorder Pouch (PS615) to hold the Zoom H4N, Tascam DR-100 and DR-40 or similar size portable digital recorders. Its top flap is constructed of Transparent Polyurethane (TPU) for maximum visibility while shielding the recorder’s front panel and top external microphones.

The upgraded Deca Sound Man Rain Poncho (PS606) comfortably covers and protects a user carrying a mixer and fully loaded Petrol Eargonizer bag. It now features black ripstop nylon and TPU coating for greater elasticity and water protection in addition to keeping the user cooler and more comfortable.


New for Lighting
Petrol Bags will show the Liteporter (PL2005) professional carrier especially designed to transport and protect a Litepanels 1x1 LED light fixture. Liteporter has room to comfortably hold a Litepanels 1x1 LED fixture or similar size light, detachable mounting yoke, AC power supply with cord, power cable, an Anton/Bauer battery, and color/conversion diffusion gels. Constructed of rugged, water-resistant and lightweight, semi-hard case features an internal one-piece ABS honeycomb frame for extra strength and protection.

New for Video-enabled DSLRs
The new Rolling DigiSuite DSLR Camera Case (PD620) is a carry-on size roll-away camera bag designed especially for the DSLR shooter on the go. It glides smoothly and effortlessly on a built-in wheel and tote assembly, and its front lid unzips quickly to reveal a central compartment contoured to comfortably fit up to two DSLR cameras with lens attached. Detachable internal dividers help secure contents and create pockets for storing spare lenses, a mattebox, camera base plate, follow focus, camera light, viewfinder, cables and more.


New LCD Monitor Bags
Petrol Bags will showcase two new LCD monitor bags. The Deca 5” Monitor Bag (PM805) is uniquely designed to safely transport auxiliary LCD camera monitors up to 5” in size. The bag’s top flap opens envelope-style into a sturdy four-sided hood to ease viewing. The Deca 21.5” LCD Monitor Bag (PM806) is custom designed for a Flanders Scientific LM-2140W or similar size LCD monitor. Both Monitor Bags offer multiple working benefits on location.

New for Tripods
The Soft Tripod Bag (PT703) is the easy and comfortable way to transport a full-size camera tripod e.g. from Sachtler (Internal dimensions L: 99cm /39", W: 22cm/9" , H: 22cm/9"). Featuring a unique triangle design for easy storage, this new lightweight (1.1 kg/2.42 lbs.) carrier is constructed of durable, water-resistant black 900D fabric.
