IBC News: Hawk-Woods to Debut Mini V-Lok

New flight-safe broadcast battery delivers up to 150wh and fits in the palm of a hand. 2017-08-17 22:30:00

Ashford, Kent, UNITED KINGDOM—Hawk-Woods, innovative developer of broadcast power solutions, today announces Mini V-Lok, a new ultra-small and lightweight addition to its V-Lok battery line.

The smallest battery of its type in the world to date, Mini V-Lok fits comfortably in the palm of a hand. It is flight-safe, available in two sizes, 100Wh and 150Wh, and capable of powering cameras, monitors, lights and other types of broadcast equipment. When used in tandem with an optional dual, hot-swappable adaptor, Mini V-Lok can deliver up to 300wh of power—double that of a standard V-Lok—in a device profile only fractionally larger.

Mini V-Lok was developed as an alternative to standard, travel-size batteries for power-hungry broadcast equipment. “Ordinary batteries have to be swapped out every hour or so,” explains Hawk-Woods sales manager Jason Stewart. “Mini V-Lok is also an improvement over stackable batteries that result in cameras carrying lots of dead weight.”

Hawk-Woods will be demonstrating Mini V-Lok for the first time at IBC 2017, Stand 8.A32. It will also showcase several other new and updated products:

VL-AS1 Is a new V-Lok fitting for Atomos monitors used with Shogun Flame and Inferno systems. The adaptor fits into the monitor’s original battery compartment and uses a dual, dummy MDV fitting to accommodate a V-Lok battery. It also includes two power-con outputs that are ideal for powering transmitter/receivers and other accessories. Shown for the first time ever at IBC will be VL-AS2, a V-Lok adaptor for the new 19” Atomos Sumo monitor.

In the United States, Hawk-Woods products are available through Manios Digital & Film.
