Anton/Bauer’s DIONIC HD Battery to Make NAB Debut


New Lithium-Ion Battery Offers Unrivalled Capacity, Longer Cycle Life and Updated RealTime Display

 

LAS VEGAS, MARCH 14, 2013—Anton/Bauer®, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, and a premier global provider of batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries, is pleased to make the formal introduction of its newest lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery, the DIONIC® HD, for broadcast and digital media professionals at the 2013 NAB Show (Vitec Videocom Booth C6025). Part of the company’s Logic Series® of batteries, the DIONIC HD powers high-current applications in a lightweight and robust package, making it ideal for digital cinema cameras such as the Sony F65, RED cameras, ARRI Alexa, the Vision Research Phantom series and more.

Delivering up to 10 amps of power, the DIONIC HD is a 183Wh battery featuring special-application Li-Ion cell technology. Employing sixth-generation cell technology, the DIONIC HD incorporates the company’s latest software architecture and an improved LCD for superior safety and reliability in the most extreme environmental conditions. Weighing 40 percent less than a NiCad or NiMH battery, the DIONIC HD has 25 percent more capacity and will run a 30-watt camera, monitors and multiple accessories for more than six hours.

“We created the DIONIC HD to help our customers meet the growing power demands of the latest digital cameras,” says Chris O’Neill, vice president of product management and marketing, Anton/Bauer. “Designed from the most innovative Lithium-Ion cell technologies, it provides unrivaled capacities and a longer cycle life, with an extended warranty of three years.”

The DIONIC HD also includes the company’s new enhanced RealTime® display. Simple and easy to understand, the display indicates both fuel gauge and remaining run-time data simultaneously, without requiring any setup. The display incorporates readouts of hours, minutes and remaining capacity, making battery change decisions quick and easy. What’s more, its motion-detection feature incorporates a sleep-mode setting that reduces battery self-discharge, allowing for extended periods of storage with minimal capacity loss. The battery can be “awakened” by the built-in motion sensor. These patented features offer confidence for the camera operator.
