• The MATRIX Cheese Plate –
A new mounting plate that can be used with the company’s Gold Mount Solutions. Anton/Bauer’s Gold Mount solutions create the most secure battery connection in the industry, providing seamless power and future compatibility. The MATRIX Cheese Plate mounts directly on 15-mm or 19-mm rod systems, to allow for easy mounting on a variety of cameras including:
o Sony F3 – QRC-DUAL PT Gold Mount with four-pin XLR and two PowerTap® outputs. Also mounts directly to the AJA Ki Pro Mini.
o Canon 5D, 7D and 60D – QR-DSLR 7/14 Gold Mount. Provides 7.2-v power to the camera via the Canon DR-E6 Coupler and 14.4-v power via the PowerTap for accessories such as the Ultralight2, on-board monitors and external hard drives. Offering excellent counter balance, the QR-DSLR can mount to most third-party support rigs, such as Redrock Genus, Micro, Zacuto, Cinevate and others.
o RED EPIC – QRC-EPIC Gold Mount. Features three outputs—a hard-wired cabled six-pin LEMO connector for power as well as two PowerTap connectors for accessories.
o Panasonic AG-AF100 – QR-VBG 7/14 Gold Mount adapter.
o Sony NEX-FS-100 – FGM-S – 7/14 Gold Mount.
• Tandem 150 Modular Power System with Solar Panel –
The smallest and lightest charger and on-camera power supply available on the market, the Tandem 150 provides ultimate flexibility for shoots in isolated areas, offering two unique methods of charging for any Logic Series® battery. Crews working out of their cars can simply use the CA-TMCL, the smallest portable car charger on the market, with their dependable vehicle AC power outlet. The CA-TMCL does not require an inverter. The battery simply snaps on the QR-TM bracket, which plugs into the vehicle’s power outlet. When operated from the AC mains at 100 to 240 volts AC or 50 to 60 Hz, the Tandem 150 (via the QR-TM bracket and PSU-150 power supply) is a fully automatic system that can simultaneously charge a battery and power a camera. If a 75-watt draw is exceeded, the system will automatically stop charging and perform solely as a 150-watt power supply. The Tandem 150 is also the only on-camera A/C power supply over 100 watts without a fan. When the load is reduced below 75 watts, the QR-TM instantly resumes normal operation, as a simultaneous charger/power supply system.
In addition, for productions where sunlight is available, crews can charge batteries with the award-winning Anton/Bauer Solar Panel. The Solar Panel is a flexible power option for the Tandem 150 and uses direct sunlight as an alternate power source. Users can simply snap a Logic Series battery on the QR-TM bracket and attach the bracket to the solar panel.
is a dual voltage accessory that bridges the video and film worlds. Using four of the same Logic Series batteries, the QBH-HD simultaneously outputs both 14.4 volts via three 4-pin XLRs and 28.8 volts using one single 2-pin Amphenol output. The 28-volt output can handle HMI lighting and most film cameras. In production environments where extended run-times and high-current draws up to 10 amps are required, the QBH-HD is an ideal Gold Mount holder.
• DIONIC HCX
is the company’s latest addition to its successful high-current DIONIC series. Working closely with top cell manufacturers, Anton/Bauer developed the DIONIC HCX to incorporate a honey comb cell pack design for Li-Ion cell safety, performance integrity and high current draws of up to 10 amps. Offering a 124-watt-hour battery capacity and a unique motion detection sensor, the DIONIC HCX will automatically go into “sleep mode” after a two-day period without a load, significantly reducing self-discharge and allowing extended storage and battery life with nearly zero capacity loss. To “awaken” the battery users need only to move the battery or attach it to a device. The DIONIC HCX is perfect for crews traveling on-location, as up to two batteries attached to a device per passenger can be carried onboard*.
To provide precise run-time data for added confidence, the DIONIC HCX has an enhanced LCD RealTime® fuel gauge, which has been incorporated 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.
