The NP-L46 is a 14.4V 46W NP-type lithium-ion battery pack that is a
direct replacement for nicad NP-style batteries. The future of battery technology, it is 40% lighter and 50% more powerful than the traditional NP-style
nicad batteries they replace. As it has no memory effect, there is no need for
discharging, and since you do not need any new mounts or locking systems, it
can be used with all your existing cameras and equipment.
■ The NP-L46 has a built-in 5 LED array,
giving quick and precise indication of the
remaining battery capacity. It shows
remaining capacity in 20% increments as
100%, 80%, 60%, 40% and 20%. A
sixth level is produced by the final LED
flashing when the battery capacity falls
below 10%. These accurate readings are
determined not by simple voltage, but by
the built-in microprocessor knowing each
initial charged status and calculating from
the subsequent discharge/running conditions.
■ Fifty percent more power than standard
NiCad NP-type batteries reduces battery
changes and the number of batteries needed
on location. Used together, two NP-L46,
14.4V 46W NP-Type Lithium Ion Battery
Pack will provide 30% more running power
than heavier and bulkier brick batteries.
■ It has no memory effect and do not require
discharge of refresh cycles. Eliminating
the need to discharge actually reduces
battery cell use, thus enhancing the overall life of the battery.
■ Built-in PCB inside each battery controls
all aspects of both charge and discharge
characteristics, as well as data on battery
performance. Control of excess discharge,
charge and temperature keeps the battery
in optimum usage and completely safe.
■ Environmentally friendly, battery can be
disposed of as normal domestic trash.
■ New and existing cameras, VCRs and
monitors can use them without changing
holders or mount accessories.

POWER & LIGHTING
IDX is a manufacturer of broadcast video power
systems, including battery packs, AC camera
adapters, battery chargers and battery analysis
and management tools.
IDX's nicad batteries are based around the
industry standard 12v NP-1 batteries. IDX
uses only premium Sanyo cells in all their batteries for longevity and reliability. IDX is also one of
the pioneers of rechargeable Lithium-Ion and Metal
Nickel Hydride (NiMH) packs. Both in the standard NP-style format, metal nickel hydride packs
have twice the power as nicad packs, exhibit very little memory effect and can be charged in the same charger as a
nicad pack. Lithium-ion batteries have fifty percent more power than a nicad pack, have absolutely no memory effect
and is half the weight of either a nicad or nickel metal hydride battery.
When it comes to charging batteries, most of IDX's chargers use a unique digital sensing system to detect full charge level.
This system ensures that the charging process is not vulnerable to such environmental conditions as ambient temperature.
Most of IDX quick chargers utilize Negative Delta V sensing and a charge rate of up to 1C. This is to prevent over-discharge and shortening of the battery's life.

LITHIUM-ION CHARGERS
IDX Lithium-ion Battery Chargers represent the very latest in IDX charging technology. The optimum electronic charge
regime, combined with the mechanical needs of rugged, compact and portable systems, are the cornerstone of the IDX
design. From the entry-level KL Sequential Chargers series to the IDX trademark ION-4 Simultaneous Charger, IDX can
meets the needs of all charging applications. As lithium-ion is memory-free, batteries can be charged from any state,
regardless of the batteries’ charge status. Each IDX NP-L46 Lithium-ion battery has its own built-in microprocessor
which enables direct communication with the chargers program to individually select, for each battery, the correct charge
program specific for that battery.
KL-2/KL-4/KL-4 PLUS
2 and 4-Channel Sequential Quick Chargers
The KL-2 can charge two Lithium-Ion batteries in 4 hours, while the KL-4
and KL-4 PLUS can charge four batteries in 6 hours. This is accomplished
using a newly-developed Full Power Charging (FPC) method. FPC uses the on-board computer inside each IDX
Lithium-Ion battery pack to communicate with the charger for the fastest charging available. The KL-4 PLUS adds a
60 watt power supply and can power equipment while charging batteries.

Full Power Charging (FPC) method works like this: The charger charges both batteries at the same time, allocating most of the power to
the battery in the first slot. When the battery in the first slot reaches an 80% capacity point, the charger switches to distribute most of
the power to the battery in the second slot. Any remaining power is directed to the opposite battery. The ability of Lithium-Ion to take a
high initial fast charge is the key to producing the highest charge rate in the shortest amount of time.
ION-4
4-Channel Simultaneous Quick Charger
The optimum chargers, the ION-4 can simultaneously charge four NP-L46
lithium-ion batteries in approximately 2-1/2 hours. Also features battery check
sensing and trickle charge function.
■ By charging up to four NP-L46 batteries,
the ION-4 gives you 185 WH of potential power in less than three hours.

BATTERIES/CHARGERS
When professionals select their equipment for ENG/EFP work, their decisions are based on one fact: There are
no second chances. They also know
that a portable Video camera system is
only as reliable as the battery that
powers it. This is why Anton/Bauer has
been the overwhelming number one
choice for professional Video power for
over 25 years. Professionals know that
an Anton/Bauer Battery System delivers the optimum performance they
need, provides the greatest reliability
and guarantees the longest trouble-free
operation. This also explains why every
major camera manufacturer has offered Anton/Bauer battery systems as original equipment. Likewise, the vast majority
of television networks, producers, and Video rental facilities worldwide who continue to base their operations on the
absolute reliability of Anton/Bauer battery systems.
Choosing the Right Battery
Ni-Cad, NiMH or Li-ION?
Since the first television camera left the studio, video professionals
have consistently identified batteries as the most problematic aspect
of ENG/EFP. In the intervening two decades, both video and battery
technologies have dramatically improved. The latest interactive
microprocessor battery and charger systems are very reliable, delivering consistent high performance and eliminating all the problems
associated with earlier systems. Yet, the most recent surveys indicate
that battery problems still head the list of many video professionals.
The explanation for this apparent paradox inevitably involves a misapplication. It seems that some video technicians will spend quite
some time carefully analyzing the specifications and applicability of
cameras and recorders, yet treat the battery as if it were a lens cap
that has no bearing on operation or performance. In some cases, it is
assumed that the battery offered by the equipment manufacturer
must be correct for the application. This assumption is wrong. As
each new generation of camcorder is developed, many equipment
manufacturers merely continue to offer the older technology battery
from previous models, without regard to optimum compatibility or
major technological advances. As an example, a battery developed in
the 1970s for a 3⁄4˝ VCR is still being offered by several manufacturers with their latest CCD camcorders, which actually specify a higher
voltage battery.
A battery should be selected with the same care and analysis as the
other components in the system. There is no excuse for jeopardizing
an entire video operation with an improper battery, when it is really
quite simple to determine the optimum battery for any application.
How do you choose the right battery? Do you
choose it by size, weight, voltage, brand, chemistry
or what? Your answer should be, "by application."
Just because a battery lights up your camera, doesn’t
mean that it’s right for your application.
Considerations should include shooting time, camera draw, lighting draw and camera balance. The
final consideration should be the cost of purchase
divided by the years of guaranteed service/performance.
Anton/Bauer has been a leader in rechargeable battery technology for over 30 years, offering a complete line of battery formats, voltages, capacities and
chemistries. An Anton/Bauer "System" matches
batteries and chargers for optimal performance utilizing technology that is so advanced that they are
protected by the only 3-year performance based

