Each Vinten pan and

“The big advantage of this technology is that I could capture
perfect shots with minimal effort and have easy and
consistent movement of the camera throughout the tilting range.
I simply dialled in the amount of drag I needed, and this is
adjustable, so it enabled me to maintain precise control over
the camera.”

To help achieve the best possible filming,
Vinten’s Lubricated Friction (LF) drag
technology (resistance to movement):
• Provides simple, continuous adjustment
of drag level that suits the way you
work instead of a pre-determined level
which may not
• Helps prevent overshooting
• Dampens out unwanted movements
and makes minor adjustment virtually
impossible to detect
• Instant, controlled whip pan movement
without manual drag reduction.

Freedom rewarded
Bridging the gap
The new Vision blueBridge
accessory extends the lower
range of payloads for each
Vision blue system. Quickly and simply
attaching to the underside of the camera, it
raises the camera above the platform allowing
lower weight cameras to be used that would
otherwise be too light for the counterbalance
system to balance perfectly.
In tune with you
By teaming the Vision blue heads with
the Pozi-Loc tripod and Vinten carry case,
you’ll have the perfect support for your
business. The Pozi-Loc’s design excellence
is felt throughout, starting with the excellent
torsional rigidity which minimises spring
back. It will perform, whatever the conditions.
For more information about the Pozi-Loc,
see page 19.

The TF drag system (see page 27) offers
infinite adjustment and because it works
independently of the balance system, allows
precision balancing of the pan and tilt axis
so that the effort needed to follow the action
becomes totally insignificant.
The Vision 250 also includes illuminated drag
controls and a digital counterbalance readout,
ensuring simple and repeatable camera
set-up in any lighting situation.

With a choice of easily changeable spherical
or flat bases, the Vision 250 can be mounted
on any pedestal or tripod, making the Vision
250 head one of the most versatile products
in the range.

Pozi-Loc Tripods
The Vinten Difference
Pozi-Loc Tripods
Picture quality relies as
much upon the rigidity of the
camera support as it does
on the smoothness of the pan
and tilt head and accuracy of
the counterbalance.
Above: Ideal for harsh environments
Vinten offer a range of Pozi-Loc tripods (pages
19 to 21) that are designed to achieve optimum
picture quality for those shooting with
lightweight camera configurations, as well as
Heavy Duty tripods (pages 22 to 23) that make
the perfect shot possible with heavier camera
configurations up to 140kg / 308.6lbs.
All Vinten tripods are precisely manufactured
using the highest quality materials and are
designed to optimise torsional rigidity without
compromising operational essentials such as
lightweight, reliability, easy, maintenance and
speed of set-up.
Above: Engineered for reliability
Torsional rigidity
minimises ‘spring back’
Minimal clearances in the
joints avoid unnecessary
free movement when
changing pan direction
Positive action leg

TF Drag Technology
Vinten’s Thin Film (TF) Drag Technology
• Continuous, infinite drag adjustment
control allows you work without compromise
delivering smooth movement in any situation
• An extensive range of drag from
exceptionally light to exceptionally heavy
allowing the camera to work in tune with you
• A wide operating temperature range
from -40°C to +60°C means you can use
the pan and tilt heads in a wide range
of environments with uncompromising
performance guaranteed
of the plates is equal to the fluid drag at this
speed but does not increase as motion speed
increases. This results in a smooth transition
to almost constant drag force regardless of
velocity (above the threshold) and the perfect
whip pan.
Fig 1.1
moving plate
Height
TF drags are constructed of multiple
rotating plates alternating with static plates
surrounded in the fluid which is vacuum filled
to eliminate all air from the drag. The plates
do not contact each other but are separated
only by a thin film of the special fluid. When the
head is moved the rotating plates move relative
to the static plates creating a velocity profile
shearing the fluid leading to drag (fig 1.0).
u = umax

