    CORE SWX DEBUTS NEW INNOVATIVE POWER SOLUTIONS FOR THE PRO VIDEO MARKET AT IBC 2019

    Next generation lithium ion98whbrick battery, rapid quad charger with colorful LCD touchscreen, and a pro style BP-A style batteryfor Canon cameras.

     

    AMSTERDAM, SEPTEMBER 11, 2019Core SWX, a leader in battery and charging solutions, announces new innovative power solutions ahead of IBC 2019 (Booth 12.G71).  Aimed at the both the cine and broadcast markets, the Hypercore NEO is the next generation of power solutions with features that have never been seen before in lithium ion battery packs.   To complement the brick batteries, Core SWX releases a new rapid quad charger with a color touchscreen LCD, the Fleet Quantum. The new Canon style battery pack was specifically designed with Canon cameras accpepting the BP-A style battery pack in mind such as the new Canon C500 Mark II.

    “Being in what is now an inundated battery market, provides us the opportunity to continue to set ourselves a part, and we’re doing it again with the launch our Hypercore NEO line,” says Ross Kanarek, CEO, Core SWX. “The Neo line took years of suggestions from our customers, and we’ve incorporated all the features into one pack to provide the most complete and comprehensive 14v on-camera power solution ever offered to the market.”

    The Hypercore NEO line consists of gold mount and v-mount mini 98wh lithium ion battery packs capable of handling 16A peak loads, 12A continuous. The batteries were constructed similar to the award winning Helix battery line, in terms of being built more modular, which reduces cabling and maximizes product integrity. They are put together like building blocks within a very small battery housing, reducing the chance of a failure due to a drop. Other features similar to Helix are the new Core SWX intuitive backlit multipurpose LCD on the front of packs, and RFID to receive all the battery vitals to your smartphone via a touch on the front of the pack to the VoltBridgeID app that will available in the iTunes app store shortly. 

    Furthermore, the packs are equipped with a “smart” powertap to allow users to power any 12vdc device while also receiving all battery data from the port. One feature exclusive to NEO, is the advanced 5v USB port that doesn’t just charge your phone anymore. It offers additional functionality as a firmware upgrade port, so users will never be left behind as we continue to develop. Between the price point ($249 USD), shipping now availability, and features equipped on the NEO battery packs, it makes the choice a no-brainer.

    Complementing the NEO packs is the new addition to our Fleet chargers, the Fleet Quantum.  The quad charger offers a highly efficient 4A 2×2 simultaneous charge. When four packs are connected to the charger, the charger will detect which two packs have the most charge capacity, and first charge those to full capacity.  With a large color touchscreen LCD with graphical user interface, the charger provides the utmost transparency on stored smart battery data including state of charge, cycle count, capacity data, etc. The Fleet Quantum will be available in November for $879 USD. 

    Lastly, Core’s new addition to the NANO-M battery series answers the need for Canon camera operators who have been looking for a more “pro” style battery option that is equipped with a powertap, a USB, and 4-stage LED gauge. The 98wh pack will work on cameras accepting the Canon BP-A style battery such as Canon C200, C300 Mark II, and the new Canon C500 Mark II. The NANO-C98 pack will charge on OEM Canon chargers, and will be shipping in November at $245 USD.

    These new products will mark their first debut at Core SWX’s booth (12.G71) during the 2019 IBC Show in Amsterdam. 

    CORE SWX INTRODUCES NEW INNOVATIVE POWER SOLUTIONS FOR THE CINE MARKET AT NAB 2019

     

    Mount Plates for high end Cine Cameras, L-Series battery for SmallHD Focus, new additions to the Voltbridge charger line-up, and a 24v standalone power supply

    PLAINVIEW, NY, APRIL 4, 2019Core SWX, a leader in battery and charging solutions, announces innovative power solutions ahead of NAB 2019 (Booth C6633). Aimed at the cine market, the Core HLX mount plates were designed with specific high end cine cameras in mind such the Arri Alexa LF, Mini-LF, RED Ranger and Sony Venice. The HLX Power Management Control (PMC) mount plates can be used in conjunction with the new Cube24, an ideal power supply for the influx of high voltage accepting cinema cameras in the market.  The NPF flat pack was specifically designed to be form fitting on SmallHD’s 5-inch Focus monitor.  The Voltbridge charger provides yet another robust charging option.

