About Vinten

Vinten

100 years in the making

For 100 years Vinten has continually strived to advance the possibilities of broadcasting by harnessing the inventive spirit of its founder, William Vinten .

Pioneering

Vinten

®

, established in 1910 as ‘W Vinten

Cinematograph Engineers’, is one of the oldest camera support brands in the world. Throughout the 20th century Vinten has continually strived to advance the possibilities of broadcasting by harnessing the inventive spirit of its founder, William

Vinten. Respected organisations including the Royal Flying Corps, Kodak and the

British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) have relied on Vinten to provide unique, pioneering technology. 100 years on Vinten continues to build on this legacy, creating some of the most trusted support systems in the industry through manufacturing excellence and innovation.

Iconic

Ever since Vinten’s early collaborations with world famous broadcasters in the

1940s, Vinten’s equipment has been an industry standard. Every year thousands of iconic television productions are filmed using cameras supported by Vinten pan and tilt heads, pedestals and tripods.

Many studios use Vinten camera support and Vinten is also a brand of choice for the biggest outside broadcasts. Vinten is the professional’s choice because thanks to our unique ‘Perfect Balance’ technology the support it provides is effortless allowing the operator to focus on the perfect shot for longer.

Innovative

Vinten’s 100-year success story is a direct result of innovation. Vinten is dedicated to working with camera operators to develop state-of-the-art technology that enables the capture of outstanding footage. This dedication has resulted in the development of numerous milestone products reflecting the industry’s changing needs, including the first pan and tilt heads and pedestals designed for TV. From groundbreaking developments such as

Perfect Balance technology, to ideas such as the illuminated levelling bubble,

Vinten continues to lead the market with its world-first innovations.

Experienced

The real benefit of Vinten’s history is the experience that it brings. 100 years of engineering has enabled the development and manufacturing teams to perfect designs, processes and performance.

The culmination of this experience is the broad range of high quality camera support products that can be found in this brochure. All Vinten products are manufactured to ISO 9001:2000 standards, and Vinten users around the world know that Vinten products come with high quality, reliability and durability as standard.

Commitment

Crucially Vinten’s investment in quality, innovative products is backed by a strong commitment to Vinten customers.

The Vinten team work hard to achieve the highest level of service – all over the world. Vinten provides a truly global reach with extensive sales and service teams that span the world, so there is always someone available to help. This commitment to service is clearly shown by the strong relationships that Vinten has with many camera operators: valuable relationships that enable their needs to be translated into pioneering advances in camera support technology.

Why is balance important?

Imagine the scenario: a person holds a weight at shoulder height with their arm bent and close to their body; the further they extend their arm from their elbow, the harder it becomes to support the weight.

Key:

1. out of balance zone

2. camera requirement & Vinten Perfect Balance

3. competitor 1 linear counterbalance

4. competitor 2 continuously variable approximate balance

Fig.1

80 90

Why?

The weight does not become heavier but the amount of effort (torque) required to support the weight increases as the weight is moved further from the elbow (pivot point).

This explanation is also true for a camera that is tilted. The further it is tilted from the horizontal, the more torque is required to prevent the camera falling.

Why is Perfect Balance the best solution?

Most manufacturers offer counterbalance systems that cannot produce the exact amount of torque required. Figure 1 shows that the amount of torque required as a result of tilting the camera has a precise but non-linear pattern. This means that the out of balance effect is most prominent on heads manufactured with linear counterbalance systems.

This torque is produced by the pan and tilt head’s counterbalance system. If it does not match the camera weight and angle exactly the camera will either fall away or return to centre.

Even where a manufacturer has included continuously variable counterbalance, if it is only approximate the camera will not be completely controlled throughout the tilt range of the head (see Fig.2).

Fig.2

The Vinten Perfect Balance system is easy to set and offers infinite adjustment, providing precisely the right amount of torque necessary to counterbalance the camera throughout the head’s tilt range.

Minimal effort is required to move the camera; the camera operator can even go hands-free. Vinten’s infinite adjustment allows exactly the right amount of torque to be generated at whatever angle the camera is positioned. Compensating for the effect of gravity, Vinten’s Perfect

Balance makes the camera appear weightless in the hands of the camera operator. And, as it balances perfectly the drag control can be used for what it is intended to do: shot framing and control, rather than helping to balance the camera.

Perfect Balance

Perfectly Balanced Pedestals

This means:

>

Consistent movement and easy positioning of the camera at any angle

>

Perfect shots captured with minimal effort

>

Physical strain eliminated; easy to work longer

How to achieve 180˚ Perfect Balance in 4 simple steps:

Perfect Balance is an equally important part of

Vinten pedestals.

Why is balance important?

In this context balance literally means the support offered by the pedestal to the camera/lens configuration. Without balance the camera would fall to the pedestal’s lowest point or rise to the pedestal’s highest point making it impossible to film.

1. Slide the camera onto the head using the Vinten slide plate and position it so that the camera’s centre of gravity sits over the centre of the head.

2. Reduce the tilt friction to its minimum.

3. Tilt the camera both forward and back; if the camera is correctly positioned it will either fall away from, or return to the horizontal at an even rate either side of the head’s top dead centre.

Why is Perfect Balance the best solution?

Non-perfect balance systems require variable effort throughout the stroke of the column and are therefore harder to use; the camera will have a tendency to fall or rise at certain points, which, depending on its severity, can make smooth movement and steady framing virtually impossible.