Vinten patented TF drag
system is designed to offer
complete control at any level

to concentrate on achieving
the best possible filming. The
high levels of control allow you

delivering smooth movement
is any situation.
TF drag
Vinten’s TF (thin film drag) is a true fluid
drag in the purest terms. Utilising the unique
properties of a proprietary fluid TF drag
provides smooth predictable resistance over
a wide variety of levels and temperatures.
u =0
Force
Velocity
As soon as the motion speed is reduced below
the level required for the plates to be deflected
the fluid returns to the void between the plates
and normal fluid drag is restored.
Height
• Outstanding whip pan control
drag force = area * viscosity *
( )
velocity
height
Drag level is infinitely adjustable by varying
the area of overlap between the static and
rotating plates.
At low to moderate speeds the fluid is in
laminar flow and the separation of the plates
(h) is constant yielding an evenly increasing
level of drag with fluid velocity (u). As the pan
(or tilt) motion speed crosses into the “whip
pan” region the flow of fluid between the static
and moving plates becomes sufficiently fast
for the Bernoulli Effect to reduce the fluid
pressure between the plates drawing them
together the coefficient of lubricated friction

features which address the pressures of
today’s fast paced and cost conscious
production company. This includes smooth
operation in both pan and tilt movements
with infinite adjustability for both the Perfect

provides ±60˚ of perfectly

safe control of today’s long
OB lenses and large 3D rigs.
The compact and durable Vector 950 head
incorporates a wealth of features. Set-up is
aided through the inclusion of a tilt deadlock,
Quickfix groove in the base, retractable carry
handle and illuminated controls, as well as
an LCD display that offers a counterbalance
readout that can be set for known payloads.
The pan and tilt brakes are positioned at
the rear of the head, making them easily
accessible, and the camera plate can be
simply adjusted forward and back using a
retractable, ergonomically designed adjuster.
The Vector 950 features TF Drag, allowing
outstanding whip pan control and an
extensive operational temperature range
from -40˚C through to +60˚C. The high
output tilt drag modules also provide superb
holding force and enhanced control in windy
conditions. Combining these characteristics
with infinite Perfect Balance adjustment
ensures that the effort needed to control
the effect of a heavy, moving camera
payload remains constant and predictable,
eliminating a major distraction during filming.

Studio/OB Pedestals
The Vinten range of
pedestals suit a wide variety
of applications and budgets,
and will provide superior
camera control and
freedom of movement in
any situation.
Above: Precise tracking
“I’ve always found that my
operators prefer Vinten
because of the precise
tracking of the pedestal in
the four-camera environment.
It’s more than the durability
and lack of down time. Often,
the outside guys have to turn,
pull, lift, pan and tilt in
moments because they have
to get back to position quickly.
The fluidness and ease to
reset is very important and
that’s one of the things that
Vinten has always excelled
in over the years.”
Donald A. Morgan, ASC
Vision pedestals pay attention to every detail.
The ergonomic designs are quiet and strong,
providing optimum support whilst keeping
noise levels to a minimum.
All of the pedestals feature a perfectly
balanced pedestal column that enables
precise camera elevation: allowing the
operator to avoid the effort and extra
concentration needed to control an
unbalanced camera and pay full attention
to shot framing.
Above: Intuitive to use
Perfect Balance
provides effortless
fingertip control
and reduces
operator fatigue.

Vector 750i is the first encoded
pantographic head from
Vinten, providing the perfect
solution for virtual reality in
both studio and outside
broadcast for operators who
love the feel of the Vector 750.
The pan and tilt head incorporates a new
Intelligence Module allowing semi automatic
set-up, slide plate tracking and kinematic
compensation. When the Vector 750i is
combined with the VRI box [see page 45]
these features provide the most precise
positioning data possible from a
pantographic head, to ensure stable and
accurate placement of virtual graphics
into the live environment.
The Vector 750i maintains all of the market
leading functionality of the Vector 750
[see page 30], making this pan and tilt
head an ideal choice for large camera
combinations where virtual reality is
required – now or in the future.

offers a direct interface to
lenses with encoder outputs,
(or bolt on lens encoders)
to provide a single data
stream to the graphics
rendering system. Each VRI
box is supplied with
mounting brackets, GUI,
and head interface cable.
The Virtual Reality

Quickfix®
The time taken for set-up and
breakdown is wasteful, which is
why Vinten have developed their range
of Quickfix adaptors. Constructed
entirely from corrosion resistant
components, Quickfix adaptors are
ideal for OB applications.

1. A simple lever operation secures and releases
the pan and tilt head in seconds, leaving more
time to capture the action.
2. The Quickfix profile is incorporated into the
base of current pan and tilt heads. (Screw on ring
adaptor available for older heads).
3. The locking system will not release the
head until the safety catch is opened.
