Anton/Bauer Provides Ultra Reliable D-90 Batteries

Anton/Bauer, a brand of The Vitec Group, and a premier provider of batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries, continues to see a steady increase in sales of its lightweight, lithium-ion Dionic 90 Battery from customers worldwide, sending strong feedback on its long battery life. Anton/Bauer Dionic 90 users include Krypton Film in Norway and Camelot Broadcast Services in Germany.
“We’re proud to supply our Dionic series batteries to some of the largest, most recognized broadcast corporations and rental houses in Europe,” says Martin Sly-Jex, EMEA manager for Anton/Bauer. “With the Dionic 90 continuing to perform for our customers after three years, we’re meeting our goal as a company that provides our customers not only with the most cutting-edge technology, but with value on their investment. The D-90 is the right choice as a dependable, durable and long-lasting battery, guaranteeing that a production team is never stuck without a reliable power source.”
Krypton Film, Oslo, Norway
Krypton Film, the largest high-end digital rental business and post-production facility in Norway, purchased the Anton/Bauer Dionic 90 batteries for clients filming documentaries, reality TV and drama serials. As experienced cinematographers themselves, Krypton owners Marius Johansen Hansen, Theodor Kristensen and Jørn Broll selected the D-90 batteries for their size and durability. “The D-90’s weight, size and physical shape were crucial deciding factors for us,” says Kristensen, technical manager and owner of Krypton Film. “When doing handheld work it is important to have light, small and long-lasting batteries, so the D-90s were some of the first batteries we selected when we started out in the rental business.”
The D-90 batteries are used at Krypton to power Sony, Panasonic and RED camera systems. Purchased in 2006, the batteries have withstood wear and tear with a lifetime of over three years. “The D-90 batteries are incredibly durable,” says Kristensen. “Recently, The D-90 batteries were used by a customer to film this year’s reality show, ‘71 Degrees North’ where the contestants, crew and equipment must survive very rough conditions over a few weeks. The D-90 batteries performed excellently for the client, and have lasted even after a few drops and knocks in the field.”
Camelot Broadcast Services, Berlin, Germany
Camelot Broadcast Services, a major Berlin rental house specializing in digital production and crew staffing, uses Anton/Bauer Dionic 90 batteries for news, feature film and dailies during production shoots. Touting the Dionic 90 batteries’ reliability, Camelot Broadcast CEO Rainer Hercher has selected Anton/Bauer batteries for his staff ever since Camelot was founded in 1997. With over 160 D-90 batteries in stock, Camelot’s crew especially appreciates the D-90’s built-in real-time LCD display that assures cameramen that enough power exists for an assignment. As Camelot uses the Anton/Bauer Quad 2702 charger with its D-90 batteries, staff can use both the multi-function display readout on the charger and LCD display on the battery to ensure that customers always receive reliable, fully-charged equipment.
“The D-90 batteries perform exceptionally well for two years with a full charge, so we’re confident that we’re getting a good return on our investment,” says Hercher. “In a professional environment, good support from the manufacturer is also as important as having a good product, and Anton/Bauer has always provided excellent communication. It continues to bring new ideas and innovative products to us, which is important in our competitive industry.”
