GREENSBORO, NC, NOVEMBER 15, 2012-As a broadcast veteran and co-founder of the video production company Deja View Media, Council Bradshaw has shot footage in plenty of out-of-the-way places for such clients as The History Channel, FOX Sports, Carnival Cruise Line, R.J. Reynolds and John Deere, among other well-known brands. On any given day, he and his production crew might shoot a commercial in the jungle or film a public service announcement in a crowded urban landscape-often situated far away from a studio or base camp. To ensure his cameras and monitors keep running during these situations, Bradshaw turns to 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, for all of his power solution needs.
"I've been in television since 1988, starting with NBC and, later, FOX," says Bradshaw. "One of the FOX stations I worked for used Anton/Bauer to power everything-so that is how I was first introduced to the company's batteries. Later, when we founded Deja View Media, we made sure from day one that all our cameras had Anton/Bauer batteries. It's our preferred package when it comes to portable power."
Bradshaw and his production crew primarily use Anton/Bauer DIONIC® 90 batteries and, to a lesser extent, HyTRON® 140s. They find the longevity and portability of the DIONIC 90 particularly handy for shooting in remote field locations, as the batteries give them enough power to shoot all morning or afternoon before needing a recharge.
