SHELTON, CT, OCTOBER 18, 2012-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, is pleased to announce its QRC-BMD Gold Mount® solution for the new Blackmagic Design EF (Electro-Focus) and MFT (Micro Four Thirds) Cinema Cameras. Anton/Bauer's latest introduction further highlights the company's dedication to providing innovative portable power solutions.
Designed for the ever-evolving needs of today's cinema and television production professionals, the Blackmagic EF and MFT Cinema Cameras come with an LCD touch screen and feature a 2.5K image sensor with wide, 13 stops of dynamic range, a built-in SSD recorder, open-standard uncompressed RAW and compressed file formats, and, depending on the model, compatibility with quality EF or passive MFT lenses. As the Blackmagic EF and MFT Cinema Cameras are equipped with internal batteries that last up to 90 minutes, Anton/Bauer developed the new QRC-BMD Gold Mount to provide users with virtually uninterrupted power. When paired with a battery, such as Anton/Bauer's DIONIC® HC, the QRC-BMD can provide the camera with 91Wh of power for four hours. The new Gold Mount has also been designed to include Anton/Bauer's MATRIX Cheese Plate and two PowerTap outlets to power additional accessories easily.
"Anton/Bauer's QRC-BMD essentially gives Blackmagic Cinema Camera users a ‘swappable' power solution to ensure the camera is continuously powered and ready for filming at all times," says Paul Dudeck, Anton/Bauer vice president of sales, the Americas.
