Miller  Camera  Support,  LLC, a  leader  in  the  production  of  innovating camera support solutions, is set to showcase a full lineup of Miller products, including the new Combo Live Pedestal Series, as well as the American debut of the Compass 23 Fluid Head at NAB 2016(Booth C7920).

NAB is the Mecca of the broadcasting world and we will be bringing our full arsenal of Miller products that  show  our  commitment  to  the  industry,  says  Charles  Montesin,  global  sales  and  marketing manager,  Miller  Camera  Support,  LLC. Our  products  feature  the right  feel,  with  their  smooth  starts and stops and quick setup, that consumers in the broadcast industry have come to expect. We also plan to unveil several new product ranges and technological advancements during the show that will be sure to leave a lasting impression.

Miller will be introducing the new Combo Live Pedestal Series at NAB 2016, which offers users a sturdy design for maximum stability, with reliable and simple to use features, making it perfect for live studio applications.  With  a  carry  handle  for  the  column  and  dolly,  this compact  and  portable  pedestal  range offers an easy setup with column tension control and a safety lock. Its air adjustable column system also allows for quick payload balancing. The Combo Live Pedestal series features precise-smooth low noise in the shot column with a 450mm (17.7) stroke, an independent dolly wheel axle brake system, multiple wheel positions for linear or radius dolly tracking, 125mm dual ball bearing wheels for quick swivel-turn action and a central hub locking column with adjustable spider arm supports. Finally, the series was built with a steering wheel diameter of 294mm (11.6) and 400mm (15.7), a dolly tracking width of 964mm (38), sturdy adjustable cable guards and a portable hand pump with pressure gauge. The pedestals will be available as a system paired with several of Millers popular fluid heads.

The Compass 23 Fluid Head is the newest entrant to Millers 100mm range and provides users with the capability to add more lens and rig options without completely going out of the 75mm price  point. It is designed to handle a variety of setups, from those that employ a light rigging with just a camera and a lens to a full rig adding on monitors, wireless mics, batteries and more, where standout features such as pan and tilt smoothness and multiple counterbalance selection are also required. 

To  accommodate  different  setups,  the  Compass  23  is  equipped  with  3+0  selectable  positions  of  high-performance drag and four counterbalance positions for payloads from approximately 4 kg (8 lbs) to 14 kg  (30 lbs).  It  also  has  a  120mm  sliding  camera  plate with  60mm travel  for  perfect  balancing.  This  new fluid  head  comes  equipped  with  readily  accessible  controls  and  illuminated  bubble  level,  superior pan/tilt locks utilizing disc brakes and replaceable tilt end rosette.

Attendees  will  also  have  the  chance  to  win  a  Compass  12  Solo  75  Alloy  System,  an  AIR  Alloy  Tripod System or a Solo Pod that Miller will be raffling off during the show. A winner will be chosen live at the booth  at 4:15  p.m.  local  time,  on  Monday,  April  18;  Tuesday,  April  19  and  Wednesday,  April  20. Participants must be in attendance each day to win.
