Part of Anton/Bauer’s Logic Series® of batteries, the DIONIC HC and HCX offers 91Wh and 124Wh, respectively. Both are suitable for powering high-current applications in a lightweight package and can be easily transported as carry-on luggage without restrictions, making them ideal for shooting on location. Working closely with leading cell manufacturers, the HC series incorporates high-capacity cells, offering up to 10 amps of power draw.

HyTRON 140

Thanks to its portability and stamina the HyTRON 140 is an ideal power solution for those utilizing high-definition cameras and accessories, such as on-camera lighting. It provides up to up to four hours of run-time and offsets the heavy weight of the camera lenses, making it a perfect choice for high-demand productions. As with all Anton/Bauer batteries (including the previously mentioned DIONIC HC and HCX), the HyTRON 140 features an enhanced RealTime® display that indicates both fuel gauge and remaining run-time data simultaneously. The display incorporates readouts of hours, minutes and remaining capacity, making battery change decisions quick and easy.

Gold Spectrum™ Wireless Series

Anton/Bauer’s Gold Spectrum Wireless Series encompasses the AB-HDRF Kit and the AB Direct VU handheld receiver/monitor that with Anton/Bauer batteries powering the entire series. As a complete system, when used together, the AB-HDTX transmitter wirelessly sends its signal directly to the AB Direct VU or the AB-HDRX dual-diversity receiver. It offers an RF output of 100 mW and is capable of accepting a wide range of HD/SD video formats along with embedded audio from the HD-SDI output on the camera. The use of MPEG-4 compression allows the signal to travel a half-mile in line-of-site applications. This setup offers users the flexibility to choose between 12 different channels in which to transmit, ensuring the least amount of interference. This allows multiple cameras to transmit to one central receive site. The size of each component within the series (AB-HDTX, AB-HDRX and AB Direct VU), makes it ideally suited for reality TV, ENG/EFP, OB and live event coverage.
