At the Guild of Television Cameramen Awards Dinner, held on Saturday 7th October 2000, Vinten Broadcast Limited were awarded Seals of Approval for the Vision 100 and Vision 250 pan and tilt heads.

Presenting the awards on behalf of the Guild of Television Cameramen, Tony Grant, Manufacturers' Liaison Officer, commented :

"The Vision 100 and 250 have such a great 'feel' to them, and they cover the entire range of 'lightweight' broadcast cameras. Indeed, I was so impressed with the product that I bought my own Vision 100! In the past I have been forced to use old and badly maintained equipment for shoots, during which time I had to constantly fight against an inadequately panning head, which I could not rely on to go where I wanted it to. However, my Vision 100 is so well-balanced that I have supreme confidence in its performance and I can concentrate solely on the shot development, knowing that the head will perform exactly as I execute the shot, and I won't even have to think about it."

Receiving the awards on behalf of Vinten Broadcast limited were Graham Ramsey, Customer Service Manager and Peter Harman, Training Manager. They thanked the Guild and accepted the awards in recognition of the hard work and dedicated efforts put into the products by the entire Vinten team. Graham Ramsey added:

"Our sincere thanks go out to the Guild of Television Cameramen and the many users of Vinten products. We thank the Guild and its members for the help and support they have provided us in the past and look forward to a long and beneficial relationship in the future. Vinten add these two new awards to three previous Seals of Approval, awarded to the Fulmar, Osprey and Quattro pedestals, all of which are proudly displayed on the product and in the company reception area."

The Guild of Television Cameramen was formed in 1972. There are now around 1000 members, mainly from the UK, but there are an increasing number of International Members from places as far apart as New Zealand and Switzerland.
The GTC aims to act as an authoritative source of advice and information on all matters of concern to Television Cameramen and to discuss matters of common interest. It provides a means by which manufactures can consult working cameramen when designing equipment and, as a consequence, have produced outline specifications for cameras, viewfinders, lenses etc.
