Vinten to Launch New Vision blue5 at NAB


Vinten's new Vision blue5.
Vinten will introduce its new Vision blue5 pan and tilt head and tripod system at NAB. The new Vision blue5 has the same functionality as the Vision blue system launched at last year’s NAB, but with a higher carrying capacity of 12.1 lbs to 26.5 lbs, making it ideal for the latest generation of larger cameras used by professional videographers.

The Vision blue5 is the latest addition to the company’s Vision range and the second addition to the blue series of lightweight pan and tilt heads and systems. It features Vinten’s Perfect Balance technology, providing consistent movement and easy positioning of the camera at any angle, as well as its LF drag technology that enables complete control of the camera at any level of movement.

“Everyone in the industry knows that to appreciate the true potential of equipment like this, operators need to see and feel the product to recognize its outstanding capabilities,” said Peter Harman, Vinten product manager. “This is why we’re giving 2012 NAB visitors the opportunity to witness the uncompromised professional performance of the new Vision blue5 for themselves.”

Also being displayed at 2012 NAB Show, in booth C6029, will be several other products from Vinten’s range of camera support products. This includes Vision blue, the Vision AS range, Vision 100 and 250, the Vector range including the new Vector 430S and, a wide selection of studio and OB pedestals, tripods and accessories.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
