Coco-DVL is a compact and cost-effective method of converting power from a camera's existing NPF battery to simultaneously operate 12V accessories such as a light, on-board LCD monitor, or audio receiver. Designed to draw voltage from high capacity Sony NPF batteries, Coco-DVL can be used with popular Sony camcorders such as the HVR-Z1U, HDR-FX1, VX-1000/2000 series, and DSR PD150/170. Coco attaches to the back of the camera in place of the battery. The battery then simply snaps onto Coco's special mounting plate. The ingenious design orients the battery at a 90° angle, providing ample space opposite the plate for the system's auxiliary connectors, and access to the camera's viewfinder with minimal interference.
Power and Data.
Coco-DVL transfers 7.2v of power and Info-Lithium data from the battery directly to the camera. The Coco DVL also supplies 12v conversion through a secondary connector.
Supplies 12 volts
You’ll get 12V to run a camera light such as a Lux-DV, or external LCD monitor via a unique new Twist D-Tap connector. The ingenious twist technology allows for 180° orientation of the power cable. Regardless of direction chosen, the same polarity is maintained.
The Coco’s 12 output is designed to provide a steady output of 15W, which is sufficient for running an LCD monitor, video transmitter or camera light with a 10W bulb. It is also possible to use a light with a 20W bulb, if the light is dimmable or incorporates Softstart electronics. (Otherwise, using a 20W bulb may cause the battery to overheat and overload its internal fuse.) When used with an NPF970 battery, the approximate run time of the camera (in record mode) and light (with a 10W bulb) is 135 minutes. With a 20W bulb (with Softstart) the run time is 75 minutes. To attach audio accessories, the system includes a convenient wireless receiver mounting plate.