InterActive Technology
Quick-Change Gold Mount
Every Anton/Bauer professional battery
and charger features the exclusive Gold
Mount Quick-Change Mounting system
which has been the standard of the professional Video industry worldwide for
more than a decade. The Gold Mount is
featured as original equipment by all
major equipment manufacturers. The
Gold Mount design includes heavy-duty
gold plated contacts, rugged metal-tometal cam action latching mechanism
and the PowerTap receptacle that can
power a camera-mounted Ultralight from
the camera battery. An exclusive feature
of the Anton/Bauer Gold Mount is the
InterActive contact which couples the
“Fuel Computer” of the digital battery
with the viewfinder “Fuel Gauge” display
that is now standard in many new cameras and camcorders.
A modern NiCad cell is actually a fragile device that can be damaged or destroyed by physical forces typically encountered every day. The simple thin plastic cases that surround conventional batteries offer no protection. That is why the Anton/Bauer IMPAC case is ruggedly constructed with the same high impact strength polycarbonate that is used in professional
crash helmets. Like a crash helmet, the computer aided design of the IMPAC case eliminates stress concentrations and dissipates forces that would destroy a conventional battery.
Heavy-duty and proprietary internal construction techniques combine with the IMPAC
case to make Anton/Bauer professional batteries uniquely capable of surviving the real
world of ENG/EFP.
High Voltage Design
Unlike early Video cameras that were designed
for 12v batteries, today's
professional cameras and
related Video equipment
are designed for 13.2v or
14.4v NiCad batteries.
When coupled with modern Video equipment,
older style 12v Video batteries can cause a multitude of problems, including ‘memory’ loss of
capacity, cold temperature
fading and premature failure. All Anton/Bauer professional Video batteries
feature the 13.2v or 14.4v
design, as specified by all equipment manufacturers, eliminating all the aforementioned 12v
battery problems.
Non-Obsolescence
There are several new cell technologies on the horizon that hold the promise of significant
performance improvements and environmental benefits. These new cells cannot be charged
on conventional NiCad chargers. If such charge is attempted, they will be destroyed and
can create a hazard to the operator. While change to a new cell technology is eventually
inevitable, the accompanying ordeal of having to switch an entire battery system is not.
Every Anton/Bauer InterActive charger features a replaceable program chip that contains the
charging software and the data base for applicable cell types. As each cell improvement or
new cell technology is introduced, the corresponding charge regimes and data are programmed into a new chip that is simply inserted into the charger in place of the old one.
The charger can then identify and properly charge the new type batteries, as well as all the
older types. With this new system, a transition to a new cell technology can occur gradually
and cost-effectively. Only Anton/Bauer InterActive chargers are an investment in the future.

It is now acknowledged that in order to
properly charge a battery and assure optimum performance, the charging process
must consider all the parameters and conditions that affect charge acceptance. This
is exactly the basis for the revolutionary
InterActive Technology, wherein the battery and charger are designed together as
a complete system. During charging, the
battery and charger “talk” to each other.
The battery is designed with a network of
electronic sensors that monitor vital
charging parameters, while a program
module contains critical data, such as cell
formulation, capacity, and voltage. All
this data is fed to the charger microprocessor, which then creates the optimum charge regime for that battery
under the actual prevailing conditions.
InterActive Technology brings rechargeable batteries from the dark ages into the
space age with consistent and dependable
high performance.

POWER & LIGHTING
Anton/Bauer has been refining the science of rechargeable batteries for almost 25 years. Extensive research has enabled its
engineers to identify all the factors responsible for unreliable battery performance and to eliminate them. When you buy
an Anton/Bauer battery system, you reap the benefits of Anton/Bauer’s research and receive 5 very distinct advantages.
ANTON/BAUER
BATTERIES
312
POWER & LIGHTING
Digital Interactive Gold Mount Batteries
Anton/Bauer’s Digital batteries are acknowledged to be the most
advanced in the industry. In addition to the comprehensive sensors integral to all Logic Series batteries, each Digital battery has
a built-in microprocessor that communicates directly with
Anton/Bauer InterActive chargers, setting the standard for reliability, performance and life. They also complete the communications network between battery charger and camera. With the
network in place, digital batteries deliver the feature most
requested by cameramen - a reliable and accurate indication of remaining battery power.
DIGITAL Batteries Have Three
Uniquely Superior Features:
Fuel Computer and InterActive Viewfinder
“Fuel Gauge”:
The complex “fuel computer” program accurately computes the precise state of charge of
the Digital battery and continually informs you
of remaining capacity via an integral LCD or
LED display. Through a joint development
effort with major Video manufacturers, including Sony, Ikegami, Panasonic, JVC and Hitachi,
the fuel computer in each Digital battery also
generates a special signal that transmits the
remaining capacity data to the camera/camcorder where it appears as a “fuel gauge” in the
camera viewfinder. Unlike simple ‘low voltage’
indicators that can be very misleading, the “fuel
gauge” gives accurate remaining capacity data.
Self Diagnosis:
Self diagnosis and calibration programs in the
battery automatically evaluate the performance
of the Digital battery every time it is used. If
the comprehensive program detects any performance criteria below specification, the integral
LCD or LED will display “service”. The Digital
battery thus creates a level of confidence and
dependability for the cameraman that was previously unimaginable.
Battery Management:
Digital batteries can display and print out a
variety of data vital to effective battery management and maintenance, including serial number, date of manufacture, number of charge/discharge cycles, present available cell temperature
and calibrated capacity, as determined by the
internal self-diagnostic program. The Digital
battery excels by virtually eliminating maintenance and testing, while optimizing return on
investment with long trouble-free service.

