USB Expansion Adapter for Shoulder and Handheld Camcorders

Where to buy


CBK-DL1 is a USB interface expansion adapter with DC 12V input/output terminal and can be powered by camcorder or other external source. It enables additional network functions by doubling the number of USB connectors on applicable cameras. Network features include Dual Link QoS Streaming*, FTP transfer** using Content Brower Mobile and more.

* To use cellular Dual Link functionality with XDCAM air, please contact your Sony sales representative to enquire about an optional license. In countries where XDCAM air is not available, it is possible to stream directly to on-premise network RX stations PWS-100RX1, PWS-110RX1, and PWS-110RX1A with an optional license activated.
** FTP transfer uses a single cellular connection.
Please note CBK-DL1 does not include a cellular modem or USB wireless LAN module. A carrier use contract is necessary for data communication. For recommended cellular modems, please contact your Sony sales representative.
Recommended compatible camcorders include PXW-X500, PXW-X400, PXW-Z450, PXW-Z190, and PXW-Z280.
CBK-DL1 can be used with optional network adapters CBK-WA100 and CBK-WA101, which work with other Sony shoulder-mount products such as PMW-400, PXW-X320, PDW-850, PDW-700, PDW-F800, PDW-680, PMW-500, PMW-350, and PMW-320. CBK-DL1 is supplied with a mounting bracket for shoulder-mount camcorders, meaning no mounting accessories need to be purchased.
Handheld camcorders such as PXW-Z280, PXW-Z190, and PXW-X200 require 3rd party PROTECH mounting brackets to support the CBK-DL1. In addition, PXW-Z190 requires installation of an optional CBKZ-SLNW1 Network License key to enable networking functions.