    “We continue to listen to the market and deliver solutions that are in need,” says Ross Kanarek, CEO, Core SWX. “We are excited to offer this array of new products to the different sectors within our market.  The offerings speak to our continued effort to offer efficient, reliable solutions for cameras while on-set, as well as more compact solutions to power additional accessories.”

    The new HLX PMC mount plates take power management concerns away from the camera, and provide a “hot swappable” platform between on-board and block battery/AC mains, while providing transparency to the AC on set.  The on-board LCD monitors input percentage/voltage of the power sources, as well as current draw of the entire camera setup.  The mount plate system uses a standard 2-pin Fischer connector for the power input on the plates, simplifying the array of cables production companies and rental companies need to inventory, while addressing many different camera makes.  The mount plates are available for on-board mounting to ARRI cameras, rail mounting for the Arri Mini LF and Alexa, and gold mount and v-mount backing for the RED Ranger and Sony Venice.

    Complementing the HLX mount plates is the Cube24, a 200w AC to DC 24volt power supply.  The lightweight, all aluminum Cube24 is capable of powering the most power hungry cameras through the two 3-pin XLR outputs providing up to 200w combined. The fan-less power supply has internal protections to protect the device against accidental misuse, shutting down and the resetting to operational status. AC input accepts 100-240VAC, making it useable worldwide.

    Core’s NPF Flatpack answers the call of the content creation sector of the market who want a low profile, high power NPF L-Series type battery pack.  The 7800mah pack provides the highest capacity offered in an L-Series form, while adding a 4-stage LED gauge and a DC power input, accepting 10-17vdc. The DC input allows you to “powertap” into the pack to simultaneously power the monitor and charge the battery, as well has a UPS function should DC power be interrupted the monitor will immediately switch to battery power.

    Rounding out the new offerings are two new additions to the Voltbridge charger lineup.  The FLEETQ4Ai and Q4Si chargers are a robust, travel version of the ever popular FLEET Micro Voltbridge chargers.  The new economical charger models are without front LCD and touch panel, yet still offer full battery fleet management control and diagnostic capabilities via the Voltbridge app(available on iTunes and Playstore).

    These new products will mark their first debut at Core SWX’s booth (C6633) during the 2019 NAB Show.

    CORE SWX DIVES INTO “SHARK WEEK” 2018 WITH EMMY® AWARD-WINNING FILMMAKER ANDY CASAGRANDE

     

    Hypercore 9 Mini Battery Puts the Charge into Discovery Channel’s 30th Installment of Television’s Longest Running Summer Event

    CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA, JULY 30, 2018 – For Emmy® Award-winning wildlife cinematographer Andy Casagrande, getting up close and personal with the deadliest sharks on Earth is just another day at the office. When Casagrande’s services were called upon for Discovery Channel’s 30th installment of its hugely popular “Shark Week,” he dove at the chance, literally. To capture the underwater images of these powerful fish in their natural environment, Casagrande turned to  Core SWX, a leader in battery and charging solutions, ensuring that none of the heart-stopping, frenzied shark action was missed.

     

    Casagrande shot 11 films for this year’s “Shark Week” installment. His travels took him all over the world, with stops in Mexico, the Bahamas, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. “Throughout all my travels I was using Core SWX’s Hypercore 9 Mini (HC9 Mini) battery,” he says. “Along with its small form-factor, the HC9 Mini is extremely reliable and you get excellent run time out of the battery. The HC9 Mini was a huge help in filming the first great white shark ever to breach on camera in New Zealand.”

     

    Casagrande used the HC9 Mini to power the 8K RED Weapon® and Phantom Flex 4K cameras used on his dives. “The HC9 Minis are great because they fit really well in the small, compact Gates underwater housings that I like to use,” he adds. “The battery is super low-profile, rugged, grippy and great for the field. While filming Orcas in New Zealand, there was a lot of jumping off small rubber boats, so I had to use a smaller camera housing for the new 8K RED Weapon camera. The HC9 Mini was the best battery to fit into the smaller camera housing and gave us a very small footprint.”

    Core-SWX_Andy-Casagrande_web

    Measuring in at 3.54 in. x 4.65 in. x 1.90 in. (.09 m. x .12 m. x .05 m.) and weighing only 1.4 lbs. (861.8 g.), the HC9 Mini is the perfect solution for lighter and more mobile camera setups. The battery is available in three versions, including V-mount, RED-specific and a Gold Mount that is compatible with Anton/Bauer® chargers.