long life and high performance, even under high current loads and
adverse conditions. Their size and weight creates perfect shoulder balance with all cameras/camcorders.
Digital TRIMPAC 14
Developed in collaboration with major manufacturers, the Digital TRIMPAC 14 has the shape and size to perfectly match the rear dimensions of
today’s camcorders – creating a very integrated package. Ideal for applications drawing less than 24 watts of power, the Digital TRIMPAC 14 is
extremely thin and lightweight (half the width and weight of a Digital PRO
PAC 14 ), yet still has more effective energy than two NP-style batteries.
HyTron 50 /100
The most advanced lightweight batteries in the industry, the HyTRON
50 or HyTron 100 employs all the pioneering technology of Anton’s
digital batteries, combined with an advanced capacity cell chemistry.
Compatible with existing Logic Series chargers, the HyTRON 50 or
100 can be integrated into existing operations without the inconvenience and expense of special mounting or new chargers. When used
with an InterActive 2000 Power Charger, the HyTRON 50 or 100
identifies itself, enabling the special HyTRON charge program. Older Logic Series chargers require a software update (a simple chip replacement).
Uniquely designed to complement existing Anton/Bauer equipment with the worldwide
standard Gold Mount, the HyTRON 50’s extremely small size, light weight, and long
run-time make it ideal for fast-paced handheld operations without on-camera lighting.
The HyTRON 100 employs an exclusive cell capable of delivering superior performance
in any high current application. Designed for today’s digital camcorders, the HyTRON
100 can power a Panasonic AJ-D700 DVCPRO camcorder for up to 4 hours, or up to
2 hours even when used with an UltraLight.
* Note: The Digital TRIMPAC batteries (as well as their non-digital counterparts) are not
recommended when using an Anton/Bauer Ultralight.

PROFORMER
Small and light enough to fit in a pocket, the ProFormer is the perfect battery for event videographers looking for
the most economical transition out of NP-type batteries. The 30 watt hour Proformer will run a typical 25 watt
camcorder for a little over an hour — twice the run-time of NP batteries in typical use. Furthermore, the
ProFormer can power a camera plus a 25 watt video light (Anton/Bauer Ultralight) for half an hour, eliminating
the need for cumbersome lighting belts or cables.
With its slim line, low weight plus high capacity, the ProFormer is the ideal battery for cameramen covering
demanding assignments. It incorporates Anton/Bauer’s InterActive Logic Series system which links battery data
to the associated charger to optimize a charge routine for all prevailing conditions and temperatures. (Note: the

Cameramen have consistently indicated that battery change disruptions can be minimized by using a battery supplying a run-time of at least
11/2 hours. Careful consideration should be given to the power requirements of the equipment and the requirements of the shoot. Consider
not just tape length, but the time the camera will be “hot”. Battery run-time can be easily approximated by dividing the watt hour rating of
the battery by the power consumption (in watts) of the equipment. For example, a 25 watt camera will operate for approximately 2 1/4 hours
on a 60 watt hour Pro Pac, 13/4 hours on a Trimpac 14 and 1 hour on a Proformer.

FEATURES
➤ Auto-Line Select: Allows chargers to be
confidently plugged into any AC main from
90v to 270v (50 or 60 Hz). They automatically adjust to the voltage and eliminate fear
of destroyed equipment and blown fuses –
especially in remote locations.
➤ Power Interrupt Alarm: An alarm sounds
when power is interrupted. If the you are
not present, the alarm will beep every 30
seconds to alert you upon return.
➤ Fast Charge Termination: Fast charge
termination or “cut-off ” is a critical element
of fast charging. To avoid destruction and
fire, the high-rate fast charge current must
be terminated as soon as the battery is fully
charged. Most chargers use only the Voltage
Cut-Off method, which cannot accurately
determine the critical full charge status
under a wide variety of conditions – leading
to potential battery problems and hazards.
Instead of one method, Anton/Bauer simultaneously employs five totally independent
fast charge termination systems for absolutely precise and safe fast-charge termination
under all conditions.

231 cycles DT/dt 22°C
➤ Cold Battery Safety Mode: Another
potential hazard is charging a cold battery.
Most batteries and chargers ignore the warnings from cell manufacturers that fast charging batteries below 40°F can create hydrogen gas and injurious explosions. To prevent
this, all Anton/Bauer batteries have a cold
temperature sensor that triggers a ‘Cold
Battery Safety Mode’ in the charger at
potentially hazardous temperatures. The
charger then automatically adjusts charge
parameters to prevent hydrogen gas generation and ensures a safe full 100% charge.
➤ Balance Mode: For a variety of reasons, a
battery can become imbalanced. This severely limits the available capacity of the battery,
since the equipment will stop when the least
charged cell is depleted. Most chargers cannot recognize an imbalanced battery, thus
giving the appearance that the battery is
permanently impaired. Every Anton/Bauer
charger performs a microprocessor controlled balance routine and provides the correct regime to assure that each individual
cell is fully charged.
➤ Lifesaver Maintenance Mode: After a
battery is fully charged, a charger has one of
two choices – to cease all charge current or
maintain a ‘trickle charge’. With no charge
current, the battery instantly begins to selfdischarge and can become imbalanced. On
the other hand, a ‘trickle charge’, while preventing self-discharge, will create “memory”
problems and generate destructive heat,
accelerating battery aging. The 2000 series
have a patented ‘Lifesaver’ mode that indefinitely maintains perfectly balanced batteries
at 100% charge by eliminating self-discharge, “memory” and heat.
➤ Power Loss Memory (PLM): Power
interruptions with conventional chargers
can cause them to begin their charge cycle
all over again, and there would be no way of
knowing if the batteries had been previously
charged or not. Likewise, a prolonged power
failure leaves them inactive with no indication of the charge status or when the power
was interrupted. The 2000 series feature
PLM (Power Loss Memory), which maintains a memory of the charge status of each
battery during power interruptions.
The LCD addresses each of the battery positions and indicates charge status, available capacity, battery type/rating, percent of maximum charge, battery serial number, date of manufacture, number of charge/discharge cycles accumulated, present battery temperature and voltage,
as well as other pertinent data. In addition to the screens shown here, the LCD also displays
capacity test data when the diagnostic discharge module is installed.

