Anton/Bauer Unveils New QR-HotSwap-AR Gold Mount for the ARRI ALEXA

Exclusive Communication Available Only with the QR-Hotswap-AR

SHELTON, CTAnton/Bauer, a brand of The Vitec Group, and the world’s premier provider of batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries, continues to add to its offerings of superior Gold-Mount® solutions with the introduction of the QR-HotSwap-AR Gold Mount® for the ARRI ALEXA digital camera system. anton_bauer_qr-hotswap_ar.jpg

Providing a secure snap-on approach to keep the battery in place from any position, the Gold Mount provides three solid mechanical connections that “lock? into place, providing secure contact for a steady stream of uninterrupted power, and self-cleaning gold-plated pins rated for high-current. The QR-HotSwap-AR allows for either two DIONIC HC or DIONIC HCX batteries for seamless hot swapping and longer run-times. Exclusive communication, available only with the QR-Hotswap-AR, shows the combined batteries’ remaining run-time via the InterActive® Viewfinder Fuel Gauge which allows for communication directly to the camera’s viewfinder.

“When shooting on location with the ARRI ALEXA, one of the most sought after cameras in all of digital cinema, the last thing Anton/Bauer’s Gold Mount users will have to worry about is a power failure because of a bad battery connection,? says Shin Minowa, vice president of marketing and business development. “The Anton/Bauer Gold Mount System is the most widely used battery mounting system in the industry and is available as factory standard equipment on many cameras from such manufacturers as Grass Valley, Hitachi, Ikegami, JVC and Canon.?

The Gold Mount provides an interchangeable battery system using a forward compatible approach originally developed by Anton/Bauer. This system allows for new cell chemistries as they are developed, allowing a battery introduced today to perform seamlessly on a current charger purchased 10 years ago, with only a simple firmware upgrade.
