Powerful support for superior productions

Vinten’s heavy payload robotic heads are designed to ensure that larger camera/lens/prompter packages don’t limit your production values.

The FH-155 head combines sophisticated software and mechanical engineering to deliver exceptionally accurate and smooth movement. Operators can have total confidence in the head’s capabilities as the system will deliver remarkable control and repeatability at all speeds.

The 155 heads have a lighter weight construction, and a 3 port Ethernet switch built-in to simplify integration with robotic pedestals and IP prompting equipment. Designed to be near silent when moving, the heads are ideal for environments with ultra-critical noise limits.

For studios requiring full flexibility, the FH-155 includes a manual mode of operation with continuously adjustable servo controlled drag offering smooth, intuitive pan and tilt movement. The drag system is powerful enough to manage even the heaviest payloads and switching between robotic and manual mode can be done either at the head or controller.

Virtual/Augmented Reality options including integrated StarTracker

A VR variant of the FH-155 head delivers data in 22 bit accuracy to ensure precise rendering by the Virtual Reality engine. Where floor movement is required an optional StarTracker optical camera tracking system can also be built into the head to create a sleek, integrated system. This will track both manual and FP-188/210 pedestals anywhere in the studio, providing an absolute reference that is drift-free and removes the need for homing operations after the initial calibration.

Create a production that will engage your audience for longer with high quality output supported by Vinten.
