The A-E2KPm is designed to securely house the Ki Pro Mini and mount conveniently to an ENG camera V-Mount connection, writes David Fox.
It has an integral P-V2 plate that allows direct attachment of IDX 14.4v V-Mount Lithium Ion batteries to provide simultaneous power for both the Ki Pro Mini and the camera.
The A-E2KPm has a discreet four-pin XLR cable to pickup power from the battery and slot into the XLR power terminal at the base of the Ki Pro Mini. A two-pin D-Tap connector located on the side of the P-V2 supplies DC power directly from the attached battery to an on-board camera light or other DC operated accessory.
The rugged exterior and slim profile of the A-E2KPm provides secure housing while a hinged top hood offers protection to the flash card slots and LCD panel in poor weather conditions, allowing users to easily insert or remove media without removing the unit from the enclosure.
Even when housed, the A-E2KPm provides full access to the Ki Pro Mini’s audio and HD-SDI video input and output sockets.
The A-E2KPm can also be mounted directly on IDX’s Shoulder Stabilisation System, without the use of 3rd party rod or rail mountings. It can simply be slotted to the chosen P-V series plate at the rear of the A-CA74E Shoulder Adaptor and powered using an attached IDX 14.4v V-Mount Li-ion battery.
