Westbury, NY –  At IBC 2015, we will be exhibiting our new PRIME battery series for digital cinema and video.

The Hypercore Prime employs a 2-part system to provide a higher capacity, air travel friendly battery solution, which can be legally transported without restrictions under IATA, ICAO, and UN regulations. With a total redesign and rethinking of a greater then 98wh solution, the Hypercore Prime may be the most complete battery offering in the industry today. The battery pack can sustain larger power draws to easily handle digital cinema cameras, like the Arri Alex, Amira, Epic, Sony F65 and Phantom. 

In addition to its 2-part design, the battery pack was scaled vertically, to better distribute weight across the battery mount, and reducing depth by one half inch versus the older Hypercore 190 design. The new design also features a large backlit runtime LCD on the front. An LED grid, which wraps around to the front of the battery complements the LCD, providing charge status when charging, and can be seen from afar. As with all Switronix brick battery offerings, the Prime is available in V-mount and 3-stud mounts; and have an integrated P-tap connection on the side of the battery allowing you to power any 12vdc device. An additional output of a USB allows accessible charging for your mobile device. The PRIME packs have multiple safety sensors to detect temperature, and protect against over/under charge and discharge, ensuring optimal battery performance.

An added addition of a "slimmy" adapter, allows the user to detach the back half of the battery pack and use it standalone. The slimmy adapter converts the battery pack into a useable power resource for gimbals, and other camera stabilization devices.

With the release of Switronix' Hypercine, a block battery alternative, the Hypercore Prime provides 760wh of air travel friendly, Li-Ion power.

The Prime will be shipping in October and have an MSRP of $685.
