Anton/Bauer Invites Attendees to Walk the Red Carpet and Celebrate Academy Award Win at the 2013 NAB Show

LAS VEGAS, MARCH 21, 2013—At the 2013 NAB Show, Anton/Bauer® invites attendees to visit its booth (Vitec Videocom Booth C6025) to see the Academy Award®-winning CINE VCLX Portable Power System and get a glimpse of the Academy Plaque the company recently won for its contribution to the industry. 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, recently took home the prestigious Scientific and Engineering Award (Academy Plaque) from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (A.M.P.A.S®) for the design and conception of its CINE VCLX Portable Power System. Anton/Bauer Engineers Joe Murtha, William Frederick and Jim Markland accepted the prestigious award for their roles in the creation of the CINE VCLX.

A.M.P.A.S® Scientific and Technical Awards honor those technologies and solutions that have demonstrated a proven record of contributing significant value to the process of making motion pictures. Understanding the unique needs of film and digital cinema production, Anton/Bauer designed the CINE VCLX power system to provide ultimate power performance, extended run times and flexibility. Solving a common production dilemma, the CINE VCLX series allows users to power cameras, as well as the supplementary equipment, such as lighting, required for production. Thanks to the safety and high-power-draw performance of the Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) cell chemistry technology found in the CINE VCLX series, it can handle the specific needs of 24V film, 14V video and 28V digital cinema equipment and their associated accessories. Anton/Bauer CINE batteries also feature a RealTime® LCD that accurately displays remaining run time and a visual LED warning indicator, which is activated when 15 minutes of run time remain.

“Taking home the Academy Award® was a significant milestone for Anton/Bauer, as recognition from A.M.P.A.S. confirms our achievement in creating solutions that are not only specific to the needs of our end users, but also improve their workflows. The CINE VCLX Portable Power System does exactly that,” says Dan Fitzpatrick, general manager, Anton/Bauer. “We invite long-time and new users alike to stop by the booth, see the Academy Plaque and get a closer look at the CINE VCLX itself. Over the years it has become an industry standard, powerful enough to safely and reliably run cameras such as the ARRI® ALEXA for more than four hours, while also powering 200W HMI lights, LED panels and portable microwave units.”
