Anton Bauer Powers Nexstar ENG
Nexstar Broadcasting Group is making a group lead purchase this year of Anton/Bauer gear from AZCAR Digital Products, a division of AZCAR, to power more than 70 Panasonic P2 HD cameras for nine of its stations. Anton/Bauer is currently in use at other Nexstar stations.

“The addition of the Anton/Bauer Tandem-70 charger/power supplies allows fast charging of the batteries and a reduction in the amount of gear carried by each videographer. Additionally, the Anton/Bauer batteries have unique characteristics that interact with the operation of the Panasonic HPX-500 cameras,” said Rick Stople, Nexstar Broadcasting Group director of engineering.

The Anton/Bauer UltraLight 2 was also selected as standard equipment for the Panasonic HPX-500 cameras. In addition, Anton/Bauer’s ElipZ battery and ElightZ on-camera light system will be used for the Panasonic HPX-200 P2 HD cameras. In total, Nexstar is purchasing more than Anton Bauer 100 Dionic-90 and ElipZ batteries, 70 chargers and 70 lights.

Among the nine stations benefiting from the Anton/Bauer purchase are: KARK-TV in Little Rock AR; KODE-TV and KSNF-TV in Joplin, MO; WFXW-TV in Terre Haute, IN; WCUA-TV in Champaign, IL; KNWA-TV in Fayetteville, AR; WQRF-TV in Rockland, IL; and WBRE-TV and WYOU-TV Wilkes Barre, PA.
