NAB 2016, Konova introduces the Sun Jib available in three different lengths (S400, S700, and S900). The design is slightly different than most jibs as the self leveling mechanism is completely enclosed into a single bar.

The SunJib is not only simple and fast to setup, but also designed specifically to be 'Vibration and Flex Free' (no wiggle) allowing for smoother camera motion. They claim that you can stand a coin up on it's side and boom the SunJib without the coin falling over. This precision and smooth operation is helpful for longer focal length lenses, or close up Macro work where any movement would be highly exaggerated.

Has it happened to you? You're right in the middle of an interview and all of a sudden one light goes out. It appears the battery in your light has died and so you have to basically start that interview process over. If only you had one central interface to be able to view the power levels of every battery on set, knowing exactly how much time you have left, and which ones need to be swapped out. Well, now there is such a tool.

Our friends with Runplayback.com coverage at NAB 2015 visits the Switronix booth showcasing new battery solutions and battery management systems. Some of their latest items on the floor like the VoltBridge, a battery level monitor platform that utilizes a Bluetooth transmitter and mobile app; the Hypercore Prime, a 2-part designed, TSA travel friendly battery pack and the Hypercine, a block battery that can be used to power multiple battery packs while providing 392wh as one unit.
