Anton/Bauer Products Bring Efficiency To Nexstar Broadcasting Group Television Studios

Nexstar Broadcasting Group is making a group lead purchase this year of Anton/Bauer gear from AZCAR Digital Products, a division of AZCAR, to power more than 70 Panasonic P2 HD cameras for nine of its stations.
Anton/Bauer is currently in use at other Nexstar stations. Rick Stople Nexstar Broadcasting Group Director of Engineering, said: "Anton/Bauer's Dionic-90 Lithium-Ion batteries were chosen to power the Panasonic HPX-500 cameras because of Anton/Bauer's legacy of battery performance, reliability, features and support that result in smooth ENG operations.
"The addition of the Anton/Bauer Tandem-70 charger/power supplies allow fast charging of the batteries and a reduction in the amount of gear carried by each videographer. Additionally, the Anton/Bauer batteries have unique characteristics that interact with the operation of the Panasonic HPX-500 cameras."
The Anton/Bauer UltraLight 2 was also selected as standard equipment for the Panasonic HPX-500 cameras. In addition, Anton/Bauer's revolutionary ElipZ battery and ElightZ on-camera light system will be used for the Panasonic HPX-200 P2 HD cameras, providing cost efficiency and a higher performance that's twice as long as the largest Panasonic battery while simultaneously powering the light.
In total, more than 100 Dionic-90 and ElipZ batteries, 70 chargers and 70 lights comprise the majority of the Anton/Bauer products in this acquisition.
Among the nine stations benefitting from the Anton/Bauer purchase are: KARK-TV in Little Rock AR; KODE-TV and KSNF-TV in Joplin, MO; WFXW-TV in Terre Haute, IN; WCUA-TV in Champaign, IL; KNWA-TV in Fayetteville, AR; WQRF-TV in Rockland, IL; WBRE-TV and WYOU-TV in the Wilkes Barre/Scranton Market.
