Sachtler NAB Booth #C6025 New Lines are Uniquely Optimized to Power Today's Cameras and Auxiliary Equipment ECHING, GERMANY - Sachtler®, a Vitec Group brand and world leading producer of camera support equipment, will introduce its new V-Mount Digital Battery Series and Fast Charger Series at NAB 2014. The high performance V-Mount Digital Battery Series enhances Sachtler's industry leading roster of products with a battery line optimized specifically to power the digital cameras now being used for broadcast, cinema, and new media production. The Fast Charger Series supports the V-mount battery with a new algorithm that ensures the fastest available charging sequence while delivering superior energy efficiency. Sachtler will unveil these innovative lines at their exhibit (booth #C6025) at NAB 2014 in Las Vegas, which runs April 7-10. The V-Mount Digital Batteries eliminate the negative effects incurred when running digital technology with traditional battery circuitry. Powered by award-winning Anton/Bauer technology, the batteries contain a proprietary digital filter that increases run-time and lengthens life cycle, all while providing world-class levels of safety, performance and reliability. Delivered with a sleek, ergonomic, modern style, the series will include three battery sizes. The 90 Wh model is the ideal choice when weight is an issue, and it has no travel restrictions. The 150 Wh and 190 Wh versions are perfect for use by professional videographers with power-hungry cameras and a range of auxiliary equipment to support. Sachtler's V-Mount Digital Battery Series features an easy to read fuel gauge and utilizes constant calibration to deliver a power status that is truly accurate. When the battery is attached to a load, it conveniently reports the remaining run-time in hours and minutes, allowing the user to track usage effortlessly. When the load varies, the run-time will update accordingly. If the battery is not attached to a load, the gauge reflects the battery charge as a percentage of capacity. The digital batteries also have a convenient D-Tap plug, ideal for powering a range of 14V camera accessories, including monitors, lights, and wireless receivers. The Fast Charger Series utilizes innovative technology to deliver the fastest possible charging sequence, while exceeding the high-efficiency standards required by today's rigorous shooting schedules.

Software constantly monitors the charge/discharge process to ensure that each battery is charged to its peak performance. The Fast Charger series is nearly 40% more efficient than traditional chargers, conserving energy, rendering large power supplies virtually obsolete, and reducing cost of ownership. The chargers are easy to carry and feature a contemporary, mold-breaking design. The Fast Charger series automatically detects which battery has the strongest charge and prioritizes it, ensuring that a fully charged battery is always available in the shortest amount of time possible. The new Sachtler charger series also has an easy to use LCD touch screen to drive activity and monitor status. "We identified a need in the market for a high-performing V-mount power system," says Barbara Jaumann, Sachtler product manager.

"We're very pleased to be debuting battery and charger systems at NAB that were truly conceived to power the digital age. The Digital Battery Series is uniquely optimized for today's cameras, as well as all of the auxiliary equipment now being powered around a camera, and the Performance Charger series is both the 'greenest' and most efficient charger on the market. At Anton/Bauer, we pride ourselves on not only delivering the highest levels of quality and performance, but of safety as well. These batteries were extensively tested to meet the most demanding conditions and are specially engineered to encompass numerous safety features." Anton/Bauer's Lithium-Ion Digital Batteries are the safest on the market. From an electrical viewpoint, the batteries contain sensors that consistently check temperature and current, shutting the battery off if any rise in temperature or increase in current is detected. From a physical perspective, the batteries are designed to ensure that every cell in a pack stands alone, with 2 millimeters of space in between and air circulation corridors to prevent overheating. This is achieved with a unique, plastic honeycomb that creates an individual housing for each cell. With a high-impact resistant plastic molding, a double skin, and no danger of cells touching each other, thermal transfer is minimized should a battery be dropped or crushed in any way. The high performance, competitively priced Digital Battery Series and Performance Charger Series will be available to the marketplace in the second quarter of 2014.
