The CINE VCLX Portable Power System has been honored with a Scientific and Engineering Award (Academy Plaque) from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (A.M.P.A.S®).
A.M.P.A.S® Scientific and Technical Awards honour technologies and solutions that have demonstrated a proven record of contributing significant value to the process of making motion pictures.
Designed and created by Anton/Bauer® engineers Joe Murtha, William Frederick and Jim Markland, the CINE VCLX power system provides ultimate power performance, extended run times and flexibility, and allows users to not only power cameras, but also the supplementary equipment, such as lighting, required for production.
"We couldn't be more pleased to have received such a distinguished honour,” says Dan Fitzpatrick, general manager, Anton/Bauer. “Our engineering team consistently strives to create solutions that are specific to the needs of our end users. The CINE VCLX has become an industry standard, powerful enough to safely and reliably run cameras such as the ARRI® ALEXA for more than four hours, while also powering 200W HMI lights, LED panels and portable microwave units. There’s no greater stamp of approval than recognition from The Academy®.
