Battery power Carrying large batteries and chargers and multiple ones for different devices will be a thing of the past according to Atomos after the company introduced Power Station at NAB. Delivering continuous power for up to fi ve devices as well as fast battery charging in a compact design, this new product uses patent pending Continuous Power dual battery technology, allowing users to hot swap batteries on the fl y without interrupting power to their devices. Jeromy Young, chief executive and founder of Atomos, said: “The Power Station is the Anton Bauer for the masses, solving the biggest hassle on set: running out of power. We have also added one of the fastest dual battery chargers in the industry all in one device.” Power Station consists of two batteries mounted side-by-side that operate together using a continuous circular power system. When one battery gets low it can be removed and charged while the system switches across to the second battery uninterrupted. www.atomos.com At NAB MultiDyne showed a portable power source system for camera operators working in the fi eld solo or those that are located far away from a mobile production truck or other AC power source. The battery backup system, available as a standalone external battery pack, rack-mountable battery enclosure, or fully integrated into a MultiDyne SMPTE-HUT system, was co-developed by MultiDyne and Connexion Design. It uses an industry- standard Anton Bauer or “V-lock” mount to accommodate a variety of popular professional batteries that can be easily swapped out in the fi eld. The company also announced an expansion of its line up of SMPTE-HUT universal transceivers. The MultiDyne GV HUT is designed specifi cally to work with Grass Valley high-defi nition and 4K cameras. Location Audio At NAB 2015 JoeCo was showing its new BlackBox BBR1MP Recorder. Designed for location use, the 1U 24-channel recorder has 24 integrated, high-quality, microphone preamps operating at up to 24bit/96kHz. The unit offers a range of connection options including individually switchable mic/line inputs, balanced outputs, video sync, time code and word clock inputs, plus optional MADI or Dante interfaces. Audio is captured directly to external USB2/3 drive or memory stick (BWAV fi les) for instant ingest into post production. Microphones can either be connected directly to the recorder, or via an optional 2U breakout panel to provide XLR inputs on a location cart. The BBR1MP can create a stereo mix-down alongside the multi-channel recording. Full support for iXML data is provided. The BBR1MP utilises JoeCoRemote for iPad as its primary user interface, controlling each mic pre channel (level and other parameters), monitoring meter levels and adjusting and recording a monitor mix. Producer and Engineer’s headphone outputs are provided. www.joeco.co.uk www.multidyne.com See interview THIS IS A GoPro HERO4 Camera!
