The Vinten pan and tilt heads will work smoothly and reliably even in the freezing termperatures



NEP Supershooters, which is providing eight mobile television trailers for coverage of the Vancouver Winter Games, is mounting its OB and portable cameras exclusively on Vinten pan and tilt heads.

NEP Broadcasting Chief Technology Officer George Hoover says the reason for using all Vinten pan and tilt heads is simple. “All outdoor Winter Games sites are pretty extreme, where we’re outside for days on end in freezing temperatures. We have Vinten heads out there for weeks on the side of mountains for the Alpine events, and in stadiums for Figure Skating and Speed Skating. They just work smoothly and reliably wherever we put them.”

In fact, the company owns over 400 Vinten heads equipping the over 60 mobile units it owns worldwide. It’s the only head NEP uses, Hoover says, “because the cameramen simply won’t work with anything else.”

In Vancouver, NEP is providing Vinten Vector heads and heavy-duty tripods to support full-sized video production cameras with hefty long lenses. For smaller cameras used for quick deployment assignments like post competition interviews, NEP is providing Vinten Vision heads across the range.
