Vinten is introducing a new pan and tilt head to support full size broadcast cameras and lenses as remote-controlled robotic devices in outdoor locations.
The FHR-155E has a maximum payload capacity of 90kg/200lb, and is insulated against extreme temperatures with an operating range of 4°C to 50°C.
With IP network connectivity, camera operators can make pan-and-tilt movements remotely via the Vinten HD-VRC control system used in studio robotics. The FHR-155E features a pan range of 359° and a tilt range of ±30° (±179° with extended cradle arm) and is designed to be near-silent when in motion, said the company.
“As the latest addition to our popular FHR range of robotic heads, the FHR-155E shares a pedigree with long line of class-leading robotic pan and tilt heads from Vinten. This solution delivers broadcast quality production values to remote locations outside of a studio with outstanding protection from the environment,” said Neil Gardner, global product manager, robotics and automation. “Whether the environmental challenge is heat, cold, dust or rain, The FHR-155E consistently delivers the smooth camera and lens motion control necessary for high-quality broadcast output.”
