Film Devices Rack-N-Bag Info, Photos, and Updates
The Rack-N-Bag is the next generation of the location sound bag and is available in 3 sizes. It offers vast improvements in the way film industry sound kits are made and utilized. The Rack-N-Bag allows complete access to all your equipment which are secured to a rigid carbon fiber and aluminum frame. The Rack-N-Bag can be carried by handle, strap or harness with or without the outer nylon shell. It can be used as a conventional sound bag, or as a desktop console. With the outer nylon shell removed access is available to all connections. You no longer have to try to find a loose connector at the bottom of the bag under your equipment in the middle of a shoot. The Rack -N-Bag weighs about the same as conventional bags in each size range.
The system has an optional power distribution system that features a Smart battery sled. The battery slides out from the front and can be changed with one hand. The tilt-up panel is a first in the industry. It allows front display receiver and transmitters such as the Lectrosonics LR receivers, Lectrosonics DCHT Camera Hop, Sennheiser EW G2, G3, G4 series to be mounted and viewed correctly.
- We are currently developing a Rack-N-Bag for the Aaton Cantar Mini
- We now have a Medium Rack-N-Bag configured for the Sound Devices MixPre10 and the Kork nanoKontrol and the Zoom F4N F8N using the F-Control. The same configuration will work with the Sound Devices 833 with the SL-2 and the Sonosax SX-LC8X control surface.
- We are working on hardware to mount the Betso Bowtie Antennas to the Rack-N-Bag.
Power Distro Systems for the Rack-N-Bag
We offer Audioroot power distros combined with our exclusive Smart Battery Sled. We have the Audioroot eSMART BG-DU and the eSMART BG-DH MKII available as a kit with our Smart battery sled and 5 power cables of your choice in 30, 40, 50cm. These are short cables specifically designed to keep rats nests out of your sound bag. The battery sleds may be purchsed by themselves with 4 pin Hirose or TA4F plugs. In addition we have a dual USB power port for LED lights, phone charging or accessories.
