Anton Wilson and George Bauer, the founders of Anton/Bauer
Always seen behind the scene.
For 50 years, Anton/Bauer has been the power behind the picture for anyone using a camera to shoot moving images. From breaking the news around the world, capturing sports action on the track or field, documenting remote, wild and extreme environments or shooting blockbuster movies in Hollywood Anton/Bauer batteries are a constant reliable fixture on set.
Built for camera operators by camera operators.
In 1970 Anton Wilson, a cameraman for U.S broadcast television network ABC, formed a partnership with his Cornell University roommate, George Bauer, an accomplished electrical engineer. Their mission: to build a better battery. Using Anton's real-world experience and his intimate knowledge of the challenges and frustrations encountered by camera crews every day, Bauer was able to engineer powerful solutions that pioneered the industry's first smart chargers and digital batteries.
First of many.
Putting the needs of camera operators first, Anton/Bauer developed a series of industry firsts including the revolutionary Gold Mount, the first flexible battery mounting system. Until then camera operators were forced to wear their batteries on belts around their waist or over the shoulder. The Gold Mount features a unique mounting and bracket combination that can simply snap onto the back of a camera providing not only exceptional performance and the most secure connection for power and communication but also the added benefit of improving the camera’s balance by offsetting the weight of the lens. The world’s leading camera manufacturers quickly adopted this system and Anton/Bauer was on its way to global success.
