Helix is the most complete on-board battery system ever offered to the cinematic industry. The system encompasses all the features of Hypercore, with the added function of dual 14v/28v* simultaneous voltage output, answering the call for better designed and performing, on-board high voltage solutions.
Leveraging a proprietary, patent pending technology, Helix is ultra efficient, providing nearly lossless power transmission at a 99% efficiency rate to high voltage operating equipment. Helix’s unique design allows it to output up to 33.6v, within the top range of high voltage acceptance, thus drawing less current, creating less heat and extending both operational runtime and product longevity.
Helix’s uniquely designed infrastructure allows the pack to function as a standard V-mount or Gold mount 14v pack in all applications without the fear of accidentally transmitting high voltage. Along with standard powering applications, Helix charges on all standard v-mount and gold mount Lithium-Ion equipment, including Anton/Bauer, allowing it to seamlessly integrate into your current fleet of battery packs.
*The mean voltage rating of Helix’s outputs are 14v and 28v, with a maximum charge rating of 16.8v and 33.6v. Most high voltage range equipment accepts up to 34v.

Director of Photography, Renan Ozturk, travels the globe filming in the most remote locations from Mount Everest, to the deserts of Utah. Often the conditions he shoots in stresses his equipment to the point of failure while filming. Along with extreme temperatures, his shoots are usually incredibly remote, requiring his equipment to be the utmost reliable.
With high-end production cameras, like the Alexa LF, Venice, RED Ranger and (technically) the new Alexa Mini LF starting to favour 24v over 12v power, one of the biggest issues is, well…power. Do you go with 12v to 24v up-conversion, or invest in a set of 24v batteries? Let’s look at the pros and cons of each:
