Anton/Bauer, a producer of batteries, chargers, lighting and other key mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries, introduces its latest “Gold Mount” solution, the QRC-CA940,which is dedicated to the new camera by Canon, the EOS C300.

The Canon EOS C300was designed specifically to meet the needs of cinema industry professionals, the company says. The camera features a 35mm Canon complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) sensor, the Canon DIGIC DV III image processor and 50 Mbps 4:2:2 codec, enabling the EOS C300 to provide cinema-quality movie capture in a modular and portable system, according to the firm.

To help streamline battery management for Canon EOS C300 users, Anton/Bauer unveils the QRC-CA940, a 7/14 Gold Mount which provides 7.2V power to the camera via DC connector.

“While the QRC-CA940 operates similar to our other 7/14 Gold Mounts, this particular mount will have three PowerTapoutputs where typically we only have one,” says Shin Minowa, Anton/Bauer’s vice president of marketing and business development. “The more accessories we can power in addition to the camera, the better. Understanding our customers’ professional applications and goals, this Gold Mount was designed so that users will not have to monitor multiple batteries, therefore reducing downtime in the field, as well as the number of chargers needing to be transported,” he said.

In addition, the QRC-CA940 was designed to be compatible with the company’s mounting bracket for 15- or 19-mm rod systems, the MATRIX Cheese Plate, or adapted to third-party support systems (15- or 19mm clamp kits sold separately).
