Vinten to showcase Vision blue5
Vinten, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, will showcase its Vision blue5 pan and tilt head and tripod system. According to the company, the Vision blue5 has the same functionality as the Vision blue system, but with a higher carrying capacity of 12.1lb to 26.5lb/5.5kg to 12kg at 100mm CofG. Vision blue5 can support the latest generation of larger cameras used by professional videographers.
The Vision blue5 is the latest addition to the company’s Vision range and the second addition to the blue series of lightweight pan and tilt heads and systems. The range provides today’s camera operators with a high level of broadcast quality and performance.
The entire Vinten Vision range offers a cost effective solution while delivering all of the quality and performance operators have come to expect from a Vinten Vision head. This includes Vinten’s Perfect Balance technology, providing consistent movement and easy positioning of the camera at any angle, as well as its LF drag technology that enables complete control of the camera at any level of movement.
Peter Harman, product manager, Vinten, says: “The unrivalled performance of the Vision blue5 provides operators with all the benefits of Vinten’s renowned Vision support systems at a premium value. It was designed in response to the feedback we received from our customers all around the world. The result is a new system that is effortless to use with all the broadcast quality you would expect from a market leading brand.
“Everyone in the industry knows that to appreciate the true potential of equipment like this, operators need to see and feel the product to recognize its outstanding capabilities,” he continued.
