IBC 2015: Anton Bauer is announcing a new Cine battery series for digital cinema cameras.
The new Cine series delivers 12 amps of continuous power and incorporates Fuse Link technology, which provides protection to surrounding battery cells, in the case of a cell anomaly, preventing catastrophic damage. The battery line also features multiple sensors to detect temperature and over-current states.
The Cine battery is designed for cine-style cameras, such as the Arri Alexa Mini and Red Weapon and functions on all existing Anton/Bauer chargers.
The Cine battery series also includes a PowerTap to power auxiliary accessories such as monitors, lights, wireless receivers, and any other 14V accessory.
The Cine series also includes an LCD screen that provides users with accurate run-time information in hours and minutes. When the battery is detached, the display will show battery life as a percentage of capacity, allowing the user to track usage.
The Cine series will be available in 90 Wh and 150 Wh in both Gold Mount and V-Mount connectors. A 190 Wh option will be available in 2016.
“The Cine battery series exemplifies Anton/Bauer’s dedication to producing the world’s safest, smartest, and most reliable power systems for professional cinematographers,” said Anton/Bauer product manager Neal Laneville.
“We spent a lot of time taking feedback from our customers and integrating it into the design of the new CINE series.
“The result is a battery series that combines our ground breaking safety technologies with a completely redesigned chassis built just for cinematographers. It’s a bespoke solution for the most demanding professionals.”
