(Valley College, New York--February 18, 2010) Bexel, a Vitec Group brand and leading broadcast equipment rental company, based in Los Angeles, ordered 36 Video 20 SB Systems from Sachtler, also a Vitec Group brand, for the Winter Games. Camera teams in Vancouver (February 12-28) are able to use this equipment to capture the sporting performances of the athletes at the Games.
The Sachtler Video 20 SB fluid head is ideally suited for electronic broadcasting. The head works perfectly within a wide temperature range of between -40 to +140° F (-40°C to +60°C). It is also an attractive solution due to its payload range of 15 to 55 lbs (7 to 25 kg), 12-stage counterbalance, and 7+7 grades of drag. Fast and exact setting is guaranteed with Sachtler's proven Speed Balance technology.
Perfect for Outside Broadcast Teams, the system not only features the fluid head, but also the Speed Lock CF HD tripod, which offers impressive performance due to its low dead weight, a double extendable quick fastener, and a transport length of only 29.5” (75 cm). Additionally, the package contains a mid-level spreader, rubber feet and an upholstered pocket.
During the Winter Games in Vancouver, Sachtler has organized a special service for camera teams that have problems or questions regarding their equipment. They can request advice from Sachtler Service Partner, Applied Electronics at: +1 604 439 7228.
