(May 11, 2009) At the NAB 2009 convention, Petrol, a Vitec group brand, once again proved that in this day of high tech gadgetry sometimes the simplest innovation is the best. Visitors to the busy NAB booth murmured, “Why didn't I think of that?” when they saw the demonstration of the new Petrol Inflatable Airline Bag.

Numerous prestigious broadcast and video trade publications surprised the Petrol team with awards. The Inflatable Airline Bag took home TV Technology's STAR, DV Magazine's Best of Show Black Diamond Award, Videography's Best of Show Vidy and Digital Cinema Report named it one its Top Products of NAB 2009.

Created specifically for boarding a plane with a full-size broadcast camera, the duffle-style carrier stores in a handy zippered nylon pouch for hassle-free transportation through airline security and easy boarding. This frees the traveler to get through the boarding process with the camera in hand. Once on-board, the passenger inserts the camera inside the duffle and simply blows into a tube filling the bag's internal inflation system. The camera is insantly surrounded by a firm, protective cushion of air, ready to be safely stored in the airplane's overhead compartment. Gone are the days of searching the cabin for a pile of pillows and blankets to cushion valuable gear.
