Vinten Radamec has launched its heavy weight robotic pedestal, FPR-210+, a variation of iTs FP-188. The new pedestal supports the weight of the company’s Fusion FH-145 head, plus the combined weight of studio camera or build-up kit, studio lens and prompter/vanity monitor combination of up to 66kg/145lbs, maximising the payload capacity of the FH-145.
The FPR-210+ offers the smooth on-air operation across all speeds, Vinten Radamec claims. The pedestal recognises the compact L-shaped floor targets that work across a wide range of floor finishes or can be supplied with the Fusion Absolute Positioning System (APS). The APS aims to deliver positional accuracy and operational flexibility, difficult to achieve when using free-roaming robotic camera support pedestals.
“This is the latest in our line of next generation products that will provide studios with the highest performing heavy weight robotic solution on the market,” said Phil Dalgoutte, product manager for Vinten Radamec. “The FPR-210+ can be locally controlled through the easily accessible buttons to operate the height column and switching of the pedestal base to full-manual operation, this makes it simple to switch between free form and pre-programmed show formats providing studios with even more flexibility.”
