The Elements Epic Breakout Binary (19mm) is an accessory that helps make a good camera even better. The goal of the Breakout Binary is to get all of the Epic's IO bundled into one replaceable 22-pin cable. This cable now carries the signal, control, start/stop, power, timecode and Gig-E cables all in one. The Breakout Binary is a hot-swappable device that also accepts house power via an 8-pin 3B lemo commonly found on the Anton Bauer VCLX and other AC power supplies such as the Genesis power supply.
The Binary will draw the higher current, whether it be from the on-board batteries or from house power. Built into the Binary is a power distribution box with three 12V 2-pin lemo outputs. Also built into the Binary is a Digital Amplifier for dual SDI outputs. Next to the outputs is a BNC pass-thru which allows you to loop from one of the D.A. ports to the pass-thru. This then allows you to get the signal on the backside of the binary for better access to camera mounted view finders or LCD panels. Mounting for the binary is made possible by a 19mm tube clamp with a female mounted V-DOCK. The Breakout binary is currently available for gold mount A/B batteries but IDX can be made available.