Gold Mount Quick-Change Mounting System
Anton/Bauer’s Gold Mount Quick-Change Mounting System is the standard of the
industry. For over 20 years, professionals have appreciated the versatility and reliability of the Gold Mount, and it has been adopted by the vast majority of broadcasters worldwide. In fact, every major camera manufacturer, including Sony, Panasonic,
JVC, Hitachi and Ikegami offer the Gold Mount as original equipment.
Anton/Bauer manufactures custom Gold Mounts for every major Video manufacturer. Many even ship their camcorders
automatically with the Gold Mount already installed, while some offer the Gold Mount as an option. For camera/camcorders that do not already have a Gold Mount, Anton/Bauer offers a complete array of Gold Mounts for virtually every
model ever made, each custom designed to perfectly mount to existing threaded holes with no modification.
FEATURES
PowerTap Receptacle
Automatique
This exclusive feature allows a camera mounted light, wireless
microphone or other DC accessory to be powered from the camera
battery. The integral cable of the popular Ultralight 2 includes a
PowerTap plug that mates directly with the PowerTap receptacle in
the gold Mount. The PowerTap is rated at 10 amps and is internally
fused for safety.
This optional feature of the Gold Mount is now standard with many
new cameras. A special power circuit in the Gold Mount mates with
the VTR roll signal in the camera/camcorder, allowing an Ultralight
to turn On/Off automatically in coordination with the VTR. This
assures that every shot is free from the objectionable shadows caused
by overhead lights, yet battery drain is kept to a minimum.
InterActive Viewfinder “Fuel Gauge”
The Gold Mount includes the special InterActive contact that transmits the fuel computer signal from the DIGITAL battery to the
viewfinder. “Fuel Gauge” included in many cameras/camcorders.
Future Compatibility
Older box style battery holders, the Gold Mount is fully compatible
with the many different sizes and shapes of the new cell technologies
currently being developed. The Gold Mount also allows old and new
technology batteries to be used together, thus avoiding the sudden
and costly transition to a new battery format.
Universal Application
Gold Mount brackets can be easily installed on all portable equipment, including color monitors, scopes and microwave units. This
eliminates all the problems of having many different and incompatible battery/charger systems and allows spare camera batteries to be
used on test equipment (and vice-versa).
Alternative Mounting Flexibility
A wide variety of Gold Mount accessory battery holders allow the
same batteries that are normally camera mounted to be also worn as
a belt or mounted two-at-a-time, for unlimited run-time.
Unlimited Versatility
By far, the most appealing feature of the Gold Mount System is its
unlimited flexibility. A camera/camcorder fitted with a Gold Mount
has instant access to virtually every size and type power source available to the Video industry. You can instantly select a power source
to match each specific situation. Older style VTR batteries can be
mounted in emergencies, and at the same time the Gold Mount is
ready to accept all future battery technologies.

What is the QR-XL1-C and How Does it Work?
The QR-XL1-C is a “7/14 Gold Mount Bracket” designed to mount a battery on the
Canon XL1.
■ Patented design of the “Gold Mount”
bracket gives the XL-1 a universal
mounting system with access to the
full line of “Gold Mount Batteries”.
Although, based on size and capacity
needs of the XL-1, the ProFormer and
HyTron 50 would be the primary recommendations.
■ The QR-XL1-C has a DC to DC
converter built in. The converter
takes the 14.4 volts provided by the
ProFormer or HyTron 50 battery and
converts it to 7.2 volts which is the
appropriate voltage for the XL-1.
■ However, the QR-XL1-C maintains
14.4 volts in the “Powertap” connector so that a camera mounted light,
such as the Ultralight 2 can be powered from the same battery.
■ The Ultralight 2-20 mounts easily to
the shoe mount on the Canon XL1.
■ The QR-XL1-C mounts on the
Canon MA-100 (Microphone
Adapter/Shoulder Pad) and with the
ProFormer or HyTron 50 battery
positioned there, balances the camera
by offsetting the weight of the lens.
SPECIALIZED GOLD MOUNTS
Universal Gold Mounts
Universal Gold Mount kits mount on virtually
any portable equipment that can be powered
from 12-14v DC. Use them for waveform
monitors, vectorscopes, microwave
transmitters/receivers, and even portable telephones. Powering an entire video operation
from a single type battery/charger system is the
ultimate convenience and economy.
Arriflex Gold Mounts
Custom made for the Arriflex 16SRII or
16SRIII they require no modification to the
camera. The HyTron 50 is perfectly matched
and provides a vast improvement in run-time
and reliability over the OEM battery.

SYSTEM RTI
326
POWER & LIGHTING
Run-Time Information System
By displaying accurate battery run-time information (remaining battery
power in hours, minutes and seconds), PAG’s System RTI far surpasses all
other battery status devices and display systems. Using a patented electronic
interrogation system for instantaneous battery status recognition, the System
RTI provides the world's first truly accurate Battery Run-Time Information
System for all broadcast cameras — regardless of age or manufacturer.
How it works:
➤ A patented two-wire system interrogates the battery during use,
taking account of its state of charge and the energy being consumed. The remaining running time is displayed in hours, minutes
and seconds in the camera viewfinder and is instantaneously updated
against any change of load. As the load characteristics are changed,
for example with the addition or subtraction of a Video light, the
run-time is instantly recalculated and displayed.
➤ When switching to Standby mode, RTI assumes that the power
being consumed prior to standby will be resumed when the camera
is next switched to Record. The run-time available for that power
consumption will be displayed, with only standby current being
subtracted. In this standby situation, the display characters change
to gray.
System RTI Paglok Connector
PAG-developed microcomputer technology is embodied in the System RTI Paglok Connector, fitted to the camera. A
Video overlay signal intercepts the composite Video signal of the viewfinder routed internally or externally from the
Paglok connector, without interfering with the camera electronics. The Paglok connector incorporates modular interchangeable moulding for RTI and Paglight ML On/Off switches and for the 2.1mm Paglight ML socket. This allows
you to position them in the most convenient place for operation. The RTI Paglok Connector also features a unique Antisurge Cold Filament Prewarm switch, which can be controlled automatically from the camera's Record function. When
the camera is switched to Standby, the camera light is automatically turned off.
Operation
Connect a battery, and its remaining
capacity is instantly displayed in the
camera viewfinder: Switch to Record,
and the information changes to Available
Running Time.
There is no doubt that the reliability and performance of battery
power is fundamental to the reliability of the equipment it powers, yet the fact is that batteries perform in different ways under
different conditions. Therefore, the more sophisticated the monitoring system, the more meaningful and accurate the battery status information will be. This, of course, allows the cameraman to
be more cost effective with the power available.
SM

Other Battery Power Indication systems that display percentages
or LED arrays may appear to be better than nothing, but, in fact,
offer no more than inaccurate and misleading information as to
remaining battery capacity. The only information the cameraman
really wants to know is how long his battery will last – in hours,
minutes and seconds. PAG has achieved this with System RTI.

