SIS LIVE boosts broadcasts with Vinten

UK outside broadcaster SIS LIVE has selected 20 of Vinten’s Vector 750 pan and tilt heads and HDT-2 two stage heavy-duty tripods to strengthen its broadcast solutions offering. SIS LIVE, formerly BBC Outside Broadcasts, already owns and uses a broad range of Vinten lightweight tripods and pan and tilt heads as well as Osprey pedestals. The Vinten Vector 750 head features a centre of gravity range of 8 to 25cm (3.1 to 9.8 inches). Complete camera control is achieved by dialing in just the right amount of perfect balance to keep the camera system under control and any level of TF drag to keep up with the action at any level of zoom. The HDT-2 two-stage tripod provides a substantially stable platform from which to work. Martin Ayshford, operations manager, SIS LIVE, Outside Broadcasts, said: “We chose the Vector 750 because of its high quality build and ease of operation. It is the industry’s standard panning head and the majority of cameramen we work with are very familiar with Vinten.”
