Vinten is launching two new Vector heads at IBC 2010 in direct response to user demand. The new Vector 750i delivers unsurpassed precision for virtual and augmented reality in outside broadcast and studio applications. The new Vector 430 is a compact head with a very wide payload range, meeting the needs of production companies working with multiple camera set-ups.

Developed in collaboration with leading global customers, including SportVision in the US, the Vector 750i is the first encoded pantographic head from Vinten. It incorporates a new Intelligence Module allowing semi automatic set-up, slide plate tracking and kinematic compensation, all of which ensure stable and precise placement of virtual graphics into the live environment. This innovation coupled with the feel of the Vector 750, preferred by operators around the world, has ensured that the Vector 750i is keenly anticipated by production companies working with onscreen graphics, such as those that feature heavily in high-profile sports events like the upcoming Ryder Cup and Commonwealth Games.

The new Vector 430 pan and tilt head has a unique compact and lightweight design that makes it simple to rig, convenient to transport and equally well suited to studio and outside broadcast operations. Advanced engineering from Vinten has given the head a payload capacity of 10kg to 43kg, making it capable of precisely balancing any camera from a lightweight EFP system right up to a mini-box lens set-up. This simplifies the task on outside broadcasts, for example when specifying suitable support equipment; providing a single choice when two heads may have previously been required. The Vector 430 offers premium performance with all the features Vinten studio and OB users have come to expect, including infinitely adjustable perfect balance and TF fluid drag, rapid camera positioning and balance adjustment and ergonomically positioned controls that make using the Vector 430 second nature.

“Because of our long standing popularity in the studio and OB market, it is very common to find us working at the ‘sharp end’ talking with the cameramen about the issues they face daily and the level of functionality they really need,” said Peter Harman, Vinten product manager. “These two new Vector heads have been developed to meet real user requirements, to give them the operational flexibility they need in the studio or out on the field, and seamlessly integrate virtual reality graphics into live production.”

Find Vinten at IBC on stand 11.F60, near the Production Village.
