Miller Celebrates 60 Years At BroadcastAsia

News Image
Miller Camera Support has said it will be continuing its 60th anniversary celebrations at BroadcastAsia2014 on Booth 4D2-21.

"Since Miller's launch in 1954, we are continuously looking to expand our market outreach and have delivered more than 100,000 tripods and fluid heads, acquired several patents, and won numerous awards for our products' exceptional quality and design over the past 60 years," says Greg Thomson, Miller regional sales manager for southeast Asia.
"We look forward to interfacing with our customers at Broadcast Asia, as we are always looking for ways to influence the broadcast industry with our creative camera support solutions that, ultimately, improve the way that cameramen capture imagery."
Father Eric Miller and his son, Bob, developed and patented the first fluid action head in 1946, which they designed to create smooth pans and tilts when shooting film in the field. Less than one decade later, the Miller Fluid Head made headlines when the New York Times reported that the company was on the cusp of technological innovation. By 1958, Miller was exporting the heads worldwide, including the first tripod to Hollywood.
Miller also began manufacturing polished wooden tripods composed from a fine New Guinean hardwood, of which there are still original some in existence today. With the release of the first portable video camera in the mid 1970s, Miller transitioned from a company predominantly 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.
Miller will be hosting a series of 60th anniversary celebrations worldwide throughout the year in major markets across the globe. Miller has also released 40 new, limited special edition LP '54 Classic tripods, built by hand as they were when first introduced, from remaining components left after the last production run of the Light Professional (LP).
The LP '54s will not be offered for individual sale and will instead be both donated to museums and auctioned off over the course of the year.
