New products

Our brands Anton/Bauer, Litepanels and Sachtler have launched a number of exciting new products this year and will showcase them at IBC in Amsterdam this September. Get a quick heads-up on these new products in this article.

The ASTRA 1×1 Bi-Color panel is bright, beautiful and functional and has been added to Litepanels extensive range of LED lights. The new star is four times brighter than the existing 1×1 Bi-Color and sets a new standard in form and function.

The ASTRA 1×1 Bi-Color is Litepanels first daylight to tungsten tunable colour model and is paving the way for other starlets to steal the limelight. Users can take control of temperature management by selecting passive or cooling modes.

The new LED is sturdy and lightweight, flexible and strong and provides a higher output and better colour than has ever been seen before with high CRI values. It features a curved yoke design with a wide tilt range, dual integrated cable guides and a combination yoke mounted power supply with a 3-pin XLR locking power connector and optional Gold Mount or V-Mount battery plates.

Which leads to the next star‚ Anton/Bauer’s revolutionary Digital Battery Series. The series has been designed specifically for digital productions and is available in V-Mount and Gold Mount options. These new batteries are ideal for 4K cameras and offer users the best solutions on the market in terms of safety, performance and reliability. They are also perfect for use with any camera and accessory and are available in three sizes – 90, 150 and 190 Wh.

The batteries are finding fans all across the industry; this is what users are saying:

“Anton/Bauer supplied us with all the batteries for the season (of Orange is the New Black) and they performed remarkably! Even under some of the coldest days of the decade we had no issues. It’s a great comfort to have equipment that you can rely on.”