4. If the camera falls away from the centre position, turn the Perfect Balance knob clockwise. If the camera springs back towards the centre, turn the Perfect

Balance knob anticlockwise.

Perfect Balance ensures that the pedestal column system consistently offers the exact support required for the camera operator to raise and lower the camera with minimal effort.

Perfect Balance is achieved when the camera remains stationary in any tilted position.

The Vision Ped Plus, Pro-Ped, Osprey,

Quartz and Quattro ranges utilise precisely engineered and patented balance systems, providing smooth and controllable camera balance. Vinten’s

Perfect Balance technology ensures that the pedestals can be moved effortlessly and once positioned will stay put - whatever the weight of the camera configuration.

This means:

>

Smooth, low effort elevation movement

>

No distraction from filming caused by unwanted vertical movement

>

Physical strain eliminated; easy to work longer

Vinten’s unique infinitely adjustable

Perfect Balance makes the camera appear weightless in the hands of the camera operator.

08

Drag Technology

Vinten drag systems are designed to offer complete control at any level of movement

Drag Technology

Why is drag important?

In order to control the camera, resistance to movement

(drag) is needed to prevent overshooting, dampen out unwanted movements and to make minor adjustment virtually impossible to detect.

If the action changes out of shot Vinten’s patented drag systems allow instant whip pan movement without any manual reduction of the drag. This is ideal for applications such as sports coverage which require lower drag for following the close action and higher drag for longer shots.

Vinten pan and tilt heads also offer infinite, rather than stepped adjustment.

This enables the camera operator to select the drag level that suits their working requirements, rather than a pre-determined level which may not.

Why is Vinten drag technology the best solution?

Whilst drag is essential, it can have a negative effect if the system is poorly designed. All too often (see Fig.1) drag systems are designed so that resistance to movement increases proportionally with the speed of pan or tilt. Where this is the case, whip pan becomes impossible and minute framing adjustments difficult to achieve.

This means:

>

Simple, infinite adjustment without steps

>

Instant whip pan without manual drag reduction

>

Fast and repeatable set-up

>

Illuminated drag controls

[from Vision 100 upwards]

Vinten drag systems are designed to offer complete camera control at any level of movement. Figure 1 shows how Vinten drag systems provide a steep increase in friction at the start of any movement.

This ensures that maximum control is gained quickly: essential for slow moves and fine framing adjustments. As the movement speed increases a shallower friction curve is created, enabling the pan and tilt head to remain light and easy to move whilst the shot continues to be controlled.

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.

The TF drag system 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.

Tripods, Spreaders and Skids/Dollies

All Vinten tripods are precisely manufactured using the highest quality materials.

“I used a Vision 3AS system while making a documentary out in the South Pacific, working mostly in the countries of Tuvalu and New Zealand. The Vinten tripod was absolutely fantastic.

It made my life so much easier to have a top-quality tripod out there, particularly in the tiny and remote island country of Tuvalu, where the shooting conditions were very challenging. When you’re already worrying about salt water, dust, rust, and convincing shy and retiring

Polynesians to give you their frank views about climate change, you really don’t want to have to worry about spending hours to level a shot or fussing around with your tripod.”

Elizabeth Pollock “Atlantis Approaching”

Tripods, Spreaders and Skids/Dollies

The Importance of Vinten Design

Pozi-Loc Tripods

Minimal clearances in the joints avoid unnecessary free movement when changing pan direction

Torsional rigidity minimises ‘spring back’

Positive action leg clamps provide clear indication of when tripod is locked

Leg catch provides safe and convenient transport and storage

Lightweight and robust aluminium or carbon fibre leg tubes

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.

The single piece, fixed length design of the spreader offers exceptional strength and robustness, and is simple to use and remove when necessary.

The pinned and glued telescopic leg design provides a wide range of height adjustment whilst offering superior strength and reliability. Set-up has been made even simpler with the addition of engraved leg markings and an integral level bubble for rapid, even deployment.

In addition the clamping system provides progressive feel to a positive stop which indicates when the leg is locked, ensuring simple and confident clamping.

How it works...

1

1. One of the Spread-Loc arms incorporates a dislocation feature, ensuring that the spreader will survive excess force and eliminating accidental damage.

2

2. Controlled by a central lock knob, the Spread-Loc arms are geared to move together. A single turn controls all three legs for fast repositioning.

In addition a unique ratchet mechanism provides an audible warning that the spreader is locked, but still allows the system to be closed for rapid repositioning.

3

3. Individually extendable arms mean that Spread-Loc achieves maximum stability in the most unusual or restricted spaces.

The design retains that familiar Vector feel, without compromising any aspect of camera control.

The Vector 75 features a centre of gravity range of 8 to 25cm / 3.1 to 9.8” and a maximum payload capacity of

75kg / 165.3lbs ensuring a wide range of camera and accessory combinations can be accommodated.

Like the Vector 750, the Vector 75 employs a unique counterbalance mechanism that does not use springs or cams. Instead a system of mechanical linkages balances cameras with various centre of gravity points, making adjustment simple and eliminating the need for time-consuming cam changes when altering the camera configuration.

Incorporated in the Vector 75 is a range of 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 Balance and LF drag system. This ensures high levels of control and exceptionally smooth movement in any situation.

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.

Studio/OB Pedestals

Perfect Balance provides fingertip control and reduces operator fatigue.

Studio/OB Pedestals

45

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.

“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.”

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.
