Vinten Brings High Performance to the Smallest Professional Camcorders with the New Vision Blue
Posted Jul 19, 2010

Vinten®, a Vitec Group brand and global leader in camera supports, is launching the Vision Blue at IBC2010. This competitively priced product has been specifically designed to bring uncompromised professional performance to the lightest of camcorders and DSLRs equipped for video.

Today, broadcast quality performance can be realized from small lightweight cameras, but to get the best from the camera and encourage creative freedom they need to be matched with an equally high performance support. Vision Blue is designed to deliver all the quality and performance users have come to expect from a Vinten Vision head, incorporating infinitely adjustable, genuine Perfect Balance and LF drag technology—functionality previously only available with the Vision 3AS and above.

"At Vinten we recognize that all professional camera operators want the same things: smooth, perfectly balanced movement, fast set-up and security against unwanted movement; and a reliable product that will provide long service," said Peter Harman, Vinten product manager. "That is true for all our customers, but up until now there has been a gap in the market for a broadcast quality tripod system that can genuinely balance the smaller, lightly accessorised camcorders that are so common today, without any compromise on creativity.

"We were asked for an innovative product to fill this gap, and with the Vision Blue we are not only delivering a genuine Vision product, but believe it will exceed our customers' expectations," concludes Harman.
