Quality height control for on-air creativity and efficiency
The Vinten FE-55 Elevation Unit offers high performance on-air height control for maximum flexibility in small production studios.
The elevation unit leverages the column construction of the hugely popular FP-188 robotic pedestal paired with a brand new drive and transmission design. Every shot is captured with a high level of accuracy and the ultra-smooth slow movement ensures precise shot trimming.
Utilising Vinten’s ICE control architecture, the FE-55 benefits from superior start/stop motion control, allowing smooth on-air shot trimming. The 2-stage column design offers an extended operating range for added shot creativity. In addition, the FE-55 can be upgraded for virtual reality functionality, to deliver additional versatility to the studio.
The compact elevation unit will pack into a flight case for transportation if needed and is able to be moved through standard doorways and over door thresholds with ease. To save space on the studio floor, mounting adapters are available to support large talent monitors that would usually require a separate stand. A cable management net is supplied with the unit, which will fit between the legs to suspend the cables above the studio floor. The elevation unit also features an integrated power supply which allows direct mains power connection and eliminates the need for a separate power supply unit.
The FE-55 has been designed to support smaller camera packages up to 25 kg (55 lbs). It offers broadcast quality performance, height range, and speed, at a competitive price.
