16x9 Inc. Introduces Bebob Box-VM Carrier for V-Mount Power Supply
16x9 Inc. introduces Bebob Box-VM, the solution for adding a V-Mount power supply to operate on-board camera accessories. Similar in design to the Box-FS and Box-HVR carriers, this ingenious system attaches to the baseplate of the Panasonic HVX-200 and other popular compact HDV cameras, and is designed to hold an IDX V-Mount battery such as the Endura 7 or Endura 7S.
The 14.4V battery power can be supplied directly or converted to 8.4V and is distributed to the system's 1-D-Tap and 3 hirose 4-pin outputs. Plus, the Box-VM features an additional dimmable D-Tap for powering a camera light. Box-VM also serves as a voltage/power adapter between the battery, and the camera and its accessories. The 3 hirose 4-pin connectors deliver 8.4V/12V for the camera's power supply and/or the wireless microphone receiver.
