(Ashford, Kent, UK--March 26, 2018) Hawk-Woods
, innovative developer of broadcast power solutions, today announces that its 26v Reel Power lithium-ion battery is the first and only power source approved for on-board use with ARRI’s new Alexa LF large format camera system. The battery is capable of powering Alexa LF even when recording natively in 4K, when power draw is at its peak. Reel Power batteries have been used as an on-board power supply with other large-format cameras, including the ARRI Alexa 65, for years and have proven a reliable solution.
To process the increased pixel count while maintaining optimal image quality, ALEXA LF draws 120W and 160W while recording. “Reel Power batteries were designed precisely for high voltage, high-speed and high-pixel count cameras,” said Hawk-Woods sales manager Jason Stewart. “Operators can take advantage of the camera’s unique ability to capture unique, virtually three-dimensional looks.”
Reel Power batteries are available in three capacities, 100w, 150w and 200w. Hawk-Woods’ proprietary low-resistance cell technology facilitates high discharge and improved cycle life. All include a built-in fuel gauge and a total battery protection system that guards against over-discharge, connection to an incompatible charger, short circuits and excess temperature. They come with a 2-year warranty. Hawk-Woods RP-CFA1 battery adapter is required to use Reel Power batteries with ARRI ALEXA LF.
Reel Power batteries and other Hawk-Woods products are available in the U.S. through Manios Digital & Film. Manios Digital & Film will be demonstrating Hawk-Woods power solutions at NAB 2018, C9020
