At Cine Gear, Anton/Bauer will showcase the new MATRIX Cheese Plate, a new mounting plate that can be used with the company’s Gold Mount® Solutions for the Sony PMW-F3 camera; Canon EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 7D and EOS 60D Digital SLR cameras; Panasonic AG-AF100 series professional HD camera and the RED EPIC. Additionally, Anton/Bauer will display the recently introduced QR-HotSwap-AR Gold Mount® for the ARRI ALEXA digital camera system.

“Anton/Bauer offers the most reliable and secure power solutions and accessories for the industry’s top cameras,? says Shin Minowa, vice president of marketing and business development. “At Cine Gear, we will showcase our commitment to bringing innovative products to market for today’s cameramen.?

The MATRIX Cheese Plate mounting bracket is for 15mm or 19mm rod systems (15mm or 19mm clamp kits sold separately), to be used with Gold Mounts for:
• QRC-DUAL PT – Gold Mount with 4-pin XLR and two PowerTap® outputs for the Sony F3. Also mounts directly to the AJA Ki Pro Mini as well as many manufacturers’ “cheese plates.?
• QR-DLSR – 7/14 Gold Mount for Canon 5D, 7D and 60D.
• QR-VBG – 7/14 Gold Mount adapter for the Panasonic AG-AF100.
• QRC-EPIC –Gold Mount for Red EPIC with two auxiliary PowerTap® connectors, and power cable with 6p LEMO power connector.

These Gold Mount solutions can also be used on support rigs such as Cinevate, Shape, Redrock Micro and Genus, among others, or with a pouch.

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 LCD. anton_bauer_qr-hotswap_ar.jpg

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.
