Batteries are a part of our everyday lives, from cell phones to laptops to cameras, and can be the cause of great irritation when they don’t work properly. But most people are unaware of the basics – How long do your batteries typically last and why? How do batteries work? Why don’t they work sometimes? As the experts in battery innovation and technology, Anton/Bauer will present the Battery Master Class. Aimed at educating NAB attendees about batteries and power supplies, the Battery Master Class will focus on the many different types of battery chemistries and the advantages/disadvantages of each, charging routines and voltage, getting the longest life from your battery and will conclude with a question and answer session.
Throughout the NAB Show, various Vitec Group brands will share the same Live Event Area stage and feature presentations from leading industry professionals, including Vincent Laforet (Monday, April 11, 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm), Vincent Laforet and Phillip Bloom (Monday, April 11, 3:30 pm – 4:00 pm), Phillip Bloom (Tuesday, April 12, 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm) and Michael Huss (Wednesday, April 13, 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm).
