Class-leading on-air height control for maximum flexibility
The Vinten FE-165 Elevation Unit offers class-leading on-air height control for maximum flexibility in large fully automated, and 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-165 benefits from superior start/stop motion control, allowing smooth on-air shot trimming. Its extensive height range and exceptional speed enable rapid high to low transitions that deliver a level of creativity previously only achievable through the use of small-arm jibs. In addition, the FE-165 can be upgraded for virtual reality functionality, to deliver extra versatility to the studio.
The FE-165 comes with robotic and local control functionality. When local control is required, the elevation unit is operated using a pan bar mounted height controller which is available as an optional accessory. Combined with an FH-145 S2 manual and robotic head, this allows a camera operator to raise and lower the column whilst manually controlling the head.
Designed to ensure maximum studio flexibility, the FE-165 works on standard IP networks and features an integrated power supply which allows direct mains power connection.. 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. In addition, a cable management net is supplied with the unit, which will fit between the legs to suspend the cables above the studio floor.
The FE-165 supports large camera packages up to 75 kg (165 lbs), offering a full broadcast solution for a competitive price.
