Anton/Bauer Intros New Power Solution for MacBook at Createasphere Expo
Anton/Bauer (a brand of The Vitec Group) will introduce its new QRC-MBPA power solution for the MacBook at Createasphere Entertainment Technology Expo (Booth 318). In addition, the company will showcase the QR-DSLR power solution for the Canon EOS 60D, EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 7D Digital SLR cameras and the DIONIC HCX 120 watt-hour capacity battery featuring a brand new motion detection sensor that protects against capacity loss.
The QRC-MBPA Gold Mount power solution works with MacBook laptops using the Magsafe power adapter (sold separately). The QRC-MBPA eliminates the need to purchase or carry additional extended life batteries for the MacBook and can be used with existing Anton/Bauer inventory. In addition, it provides longer run-times when operating high-power demand programs such as Final Cut and seamlessly switches to the internal battery with no loss of data when an Anton/Bauer battery is depleted.
Anton/Bauer is targeting cinematographers that use Digital SLR cameras with its QR-DSLR Gold Mount power solution for the Canon EOS 60D, EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 7D Digital SLR cameras. The QR-DSLR provides 7.2V power to the camera via the Canon DR-E6 DC coupler, while the PowerTap provides power for 12V accessories such as monitors, lights, transmitters and other accessories not possible with a standard OEM battery. In addition, it can be worn as a pouch pack or attached to many third-party shoulder support systems, including the Redrock Micro, Cinevate, Shape and Zacuto.
The DIONIC HCX High-Current Battery is the company’s latest addition to its DIONIC series high-current battery line and offers a 120 watt-hour battery capacity and a new motion detection sensor that protects against capacity loss. The DIONIC als features a built-in motion detection sensor. After a two-day period without a load, the DIONIC HCX automatically goes into “deep sleep,” significantly reducing self-discharge and allowing extended storage with nearly zero capacity loss. To “awaken” the battery for normal use, customers need only move the battery, thus activating the motion detection feature. This new motion detection feature significantly increases the overall life of the battery by mitigating lithium-ion battery self-discharge when the battery is not in use.
