Miller Camera Celebrates 60 Years At NAB

News Image
Miller Camera Support is preparing to kick off its 60th anniversary celebration at the 2014 NAB Show on Booth C9520.

"Since Miller's launch 60 years prior, the company has delivered more than 100,000 tripods and fluid heads, acquired several patents, and won numerous awards for its exceptional quality and design," says Gus Harilaou, Regional Manager for the Americas, Miller Camera Support, LLC.
"At Miller, we strive to continuously improve the way in which cameramen capture imagery through our innovations. We look forward to celebrating our 60th anniversary at NAB and cannot wait to see what the next 60 years has in store, as we continue to evolve with the changing times and influence the film and television industries with our solutions."
The company found success in 1946 when Eric Miller and his son Bob developed and patented the first fluid action head, which they designed to create smooth pans and tilts when shooting film in the field.
By 1958, Miller was exporting the heads worldwide, including the first tripod to Hollywood, forever changing the landscape of cinematography.
To support the fluid heads, Miller also began manufacturing polished wooden tripods composed from a fine New Guinean hardwood that is known for its strength, fine grain and workability. According to the company, there are still original wooden Miller tripods in existence today.
With the release of the first portable video camera in the mid 1970s, Miller transitioned from a company focused in the manufacturing of film fluid heads and tripods into one specialising in products for electronic news gathering (ENG).
Throughout the years, Miller has supplied many major broadcast networks around the world with its Arrow system and, more recently, its Skyline system.
Its systems are currently in use worldwide by more than 265 television networks across the globe, including the BBC, CBC Canada, CCTV China, NBC USA, and ABC Australia.
Miller will be hosting a series of 60th anniversary celebrations worldwide throughout the year in major markets, including China, France, North America, the UK and Australia.
The company will also be releasing new, limited special edition LP 54 tripods, built by hand as they were when first introduced, from remaining components left after the last production run of the Light Professional (LP), in celebration of its company's 60th anniversary.
NAB attendees will be invited to collect their free Miller 60th Year anniversary camera plate locking key ring from Miller's booth.
