Vinten Radamec Introduces Next Generation Robotic Head
The FH-200 provides a robotics solution for the larger studio cameras or build-up kits with box lenses, talent monitors and large viewfinders. The new head incorporates all of the functionality of the FH-145 that broadcasters value, with additional features to make it suitable for the heavier payloads that are common in numerous studios across the globe.
Karen Walker, robotics commercial manager for Vinten Radamec said: “We are delighted with the success of the FH-145 which has become the robotic head of choice for many studios around the world. The FH-200 was designed as a direct result of customer feedback, who indicated they wanted the same high quality robotic performance for their heavier studio set ups.
“We have kept the familiarity of the FH-145, taking its outstanding on-air movement quality and accurate shot replay, and transferred them into this new fluid head that can handle even larger camera and lens packages.”
Additional features of the FH-200 include a new mounting cradle that is now large enough to suit the wider studio cameras. Like the FH-145, the FH-200 can also be used in both manual and robotic modes.
Walker continued: “We have created a different pan bar mounting arrangement on the FH-200 as the big box lenses require larger pan bar mounted zoom and focus demands. This new head includes pan bars from the renowned Vinten Vector range of manual heads. The updated motion control parameters of the head ensure smoother movement and more accurate recall of shots even with those much heavier payloads.”