     

    In addition to the HC9 Mini’s reliability, Casagrande likes its powering abilities. “What’s really nice about the HC9 Mini is its two different taps,” he continues. “It has a Ptap, so you can power any Ptap accessory, which is huge. It also has a great USB port, so you can charge your phone or GoPro, or run any USB-driven technology. Core SWX also added protective plastic caps, so, if you are out in the elements, there is no direct water or moisture hitting your Ptap or USB.”

     

    With travel becoming more and more difficult due to restrictions on battery sizes, the HC9 Mini is a dream to transport. It provides 98wh and, because of its size, users can fly with an almost unlimited amount of them. The battery also clearly states that it is air travel compliant, making it legal and safe.

     

    Throughout his filming, Casagrande found the HC9 Mini to be reliable, fast-charging and very versatile. “All around, Core products have been very helpful with my filmmaking during the past year,” he adds. “It’s easy to see why the HC9 Mini has become my favorite battery.”

     

    The HC9 Mini is a 98wh (14.8v) battery with a 12A load. With the latest in Lithium Ion technology, the battery also comes with an LED back-lit run-time LCD on the front of the pack, which allows users to know how much capacity is left when in use and indicates remaining charge time while connected to a charger. This allows users to plan their shoots down to the minute. The RED-specific version can communicate directly with a RED camera’s LCD/VF. The HC9 Mini’s battery cells are encased in an over-molded, rubberized housing, providing additional protection against accidental impacts that may occur when operating in rugged conditions.

     

    “Shark Week” is television’s longest-running and eagerly awaited summer TV event, delivering all-new ground-breaking shark stories, and incorporating innovative research technology to reveal compelling insight on some of the most unique shark species in the world.

    CORE SWX BRAVES THE HEAT IN CHAD ON A MISSION TO HELP RESTORE THE BLACK RHINO POPULATION

    Company’s Hypercore 9 Mini Battery Used with RED EPIC-W Camera for National Geographic Documentary

    REPUBLIC OF CHAD, AFRICA, JUNE 26, 2018 – As part of a continent-wide mission to restore wildlife and wild places, six black rhinoceroses were recently flown from South Africa to Zakouma National Park in Chad, where the threatened animal has not roamed in nearly five decades. The expedition was captured by Wildlife Cameramen Alexander Braczkowski and Steve Winter, supported by Core SWX, a leader in battery and charging solutions, for a forthcoming National Geographic documentary that will appear online.

     

    The pair were also filming on behalf of the African Parks, a conservation NGO that has managed Zakouma National Park since 2010 on behalf of the Chadian Government. The organization, which currently manages 15 parks in nine countries, has undertaken similar reintroductions and translocations, most recently lions to Malawi, rhinos to Rwanda and 520 elephants to a new home in Malawi. This rhino reintroduction was particularly historic in expanding the rhinos range to an area once devastated by poaching, but in the last eight years has recovered. The organization relied on Braczkowski and Winter to document the recent rhino relocation. For ease of filming in the field – which requires fast response – and ability to travel, the pair turned to Core SWX’s Hypercore 9 (HC9) Mini batteries, which they used in conjunction with the RED EPIC-W Camera.

    Alex-and-Steve_BTS2_web

    “These batteries are incredibly small, which provides us with an added practicality that is necessary for handheld filming styles,” explains Braczkowski. “I can’t tell you how helpful the Core Minis were in reducing the payload of our camera system while we were filming from the Jeep or jumping out to capture on the fly.”

     

    This feature was especially useful during a day of shooting when the team encountered a herd of 15 elephants just a short distance from the vehicles. Though the animals typically appear in the area each day, to water themselves, the sheer number was more than expected – and the videographers knew they must capture the footage.

     

    “Knowing that I could run those batteries for upwards of 70 minutes each, without major fluctuations was incredibly important,” continues Braczkowski. “Further, I knew that the battery wasn’t going to fail on me in the extremely hot weather, upwards of 113 degrees Fahrenheit, maybe more. This ruggedness is vital to a project of this nature, because this is once in a lifetime footage we’re collecting.”

     

    With travel becoming more and more difficult due to restrictions on battery sizes, the pair turned to the HC9 Mini battery for its travel compliancy. “We used Core products because of the ease of use and safety during our flight, as we are able to legally fly with them as part of our carry-on luggage,” says Braczkowski. “We needed to get to the field to set up and start shooting very quickly, so we took a chance on these batteries. We were so impressed with all its features that Steve [Winter] is already planning to use them for his next National Geographic project.”

