Petrol Bags, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, announces that it will be premiering new audio and camera bags and accessories at 2013 NAB, April 8-11 at the LVCC in booth #C6432.

Due to the enormous success of Petrol Bags’ sound equipment carriers, the company introduces the Deca Large Lightweight Audio Bag (PS617) that is optimally designed for soundmen who use the Sound Devices 664 mixer, with or without the CL6 Controller. Ready to work with the user, this wearable carrier offers the ideal combination of user comfort, safety, equipment organization, and practicality in the field. Within the bag, the mixer and controller are fully accessible and readouts are easily viewable. It offers a roomy, cushioned main compartment to safeguard delicate equipment. The standard removable internal divider accommodates the 664 Mixer and attached CL6 Controller, while offering easy access to the unit’s XLR connectors.

Just when it seems there is nothing new in backpack technology, Petrol Bags introduces the new Deca Airflow Camera Backpack (PC306). The new backpack system features a rainbow shape to allow air flow- through to enhance comfort. Ideal for small cameras up to the Sony PMW-200 size, this no-hands carrier offers a special pocket for a 17” laptop and accessories. The main compartment has a run around heavy-duty zipper for easy camera access. Other smart features include sternum strap and padded waist straps for wearer comfort and security and exterior pockets for extra storage.

For easy transport, quick access and superior-protection, there’s the new Deca Camera and Accessories Bag (PA1000).