System RTI intelligent batteries contain a microcomputer, they have
been purposely designed without an electronic display. Displays make
the battery larger, more expensive and vulnerable to damage. They
also draw extra current from the battery and are ultimately discarded

MC124 RTI
The ultimate in battery management, the MC-124 RTI offers all the fast and intelligent battery charging capabilities of the AR-124 Series, plus it is capable of measuring
battery capacity and recovering lost performance. Whether on location or in the workshop, the MC124 represents the very latest in portable battery management technology. Digitally communicates with System RTI batteries and uses the data received to
determine and display the most appropriate program for the battery.
■ RTI battery is acknowledged by 'RTI' appearing on the Level 1 LCD screen. When an RTI battery is being charged or discharged, the Level
1 screen displays the battery's available capacity. When the MC124 'Hold to View capacity' switch is pressed, the Level 2 screen displays the
names of the programs which have been selected on each channel. Release the button, and the Level 3 screen displays data for all RTI batteries connected, including internal temperature and charge current loaded. After six seconds has elapsed, the Level l screen returns.
■ MC124 RTI can be linked to a PC and used with PAG CMS (Charger Management Software) to provide a library of all stored battery infor-
mation which can be retrieved, compared and printed.

Nickel-cadmium batteries which have been over-discharged may
be rejected by the charger and indicated as faulty. Batteries in such
condition are unsuitable for fast-charging. To overcome this condition, the AR series chargers
incorporate an ancillary recovery charge program. The selector switch for this program is located on the front panel, and its operation initially allows the user to select the required output
channel. When the recovery charge has been completed, the AR Series will automatically enter
the fast-charge program, which runs until the battery is fully charged. If a battery is severely
faulty and has not responded to treatment by the recovery charge program, it will be indicated
as faulty when the fast-charge program is entered.
POWER & LIGHTING
When the fast-charging phase has been completed, the AR series chargers may switch over automatically to its balancing
charge program. Investigations by PAG have shown that imbalance between cells (caused by slight differences in cell
charge acceptance and capacity) can be cumulative without the ability to address cell imbalance. The duration of the
balancing charge is dependent upon information gained on individual cell condition during the initial analysis phase of the fast-charge program. A battery in any state of charge may be applied to the
AR series. If the PAG ACS determines that a battery is in a satisfactory state of balance, it will not
have the above balancing charge applied.

D124NP
330
POWER & LIGHTING
Discharger for NP-type Batteries
Ideal for use with the AR124NP Fast-Charger, the D124NP is designed to retrieve the
available capacity of any 12v, 13.2v and 14.4v NP-type nicad battery. No matter how
carefully batteries are used, most will benefit from a complete and accurate discharge
throughout their capacity range — especially if the battery has not been selected to match
the camera's preset cut-off voltage. Continuous use of 12v batteries with cameras that cut off at
between 11v and 11.5v, will eventually cause permanent reduction in the batteries' available capacity.
■ When selecting a battery, it is important to
choose one that has an end-of-discharge
voltage matching, as closely as possible, the
cut-off voltage of the camera with which it
is to be used.
■ Connect to the AR124NP Fast-Charger, to
provide an automatic system that will fastcharge batteries as they complete their discharge cycles.
■ All nicad batteries are deemed to be fully
and correctly discharged at one volt per
cell. Therefore, a 12v battery would be
fully discharged at ten volts, a 13.2v battery at eleven volts and a 14.4v battery at
twelve volts. Rather than discard the failing
battery, the PAG D124NP should be used
to discharge the cells in the battery accurately to one volt per cell, a process which
will retrieve the batteries’ available capacity.
■ A 12v battery will be under-discharged if
the camera cut~off is at 11 volts, providing
less running time, whereas a 14.4v battery,
initially providing longer running time, will
be over-discharged, causing cell reversal and
shorter battery life. The battery that will
achieve the best results with the above camera cut-out voltage, is the 13.2v eleven cell
PAG NPX1.

The PowerMax Control lamp holder incorporates a voltage control circuit to efficiently control voltage at the base lamp regardless of battery terminal voltage. This is important,
because halogen lamps, typically specified for 12v operation, are usually used with 13.2v or
14.4v batteries. For example a 100W 12v lamp powered from a 14.4v battery will consume
150W. This results in dramatically reduced run time and shortened filament life. The
PowerMax efficiently regulates the voltage at the Paglight base to 12v, regardless of battery
voltage, thereby extending battery run time up to 25%, and dramatically improving lamp
filament life while achieving a constant and correct color temperature output. Can be used
with all 12v halogen lamps.

UNDERSTANDING BATTERY TECHNOLOGY
To make the right choice when purchasing any DC power product, it is important that you have a basic understanding
of the most important component — the battery. Despite the exciting promise of the future, outstanding and proven
cell performance is available now. Before deciding which brand or style of power you will buy, it is best to decide which
type of battery will best suit your power needs. This decision is made simpler by the fact that there are only two main
classes of battery types commonly used for auxiliary Video power sources. These battery types are lead acid and NiCads.
Lead Acid Cells
NiCad Cells
Used in Video applications primarily based on cost, lead acid
batteries are extremely inexpensive and easily manufactured.
They are durable, can withstand poor charge habits and high
rate discharges, have no memory effects and exhibit a long
storage life when subjected to a constant or pulsed “float
charge”. However, despite these admirable qualities, lead acid
cells have substantial deficiencies in a Video environment.
They have a low energy-to-weight ratio, short life cycle
(especially under the power hungry environments of Video
lighting), and they exhibit substantial voltage depression and
poor voltage regulation during discharge. Because the voltage
of the pack is continually sloping downward during discharge, equipment is subject to early shutdown, and maintaining consistent light intensity and color temperature is
nearly impossible. Lead acid packs also cannot be stored discharged for extended time periods without damage due to
internal sulfidation. Regardless of the charge state prior to
storage, periodic charging during storage is necessary to preserve cell function.
When charged properly, NiCad cells deliver outstanding performance, even under extremes of hot or cold. Another important characteristic of NiCad cells is their natural electrochemical superiority.
This allows the delivery of stable voltage, with minimal voltage drop,
even under heavy discharge loads. The result is superior discharge
performance. For example, when powering Video lights, color temperature stays consistent during discharge, and premature equipment
shutdown is avoided when powering professional cameras. NiCad
cells also have an extremely high power-to-weight ratio, weighing
20% to 50% less than other types of equivalent power. Wear a 20 lb.
lead acid pack for a day, then compare it to a NiCad pack with similar capacity. You will understand the difference. The only barrier to
the exclusive use of NiCads is their cost. Expensive raw materials,
sophisticated engineering requirements and the manufacturing complexity of peripherals such as chargers, make manufacturing NiCad
cells more expensive than lead acid. NRG is one of the few companies
that manufacturers products using high-grade NiCad cells at a price
realistic enough for a broad range of videographers.