    At only 1.4 lbs. (861.8 g.) and 3.54 in. x 4.65 in. x 1.90 in. (.09 m. x .12 m. x .05 m.), the HC9 Mini is the perfect complement for mobile camera setups. The HC9 Mini’s battery cells are incased in an over-molded, rubberized housing, providing additional protection against accidental impacts that may occur when operating in rugged conditions. Its trio of options – the V-mount, RED-specific and Gold Mount, which is compatible with Anton/Bauer® chargers – make it ideal for any established videographer to incorporate into their existing kits.

     

    The HC9 Mini is a 98wh (14.8v) battery with a 12A load. With the latest in Lithium Ion technology, the battery also comes with an LED backlit runtime LCD on the front of the battery pack that lets users know how much battery time is left when in use and indicates remaining charge time while connected to a charger. The RED-specific version can communicate directly with a RED camera’s LCD/VF.

    CORE SWX BATTERIES INCREASE CYCLE RATINGS TO 2,000

    Nano98, HCS-98 and HC9 Mini Batteries Return Impressive Cycle Ratings

     

    PLAINVIEW, NY, MAY 30, 2018 ─ Core SWX, a leader in battery and charging solutions, announces the cycle ratings of its Nano98, Hypercore Slim 98 (HCS-98) and Hypercore 9 (HC9) Mini battery packs have all doubled, allowing for 2,000 cycles. Core is the only battery manufacturer in today’s market delivering results of this scale.

    CYCLE-graphic_white

    Battery cells naturally age, which results in a gradual reduction in capacity over time. Core SWX’s proprietary battery management firmware assures the cells employed are always balanced and at an optimal state to withstand continuous operation for extended periods of time while maintaining service life. With an increased cycle rating, Core is providing its customers with a greater return on investment.

     

    “Every time we design a new battery or series, the cells are tested thoroughly for six months to a year, prior to release, to ensure exemplary quality and performance,” says Ross Kanarek, CEO, Core SWX. “After a year in the market, these pack series are delivering results to give us the confidence to increase this rating.”

     

    Along with a high cycle rating, Core battery packs are some of the few available in the industry that keep cycle count for better inventory management and to better track the life cycle of the battery. Cycle count is calculated based on the use of all the battery’s power. By tracking this information, Core products allow production and rental companies, broadcast stations and owner/operators to more closely monitor the battery usage and ROI.

     

    “The goal is to provide our client base with the best user experience and the highest return on investment, consistent with the finest packs in the industry. Core is proud to say that we are producing battery packs of such high quality,” says Kanarek. “Our customers are investing in products that have proven their worth.”

     

    This cycle rating is inclusive to battery packs purchased within the past year.

     

    Check out these battery packs along with other advanced Core SWX power solutions at Cine Gear Expo 2018 (Booth 32).

    CORE SWX KEEPS THE CAMERAS ROLLING FOR SONY PLAYSTATION COMMERCIAL SHOOTS

     Hypercore Solutions Provide Long-Lasting Power for Veteran DP Kevin Otterness

    CHICAGO, APRIL 25, 2018 – Kevin Otterness has spent the past 25 years honing his craft and building a reputation as one of the industries most respected cinematographers and directors of photography (DP). Otterness understands the importance of working with reliable equipment that can handle the extremely long hours and grueling production schedule that comes with the job. On four recent commercial shoots for Sony Playstation, he relied on a selection of equipment from Core SWX, a leader in battery and charging solutions, to ensure the cameras stayed powered and rolling.

     

    Otterness began using Core SWX products about five years ago after having ongoing issues with other manufacturers’ batteries. He kept having complications including V-Mount release buttons breaking off and batteries not holding their power over time. Otterness knew he needed to invest in a reliable power solution, which is when he discovered Core SWX. Over the last four years, he has been building up his Core product inventory, which now includes the Core Fleet-Q4S Charger V-Mount, V-Mount HotSwap for RED, Hypercore 98 RED batteries, Hypercore SLIM 8 RED batteries and Hypercore 9 Mini (HC9 Mini) RED batteries.

