PLAINVIEW, NY, June 22, 2023 ─ Core SWX, a renowned provider of battery and charging solutions, is delighted to collaborate with MultiDyne, the industry leader in signal conversion and fiber-optic-based transport systems, to integrate the cutting-edge Helix battery plates into their SilverBack-APE 24vdc device. This partnership leverages Core SWX’s Helix, Native Dual Voltage™ battery system to empower customers with seamless high voltage integration on the Silverback-APE, revolutionizing the capabilities of digital cinema cameras such as the ARRI Alexa 35 and RED Raptor XL, transforming them into powerful studio cameras.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with MultiDyne and apply our Helix battery standard to their innovative SilverBack-APE 24vdc device,” expressed Ross Kanarek, CEO of Core SWX. “The Helix system stands as the most widely adopted solution for high voltage, offering unparalleled compatibility not only with the available high voltage cameras but also with a diverse range of production accessories.”
The Helix battery system offers exceptional versatility by delivering native high voltage to compatible devices when Helix Max batteries are paired with a Helix battery plate. Additionally, the Helix Max packs function flawlessly as a native 14v pack when used with 14v powered devices. This flexibility allows professionals to streamline their equipment setup and optimize their workflow, ensuring maximum efficiency and performance.
Kanarek continues; “Our company has taken the initiative to develop a robust OEM program for the battery platform, fostering partnerships with leading cinema and production equipment manufacturers. This commitment ensures that the Helix system seamlessly integrates with a wide array of industry-standard equipment. By integrating our Helix system into MultiDyne’s product, we are enabling filmmakers and content creators to achieve unparalleled results in the studio environment.”
The MultiDyne Silverback-APE 24vdc is designed specifically to meet the high voltage requirements of digital cinema cameras, offering unparalleled performance and functionality. By harnessing the power of the Core SWX Helix battery packs, the Silverback-APE provides an efficient and reliable solution for professionals in the film and television industry.
“The dual voltage design of the Core Helix plates makes them the ideal solution for MultiDyne’s SilverBack-APE 24vdc enabled fiber optic camera adapters because they provide the option for an end user to use the same SilverBack-APE adapter on 24vdc and 14vdc digital cinema cameras. This is a key feature for rental customers and owner- operators who have multiple camera platforms,” said Jesse Foster, VP of Products and Western Sales at MultiDyne. “Our systems have traditionally supported Gold Mount and V mount options, and the Core Helix battery plates allow us to continue to offer the same flexibility to end users.”