Voltage
An important consideration when purchasing a power source is not
only its cost and performance, but how long it will last. If you plan
to use the battery infrequently, its life may not be of much concern,
and the initial cost savings of a lead acid system may make it an
attractive choice. When battery life is averaged out to a cost-percharge, however, a NiCad based system not only provides greater
comfort and performance, but may actually cost less, as well.
Another important thing to know when choosing a battery is the
voltage you will need. Professional equipment, such as an industrial
or broadcast level 3-CCD cameras, generally have a high shutoff
voltage (usually 10.9v to 12v). This high shutoff voltage prevents the
equipment from fully accessing a 12v battery’s capacity, since the
equipment will shut off before the pack is fully drained. Using a
13.2v pack generally allows equipment to fully access all the capacity
of the pack and prevents early shutdown. In many cases, it also permits lighting to be used simultaneously from the same power source.
Discharge Characteristics
This is important, for example, when powering lights. When using
lead acid batteries, the color temperature and intensity of the lighting
will be lower and continually shifting — requiring higher wattage
lamps to be used to obtain the light intensity necessary. In addition,
footage shot with a fully charged pack will show differences in intensity
and coloration from shots near the end of a discharge. Thanks to
stable voltage and low voltage drop under load, lights powered from
NiCads provide a much purer and more intense light. This often
allows lower lamp wattages to be utilized for increased operating
time. Cameras benefit, as well, since a NiCad pack takes longer to
reach the voltage point at which they (cameras) power down.
333
The discharge profile of a cell is as critical to the usable run-time of a
pack as capacity. This term refers to the way the voltage of different
battery types drop during discharge. Even if the capacity of a battery
were unlimited, if its voltage falls below the level your equipment
needs to operate, its power would be unusable. When a battery starts
to discharge, the voltage of the pack drops continuously as the pack
empties. In general, the voltage of lead acid batteries tends to constantly shift downward in a sloping fashion. NiCad cells, on the other
hand, tend to discharge with a stable and flat voltage profile until full
discharge has been reached. Only then does the voltage drop rapidly.
POWER & LIGHTING
Battery Life
Some equipment, such as 3-CCD cameras, shut off at a high
voltage, preventing the full use of a pack's power In such cases,
a 13.2v pack can make a significant difference in running time.
Memory
Nothing in the battery industry has been more misunderstood
than the word “memory”. The coined term given to a phenomenon
that is correctly called voltage depression, “memory” is the explanation given when a battery appears to be fully charged, but then
gives out after ten minutes. As explained before, when a battery
is powering a load, its voltage gradually drops. The drop plotted
over time is called a discharge curve — “memory” or voltage
depression is an abnormal dip in this curve. Now, while not scientifically proven, “memory” is caused primarily by subjecting a
NiCad cell to overcharge for a period of time. Overcharge occurs
when a charger fails to efficiently sense charge completion. A
good example of this is manufacturers that save on battery costs
by using inexpensive cells designed for slow charge rates (10
hours or greater), but then cave into consumer demand for shorter
charge times and pair these batteries with rapid chargers that
recharge cells in three or four hours. The excessive rate of charge,
combined with inaccurate methods for sensing charge completion, has probably been the cause of voltage depression in many
users’ packs.

Cell Capacities
Some people fear using these higher voltage packs on their equipment. It
is important to realize that while 12 volts may be specified as the input
voltage, every power supply has a wide operational latitude, in many case
as high as 16 or 17 volts. Also, when placed under a load, a 13.2v pack
drops almost immediately to around 12.5v – a perfect operational voltage for professional equipment. And, while it is always wise to check
with the original manufacturer of your equipment, the performance of
almost any deck or dockable will be safely improved by utilizing a 13.2v
pack. On the other hand, the 13.2v pack may not be a good choice for
consumer and lower-grade industrial cameras, or for powering lighting.
These types of equipment are generally able to fully drain a 12v pack,
and the added cost and weight of a 13.2v system is unjustified, as little
increase in performance will be noted.

Have you ever wondered why a so-called “two-hour” battery only lasted 20 minutes, or why a 13-amp lead acid battery only runs an 8-amp
load for 40 minutes? It seems logical to expect a battery rated at 13
amps to power a 13-amp load for one hour, or a 1-amp load for 13
hours. In most cases, however, this conclusion would be incorrect due
to the real-world physics of a battery during discharge. During discharge, a battery’s chemical makeup and internal resistance play a vital
role in determining what the actual capacity of the battery will be
under a particular load. The more quickly power is drawn from a battery, the lower its voltage will drop, and the less efficient it will become
at delivering power.

† Capacity of the pack, expressed in watts at a one-hour discharge rate.
†† Lead Equivalence Rate — allows for comparison with a high-rate discharge of 20-hour rate lead acid product.
* These products utilize Lead Acid Packs. This figure reflects actual capacity when discharged at 20-hr. rate.
Most people consider the amp rating of a battery to be the most accurate indicator of its capacity. But amp rating alone is not helpful without knowing under what rate of discharge the claimed capacity was
measured, and how the battery will derate from that figure at the rate
you plan to use it. For example, if a lead acid battery was rated 20
amps at a twenty-hour rate, it would theoretically produce one amp
for each of 20 hours. If, however, you suddenly demand power typical
of the Video environment – for example, a 100 watt video light which
pulls 8.3 amps – the battery will become far less efficient at delivering
its power. It may now only produce a small amount of its originally
rated power, as little as 10 or 12 amps. Thus, a light that “should” run
for 2-1/2 hours might, instead, run for much less than two.
Since most manufacturers publish amp ratings based on slow rates of
discharge over long periods of time, you must determine what amount
of power your equipment will be using, and over what period of time
that power level will be required. To figure out what you need, first
determine the amperage or wattage draw of your equipment. Then
decide how many hours you need the equipment to operate. For
example, if your camera draws 24 watts (2 amps at 12 volts) and your
light draws 30 watts (2.5 amps at 12 volts), it is easy to estimate that
you will need about 55 watts (4.6 amps) per hour. It will, therefore, be
important not only to find a battery with 4.6 amps of capacity, but
one capable of delivering 4.6 amps over a one hour period. Always ask
a manufacturer not only for the capacity of the battery, but also its
capacity at your planned rate of discharge. To help you estimate runtimes, most manufacturers, including NRG, use a more meaningful
method of rating pack capacity: The Watt-Hour rating standard. It
will, therefore, be important not only to find a battery with 4.6 amps
of capacity, but one capable of delivering 4.6 amps over a one hour
period. Always ask a manufacturer not only for the capacity of the
battery, but also its capacity at your planned rate of discharge. Simply
put, the watt-hour rating expresses pack capacity in watts at a onehour discharge rate.
We Exhibit At NAB, Infocomm, and Siggraph
NRG
For example, if your camera draws 30 watts and it is powered from a 60 watt-hour pack, it is safe to say that it will run for over two
hours. That’s because a battery’s power normally will be used over a period longer than an hour – so the one hour rate represents the
worst case available capacity.

