ANTON/BAUER TO BOOST NAB CROWD WITH NEW TM4 QUICK BATTERY CHARGER

LAS VEGAS, NV, April 20, 2009 – Anton/Bauer, a brand of The Vitec Group, and the world’s premier provider of professional camera batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems, is debuting its advanced, fast charge TM4 battery charger at NAB 2009 (Booth C6021). antonbauer_tm4-charger.jpg

The TM4 is a four position, charge module-based, fast charger capable of handling the charging needs of up to four batteries simultaneously. The TM4 charges batteries up to two times faster than the Anton/Bauer TWQ charger, providing the end user with reliable battery backup power at all times. Also doubling as an AC power supply, the TM4 will power various equipment with a 70W supply via a 4-pin XLR. The power supply can be used simultaneously with the charger, allowing three batteries to be charged while operating from AC mains.

“For dealing with fast-breaking news stories, remote coverage of events and video production when the video camera must run from a battery, the engineers at Anton/Bauer created the TM4 to provide quick-turnaround battery charging,? says Michael Accardi, president of Anton/Bauer. “As modern video cameras are literally power-hungry computers with a lens attached, having a quick and reliable battery charging system increases user confidence by ensuring that abundant battery power is always ready for any capture situation.?

The TM4 will fully charge a Dionic 160 battery in 3.5 hours, a Dionic 90 in three hours, a HyTRON 100 or 140 in two hours, a ProPac Series in one hour, the HyTRON 50 in two hours, and one hour for the TRIMPAC Series. The TM4 offers a wide range input of 100-240 VAC 50/60 Hz and is CE approved. It also has an individual charge position status LED for each battery and the internal battery management software application can be updated from a remote location using a specialized USB-compatible programming cable.
