IBC 2017: Hawk-Woods to debut Mini V-Lok
Small battery, Mini V-Lok can deliver up to 300wh of power, double that of a standard V-Lok, in a device profile only fractionally larger. Hawk-Woods, developer of broadcast power solutions, has announced Mini V-Lok, a new ultra-small and lightweight addition to its V-Lok battery line.
Mini V-Lok was developed as an alternative to standard, travel-size batteries for power-hungry broadcast equipment. “Ordinary batteries have to be swapped out every hour or so,” explained Hawk-Woods sales manager Jason Stewart. “Mini V-Lok is also an improvement over stackable batteries that result in cameras carrying lots of dead weight.”
Hawk-Woods will be demonstrating Mini V-Lok for the first time at IBC 2017, stand 8.A32. It will also showcase several other new and updated products. VL-AS1 Is a new V-Lok fitting for Atomos monitors used with Shogun Flame and Inferno systems. The adaptor fits into the monitor’s original battery compartment and uses a dual, dummy MDV fitting to accommodate a V-Lok battery. It also includes two power-con outputs that are ideal for powering transmitter/receivers and other accessories. Shown for the first time ever at IBC will be VL-AS2, a V-Lok adaptor for the new 19” Atomos Sumo monitor.