POWER & LIGHTING
The Anchor Series is a high quality, low-cost, entry-level system for schools,
institutions and beginning videographers on a budget. Incorporating durable
Starved Electrolyte Lead Acid Gel cells and a sophisticated electronic charging
system, the Anchor Series obtains maximum power at minimal cost. And while
the inherent characteristics of lead acid cells make them poorly suited to most professional applications , the Anchor Series
is a powerful alternative to other lead acid and poorly designed NiCad systems. And, although like all lead acid based
systems, they are heavy brutes (10 and 13 lbs. respectively) compared to NRG’s NiCad-based, professional belt
systems, the good news is that they deliver maximum power and ingenious features at a minimum initial cost.
Belts are ruggedly constructed of black padded ballistic nylon. They feature 7-stage LED “fuel gauge” power status indicator, dual power outputs and Auto Reset short circuit
protection. Each includes 200 series electronic “Smart Charger” with status display.

Heavy-Duty Stepping Transformers
A traveler’s dream, the Chameleon
delivers 110v AC from 100–240
AC voltages worldwide. Simply
select the voltage of the country
you are in, and plug in the appropriate cordset (optional) for that
country’s plug style. The
Chameleon then provides 120v AC at 1.7 amps at its
U.S. plug-style output. Housed in a rugged metal case to withstand
the rigors of travel, yet weighs just over 3 lbs.
NRG’s heavy-duty stepping transformers are a convenient and inexpensive
method of boosting or reducing a
voltage. In one direction they will
reduce 220v AC to 110v, and in the
other they will boost 110v AC to
220v. And they are much more rugged
and reliable than inexpensive wall
mount types. (Note: They only change
voltages, not frequencies, and input
voltage irregularities will proportionally affect output voltages.

LIGHTMASTER 2000
Total Command In The Palm Of Your Hand
The Lightmaster 2000 is a wireless command system that gives you total
control over any number of AC lights from up to 150 feet away, even
through walls. Never again trek across a crowded dance floor, disrupt a news
conference, or spend time taping down cables. Simply plug any AC light (up
to 1000 watts) into a control module and you're in total control using a tiny
handheld radio frequency transmitter. Since you can add an unlimited number of control modules, the Lightmaster can be expanded as your lighting
needs grow. Lightmaster modules can be easily set to a unique address to
avoid interaction in crowded environments where other Lightmasters may be in use.

LIGHTMASTER 2010
The Lightmaster 2010 Series provides similar functions to the 2000 series but with one very important additional feature. total
control over light intensity. Imagine, not only can you turn each light on or off from the tiny handheld command unit but you can
precisely set the output of each light or light group. Bring the light levels up slowly to acclimate subjects,experiment with light
intensities to achieve creative effects, even recall settings for future use. The Lightmaster 2010 incorporate NRG's sophisticated
LightGate intensity management system to eliminate the heat, color shift and audible noises common to other light dimmers.
LightGate technology gives the light full power at different on-to-off ratios 20,000 times per second. The Lightmaster 2010 can be
used with any brand of AC lighting and can accommodate lamp wattages of 50-1,000 watts.

MINI-FILL MFIC
DC Light with Dimmer Control
The Mini-Fill MFIC has a built-in dimmer control which uses PWM (Pulse Width
Modulation) for adjusting light output. With this feature you get the performance of a 50,
60, 75 or 100 watt light when just using a 100 watt lamp. Just dial in the wattage you
need — and the Mini-Fill Intensity Control (MFIC) will provide you with the right
amount of light, whatever the situation.

HMI Mini-Sun Guns
Frezzi’s lightweight Mini-Sun Gun HMI lights are a one-of-a-kind, single piece
design with the ballast in the lamp head. Very compact, they. still provide unrivaled power and performance. They are also low profile and
ergonomically designed to withstand the abuse of harsh environments
in electronic news gathering and field production applications.
The 18, 24 and 50 Watt HMI units are color balanced at 5600°K
providing true daylight color balanced light without the need of a corrective filter. However, if the camera operator needs tungsten color temperature,
it is as easy as flipping down a filter which will automatically convert it to a
tungsten balanced indoor light. Frezzi has designed all their HMI units to be self-contained,
making them user-friendly with a smooth, wide, uniformed beam.

POWER & LIGHTING
Unique On-Camera Tri-Light
With the U-3 you’ll never have to make the compromises that you used to make with a single light source. Three individual independent light sources give you multiple lighting
(wattage) options without stopping the action. The U-3 accepts any combination of three
12v 20 watt or 35 watt lamps for a maximum of 105 watts. Add or subtract brightness
and still maintain a consistent color temperature of 3200°K. The U-3 comes complete with
three lamps (one 20 watt 20° spot and two 35 watt 40° flood lamps) , gel holder, six diffusion and daylight gels, and camera shoe and stud. Made from one piece of extruded aluminum, 2-1/2 inches deep, the U-3 is pure power and strength. No light is the world can compare with it.
■ A choice of 3 lamps allows use of 20 or
35 watt bulbs— flood or spot—in any
combination. One, two or all three lamps
can be illuminated from a simple control
panel on the back of the U-3.
■ Lighting intensity can be varied without
sacrificing color temperature. Lamp switches can be individually preset or controlled
by the U-3's master switch. LEDs on the
back of indicate which lamps are in use.

Two Fixtures-in-One
Video has many advantages over film, however, the final results do not have the “film look”.
To get that “film look” when shooting video you have to have the proper amount of lighting —and
more important, position it correctly to add depth of field.
Born in Hollywood studios, but re-invented with features for video, studio and location
work, the Combo Light is an incredibly versatile softlight that can also be used a floodlight. As as a softlight it offers superluminal, but gentle diffused illumination with just
the right light/shadow contrast that is perfect for film, video, product or portrait photography. It also has adjustable sockets for short or long double-ended quartz halogen lamps
(300, 500, 750 or 1000 watts.)
To use as a flood light you simply give a strong pull to separate the flood
light from the softlight hood. No tools are needed. Now apart, you have a compact and powerful flood light that can be mounted on a light stand (using its own independent yoke) to brightly illuminate very large areas, both indoor and out. It accepts barn doors as well a unique gel holder
that converts the flood light into a large, gentle light source. Use diffusion or color gels to create the
atmosphere and mood you want.

