Anton/Bauer Exhibits at 2013 Mediatech Africa

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA, JULY 15, 2013Anton/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, film and healthcare technology industries, will be on-site at the 2013Mediatech Africa exhibition (Vitec Videocom Stand A35). At the show, one of the largest gatherings for broadcast and media professionals in the world, the company will showcase its DIONIC® HD battery, Gold Spectrum™ Wireless Series, and Gold Mount® solutions for the industry’s newest cameras.

“We look forward to exhibiting with Vitec Videocom at Mediatech for the very first time as it has rapidly grown into one of the foremost technology trade shows in the industry,” says Chris O’Neill, vice president of product management and marketing, Anton/Bauer. “Attendees will have the opportunity to experience our field-proven products at this exhibition, whether they are seeking solutions for the latest cameras, live event production tools or virtually any other type of equipment requiring power to support the broadcast production process.”

Anton/Bauer will demonstrate its DIONIC HD Logic Series® battery, suitable for powering high-current digital cinema cameras such as the Sony F65 and F5/F55, RED, ARRI Alexa, Vision Research Phantom series and more in a lightweight and robust package. The DIONIC HD is a 183 Wh Li-Ion battery that incorporates sixth-generation cell technology and the company’s latest software architecture. 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. The company’s patented RealTime® LCD ensures superior safety and reliability in the most extreme environmental conditions. It indicates both fuel gauge and remaining run-time data simultaneously, incorporating readouts of hours, minutes and remaining capacity.

The company will also introduce its Gold Spectrum™ Wireless Series to Mediatech attendees. A collaboration between Anton/Bauer and Vitec Group sister company Integrated Microwave Technologies, LLC (IMT), Anton/Bauer’s Gold Spectrum Series encompasses the AB-HDRF Kit and the AB Direct VU handheld receiver/monitor. The size of each component within the series (AB-HDTX, AB-HDRX and AB Direct VU), makes it ideal for reality TV, ENG/EFP, OB and live event coverage and the entire series is powered by Anton/Bauer batteries.

To help provide secure connections for the latest Sony and JVC cameras, Anton/Bauer will showcase its new QRC-4K-S and QRC-HM-JGold Mount solutions. Anton/Bauer’s QRC-4K-S Gold Mount attaches instantly to Sony PMW-F5 and Sony PMW-F55 Cine Alta cameras to accept Anton/Bauer batteries, offering consistent and reliable power. It contains three PowerTap® outputs for powering additional accessories, helping professionals bring 4K productions to life. The QRC-4K-S is also compatible with the Sony AXS-R5 recorder. The QRC-HM-J Gold Mount is a pouch-style 7/14 adapter for the JVC GY-HM600/650U handheld cameras. The QRC-HM-J connects via the DC power input and maintains the system’s portability while providing two PowerTap outputs for accessories. The QRC-HM-J can be mounted to Anton/Bauer’s MATRIX Cheese Plate when using rails.
