Vinten is delighted to announce that it has received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category.

The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the UK’s most prestigious awards for business performance. The innovation Award in particular recognises those organisations demonstrating substantial and sustained improvement in business performance and commercial success as a result of outstanding innovation in products or services.

Vinten has been recognised for its continuous innovation and development with its Perfect Balance technology – a unique and innovative engineering solution for professional television camera support.

“This outstanding recognition is a fitting tribute to the continuing success of the Vinten brand and its employees as it celebrates its 100th anniversary, an unprecedented achievement in its own right in the film and television industry” said Roger Wilson, Managing Director.

Since its foundation in 1910, Vinten has been a world-leading developer and manufacturer of camera supports including pan and tilt heads, tripods and pedestals. The introduction of Perfect Balance in the 1980s, which is unique to Vinten heads and pedestals, allowed the brand to branch out into a new sector which it had not previously served: the large and rapidly growing electronic news gathering (ENG) market, which favoured lightweight mountings. As a result of deploying Perfect Balance, Vinten was able to secure a leading position in this market globally, while at the same time doubling its sales.

Vinten is now renowned for Perfect Balance, the unrivalled ability to support a camera so that it appears weightless to the user. This, combined with fluid drag, ensures that the only moves the camera makes are those that the operator wants, with the camera remaining perfectly still – in any position – at the end of the move.

“Our dedicated employees work side by side with our customers to develop innovative new features and research work continues to develop future products encompassing the same goals with even more sophisticated technologies to deliver tangible benefits to our customers” concluded Wilson.
