Anton/Bauer expanded compact battery range
New range introduces dedicated mobile power solutions to run cameras, monitors, lights and more.
GTC sponsor Anton/Bauer, a leading manufacturer of mobile power solutions for broadcast and cinematic equipment, today announced the largest ever expansion to its range of powerful compact batteries with the introduction of Titon SL, Titon Micro, Titon Base and GO 90. The extended range adds to Anton/Bauer’s consistent and reliable power solutions to include smaller and slimmer batteries ideal for monitors, follow focus and on-camera lighting as well as pure power batteries designed for high-performance cine lights and specialist cameras.
“Anton/Bauer batteries have been the first-choice power option for camera operators in broadcast and cinematography since ABC TV cameraman, Anton Wilson and electronic engineer, George Bauer joined forces in 1970. Together they developed the world’s first camera mounted battery system – bringing a world of freedom and power to camera operators everywhere” says Chris Gaughan, Anton/Bauer product manager, Vitec Production Solutions. “Now, as we celebrate our half-century, we are announcing additions to our range that bring Anton/Bauer’s premium mobile power to almost every aspect of your set with solutions designed for cameras that are both smaller and more powerful as well as monitors, on camera lighting, large panel lighting and much more. A new range of more than 50 accessories also ensures that our V-Mount and Gold Mount® batteries are compatible with more devices than ever.”
To help camera operators, cinematographers and pro videographers find the best power solution for their equipment Anton/Bauer has also launched a web-based 'kit your camera' configurator that determines the power requirements of cameras and accessories to recommend the most appropriate battery.
