Vinten, a Vitec Group brand, has introduced new camera heads at this week’s IBC 2010.
The Vector 430 is designed for the growing number of applications that use both the compact box lens and large EFP barrel lenses.
It offers a capacity range of 10 - 43 kg (22 - 94.8 lbs). According to Vinten, this means it can be used in the studio and out in the field, when two heads may have previously been required.
The head was developed in partnership with a number of Vinten customers, including UK outside broadcast specialist, Telegenic.
Also taking its bow this week is Vinten’s first encoded pantographic head, the Vector 750i. Again developed in collaboration with customers, this pan and tilt head is designed to provide maximum precision in virtual reality environments, for both outside broadcast and studio applications.
The Vector 750i incorporates a new intelligence module designed to allow semi automatic set-up, slide plate tracking and kinematic compensation to ensure stable and accurate placement of virtual graphics into the live environment.
Andrew Butler, product manager at Vinten, said: “There is a rapid growing demand for encoded heads in the live broadcasting space and we know it’s important that key players globally have the operational flexibility they need in the studio or out on the field, and to seamlessly integrate virtual reality graphics into their live productions.”
