Vinten®, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, will showcase the benefits of its recently completed Vision blue range at this years NAB2013 event, Las Vegas Convention Centre, 6-11 April. Appearing for the first time in the US is the Vision blue3, the much anticipated third and final pan and tilt head in the Vision blue family, displayed alongside the ultimate new accessory for the range, the Vision bluebridge.
The Vision blue3 was developed for todays intermediate weight 1/3 chip camcorders and highly accessorised lightweight DSLRs, and enables users to now select the perfect head to match their application across a wider range of payloads. The Vision bluebridge is an accessory that works with any of the pan and tilt heads in the Vision blue range to extend the payloads which can be perfectly balanced.
The Vision blue3 balances payloads of between 3.0 - 6.6kg (6.6 14.6lbs) and sits between the original Vision blue, (payload range 2.1 5kg/4.6 11lbs), and the recently launched Vision blue5 (payload range 5.5 12kg/12.1lb to 26.5lb). The bluebridge offers further flexibility to camera operators using any of these heads and works by shifting the payload range down, offering users a cost effective option by extending the payload capabilities of their chosen Vision blue system.
Andrew Butler, strategic planning and project manager, Vinten, says: Visitors to this years NAB2013 will be able to see the unveiling of the complete Vision blue range. Were very proud of the success of the Vision blue heads and the feedback that weve had from global operators praising their high performance support, designed to match the broadcast quality performance of todays compact, lightweight cameras.
These latest additions to the Vision blue range mean that Vinten supports deployments that span traditional broadcast cameras as well as lightweight camcorders and DSLRs equipped for video. The Vision blue3 is the final addition to the pan and tilt heads completing the full payload range, while the Vision bluebridge effectively means that operators only need one single tripod for their shoots.
The Vision blue range was designed to offer professional videographers with a solution that makes delivering extremely high level of quality and performance seem effortless. Camera operators can experience all of the broadcast standard features associated with Vintens heads, such as infinitely adjustable Perfect Balance and LF drag technology to provide uniquely smooth control and consistent movement quality, allowing users to shoot more creatively.
The Vision blue family will be shown alongside a selection of the companys renowned products on Vintens booth C6025 at NAB2013, which takes place at The Las Vegas Convention Centre, 6-11 April.
