Vinten, a world leader in manual and robotic camera support systems, today introduced its all-new FH-155 — a robotic/manual pan and tilt head designed to support heavy payloads in modern broadcast studio settings. With a maximum payload capacity of 70kg/155lb, the FH-155 combines sophisticated software and mechanical engineering to enable exceptionally accurate, smooth, and quiet movements. In addition, the FH-155 is the industry’s first pan and tilt head with an option for a fully integrated StarTracker module, offering an attractive absolute-reference tracking system for floor-roaming pedestal combinations.

“As the next generation of our popular FH-145, the FH-155 head comes from a long line of class-leading robotic pan and tilt heads from Vinten. It’s the newest member of our camera support range designed to give broadcasters the flexibility to develop fresh, engaging content,” said Neil Gardner, global product manager, robotics and automation. “The FH-155 delivers remarkable control and accuracy at any speed, with optional variants offering precise data to support advanced studio graphics and ensure productions can create a unique visual identity” 

Available for both the FH-155 and its companion, the robotic-only FHR-155, the optional StarTracker module is an absolute-reference system that enables drift-free, real-time tracking for roaming pedestals in both robotic and manual modes. StarTracker is a major improvement on many tracking systems that need recalibrating regularly to maintain accuracy. Broadcasters can even calibrate multiple studios and move equipment between them as needed without additional calibration — saving time and improving efficiency in busy multifunctional facilities.

For studios requiring full flexibility, the FH-155 features a manual operating mode that enables camera operators to make intuitive and smooth pan-and-tilt movements when required by the content or production. The manual mode features a continuously adjustable, servo-controlled drag that is powerful enough to handle even the heaviest payloads. Operators can switch between robotic and manual modes either at the head or from the Vinten HD-VRC control system.

Both the FH-155 and the FHR-155 are designed to be near-silent when in motion — making them ideal for environments with ultra-critical noise limitations. 

The FH-155 and FHR-155 will be available from May. The heads will be shown alongside Vinten’s full line of creative robotic solutions at the 2019 NAB Show in the Vitec Group booth, C5725.
