Vinten, Canon Collaborate on DigiSuper HD
Vinten’s Vector 950 Active pan/tilt head can now be used with most existing Canon HD field “Shift-IS” lenses, the companies said. The Vector 950 Active—which complements Canon Broadcast’s lens stabilization Optical Shift Image Stabilizer (“Shift-IS”) technology—is a heavy-duty pan/tilt head designed to carry studio/OB cameras equipped with large zoom lenses weighing up to 264 pounds (120kg).

London-based Vinten’s digital electronic positioning technology allows for precise and accurate pan and tilt data from the head to be transmitted to the stabilization systems of Canon’s DigiSuper 100xs and DigiSuper 86xs long-field zoom lenses. That technology is now also available as an optional upgrade on the DigiSuper 100xs, DigiSuper 86xs II, and DigiSuper 75xs “legacy” models equipped with Canon’s Shift-IS lens technology.

Special encoders in the Vector 950 Active provide pan/tilt data at a resolution higher than any other product on the market, the firm said. This data is linked through a high-security protocol to the Canon lens, where it is processed to maximize the performance of the Shift-IS image stabilization system. (The result is a dynamic image stabilization system that can determine intentional camera movement from unintentional vibration.)
