London, UK (July 20, 2016) - Vinten, a world leader in robotic camera support systems and a Vitec Videocom brand, is pleased to announce updates to the bestselling Fusion Tripod Fluid Head. The Fusion FH-145, the latest in Vinten Automation’s next generation of heads, has been updated to offer nearly twice the available drag at maximum than the original model.
“The FH-145 is our flagship robotic head, and is widely recognized as the class-leading performance for studio automation,” said Product Manager Neil Gardner.
“This is an incredibly flexible system that can be used as a fully robotic pan-and-tilt head controlled remotely, or can be instantly switched to manual control when a cameraman is preferred during the production. With the increased choice of drag in manual mode, the FH-145 S2 provides the cameraman with finer control over the ‘feel’ of the head’s movement which offers the user all the more flexibility for shot control and creativity.”
The exceptional performance of the FH-145 S2 head stays true to the Vinten Robotics brand providing operators with the highest quality broadcast output in addition to three distinct steps. Step One offers the identical drag levels offered by the original FH-145 while Steps Two and Three offer additional drag levels.
Designed to support typical camera and lens packages up to 66 kg/145 lbs, the FH-145 S2 provides broadcasters with the ultimate flexible yet simple solution. Easy to set up, operate and service, every element of the versatile head has been engineered with the user in mind.
