Anton/Bauer develops Pro Battery mount for JVC HDV camcorder
This specially designed Gold Mount supplies the proper regulated operating voltage to the JVC GY-HD100 camera while providing the ability to use standard 12V video accessories
Working closely with JVC, Anton/Bauer announced it has developed a professional battery system to meet the power and ergonomic needs of the new JVC GY-HD100 ProHD camcorder.
As the basis for this system, Anton/Bauer developed a Gold Mount for the GY-HD100. This specially designed Gold Mount supplies the proper regulated operating voltage to the GY-HD100 camera while providing the ability to use standard 12V video accessories such as on-camera lighting —all powered from the same high performance battery.
The mount also features a real-time interface to the camera, which JVC employs to display the battery’s remaining runtime in hours and minutes directly in the viewfinder of the camera. Mounting directly to the battery “box” and mechanically secured to the camera body, the QR-JVC7/14HDV allows Anton/Bauer batteries to be used to extend the runtime of the camera and to power accessories that would otherwise have required additional batteries.
A single Anton/Bauer Dionic 90 will operate the camera for up to five hours. A HyTRON 120 can provide similar runtime with a light and accessories —a single battery for virtually all day professional shooting.
The combination of Anton/Bauer batteries and the ability to attach other accessories enhances the operating features and performance of the camera and can serve to counter balance the lens weight.
