Vinten Announces Launch of Vision blue3

Valley Cottage, New York, February 19, 2013 — Vinten®, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, announces the much anticipated third pan and tilt head of its renowned Vision blue range. The Vision blue3, developed for today’s intermediate weight 1/3” chip camcorders and highly accessorized lightweight DSLRs, means users can now select the perfect head to match their application across a wider range of payloads.

The new Vision blue3 balances payloads of between 6.6 – 14.6 lbs (3.0 – 6.6kg) and sits between the original Vision blue, (payload range 4.6 – 11 lbs /2.1 – 5kg), and the recently launched Vision blue5 (payload range 12.1 lb-26.5 lb/5.5 – 12kg). The latest addition to the Vision blue range means that Vinten supports deployments that span traditional broadcast cameras, as well as lightweight camcorders and DSLRs equipped for video.

The Vision blue range has been designed to offer professional videographers with a solution that delivers an extremely high level of quality and performance. Camera operators can experience all of the innovative features associated with Vinten’s heads, such as infinitely adjustable Perfect Balance and LF drag technology to provide uniquely smooth control and consistent movement quality, allowing users to shoot more creatively.

Andrew Butler, strategic planning and project manager at Vinten says, “We’re very proud of the feedback that we’ve had from global operators who choose Vision blue heads for their high performance support, designed to match the broadcast quality performance of today’s compact, lightweight cameras.

“The Vision blue range has been designed to make the filming process effortless, enabling the camera operator to release his or her creativity. The new Vision blue3 completes the range and brings uncompromised professional performance to the broadest range of users, regardless of the payload of the camcorder and its accessories.”

The original Vision blue made its first appearance to the industry more than two years ago at IBC 2010, filling the gap in the market for a broadcast quality pan and tilt head and tripod system that could genuinely balance the smaller camcorders, without compromising on creativity. Since its launch, the Vision blue has enjoyed soaring sales and positive reviews from customers around the world.

The Vision blue3 will be shown publicly for the first time in the Americas at Vinten’s booth C6025 at NAB 2013, which takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 6-11.
