16x9 Introduces New Attachment for V-Mount Power Supplies

16x9 Inc. has introduced Bebob Box-VM, an attachment that holds a V-Mount power supply onboard a camera.

Similar in design to the Box-FS and Box-HVR carriers, this system attaches to the baseplate of the Panasonic HVX-200 and other compact HDV cameras, and is designed to hold an IDX V-Mount battery such as the Endura 7 or Endura 7S. The 14.4 V battery power can be supplied directly or converted to 8.4 V and is distributed to the system’s 1-D-Tap and 3 Hirose 4-pin outputs.

The Box-VM also features an additional dimmable D-Tap for powering a camera light. Box-VM can serve as a voltage/power adapter between the battery, and the camera and its accessories. The 3 Hirose 4-pin connectors deliver 8.4 V/12 V for the camera’s power supply and/or the wireless microphone receiver.
