Gold Mount is key to success

Anton/Bauer, a brand of The Vitec Group, is set to demonstrate its advanced Gold Mount System for both camera and non-camera applications at NAB, which provides an interchangeable battery system. “The key to our success and foundation of all of our technology begins with the Gold Mount System,” said Shin Minowa, vice president of marketing and business development. “While introducing new battery technologies to the market, it is an important part of our business to stay focused on developing interchangeable Gold Mount solutions for the continuous stream of camera and non-camera technology constantly being introduced. During this year’s NAB, we will showcase our many new and existing Gold Mount solutions, the most secure mounting system available for professionals.” The Gold Mount’s interchangeable battery system uses a forward compatible approach originally developed by Anton/Bauer. This system allows for new cell chemistries as they are developed, allowing a battery introduced today to perform seamlessly on a charger purchased 10 years ago, with only a simple software upgrade. Three solid mechanical connections ‘lock’ into place, providing secure contact for a steady stream of uninterrupted power, an inherent problem with other mounts causing users to experience intermittent power failure. Anton/Bauer is now offering new Gold Mount power solutions for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 7D and EOS 60D Digital SLR cameras, the QR-DSLR, which addresses the needs of broadcasters and filmmakers incorporating Digital SLR camera video capture into their productions. The QR-DSLR runs monitors, lights, transmitters and other accessories not possible with a standard OEM battery, using the Logic Series batteries. Stand C7032