Nominated for an Oscar, and used by NASA on the space shuttle, the Mini-Cool is the most
versatile light available. Compact and powerful, it produces more light with 250w bulbs
than 600w fresnels four times the size. It can be powered DC for on-camera use where it
can also be height adjusted to prevent red eye. Powered by AC it can be stand mounted
where it becomes the perfect key light. It offers a choice of 20 different lamps from 12v to
240v and 22 to 300 watts, and is supported by sixteen optional accessories including
mounting devices and light control items like daylight filters and diffusion lenses.
The standard for an on-camera light, the Mini-Cool delivers uniform and precise color-perfect illumination every time.

DELTA FORCE CHARGER
Minus Delta V (-dv) Charging System for Nicad and NiMH Batteries
The Delta Force Charger will double the life of your battery. Tests have proven that it is
not unusual to achieve 1000 or more charge cycles when using a 4-stage Minus Delta V
charging method. The same tests have shown older batteries will recover substantially by
reducing crystallization and restoring the battery to near normal performance.
The heart of the Delta Force system is an advanced micro-controller
that monitors your battery’s “vital signs”—voltage, current and other
variables. When a battery is first connected, the charger will rapidly
and efficiently charge the battery to about 70% of its capacity in the
first few minutes. while the cells will absorb almost all the energy and
stay COOL. The charger then continues until the battery reaches its
characteristic Delta Slope indicating an absolute full charge. The computer senses the beginning of the slope terminating the full charge and
shifting to trickle charge. This charging method is ideal for nicad and
NiMH cells.
Delta Force chargers don’t work on the principle of sensing the heat
generated by cells to terminate a full charge. Heat sensing chargers are
not designed in the best interest of your battery. Temperature sensing
is harmful and inaccurate depending on the location of the thermistor
and climactic conditions at the location of the charge. Hot climates or
sunny versus cold can mean different charge levels. Charger manufacturers tend to “cook” the batteries under normal conditions to guarantee a full charge. Any extended temperature over 113°F will significantly shorten the life of the battery.

12/14v 55 or 100-watt DC Focusing Lights
The tiny, battery-powered i-Light and id-Light provide essential fill light, eye-light, highlights,
and contrast control in news and documentary shooting, without overwhelming available light.
Ideal for on-camera use, their 6:1 focusing range lets you easily change lamp position from flood to
spot or anywhere in between. Or, substitute the prismatic glass with the optional clear glass and
they become non-focusing, high intensity spotlights. An optional super spot reflector for
extremely long throws is also available.
The i-Light and id-Light are idenical in every respect except one—the id-Light has a
built-in 20 kHz dimmer to provide graceful, flicker-free dimming.
They both include a 4´ power cord and a host of connectors to attach to a camera shoe, 1/4-20 thread tap, or any
mounting accessory that has a 5/8˝ male stud. They also accept a wide variety of accessories, including barndoors, diffusion glass, dichroic filters and scrims.
i-01 i-Light Complete Set
id-01 id-Light Complete Set
Includes 55w lamp and spare 100w lamp, 4-ft. cable with cigarette

The i-Light, id-Light and Pro-Light are all fitted with Lowel’s new high -intensity #2 Reflector and Prismatic Glass. The result is a more evenly dispersed flood, and a more uniform spot with significantly improved barndoor cut. Replace the Prismatic Glass with the Clear Safety Glass
accessory and you have a high-intensity non-focusing super spot for situations requiring long throws.
PRO-LIGHT
12v/30v/120v 50-250-watt AC/DC Focusing Light
Almost identical in appearance to the i-Light, the versatile Pro-Light adds 30v DC and
120v AC capability. Small and focusable, the Pro-Light is more efficient than a mini-fresnel
of equal wattage, yet it gives an exquisite even light, with fresnel like shadow quality. It can
be used as a low-level key or accent light, fill light (with diffusion), backlight, or background
light. To use as an on-camera light, you simply add a DC adapter cable and swap the bulb.
Bulbs for the Pro-Light
■ Multi-use halogen, focusing/tilting controlled
with one hand.
■ Optional cigarette, 4-pin and 5-pin XLR DC
power connectors
■ Accepts 12v (up to 100 watts) 30v (up to 200

RIFA LIGHTS
Creating beautiful soft key or fill light doesn't have to be strenuous or time consuming.
Compact, lightweight, & self-contained, the Rifa-lite uses a simple design approach as old as
the umbrella to achieve its’ quick and easy setup and strike capabilities. Unlike common, inefficient, soft boxes that must first be attached to a light as an accessory, the Rifa is both light
and soft box combined. Rifa-lites go from carry bag to stand in under a minute.
■ Permanently mounted halogen lamp fix-
ture centered in collapsible silver aluminized high temperature Nomex housing.
■ 3 light-efficient models: 500, 750, &
1000w max
■ State of the art woven glass fabric front
diffuser offers exceptional heat resistance.
Front diffuser must always be used.
■ Easy access pockets on fabric shell
allow clip-on gel attachment for
correcting to daylight.
■ Light controlled with fold-up accessory
fabric Egg Crates.

DEDOLIGHT
DLOB
On-Board Dedolight
Small but extremely light-efficient, the DLOB utilizes a unique double lens system— a high
quality mirror reflects light through meniscus and condenser lenses—providing a much higher
light output than would be expected. Equipped with only a 100 watt bulb, the DLOB delivers
light output comparable to much larger 400 watt tungsten fresnel lights.
■ Wide focusing range enables it to work in a wide variety of situa-
tions. Its even and smooth light distribution in flood position, plus
enormous reach and light efficiency in spot position are unmatched
by any other on-camera light. The DLOB’s extraordinary reach is
ideal for news assignments where the camera operator may have to
remain at a distance from the subject.
■ Designed for use with video cameras, DLOB can be mounted by
either supplied screw or shoe mount. A bracket allows central positioning on the camera. A flip-up daylight conversion filter is also
included.
Overnight Shipping Available
■ The DLOB accepts spe-
cial high-voltage 20W,

want it. This lens is also light efficient and transmits almost all light passing through it.
optional barndoors
You can move the lamp forward or backwards thus either increasing or decreasing the
area the light covers and the intensity of the light within that area. Arri uses high gauge
wire (a thicker wire provides less resistance and therefore makes for a brighter light) with
an in-line on/off switch. Attached to the light is a yolk which allows the light to be pivoted when positioning. The yolk
attaches to a 5/8˝ or smaller lightstand and other grip or mounting equipment. Available accessories range from barndoors and snoots to scrims. Can be powered by either 110 or 220v AC depending on the bulb.
