Product update... Swit Electronics is a high-tech enterprise that manufacture power solutions and accessories for the professional broadcast and video industry. Products include batteries and chargers, on-camera lights, monitors and more. Swit design and manufacture their products to the smallest detail and therefore the end result is a high performing, high quality product that can be relied upon by the professional user. Travel Safe Power Solutions The latest innovations from Swit are designed to solve the problem of travelling with Lithium Ion batteries. When you are shooting abroad, often to areas of unreliable DC power source, it is essential to have enough power to complete your shoot without any costly time delays. IATA Flight regulations restrict the size of battery that you can travel with to under 100Wh. Well, what if you need more? The newly designed S-8132S (126Wh) and S-8192S (184Wh) batteries are splittable into two sections that individually comply with the regulations. You simply detach the two halves before travelling and then re-attach when you arrive, and you now have high capacity V-Lock or Gold Mount batteries to use abroad. It is worth noting that there is a chip in the batteries that link the halves to each other, so you cannot mix and match the individual halves. DV Batteries Swit also manufacture a reliable, tried and tested alternative to manufacturer own brand batteries. With an already comprehensive range of solutions for cameras from Sony, Canon, JVC and Panasonic, there are two new additions to the line up. The S-8U63 is a fully compatible alternative for the Sony PMW- EX range. The battery features a Pole Jack and DC output terminal for powering and charging accessories, and gives full battery life information on the LCD of the camera. The S-8I50 works with the very popular JVC GY-HM600 and GY- HM650 camcorders. There is also a Pole Jack and USB output on this battery, and a dual channel charger the S-3602I. The new batteries are shipping now and are available through any authorised Swit reseller, or www.swit.co.uk 56 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 78 JUNE 2013 TV-BAY078JUN13.indd 56 10/06/2013 15:16
