Vinten has supplied best-in-class pedestals to the University of Copenhagen, one of the largest institutions of research and education in the Nordic countries.

The Vinten equipment has been selected for three brand new multi-purpose studios at university’s Faculty of Humanities. Three of Vinten’s Osprey pedestals are being installed in the newly constructed studios which will be used for a range of applications by both students and employees - from TV training for the university’s scientists, to filming in house commercials and promotional videos highlighting the latest educational opportunities.

Philip Dalgoutte, product manager, Vinten said: “When it came to selecting equipment, the university wanted professional, broadcast standard products that were straight forward to operate and robust enough to perform flawlessly, despite being in constant use by a multitude of different operators. We are delighted that our Osprey Light pedestals will play such a pivotal role in the studios, providing the flexibility required to support the diverse range of applications.”

Vinten’s Osprey Light pedestals were designed for the growing number of smaller studios that require a lightweight pedestal which does not compromise the quality of on shot movement. The single stage pedestal has a 40kg/88.2lbs capacity, with crabbing base capability, and an on-shot stroke of 54 cm/ 21.2", with the addition of a sophisticated wheel braking mechanism to eliminate the flat spots on the tire that can ruin a rolling shot.  

More than 50,000 students and employees attend the University of Copenhagen and the site is home to some of country’s most modern facilities, with the latest high performing equipment from the industry’s leading brands. The university has been using Vinten pedestals for the last two decades and selected the company’s latest range due to the longevity of the products.

Lars Palmqvist, digital media specialist, University of Copenhagen said: “Our original Vinten pedestals lasted more than 30 years and have taken us through thousands of different productions. As an educational institute we have to invest in our equipment wisely, it is vital to choose camera support equipment that not only performs well, but is durable and long lasting enough to provide us with the best value.” 

“The Osprey pedestals perform exceptionally well, they allow for a very smooth operation and can be moved around the studio without any bumps. We have used them in several shoots in both the large studio and the smaller podcast studio, and they have performed consistently regardless of the application.”
