Anyone else see the Companion @ NAB? Sony had it under glass. It is a harddrive much like the P2 Store where you insert the SxS card to copy the files over. I was wondering if anyone has heard anything else about it like release date and harddrive size

60GB and I thought I heard Q3. Some people complained that 60GB was too small. It has SxS adaptor and I think one must actually hook that up to record from camera or copy from card in the other slot.

The one I am talking about was different from the 60 gb drive. That one you could hook up to the camera. The Companion was hidden away in a box by itself that was for offloading files only

I haven't seen it any Sony press release and no one I know of who went to NAB mentioned it. If it is in such an early stage that Sony didn't even show a mock up I have to wonder how far off or if ever such a device will happen.

Please present how you know of such a box and show any evidence of it's planning. You may well have seen such a box but apparently it wasn't close enough to reality for anyone to to tout.

I was there with Mark and its was under glass in the XDCAM section of the booth. Its a rather large box like the FlashXDR box. I know it was just a development thing right now... but Sony did say this would be something available late summer.

We were just hoping if someone else knew anything about it.

I can't find anything about it with Google search in any press release or even poking around blogs. You'd think somebody somewhere would have mentioned it in an "odd thing I saw in the corner of the Sony booth" type of comment.
