An interview from the 2017 National Association of Broadcasters Convention in Las Vegas with Joseph White of Miller Camera Support. Miller Camera Support Equipment designs and delivers professional fluid heads and tripods to the film and television industry, providing support for the world’s leading camera operators. Miller is a long time, global leader in the field of contemporary camera support and holds the first patent for fluid head design for film cameras, which it obtained in 1946. Today, Miller’s tripod and camera support systems are frequently used during electronic news gatherings (ENG), electronic field production (EFP), and digital video applications by the world’s leading networks, production houses, corporate, educational and government institutions in more than 65 countries. In this interview Joseph talks with us about the new line of ArrowFx Fluid Heads that have high-resolution magnetic encoders built right in.
Following in the tradition and reputation of the worldrenowned Arrowx series, the all-new ArrowFx is designed to be employed in television where augmented reality effects are inserted into the live broadcast and for cinema quality visual effects in the production of feature films and commercials. Featuring a wide payload range, precision fluid drag and Miller’s innovative 16 position CB PlusTM counterbalance system, ArrowFx delivers the flexibility, speed of set up and accuracy of shot.
Each arrowFX model comes with a 120mm sliding travel plate to help quickly rebalance changing camera payloads. Precision pan-tilt movements, supported by ball bearings, help deliver silky smooth starts and fluid, soft-stop actions. Precise floating pan-tilt calliper locks ensure bounce-free on-off locking. Illuminated controls allow users to work no matter what conditions they are in. The robust, high resolution magnetic encoders integrated into the fluid head, precisely monitor and communicate, in real time, the positioning of the pan and tilt mechanisms along their axis. The ArrowFx is available in three models, ArrowFx 3, ArrowFx 5 and ArrowFx 7.
