Vinten Vision blue Pan and Tilt Head wins two prestigious awards at NAB 2011

GTC Sponsors Vinten is proud to announce that its Vision blue pan and tilt head and tripod system has won a pair of coveted awards at NAB 2011 in Las Vegas. Vision Blue won both a TV Technology magazine STAR award (Superior Technology Award Recipient) and a DV Magazine Black Diamond award (Best of Show).

The Vision blue represents a breakthrough in pan and tilt head and tripod systems by providing the renowned 'Vinten operator feel' for the lightest weight camera packages, including bare-bones DSLRs and small camcorders. Camera packages weighing as little a one pound can be properly counterbalanced on the Vision blue, allowing fingertip control, the ability to stop a tilt at any angle, and no backlash.

"Our teams searched the NAB show floor for products that were truly deserving of recognition," says NewBay Media Broadcast & Video Group Vice President & Group Publisher Eric Trabb. (NewBay is TV Technology’s and DV’s owner.) "Recognition with an award at NAB from the Broadcast & Video Group is a strong vote of confidence and admiration from this leading industry publication."

We could not be more pleased with Vision blue’s reception from our customers,” said Peter Harman, Vinten product manager. “Professional camera operators told us they wanted smooth, predictable and controllable movement in a minimal payload head they can rely on. Their reaction to the Vision blue, along with the affirmation of the award judges, tells us that we’ve hit the mark.”

The new, competitively priced pan and tilt head and tripod system incorporates Vinten’s innovative and award-winning Perfect Balance technology, and has become an integral part of Vinten’s existing Vision range. Perfect Balance enables consistent movement and easy positioning of the camera at any angle, helping operators to achieve perfect shots with minimal effort. The head also features infinitely adjustable Vision LF drag technology for silky smooth movement and precise framing. This functionality has never before been available for such light cameras, and will bring a new consistency of movement to every user.

The Vision blue is sold as a pan and tilt head, or as complete system with a two-stage aluminum tripod and a choice of floor or mid-level spreader. It also includes a high contrast blue LED illuminated levelling bubble for quick and accurate set-up in all lighting situations.
