Mobile TV group choose Vinten Vector


In its nearly two decades in business, fast growing, Denver headquartered Mobile TV & Colorado Studios has done just about every type of sports remote pickup imaginable. That experience has taught them the value of good support. When it comes to camera support, that's been Vinten Vector series heads.

“We’ve got over 200 Vinten Vector pan and tilt heads, Vector 70s, 700s and 750s, spread among our 27, soon to be 28, mobile trucks,” said Philip Garvin, Founder and General Manager of Mobile TV. “In the mobile truck business, we’ve got to invest in heads that are able to perform and stand up to heavy use, but also heads the operators like. I think that sports camera operators are happy to see the Vinten Vector when they work with our trucks.”

The Vector’s pantographic counterbalance mechanism allows operators to counterbalance for different weight camera packages without changing out cams, which simplifies and speeds setup at sports venues. This combined with Vinten’s higher output drag modules provides excellent control for heavier payloads.

“Our trucks cover a broad range of sports,” said Garvin. “80 percent is baseball, hockey or basketball. Football is another 15 percent. We’re starting to do a little more soccer, and we see an occasional volleyball pickup. With the three trucks we built for the B10 (the former Big 10) Conference and their Big Ten Network, we’re doing all kinds of sports; basketball, football, baseball and Olympic sports like wrestling, soccer, field hockey and swimming. I’m sure there’s a sport we haven’t done, but I can’t think of any.”
