An interview from the 2016 International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam with Jose Flores of Switronix. Switronix is a leader in the market of batteries and charging solutions for the Digital Cinema and Professional Video industry. Switronix continues to reinvent themselves with creative power solution like their new HyperCine and Hypercore Series to make your production easier and more power efficient as we ‘push the envelope’ with new LED lighting. In this interview Jose talks with us about their HyperCore series & new TorchLED BT250.
The TorchLED Bolt 250 levarages a newly patented Refractory Lens Technology providing a 250W equivalent light output while 40 percent thinner than its predecessor, the Bolt 220R. The Bolt 250 draws 13W of power and includes a separate on/off switch.
Featuring a wireless remote, the Bolt 250 can control the light from up to 250 feet away (non LOS). The nine channel remote control and magnetic diffusion filter allows users to control on/off, select color temperature and adjust light intensity. With the remote capability, users can easily adjust light settings at the tip of their fingers. Additionally, the Bolt 250 allows users to bank up to 10 lights per channel, allowing for control of the lights in unison.
The Bolt 250 has an independent knob for color temperature between tungsten (3200K) and daylight (5600K), eliminating the need to mix and match between two dials for the most accurate ambient light. The full 0-100 percent dimming control allows users to change the brightness with no noticeable color shift.
The BT250 also comes with an accessory package that includes a 1/4-20 Swivel Shoe mount, PowerTap cable for DC powering off of a standard 14.4V brick battery and magnetic diffusion filter. It also includes a battery and charger kit, and accepts Sony L-Series batteries.
The Hypercore SLIM series was developed to provide the best in Lithium Ion technology for UAV, Handheld Gimbal and all other applications demanding a low-profile battery pack. We transformed the SLIM HC7's into a work of art with the new HC8 battery packs. From a more angular design, to a new low profile LCD bezel, the HC8's offer the most compact, slim, and sleek design in the industry today. The Hypercore SLIM series is the first line of slim battery packs capable of handling high draws up to 148w (10A) without deterioration in service life nor operablility, perfect for powering cameras ranging from RED to ARRI.
