At IBC2018, Sachtler and Vinten will showcase flowtech technology with the flowtech 75 tripod, compatible with all 75-millimeter fluid heads.
Sachtler’s flowtech is a carbon-fibre tripod featuring what the company claims the world’s fastest-deploying legs, unique quick-release brakes, and easily adjustable levers for quick and easy setup in any type of remote production environment. At IBC2018, Sachtler and Vinten will showcase flowtech technology with the flowtech 75 tripod, compatible with all 75-millimeter fluid heads.
flowtech offers a set of two-stage legs with an easy-to-remove midlevel spreader, rubber feet, and a payload capacity of 20 kilograms (44 pounds). The quick-release brakes enable legs to be deployed simultaneously and adjust automatically to the ground’s surface, saving operators from bending over and manually adjusting multiple brakes on each leg, the release stated. A hinge-lock mechanism allows users to capture low, ground-level shots, removing the need for extra “baby legs.” Lightweight and easy to transport, flowtech 75 can be carried comfortably on the camera operator’s shoulder, with magnetic locks keeping the legs stable during transport.
Commenting on the product’s inclusion at IBC, Barbara Jaumann, Product Manager, Sachtler said: “Unquestionably, our flowtech tripod has been a huge success around the world since its official introduction at last year’s IBC show, and the current demand for the multiple award-winning tripod is beyond impressive. We are also very excited to say that visitors to our booth will have their first chance to experience the next part of the flowtech tripod revolution.”
