IDX Technology is now shipping the A-E241E, a new dual V-Mount plate which can support two attached IDX V-mount batteries to double the battery capacity and runtime available for cameras and on-board accessories. The new plate has a universal V-Mount for secure connection to a wide variety of professional broadcast cameras and equipment and is compatible with all IDX ENDURA System Lithium Ion batteries. A-E241E users have the advantage of being able to "hot-swap" batteries as they become low on capacity, replacing them with fully charged models without turning the camera off. The lower battery channel supports IDX's Digi-View feature which shows remaining battery capacity data in percentage steps via the viewfinder.
The A-E241E is primarily designed to provide longer lasting battery power for high powered ENG and cinematic cameras. It is especially suited for use with the 136Wh ENDURA ELITE battery which can output 272Wh of runtime. For those who frequently travel with camera and battery equipment by air, the ELITE eliminates concerns over air transportation with dual power cartridges that can be easily disengaged for travel and are fully compliant with domestic and internal IATA regulations.