    Kevin-Otterness_news-web

    “When shooting multiple commercial spots on such a short turnaround schedule, as was the case with the Sony Playstation job, a DP can really feel the pressure to make sure everything runs smoothly,” says Otterness. “The director and gaffer wanted to see the framing of the first shot before blocking and lighting the scene, which took an hour and a half. This is where my Core batteries shined.”

     

    Otterness has eight Core batteries in his kit at all times, along with a Dual Mount HotSwap for his RED camera, allowing for continuous battery power. For his shoots, he uses two batteries to power an HD 703 OLED portable director’s monitor, leaving six batteries for the camera, which are in rotation at all times. To ensure uninterrupted power, he also relies on the Core Fleet Charger, which quickly charges four batteries simultaneously.

     

    Another advantage of running two Core batteries with the Dual Hotswap on the back of a RED camera is greater counterbalance. According to Otterness, “One of the Sony Playstation spots required me to be handheld/shoulder mounted all day. When going handheld with my RED camera, I use two of my Hypercore 98 RED brick batteries. This gives me a nice counterbalance without making the camera rig too heavy. In addition, I use my Hypercore SLIM 8’s and my new HC9 Mini’s when I want to get the camera package as small as possible – it helps me get into those really tight spaces. What I like most about my new HC9 Mini batteries is that the P-tap is on top of the battery, not the side. This is a great option when having to plug-in additional accessories, like an EVF or an AC monitor.”

     

    Otterness has used Core solutions for his work on features, music videos and commercials with no issues. “I’ve never had to use Core customer support and I think that says a lot about the company’s products. They just work,” adds Otterness. “Not only do Core’s products meet my needs, they exceed them. I don’t have to worry about how or if I’m going to have enough power to get me through my day. My Core batteries go on every shoot with me. I never leave home without them.”

     

    CORE SWX BRINGS FLEET BATTERY MANAGEMENT TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH ITS MOBILE-BASED VOLTBRIDGE PLATFORM AT NAB 2018

    Company also Debuts Fleet Qi and Fleet QMi Bluetooth-Enabled Chargers

    PLAINVIEW, NY, APRIL 9, 2018 ─ Core SWX, a leader in battery and charging solutions, introduces the Voltbridge Fleet Battery Management Platform along with Bluetooth Low Energy enabled versions of its Quad Fleet and Quad Fleet Micro Chargers, Fleet Qi and Fleet QMi, at NAB 2018 (Booth C5633). This innovative platform allows a single user to oversee dozens of professional camera battery chargers and hundreds of battery packs, all controlled and monitored by a mobile device via its dedicated app. Core SWX also announces the Fleet Qi and Fleet QMi quad chargers with built in Bluetooth capability to complement the Voltbridge system for a complete battery management solution.

     

    “Camera battery power is the most critical part of any mobile/field production. With the Voltbridge platform and new Fleet Qi and QMi chargers, large production/broadcast houses, as well as professional video and cinema rental companies will be able to manage their battery fleet,” says Ross Kanarek, CEO, Core SWX. “This battery management system will also help to reduce the risk of potential Li-Ion battery related issues, by allowing the user to quickly determine and address any battery packs that may be of concern.”

     

    Building upon Core SWX’s patented wireless battery communication platform, Voltbridge streamlines the process of determining what V-mount and Gold mount battery packs are viable, and which should be inspected more closely by simultaneously monitoring multiple chargers and those batteries connected to it. It also offers the ability to sort, highlight and select hundreds of connected battery packs’ based on a variety of smart data so users can quickly identify packs with diminished service life or cell imbalance, providing an opportunity to test and evaluate the packs through the system. Once the test and calibration is completed, the user can view or email the results of the pack, to maintain a service log. Prior to this innovation, service technicians were required to review each charger’s display manually, and the most sophisticated charging systems’ LCD would only display the data for up to four battery packs at a time.

     

    Lithium-Ion battery packs are the most prevalently used batteries in the production industry today, however there are well documented, inherent risks with the chemistry. The quicker you learn of a potential issue, the better the chance battery capacity can be restored through Core SWX’s proprietary cell balancing algorithm. This helps maximize the ROI and service life of the pack, as well as preventing a potential future battery related concern. The Voltbridge Fleet battery management system also allows users to remotely initiate Core SWX’s SafeFly mode to discharge packs to under 30 percent charge capacity, which is the current Lithium-Ion threshold for safe transport according to the FAA and IATA.

