Vinten Set for Beijing

Vinten Equipment Hire U.K., a Vitec Group company and specialists in the dry hire of Vinten camera-support equipment, is preparing for an upturn in demand from OB companies as they get ready for coverage of the Olympic Games in Beijing.

Vinten Equipment Hire already supplies camera support equipment to most of the U.K.’s leading OB production companies, where the Vector range is the familiar industry standard. To meet the increased demand with the Olympics Vinten Equipment Hire has ordered 25 of the latest Vector 750 pan/tilt heads.

“We are in talks with some of our key OB equipment hire customers about their requirements for Olympics coverage,” said John Banham, Vinten Equipment Hire manager.

“With such a huge, global live event, it’s all about careful pre-planning and total product reliability,” he said. “Our customers already know that’s what they get from Vinten, but with the Vector 750 they have the proven technology of the 700 series and the familiarity of the Vinten system, all in an even more robust package able to take whatever conditions are thrown at it!”
