Robotic and Manual Pedestal

The FP-188+ Robotic and Manual Pedestal is capable of recognizing compact ‘L’ shaped floor targets that offers more precise reference positioning across a wider range of floor finishes.This floor target can also be incorporated into the floor design.

The unit’s generous payload of 85kg /188 lbs is capable of supporting an expanded camera/prompter package including the talent-facing vanity monitor often attached to the head during HD production. New differential wheel trucks maximise floor traction to enhance Vinten’s already unmatched shot stability performance.

The quality of performance in manual or robotic mode allows a studio to be used as either fully robotic or fully manual, without compromising the operator’s familiarity with Vinten’s manual pedestals or robotic user interfaces.

The fully continuous steering capability is delivered through the column found on the Quartz pedestal in the Vinten manual studio range, allowing studio pedestal operators to be instantly familiar with the operating benefits of Perfect Balance.

With all the on shot characteristics you would expect, this robotic pedestal has a maximum height velocity of 150mm (6”) per second, and a maximum floor speed of 300mm (12”) per second.

The electronic units are housed in easy access modules in the base of the pedestal, allowing board and full pack swap out.

The FP-188+ is compatible with all Vinten Control Systems and Robotic Heads.

To create a fully robotic 3D virtual reality tracking solution, the FP-188+ can have the VR upgrade. Equipped with replacement control and power boxes which establishes communication to the Fusion Head Processing Module (HPM) fitted to the FHR-145 bwith VR upgrade.