     

    The Fleet Qi and Fleet QMi quad battery chargers support numerous battery packs, including those from Core SWX, RED and Anton/Bauer, providing peace-of-mind to multiple crews on location with legacy packs or rental batteries. The new chargers have four independent charge bays, allowing each bay to focus on the individual battery connected, completing a recharge on four 98wh battery packs in 2.5 hours.

    The Hydracore 100 provides even more travel-friendly options to Core’s product line, as NiMH batteries are currently permitted in carry-on baggage. Weighing a light 3.3lbs and measuring 3.8″ x 5.87″ x 2.95″, the pack is 2lbs lighter and 20 percent smaller than the most common batteries in the NiMH space. The Hydracore 100 is a Gold Mount battery supporting up to a 10A load and offering 100wh of power. Hydracore 100 was designed to be fully compatible with Anton/Bauer chargers to ensure the pack will seamlessly integrate into customers’ diverse battery fleets.

    The Powerbase Edge is a small-form cine and DSLR battery with the versatility of two mounting options – as a V-Mount pack on cine cameras, such as the RED or Blackmagic Design Ursa Mini, or to the bottom of a DSLR camera. The 14.8v Lithium-ion battery pack includes one 8v port, two USB outputs and two power tap outputs, one of which being a SmartTap. The pack also features a built-in runtime LCD and a quick release plate for fast detachment from under the camera or rigs.

     

    “Weighing only 1.3lbs, the Powerbase Edge doesn’t compromise on power,” adds Kanarek. “It can withstand the draw of a full size cinematic camera, providing customers with an extended runtime to meet an array of the highest shooting demands.”

     

    Both the Hydracore 100 and Powerbase Edge will be on display at Core SWX’s booth (C5633)  during the 2018 NAB Show, alongside other recently introduced power solutions, including the Nano-VBR98.

     

    CORE SWX PRODUCTS GIVE STEADICAM OPERATOR CONFIDENCE DURING UNPREDICTABLE SHOOTS

     

    Hypercore 150 and 98 Batteries Provide the Long-Lasting Power Needed on Music Video and Television Show Sets

    ATLANTA, GA, MARCH 14, 2018 – Atlanta-based Steadicam Operator Jessica Lopez has worked on big-name shoots ranging from the Wiz Khalifa “Something New” music video to the CW Valor series. While the needs of each shoot vary, one thing remains consistent throughout, Lopez’s certainty that Core SWX’s Hypercore 150  and  Hypercore 98  batteries will provide the lasting power needed for her Steadicam and accessories, no matter how long the day goes.

     

    The typical shoot day for Lopez lasts 10- to 16-hours on top of traveling from location to location, leaving her and her equipment constantly on the move with limited opportunities for recharging. With busy days filled with variables and unknowns, she has come to rely on Core’s Hypercore batteries for their slim design and performance consistency. “Reliability and weight are definitely the two most important things,” says Lopez. “I go into each job with a number of unknown variables that require my full attention. Core batteries are the one thing that’s always predictable and doesn’t require a second thought, allowing me to focus more on the creative aspects of my work.”

     

    In addition to all day performance, Lopez has found the Hypercore 150’s power to weight ratio to be beneficial, allowing her freedom from the heavy weight that sometimes comes with powerful batteries. “I can get more power out of the Hypercore 150’s without changing them out, doing longer takes and not weighing down my rig,” says Lopez. “Having a lightweight solution without compromising power is the best of both worlds.”

     

    Lopez was recently on location in Malibu for music video shoots for Wiz Khalifa and Julia Michaels. These projects allowed no room for error when it came to having the proper equipment. “These were situations where I needed to have all my gear handy, because the locations were remote with no opportunity to charge my batteries,” recalls Lopez. “For example, the Wiz Khalifa music video was shot with various cameras and the Steadicam, which were exclusively and successfully powered by Core, without a glitch.”

     

    Lopez also has great experience with the Hypercore batteries on television shoots, most recently on Valor, which is a drama based on one of the first female U.S. Army pilots. Lopez draws inspiration from this storyline, as she arms herself with Core batteries to instill confidence in herself. She has found that the products’ compatibility with various chargers, including Anton/Bauer, gives her the convenient ability to “run and gun” on set and to scale down the size of her kit.

     

    Not only has Lopez experienced positive things with Core’s products, she has also developed a great professional relationship with the company itself. “I am happy to be a Core SWX customer,” notes Lopez. “The contacts I’ve worked with know the gear first hand and make themselves available to work with me on an individual basis.”
