Televisa's Newscenter studios, Chapultepec have selected Vinten to supply a number of camera support systems for their studio. The new order includes 9 Quartz two pedestals complete with Vector 70 pan and tilt heads.
This purchase compliments the array of Vinten products that Televisa have bought over a number of years and utilize in both their Telenovelas and News Facilities. Existing products include Vector 70 pan and tilt heads, Quattros, Osprey Elites, Quartz One and Two pedestals, with the News crews using the Vision 100 and Vision 250 systems out on location.
This recent order includes 9 Quartz two pedestals with Vector 70 pan and tilt heads.

"The selection process of this equipment was done very carefully, we involved the Engineering Dept and the Camera Crew, at the end of the day they are the ones that will be working with the equipment on a daily basis." explains Juan Carlos Salazar Benitez, Eng. - Technical Operations Co-ordinator.

"In the Televisa Chapultepec facilities, we tested many brands of pedestals and we came to the conclusion that the Vinten pedestals Quartz II with the Pan/Tilt head Vector 70 incorporate all the design characteristics that we need to install the cameras with Teleprompters in the new studios. The Quartz II and Vector 70 systems will be utilized with High Definition cameras and Teleprompters in the new facilities, which are presently under construction in Televisa Chapultepec. The systems will be used exclusively for "On-Air" production of all the News Casting in Televisa."

When discussing Televisa's long standing relationship with Vinten Juan added:" For more than 20 years Televisa has been utilizing 15 Fulmar Pedestals which have surpassed four generations of cameras and we will continue to utilize these pedestals indefinitely. With the proper maintenance, the pedestals continue working without any problems. We also use several other pedestals like Ospreys and Pro-Peds in our facilities. On the lightweight area and for the portable cameras we have depended on more than 40 Vinten tripod systems of the Vision line of products."

The new equipment does not replace any other systems and will be integrated to the new technical facilities of Televisa.
