IDX Debuts Battery for RED ONE

IDX System Technology has introduced IDX REDEFINED, its first battery system for the RED ONE camera.

The system includes IDX’s exclusive ELITE Smart Battery mode, which quickly activates protocol data. ELITE offers users a choice between using the battery in a standard configuration or the SB mode for tighter integration with the RED ONE system. Existing as well as new ELITE batteries are now usable with RED ONE.

In partnership with Element Technica, IDX has designed a new battery V-Mount plate specifically for the RED ONE camera. Model EL-BAPIDXA enables operators to view “live” battery life data by percentage in the RED ONE viewfinder.

The 136Wh high-capacity V-Mount batter system features a unique IDX twin power cartridge construction and multiple safety and protection features. When the batteries reach the end of life, new power cartridge pairs can be inserted into the original housing in less than 30 seconds.

ELITE lithium ion batters can be carried on board all national and international flights, including an unlimited number of ELITE cartridges (with minimal pre-flight preparation).

The system consists of two power packages centered on ELITE batteries along with the EL-BAPIDXA mounting plate customized with V-Mount and Lemo technology. Professionals have the option of either the high-performance quad charger VL-4S or dual charger/AC adaptor VL-2SPLUS. Additional variations of the mounting plate are available and can be purchased separately from Element Technica, LLC.

MSRP for the complete solutions from IDX start at $2,375 U.S. and are available at IDX dealers and distributors.
