Anton/Bauer part of the Vitec Group, will demonstrate products from Sony, Canon, Panasonic, Red and Arri at CABSAT.
The provider of batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries will feature high-capacity DIONIC® HC and DIONIC HCX batteries suitable for airline travel, and the versatile MATRIX Cheese Plate, usable with a variety of Gold Mount® Solutions for the Sony F3 and NEX-FS-100, Canon 5D, 7D and 60D, Panasonic AG-AF100 and RED EPIC cameras.
Part of the Logic Series, the DIONIC HC series was designed to handle the demands of todays power hungry equipment utilising advanced lightweight, high current and high capacity, lithium ion cells. The HC series also utilises a honeycomb design to protect cells from puncture and minimise damage in the event of failure. Both the DIONIC HC and DIONIC HCX can travel as carry-on luggage, as well as checked baggage (see www.antonbauer.com for travel information). To provide precise run-time data and superior reliability, the DIONIC HX and DIONIC HCX provide an enhanced RealTime LCD fuel gauge to display up to nine hours of run-time (under low power load conditions) using a seven-segment display enclosed by four circular arcs that indicate 15-minute time intervals.
The 91 watt-hour DIONIC HC sustains a 10 amp draw and can operate a 40-watt HD camera for more than two hours. The latest addition to the high-current product line, the DIONIC HCX is a 124 watt-hour capacity battery with the ability to sustain a 10-amp draw, and run a 40-watt camera with a 20-watt light for two hours. Its motion detection feature incorporates a deep sleep setting that reduces battery self-discharge, allowing for extended periods of storage with minimal capacity loss. The battery can be awakened by the built-in motion sensor.
The new MATRIX Cheese Plate mounts directly on 15-mm or 19-mm rod systems, allowing for easy mounting for Gold Mounts on a variety of cameras including:
Sony F3 QRC-DUAL PT Gold Mount with four-pin XLR and two PowerTap® outputs for the Sony F3. Also mounts directly to the AJA Ki Pro Mini.
Sony NEX-FS-100 FGM-S 7 1/4 Gold Mount
Canon 5D, 7D and 60D QR-DLSR 7 1/4 Gold Mount
Panasonic AG-AF100 QR-VBG 7 1/4 Gold Mount adapter
Red EPIC QRC-EPIC Exclusive features include three outputs: a hard-wired cabled six-pin LEMO connector for power as well as two PowerTap® connectors for accessories.
These Gold Mount solutions can also be used on support rigs such as Cinevate, Shape, Redrock Micro and Genus, among others, and in some cases, a pouch (the QR-PD/HDV is recommended for the Sony NEX-FS-100 in a pouch configuration).
