Heavy payload for new Vinten Rademec ped
Vitec Group company Vinten Radamec has introduced a solution in response to customer demand for a robotic pedestal for even heavier payloads. The FPR-210+ is a variation of the FP-188 robotic pedestal, smoothly managing payloads of up to 95kg/210lbs which provides operators with uncompromising on-air support for heavy weight camera packages.
The new pedestal supports the weight of Vinten Radamec’s Fusion FH-145 head, plus the combined weight of the studio camera or build-up kit, studio lens and prompter/vanity monitor combination of up to 66kg/145lbs, maximising the payload capacity of the FH-145.
The FPR-210+ recognises the compact L shaped floor targets that work across a wide range of floor finishes or can be supplied with the Fusion Absolute Positioning System (APS). The APS delivers positional accuracy and operational flexibility not previously possible when using free-roaming robotic camera support pedestals.
Phil Dalgoutte, product manager for Vinten Radamec said: “The FPR-210+ can be locally controlled through the easily accessible buttons to operate the height column and switching the pedestal base to full-manual operation, this makes it simple to switch between free form and pre-programmed show formats providing studios with even more flexibility.”
